Best gym ever! Staff and members are super friendly and helpful. Not too crowded and heaps of equipment.
Used this gym whilst my gym was still closed for Covid. Great equipment (bars especially), highly free weight based which is a positive. Friendly staff (favourite being Ruby) who were... read more very welcoming and kept the facility very clean. Although I didn’t try any classes there seemed to be a wide variety, and I was pleased to see that the owner, Ruben, is an integral part of the gym, teaching classes and being on the floor. I would recommend this gym to anyone and I would have signed up if I didn’t already work at a gym and get free access.
I love this gym! Ruben and his team are incredibly friendly, professional and passionate about their work. I have always felt so welcomed and supported, and the staff have consistently... read more dedicated themselves to helping me achieve my fitness goals, without pushing me to do anything I’m not comfortable with. I genuinely feel at home at Ruben’s gym and love being part of their community. Since becoming a member my physical and mental health has improved dramatically. The online membership has also been invaluable. Highly recommended!
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... read more 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!
Great crowd, staff and clients. Good mix of activities. The only gym I would go to in the inner west of Sydney.
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... read more 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.
My current gym. Love the atmosphere, equipment and people. Shout out to Ruben for knowing everyone's name and being incredibly welcoming. And Lachlan for being such a great trainer.
I love At Ruben's! I don't say this lightly as I've never been a fan of gyms but Ruben and the team are amazing! All the classes are great and... read more I have at least 1 of each in my weekly routine. The PT sessions with Tegan are great as she takes the time to understand what my goals are and then pushes me when I need to. The recent introduction of HIIT sessions with Baz are a hit with me! A smaller group session allowing me to focus on my boxing technique with a professional trainer breaks up the larger class sessions. But mostly it's simply the people. Both members and trainers. It's like a family that genuinely cares for your well being. You know you want to join up! 🙂
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... read more 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!
Whilst the gym I normally go to remained shut even after COVID restrictions on gyms were lifted, I decided to check out Ruben’s after a recommendation from a friend. I... read more went to a few classes conducted by a series of different trainers including Ruben, which were enjoyably challenging. The gym facilities are fantastic, heaps of great equipment and plenty of space. I was super impressed with how clean Ruben and his team keep the gym, and not to mention they were all super lovely and welcoming. Will definitely be recommending this gym to my friends and hope to return soon.
Thankyou @Rubens, I always feel welcome here. The staff are professional, down to earth, kind and very, very good at their jobs. I have enjoyed excellent classes with Tegan, Ruben... read more and Lachlan. @Rubens is a small gym with enough machines so you dont have to wait. Always clean. For the introvert- they have group classes with all solo exercises here so if (like me) you prefer not to pair up, its a win here. Its more expensive than some gyms but for me its worth it as a treat. I drive 4 suburbs past a lot of other gyms to come here, I highly recommend.
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!
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time here. The staff were always super friendly and approachable, as well as the classes always being dynamic and challenging!
I have always disliked the typical gym atmosphere...but @Ruben’s I felt comfortable and welcome from the very first moment I walked in. The group classes are great! There is no... read more feeling of competition or judgement regarding your fitness level. Everyone of all ages and sizes is treated the same at this gym!(the way it should be?). If you’ve given up on gyms, I would encourage you to give it one more try...@Ruben’s
This gym has helped me to transform my life. I have been a member for 3 years and the thing I LOVE about the entire team @Rubens is that I... read more was as supported, encouraged, challenged and welcomed on my first day (when I could barely make it through a beginner’s yoga class) as I am today (when I can smash out a boxing class and do some extra training afterwards). @Rubens truly is a gym for EVERYONE. All shapes, all sizes, all fitness levels coming together to share laughter and energy as we improve our health. It feels more like a community centre than a gym – and that is a culture that has been consciously fostered by Ruben and his incredible team. The other tip I would offer is give personal training a try. I was always against personal training. For many years I had thought, “Why would I pay someone just to make me turn up? I know what I have to do – I just need to do it”. What I didn’t realise then is that PT is so much more than someone making you accountable for turning up. With personal training you get a tailored program to suit your goals, you get professional expertise to correct form and avoid/manage injuries and you get VARIETY! A trainer has the ability to introduce you to so many different movements and exercises that it never gets boring. I can honestly say that training twice a week with Tegan @Rubens has changed my life. The physical changes have been fantastic: I’ve lost 20kg and kept it off for 18 months. When I started I could barely do step ups onto a box and got out of breath walking on the treadmill. Now I can do 20 “on toes” push ups in a row, I can do box jumps, burpees, I can run 7km and I can deadlift 100kg. But the biggest gains I have made working with Tegan have been psychological. I now use exercise to manage stress. I have learnt the joy of challenging myself, failing and challenging myself again. I have gained the confidence to get out of my comfort zone both within the gym and outside of it. And all the time I have had the most amazing coach in my corner: supporting me, pushing me, challenging my assumptions, picking me up when I needed it, giving me a kick in the backside when I needed it, celebrating my victories and sharing lots of laughter and wisdom along the way. So come and join the @Rubens family – and give personal training a try! Bernadette
Clean and Friendly. Good amount of weights, including free, cage and machine.
