Had the pleasure of being a @Ruben’s member while living in Marrickville. Ruben is always about, and every staff member is super friendly and approachable if you wish. They also leave you to your own devices if you so desire as well. Great range of equipment so you don’t get bored, and plenty of character. I’m sad to leave (because we left the area), but would highly recommend to anyone.
The staff @Rubens are fantastic and make this gym great. They are always friendly, helpful and extremely knowledgeable. Since becoming a member I’ve met some wonderful locals and made some great friends. Being a member of Ruben’s is like having an extended family... it was one of the things I missed during lockdown. The classes are fun, upbeat and challenging. @Rubens is a fabulous gym.
I highly recommend this gym as the entire @Rubens team are extremely friendly and helpful. They are all about working with you at your speed to improve your fitness and health. The team have created a fantastic culture and environment that makes you feel very welcome. Of all the gyms I've been to, this is by far the best!
The thing I love most about @Ruben’s is that it doesn’t feel like a typical gym at all. You’re not walking into a simulated nightclub with a competitive vibe and pushy salespeople. You’re walking into a community of friendly people of all ages, sizes and fitness levels having a go and having fun. It reflects the Marrickville community as a whole – diverse, accepting and unpretentious. And the team is WONDERFUL. They know everyone by name, work their butts off and have an infectious enthusiasm. I recommend personal training sessions because it’s personalised and I learned so much. Tegan is the best!
This is the best gym I've ever been a member of. Super friendly team members, great community atmosphere and awesome classes. Couldn't recommend it enough!

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)
