About Us

Our goal

Gym-Talk was set up as an antidote to the unending parade of bodybuilding websites and fitness gurus that take themselves far, far too seriously.

Yes, we can see you lift, but you’re fucking boring.

Supplement reviews, bro-science and articles about workout regimes and diets are all well and good, but sometimes you need the odd scatological reference, wanking joke, f-bomb or picture of a man deadlifting with his cock and balls to lighten up proceedings.

What other people are saying

“These guys write some pretty interesting stuff, which sets them apart from 90% of all other gym-related sites that only asks questions like ‘What motivates you?’, ‘What’s your diet?’, ‘Top 3 Exercises’.”

Frank Yang, bodybuilding personality and YouTube nut-job.

“Great article!”

Kali Muscle, bodybuilder, actor, author, motivational speaker, philanthropist

“Never did I think I would be giving the thumbs up to a review that talks about cock so much!”

– Mark McCall, Managing Director of Activate Nutrition

“Love the Gym-talk witty writing style!”

– Sam Waterton, Martial Herbs

“The most amusing supplement reviews we’ve read.”

– Alex Mills, MuscleFood

“Singularly the FUNNIEST thing I have read all day. Brilliant!”
