Our Story

My name is Lochie, and I'm the guy who started all this!

You may be wondering why I would do such a thing.

Well, there's ONLY 2 Reasons as to why we do what we do at The Bar 

Reason 1. Being overweight sucks.

Yep, for most of my life I HATED the way I looked and felt. I got to a point where most people do. The point where you're sick of looking in the mirror every morning and absolutely hating what you see.

That was me through and through. Maybe if you've been there too you will understand.

It's something you tolerate for a period of time, knowing there will come a point where you must do something about it. One day it slaps you in the face! You wake up, you look in the mirror, and you WON'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!

Yep, been there. Twice actually.

That photo up there is me, at my engagement party.

When I saw that for the first time, I had one of those moments.

Being overweight and having your confidence suffer sucks big time! Even if you're not overweight being unhappy with the way that you look is something that plagues everyone at times in their life.

That's the first reason I opened The Bar. I saw the changes that I could make in myself, but more importantly, the difference I could make for others. I knew that if I had the answer and could help people, who struggled like I did, well that would just be the coolest thing.

Reason 2. Gyms suck.

Yep, I am gonna come right out and say it! Most gyms suck. They make bold claims that they want to help people and make a difference in their fitness journey, but honestly it's a load of rubbish.

Big box gyms will often take anyone with a credit card! They are happy to sign you up, lock you into a contract and hope they never need to speak to you again.

I mean, you do here from them on occasion, like when your payment for the week doesn't go through.

How can I say this? I worked in commercial gyms, and trained in them myself for years. I have seen it first hand.

That became a driving force for me to open The Bar. I still remember thinking about it in August 2014. "I want to create a place that puts members and their results first. Somewhere that allows people to be a part of an amazing community where people help and support eachother."

Now if you have ever been to a gym, that may just sound too good to be true. And I know you and I could just be stranger's on the internet right now, but I am asking you to take my word for it anyway.

The Bar is an amazing place.

I created it for people like you. Because it is more than likely that you are a person like me.

I designed this place from the ground up.

To be somewhere you could walk in where the staff care about you. Where you can expect that the owner of the place knows every one of his members names, stories and goals.

To be somewhere that you love coming to, and spring out of bed to be at. Not somewhere you have to painstakingly drag yourself to.

And most importantly...

A team that you can trust. One that have your back when it comes to giving you the help, love, support and transformation you need to deliver on the results that are truly important to you.

We are not just another Toowoomba Gym. We are the place that Toowoomba locals go, the people they trust to make lasting change in their life.

So yeah...

I know we kind of got deep there for a second, but one other thing I wanted to let you know is this is me now:

Well obviously that's a before and after. They can't both be me.

So long story short, that's why we do what we do.

1. Because not feeling and looking how you want sucks

2. Because nowhere else really ever cares about making you look and feel how you want

So here's what I want you to do, stranger.

If you're like I was, and you need to make a change for a healthier, happier you, book a consult with me and my team.

I promise you personally that we will lay everything on the line for you to be successful and to Lift Your Standards (that's our catch phrase by the way, that's why it's relevant).

Guess I'll be talking to you soon!
