JIMMYZ X THE BRICK
Seen them on our screens and wondered why we promote burgers in a gym?
Because they are awesome that’s why. And also because Diplo said so.
What feels better than a burger & a beer after a heavy work-out?
We have no answer to that so we invited Jules Koninckx & Louis Dellafaille to come work their JIMMYZ magic on Monday the 25th of September.
Free burgers, beers & beats for everyone!
This will be your only chance before they open up shop later this winter in Antwerp.
Come find us at Waalsekaai 57 from 17:00 onwards. Don’t miss out!
DJ line-up for the evening:
17:00 // CITY PIGEONS
18:30 // MORENA
20:00 // JUWLZ
PRACTICE WHAT YOU PREACH
Once upon a time, there was a boy named Arne.
Ever since he was a kid, he’d been driven by sports. By playing for the Antwerp Giants youth, he got in touch with strength training at a young age. That’s when he knew: this is what I love to do. Basketball slowly faded into the background and Arne’s focus shifted to fitness and strength training.
Over the years, through trial and error, he learned all there is to know about strength exercising. But he wasn’t always this mean lean fighting machine. There was a period of obesity. Weights alone do not always cut it. So he did a deep dive in nutrition and dietary customs and cut his weight from the 105 kilos in the picture above to the current 85 kilos in the picture below. To put that in perspective, he lost the full weight of a 8 year old. I’ll leave it up to you guys to find the 6 other differences in the pictures. (spoiler below)
This transformation obviously sparked a flurry of requests to help others in the same predicament. After successfully helping a few friends he felt his serotin levels were at an all-time high so he decided this would be his new full-time profession.
Things got real now so he had to back-up his autodidactic street knowledge with some science. This led him to follow a Physical Trainer course at the Personal Coaching Academy as well as the National Academy of Sports Medicine. He was now recognized internationally as a personal trainer (EREPS level 4). But the learning never ends and the self-educating is a daily feat he upholds in high regards.
His goal nowadays is to give his clients a decent basic knowledge of both training and nutrition. He doesn’t just tell them what to do but tries to educate them along the way. Arne had this to add: ”Someone is more likely to do the right thing if they understand why it is good for them.”
Are you looking for a scientifically based no-nonsense approach? Then you’ve come to the right place! Contact Arne now for an intake!
TAZU X THE BRICK
Beirut meets Tokyo in Antwerp … if you can find it.
The Vlaaikensgang was always a hidden pearl, but now it holds even more secrets.
A joint venture between Zao Wang owner Andrès Claeys & Julian Youssef from Central Station in Beirut, one of the top 50 cocktailbars in the world, resulted in TAZU.
Book a table for dinner and your first cocktail is on the house if you show them you are a member of the Brick.

As you may have noticed we have changed the lockers, finally no more looking for lost keys! let us remind you that even though the locks have changed the policy to occuping lockers when you are not in the gym has not.
Don’t be that anti-social guy/girl and we will live happily ever after.
Simple how-to-use: enter your code when the lock is green, close it so it becomes red and change your chosen code so it is locked.
Re-enter your chosen code when it is red to open it and it will become green again, ready for the next member to use.
Below the manufacturers’ take on the affair.
BOOKINGS AND CANCELS
As you all know we offer so many classes these days that a little weekly managing is in order.
For us to keep adding to the roster, we need to know how classes perform.
This can only be achieved if people actually show up to the classes they booked.
It pains us to still see classes with full waiting lists and empty seats.
We therefore adjusted the timing in which people can book and cancel.
This will only be possible during our opening hours, which are 07:00 ‘till 22:00.
Want more classes? Cancel in time. Or show up.
We would once more like to remind everyone to cancel their classes within the 4 hour window.
Cancel your classes on time through the app and don’t forget to check in on all locations with your QR-code, badge or card.
Phone, e-mail or social media are not valid ways to cancel your classes.
Your co-members thank you.
