I have a gym quite close to where I live and I’ve been training there (on and off!) for the last 20 years or so, the famous ‘Galway City Gym’. I’ve always thought this gym was a fantastic place to train and in recent years it’s become a ‘mecca’ for people who want to get in shape and compete in bodybuilding and physique. The gym has had many famous athletes through the doors and turned out many winning bodybuilders so it’s no wonder it’s earned the nickname ‘the home of champions’.
As a filmmaker, I’m always on the lookout for things to film so recently when I saw the female members preparing for upcoming fitness competitions I decided to tell the story. I shot this mini docu in the space of about 3 hours on a Sunday evening last July. The girls were great to work with and very obliging. Look out for more videos like this coming soon!
