Specialty bar and Bumpers
I recently ordered the specialty olympic 'super' curl bar, some GQ bumper plates and some collars. I am very happy with all items delivered as well as the speed of delivery. It was delivered interstate (to VIC) within 24 hours. The super curl bar in my opinion is far superior to a standard EZ bar as it easier on the wrists and lets you do hammer curls too. I already owned some of the GQ bumper plates for my home gym and rate them highly. They are sturdy and look great. Perfect for extensive use in a home gym. Although the bar came standard with...wire collars, I ordered some lever collars due to preference. These are also sturdy and tight around the bar. Their construction is simple so i'm expecting them to last for a long time. I am very happy with and recommend these products.

PROS vs CONS
After spending previously about 10 years in the wholesale industry; I understand the pressures of selling sports and fitness equipment. Whether in Canberra or neighboring areas such as Queanbeyan; the climate is different, I’m no...
Deliver was a bad experience
I purchased a commercial grade upright exercise bike online as we couldn't commit in store when we went to tried out the bikes.
I paid to get it delivered based on their website calculated shipping amount (across town).
TNT delivered the bike several days later - they would not deliver the bike into the house as delivery was only stated as being roadside - dread to think what would happen if my wife was there by her self (one box is 68kgs).
TNT left the pallet the 2 boxes were on in my driveway after I took off the boxes from it and slide ...
Generally good, but....
The new store is excellent - clean, well lit, well laid out, open and with easy acces and parking. The range of equipment is also excellent. Most of the well-known brands and some not so well know brands that are still good quality. The prices are some of the best around, regardless of where you shop.
So what is it that causes them to miss out on that final star? Attitude! I have purchased gear there over the years and only once has a sales assistan been polite to me. Now I am longer young, but my money is as good as anyone else's and...I have spent thousands with them, having bought two eliptical trainers and a number of weights and bars there over the years. Is service with a friendly smile too much to expect? As with most gym equipment retailers, the staff are young males and that may be part of the problem. I am sure they can change their attitude. They just need to want to change! So come on guys, make a good business into a great business for zero dollars. Just smile and be friendly. Who knows, you might actually feel better yourself and it will make a difference to your customers! Range, price, quality of goods on offer, new store Surly attitude
