New Gym On Oahu

March 3, 2008 · Print This Article

I just got back home from checking out the new Powerhouse Gym here in Honolulu, Hawaii and I’ve gotta say…WOW!

Powerhouse is located just steps away from downtown Honolulu at 432 Keawe Street, in the space previously occupied by the Hawaii Athletic Club. I actually went there to inquire about the owner’s policy on independent trainers. It looks like my office is staying put at Punahou Fitness & Spa, and you probably won’t find me at Powerhouse. However, Powerhouse is a beautiful gym that is offering an incredible membership rate while they get started. If you’re close by, it’s definitely worth checking out.

Powerhouse is much bigger on the inside than what you’d expect. It’s got brand new equipment featuring Cybex, Free Motion, and Precor, a great layout with plenty of room to workout, group exercise classes, and a local owner. The only real negative is that parking is fairly limited. Park on the street and take a very short walk, or jog. You’d be going there to workout anyway, and the beginning of every workout should start with a proper warm up.

Powerhouse is throwing a block party to kick things off. The official grand opening is Saturday, March 8th, 11am-10pm . They’re also offering a special grand opening rate on memberships.

$1 Down

$20 per month

If you haven’t been a member of a gym before, let me tell you; it doesn’t get any cheaper than that. $20 per month with a $1 enrollment fee is an absolute steal. If you do decide to go there and sign up, mention you heard about it on I’m sure they’ll appreciate that.

I don’t work for Powerhouse, nor do I get anything if you sign up there and scream at them, “Chris Ranes from sent me here, and I bought my membership because of him!”

So why would I send you to a gym that I’m not able to train you at?

Honest information that’s going to help you achieve your goals. That’s what my promise is to you.

Who Loves Ya?

Be Strong,

    Aloha Chris,

    I hope this finds you in good health and spirits. I googled “Oahu Personal Training,” and that’s how I found you. You’re website is very interesting and insightful. Seeing that you are well qualified in the business of health and fitness, I have some questions if you don’t mind answering them for me please.

    My partners and I are looking to start up a club targeted mainly towards serious athletes who are looking to be bigger, faster, and stronger for their upcoming matches, tournaments, etc. I don’t know of any other trainers who have your knowledge besides my partners on this island. Anything that can help us, help Hawaii, be a dominating force in any sport will be highly appreciated.

    Thank you for your time and you’re doing an amazing job!
