Less than a Mile from the Convention Center
Beyond Limits Training is 0.6 miles from Greater Columbus Convention Center where much of the action takes place. For the sixth year, the gym will play host to a variety of athletes and spectators for the weekend offering up both day and weekend guest passes. The Arnold at Beyond Limits has grown to epic proportions the past several years is has become a hot spot while in town for the weekend.
What can you expect at Beyond Limits?
This is not your typical big box gym. If you are looking for rows and rows of machines or a “cardio cinema” room, then you will not find it here. However, we do have 6 squat racks, 20 various barbells, lots of benches, dumbbells up to 130 pounds, an array of Hammer Strength & Life Fitness machines, functional conditioning tools such as kettebells, boxes, medicine balls, bumper plates and strongman accessories. We also have treadmills, rowers, ellipticals and bikes. We even have a classic Nebula leg press that can hold a giant 2,000 pound leg press! Yeah buddy!
