ONE of Pietermaritzburg’s oldest gyms and home to some of the world’s heavyweight champions, Warrens Gym, continues to strive for service excellence and after more than 50 years, it’s still the gym of choice.

Founded by Warren Langman, Warrens has made a name for itself and is responsible for keeping some of the country’s top athletes in peak condition.

Warrens provides top quality cardio, free weight, and strength training equipment you need to get in shape at an affordable price. The gym is stocked with world-class equipment like weights, treadmills, bikes, a supplement area and is focused on giving members the best value for their money.

“Warrens is still one of the gyms that use old school hardcore training and we are proud to be not just a gym but a fitness regime and a lifestyle choice.

“We focus on exercises that exploit the full range of movements, utilising weightlifting, gymnastics and metabolic conditioning. They are brutal and effective and the results can’t be argued with,” said one Warrens senior managers, Mohsin Ebrahim.

The gym can be found at 268 Hoosen Haffejje (Berg Street) next to Crowded House and boasts over 480 active members on the system. It is situated in the centre of the CBD close to taxi ranks, convenient for those who choose to train late and use public transport.

“At Warrens we don’t only believe in competing but we also help each other reach our desired body goals. We try to meet the needs of all our members by doing different types of training ideal for our respective customers.”

Warrens is accommodating in terms of powerlifting as was previously owned by one of the world’s powerlifting champions, Phil Niemand. It is also currently home to Darien Bester – who in September broke three world records at the Global Powerlifting Committee World Championships in Serbia.

The gym is also home to a professional boxer in cruiserweight division, Thabiso Mchunu.

“For us as management, it’s not only about running a gym or a business. We always strive to make this a people’s gym. We want people to come in, break a sweat and at the end of their session feel satisfied with the hard work they’ve put in. They will hurt and beg for it to stop, but they will be back the next day ready for more and it becomes a way of life,” added Ebrahim.

Though formally known as a powerlifting gym, Warrens now offers a wide range of activities, including Thaebo and aerobics classes from Monday to Friday at 6am and 5pm. Free personal training is also offered to members who require assistance in reaching their desired body goals.

Warrens Gym is open Monday to Friday from 5am to 8pm. It is also open on Saturdays and public holidays from 7.30am to 12.30pm. For inquiries call 033 342 2524.
