This gym is either the manliest or the saddest fitness experience you’ll ever see

This gym in Kiev, Ukraine is a remnant from the Soviet days. It’s also riddled with rust and other unhealthy things. But watch the dudes who work out there and maybe, just maybe, it’s the realest gym of all.

I kind of like how grimy this gym is. Just all about weights and chains and dudes lifting heavy things with no gloss. But at the same time, there’s probably genuine concern that the equipment could fall apart at literally any moment. Such is the problem with locking down your gym on a beach, a region known for its tremendous penchant for erosion.

Either way, looks pretty bad ass until the squat rack breaks in half and stabs you in the groin. Maybe Planet Fitness was right after all.
