Dowe Dynamics Gym began life as a bodybuilder’s gym but has evolved and grown to be one of the top rated gyms in the Archway and Holloway area. Owned and managed by the world famous bodybuilder and former Mr Europe, Ian Dowe, it’s a gym which welcomes hardcore trainers as well as newcomers and those looking to take their training experience to a new level.

Dowe Dynamics Gym is proud to welcome people from all backgrounds regardless of their fitness level and as well as an exceptional resistance and weight training area, they also offer a wide range of cardio equipment including stationary bikes, rowing machines, cross trainers and treadmills on the first floor.

The second and third floors of the gym are home to an exceptional range of resistance training machines as well as free weights. Olympic Bodyart machines have been carefully selected by Dowe himself to ensure only the finest equipment is available to his guests. Dumbbells up to 200lbs, leg-press machines and benches.

The gym also boasts a treatment room for winding down after working out with a tanning booth, sauna and sun beds to enjoy after a hard workout. Dowe Dynamics has built a strong reputation as a popular local gym with tons of great gym reviews from its customers, describing it as friendly and great for serious training. The free weights range is particularly popular but if weights aren’t your thing, the gym owners and staff ensure you can access the wide range of other equipment and that you feel comfortable and at home in the surroundings.

Good, friendly gym with real old-school weight lifting kit.

A real muscle gym. Very rustic. But surprisingly not intimidating! The equipment is proper bodybuilding kit. Good vibe here. 20p non-returnable locker fee.

Lots of comments about this being a proper hardcore lifters gym, which is true, but it's unpatronising too - which is good. Great range of equipment. No frills whatsoever, but it is what it is. Lockers take 20p, nonreturnable.

I went at 8am and the gym was almost deserted. This is a serious weightlifting gym but I didn't find it in any way intimidating (I'm middle aged, female, out of shape and a lifelong gym avoider until now). Dowe's gym had everything I needed to get started on new strength training regime.

The gym is very well equipped and staff was helpful.
But sauna is at extra charge (correct that payasugym) and there was no cold water in the showers (only extremely hot)

Good Monday workout, although perhaps a bit more crowded than usual. Not a biggie though - remains the best value gym in the area.

More people than usually last night, but still not too bad. Best gym around Archway.

The best gym in the area for sure, at least if you're into weights. Wish more of the city gyms were like this, without all the unnecessary fancy threadmills, etc.

Excellent workout in this great value local gym. The summer lull is probably leading to less congestion as well.
