Gym view
Gym Boss  For the last 30 years, having reached his rather modest bodybuilding and windsurfing peak, Myles Irvine has sat behind the gym desk doing nothing. The business meanwhile runs itself. Mid afternoon he can usually be found asleep out the back, in which case please train quietly. Being a Scotsman his generosity is of course legendary. We hope to have a page of glowing testimonials here in time, but first have to sift through the large backlog of complaints. When not at the gym he breeds the Riverside® Passiflora, Oh and his defiant wife Natalie Irvine does amazing bellydance stuff.

History  Roy’s Gym in Hampton Wick (now demolished) was set up in the early 1970’s by Roy, a wrestler. A few years after opening he sold it to Bob Wood and Myles Irvine started training there in about 1977. In 1983 Bob set up the Riverside Gym as a sister gym to Roy’s with very much the same look and Myles took it over in 1985. To see what the Riverside Gym looks like & how little things have changed over the years (pride) check out these vids from 1986 by Mark B, c/w guest appearance by Gym Boss’s biceps at 3m28s, 1986 Mark B’s contest and 1992 by Sue B.