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... read more 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!
Actually enjoy going to the gym ? felt part of the Ruben’s team from day one. Excellent selection of classes, at various times of the day (appreciated as a Hospitality... read more worker who isn’t sure what 6am is!) Great equipment and guidance on how to use it all, with hygiene and cleanliness clearly a top priority.
Everything you need out of a gym. With a physio above as well! I couldn't be happier.
Out of the 8 gyms I have been to, At Ruben's has been the most enjoyable experience. It does not feel like one of those larger commercial gyms, the environment... read more is super friendly and accepting. I regret that I will not be going here anymore as I am moving out West. I will surely miss it. Thanks
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...... read more 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... read more 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.
I never thought of myself as a gym person. I like my lounge too much, however, three years ago all that changed. I decided to pop in and check out... read more what was happening inside my local gym. I met Ruben and straight away had a great feeling about him and his business. We got chatting and like a ninja he signed me up. I rocked up the next morning for a spin class (thinking who am I). I had a great time; even if it did almost kill me. I stuck at it, and it got easier, and now the going to the gym is part of who I am. I don’t think I would have persevered if it wasn’t for Ruben and his fantastic team. The feeling of family at Ruben’s makes the early mornings so much easier. I highly recommended checking out what @Ruben’s has to offer!
Rubens gym has everything I need for training. As a cyclist, I find it hard to find a gym with bikes that record distance and lucky Rubens has them!!!
Awesome gym, relaxed vibe, great staff and team who make training enjoyable! Spin classes are the best in the area. Highly recommend
Best gym in the inner west. Great staff and awesome equipment. Highly recommended.
I joined after the first CoVid lockdown. Being 70, I found other gyms loud and obtrusive. There are a variety of classes I can do, as well as more... read more challenging ones for the younger set. The staff are genuinely friendly and amiable. I will continue as a member and Ng as I can.
Really friendly welcoming gym with a great vibe - you never feel like just another membership fee like at some bigger gyms! Great classes, especially spin!

A fantastic gym with amazing energy and trainers.

They also... read more 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.
I've trained mostly with Ruben, Sandy, Lachie and Tegan and they're all a bunch of legends (shout out to Lachie for adding Missy Elliot and Timbaland to his playlist -... read more real MVP). They mix up their classes frequently so it's always challenging and you learn something new every week. The gym is always clean, which I love because I've been to some gross ones, and it has everything you need equipment-wise if you're not into classes. Classes cover everything from cardio to strength to flexibility and mobility (Spin Bikes, Boxing, SFX, Yoga, Pilates etc) and the trainers don't slack off either. Membership is affordable too. You can go to any class as many times as you want plus have access to the gym and you don't need to sell an organ to do so.
I have been a member here for the past 6 years and they have created a great community vibe, great trainers who are supportive and offer great advice and support... read more towards any fitness goals you may have. A wide variety of classes each day that keep you motivated. Highly recommend as the go to gym in the Inner West.
The best gym I’ve been a member of! Staff are fantastic. Equipment is kept neat and clean. The crowd is super friendly and positive (no gronks!). Highly recommend.
