Fitness enthusiasts in the metro can now find three special gyms within SPARTA (Sports and Recreational Training Arena). Located at 126 Pioneer Street in Mandaluyong City, the 10,000-square meter sports center is house to 360 Pro, Sparta Calisthenics Academy (SCA), and now, a third gym in the area called Alpha Strength.
In case you might be wondering, what makes the Alpha Strength different from the other two gyms that came before it?
First, it offers training for power lifting and Olympic weight lifting. Of course, it also facilitates various fitness classes.
Second, Alpha Strength is founded and managed by a US Certified Level 1 Weightlifting Coach, Aaron de la Cruz, also known as Coach A. He was a Gold Medalist in 2011 and 2013 for the Philippine National Raw Powerlifting Competition.
“We’re all about making people stronger, because if you’re stronger, everything becomes easier,” says Coach A. “At Alpha Strength, you are not just forced to do reps, you are made to do things at your own pace. The number of work and the number of sets is up to you, it would depend on what you can handle. Compared to other gyms, we are really strength-based.”
As to what makes Alpha Strength stand out from other gyms, Coach A says, “First, we help people get stronger. We help them reach fitness goals. We offer different methods to attain one’s goals. We are also about changing people’s lives, we help people reach goals thru strength.”
