Where are you located?
57 Clement Street, Birmingham. B1 2SW. We are a stone’s throw from the Arena Birmingham.
Is there parking?
The street outside the gym is single yellow line, which is free before 8am, and after 7pm. There are also parking bays which are free before 8am and after 6pm, and all-day Sunday. If you are coming outside of those times, then there is a car park next door, which is 60p per hour.
How are you different to commercial gyms?
As an MSC athlete and a member of our community you are a name, not a number! Our highly qualified and experienced coaching team is 100% dedicated to helping you to achieve your goals. Our business model is not based around having thousands of members and only caring about how many people we can get through the door. Our model is based around building a strong and friendly community, and dedicating ourselves to giving you the all of the coaching, attention and expertise required for you to unleash your potential!
Do you offer day passes?
Yes. These only give you access to the Open gym (£10/day pass) and can be purchased on arrival.
Do you offer student discount?
Yes, the student discount applies ONLY to our Open gym membership option and the Open gym & Met-con option.
Is the gym only for elite athletes?
No, not at all! Although it is true that we do train elite athletes due to our high quality of equipment and high level expertise and experience of our coaching team, we are open to all levels of ability and experience. We are looking for people who want to learn and want to be the best they can be. Ability and experience level when you come on board doesn't matter to us, we'll put you on the appropriate path whatever your background is.
Who is the trial for?
The 28 trial is mandatory for anyone who is going onto our Birmingham Barbell Club membership! This way, you can get to see how we work, and try out the gym before you make a long-term commitment! It’s also a chance for us to see if you are the right fit for our community.
Do I have to sign a contract?
Yes. Our contract includes a minimum term of 3 months. After this, your contract will be on a rolling monthly basis. This is except for our 28 day trial for the Birmingham Barbell Club, which is a no obligation trial for the 28 day period.
Do you offer nutritional coaching?
Yes. On our Birmingham Barbell Club membership! We firmly don’t believe in setting meal plans, as they are simply not sustainable or enjoyable. However, we will coach you through your nutrition, set and adjust your calories and macros, and track them with you every step of the way.
Do you track progress?
Yes. On our Open gym & Met-con membership, your met-con data personal bests will be tracked based off our key performance indicators. On our Birmingham Barbell Club membership, you will be using our application and personal coach, who will be tracking every single session with you! You will take part in performance testing sessions in both our barbell club and our met con class, which is great fun and provides a great atmosphere as you hit personal bests!
If I am a powerlifter, can I just come in and lift?
You can join our Open gym membership and have unlimited access to open gym and all of our amazing powerlifting equipment. If you are not following a programme, you can speak to one of our coaches who can arrange a monthly programming package with you.
