When my partner and I were looking to move back to the Inner West last year and he showed me apartments that weren’t within walking distance, my response was ‘...but... but... Ruben’s?’. When returning to your old gym, you question, ‘will it be the same!?’...It’s better. All the things I loved remained- the phenomenal instructors, the feeling of community, the great facilities with zero pretentiousness, awesome classes - and now, even more of them! Everyone is incredibly encouraging and the instructors really know the boundaries when it comes to pushing you beyond your perceived limitations of yourself, without putting you at risk of injury. I couldn’t speak more highly of this place!
@Rubens is an awesome local independent gym and health centre. My husband and I love being a member here not only because of the great variety of classes but also because of the size, variety of equipment and abundance of natural light and air (important!). Also Ruben, the owner is a passionate health & fitness guru and such an awesome leader for his team of trainers and fitness experts. Love supporting local owners doing what they are passionate about and sharing their expertise with the community for the betterment of all.
One of the most welcoming gyms I have ever been to. Really relaxed vibe I love the variety of classes on offer as well. Boxing and SFX classes are my favourite. The trainers are genuinely friendly and approachable, and great at what they do. Feels like you are part of a family when you sign up with this gym!
Awesome gym, relaxed vibe, great staff and team who make training enjoyable! Spin classes are the best in the area. Highly recommend
Absolutely awesome gym. Location is great - just on the way to Marrickville Metro. Parking is easy - making it super convenient. Coffee shops around each of the corners. Class timetable is suitable for when you're working and even if you're not working and want some later classes. Staff are amazing! Ruben is really personable and makes the gym a great place to visit. Favourite classes for me are boxing, cycle, hard circuit and kettle bells. Could not recommend this place enough. Not pretentious, great mix of people coming in which makes the early mornings easier to attend 🙂 I love my fitness and find you can make it work for your goals. Sign up and give it a go as I love it. Hope this review helps you decide.

Damiens Personal Training Story
‘At Rubens is without a doubt the best gym I have ever been a member of. With amazing, dynamic classes which are challenging and fun paired with the best results-driven personal training sessions I have ever taken, At Rubens is not just a gym it’s a lifestyle. The staff are fantastic, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and always there to support and encourage you and there is a great atmosphere of teamwork in the gym between the members and staff alike. I couldn’t recommend Ruben and his outstanding team more!’ – LUCY ROBERTS (Member – Enmore)
‘Great positive atmosphere: energetic and inspiring SFX classes (my favourite:)!! Been a member At Ruben’s for about a year and I’m still loving it!…whether training solo or in a class everyone (from different age groups and from all walks of life) trains hard but atmosphere is still friendly and unassuming- which for me sets At Ruben’s apart from the rest!’ – FRANCISCA OHIZU (Member – Marrickville)
‘My first class was a lunchtime express SFX Class. It was more challenging than I ever expected, and I was immediately addicted. Ruben is a great fitness expert and motivator, he has really helped me push myself harder than I thought possible. The gym doesn’t even really feel like a gym it’s more like a club with people from all walks of life. I feel like that is what makes the experience at Ruben’s so unique. It’s a healthy balance between fitness, fun and community. Over the past few months I feel like I have become stronger, healthier and ultimately I feel so much happier.’ – CRAIG IVANOFF (Member – Stanmore)
Personal Training At Ruben’s has been the best thing I have done ever.
For a long while I didn’t realise I was that big. But then I started to experience back pain every morning and always felt tired. My feet would go numb throughout the day and simple things like putting my shoes on were getting more difficult. Somehow I would justify it to myself saying I was too busy to eat well and exercise and it must be in my genetics as all my family are big.
Every now and then, I stop and look back, I don’t know how I lived like that!
The team At Ruben’s has educated me on eating and exercise and helped me see that my only challenge was my bad habits.I now drink 3 litres of water a day, instead of 6 litres of coke. I train at the gym 5/week and eat clean natural foods.
When I started my original weight was 177kg and now I weigh 117kg. That’s 60kg in 9 months! My energy has skyrocketed and I feel like a new man!
My long term target is 90kg and I am confident that I will get there with the guidance and support At Ruben’s. At other gyms no one even comes to talk to you. Here I feel part of a greater healthy community which I love belonging to and will never look back.
I am forever grateful for all the trainers At Ruben’s it is thanks to their guidance I have more energy, reclaimed my life and can experience living in a whole new way!
Thank you! – DAMIEN (Member – Marrickville)
