Great place, got all you need - heavy stuff to lift, a friendly owner and an accommodating space. On top of that it’s cheap. 5 stars

Really great gym, good quality equipment, with everything you need for an effective workout. They even had a sissy squat machine and a glute ham raise which is something you'd never find in a commercial gym.

If you are serious about strength training this is the place to train in Edinburgh! The equipment is spotless and there is also the possibility to train outdoor if the Scottish weather allows ;-) We felt very welcome and Martin, the owner, was very friendly. More...

I came to Edinburgh for the Fringe, but I occasional like to keep fit and maintain a healthy shape. Plus, lifting weights helps with the diaphragm. Great gym and it was 2 minutes away from where I was staying! The staff are all very pleasant, even though I'm a grumpy dick most of the time. You can put your own music on and there's everything you need: From 1kg-50kg dumbbells; cables; bars; racks; Olympic station; belts; resistance straps; cardio machines. PLUS! I joined with no fee or obligatory contract, which is fantastic! I could pay, train and then leave without no hassle. One thing was missing, sadly, that was the English flag. Every other flag under the sun on display, but that one. ;) Keep up the good work guys. Highly recommend. More...

We were on vacation for 10 days and were so lucky to choose this as our place to train. Everyone, including the owner Martin, is super friendly. The gym has everything you need to get a solid workout. In fact, training was the best way to start our day. It’s a no nonsense, get it done, awesome gym. When we come back, we are definitely training at this gym. More...

An excellent no-frills gym for people that like to get down to business. Everyone was very friendly and I enjoyed my month training there. They do have no contract one month memberships available. More...

The perfect gym for me! All the staff are extremely helpful and lovely people. They let me get on with my program. And are at hand if I need any advice or guidance. They are always adding new equipment and upgrading to provide the best exsperience. The new addition of gym rings is a lot of fun and great for testing core skills ;) thanks guys More...

I am not new to exercise but very new to the gym environment and was a little bit apprehensive about going to the Body Building Gym. I needn't have been. The team at the Bodybuilding gym couldn't have been more welcoming. They took the time to listen to what I wanted to get from attending the gym and wrote me a specific program that took into account my needs, goals and the time I had available to dedicate to strength training. It was definitely a collaborative process.

It's clear that the team know what they are talking about with their knowledge only rivaled by their passion for sharing it. They explained everything to me in a jargon free way, patiently and demonstrated the correct techniques making sure I had understood everything before moving on.

Was very impressed and cannot wait to see the results as I work hard with continued encouragement and support from Sharon, Martin and the rest of the team.
