” Like the bodies it builds, Brickhouse Gym just keeps getting bigger.
And now, according to this week’s Your Winnipeg poll, it’s the best gym in the city.
Paul Taylor started the gym six years ago on Corydon, but has since grown to two bigger locations, at 425 Century St. and 418 Gertrude Ave.
“We decided to close the Corydon gym and open an Osborne facility that was like five times the size, a full fitness facility instead of a boutique personal training studio,” Taylor said. “Century was double the size of the Corydon gym, but Gertrude is about five times bigger. So just a natural progression.”
One-on-one training is still the backbone of Brickhouse, though.
“A lot of places don’t do bonafide one-on-one training,” Taylor said. “There’s a lot of group classes and boot camps out there — which we also do — but we stay true to our personal training.”
Another new innovation: 24-hour access.
“We try to cover all different ideas of how people want to train, if they want to train on their own, they want to train with a trainer, they want to train with a group.”
The summer camps can attract up to 20-30 people, both female-only and co-ed.
It’s pretty hardcore, Taylor says — in that they focus on working with body weight, not machines.
“It’s just more functional, more natural. If you ever find yourself in a real-life situation … it’s not going to be in this structured plane of movement you can’t deviate from. You need to adapt to the weights, just like you’d adjust to real life.”
Just ask client Dirk Hoeppner, who’s tripled in strength in 22 months of training.
“I couldn’t do a chin up at all, and now I can do a bunch of chin-ups,” said Hoeppner, who can deadlift 335 lbs., well over double his weight.
And the first class is free, Taylor says.
“If you come here, you’ll get hooked.”

This Ringette season i asked teams attending our dryland to write a essay or piece of what it takes to make it to the podium at provincials and nationals.
One of the athletes wrote this piece that i’d like to share.
Two Hard Laps
U16 Magic 2013 / 2014
Skate faster than you ever have before
Lap after lap.
Keep your head up and don’t stop
Feel your blades cut into the ice and hear the sharp noise it makes
Stride after stride
Feel the sweat trickle down you forehead when you finally take a break for water
You tell yourself to keep going a while longer
Snow sprays when you stop before your coach
Gasping for air
Two Hard Laps
What would it take us
to get to nationals – really?
A lot more two hard laps that’s what
And multiple sets of 100 push ups
I believe as long as we put the effort in we’ll see results
It’s unrealistic to believe we’re going to get anywhere without a little push
Really every accomplishment ever started with the decision to Try
If that’s all we have to do – try
Then why not just do it.
At Practices, Games and Workouts
When your open the fridge at meal time
or in the food court with your friends
All kinds of decisions you make can influence your performance
On a smaller scale If you and another girl are racing for a loose ring, why not go for it?
Chances are 50/50
If you used all your energy breaking up the ice but are now faced 1 on 1 with the goalie, make a move!
Everything starts with the decision to try
We are so passionate about our sport.
It took each of us a lot to get here and it takes a lot everyday to stay here so why not be the absolute best we can be as a team while we’re at it?
Being a successful team is more than team bonding
1 practice a week
1 Game a week and 1 workout
It’s about working together to create something you could never do by yourself
So I’d encourage everyone to think about that when they won’t pass to someone because they doubt their abilities or their hogging the ring all to themselves in the offensive end
A team effort is bigger than one person.
No matter how driven to succeed you are
Remember that you still can’t carry the ring over the blueline by yourself.
I want to be team Toba and represent the province at Nationals just as badly as every other person on this team
I hope we can come together and prove that it’s a team effort
No one is any less driven.
