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 check out these vids from 1986 by Mark B, c/w guest appearance by Gym Boss's bicep at 3m28s, 1986 Mark B's contest, 1992 by Sue B and 2009 (21MB) by Goatboy!
