Competition bench press at the Hangar

The new Bench Press coming to the Hangar

Any one who knows even a little about me or Hostyle know that I have a love for the bench press!

From day one I have had our heavy duty competition bench here at Hostyle.

Competition bench press at the Hangar


Nothing worse than trying to build your bench press on a bench that’s not wide enough or at the proper height to be able to engage effective leg drive.

Worse yet you’re training for a bench meet and when you get to use the competitive official benching equipment your whole “groove” is thrown off the day of resulting less than optimal results.

In the first phase at the Hangar when we open I will have this 2nd bench press on the floor and my goal is to have at least a third one by December 2016

If you haven’t used an official bench press for you training you’re gonna wonder how you ever did bench without one before.

The other cool feature of this bench press is the high density foam used for the under pad. Thicker and much more supportive.

The actual material covering the pad is made of a really grippy ( I really wanted to say “space age” here ) material that will literally seal your body to the pad.

You won’t be sliding around any where as you are banging out reps and hitting PR’s.

You often see people having to put down a “yoga mat” or having to chalk up your back! (that’s if your gym even allows chalk) to stop you from sliding or making it almost impossible to your traps in place as you drive the bar upwards.

The last thing you want is that when you start your leg drive your traps slide back instead of the bar travelling upwards.

A more stable bench press means – heavier workload capacity – increase in strength and power – muscle density.

More of my commitment to make The Hangar ( and Hostyle of Course) a truly unique strength and conditioning gym.

Introducing the Hangar Gym Ottawa

We are very excited at Hostyle..

The latest addition to Hostyle is our 6000 sq ft open gym – named the “Hangar” by Coach Greg.

We wanted it to be big and open.

Coupled with our 7500 sq ft of bootcamp and strength and conditioning coaching area, Hostyle now has a total of 13500 sq ft of Hostility making use even more of a “one of a kind” facility.

Since we opened Hostyle we have been repeatedly asked if there would be open gym memberships available.

People saw what we doing and wanted to be able to workout in our facility.

As our focus however, was primarily Bootcamp, Semi private and Private coach lead sessions we could not accommadate these demands.

I knew that there had become a need for a place like Hostyle where men and women could go to really be able to train effectively and seriously.

A no nonsense facility that was geared to getting results, no more wasting time with the Box gym yahoos who get in the way of great training.

  • 6000 sg ft of open space
  • over 50 feet of Crossfit rigging
  • Selectorized machine section
  • Cardio Area
  • Dedicated Powerlifting area
  • Exclusive – only a limited # of memberships available

I’ve heard it for years – “We want more!”

  • more racks
  • more bars and plates
  • heavier dumbells
  • more chalk
  • more room to train properly
  • tired of the “night club gyms”
  • more people who are focused on getting the most out of the gym

Well, the Hangar is going to solve all of that and then some.

Weight training has been part of my life , my business and my identity for over 28 years now.

I have always envsioned a training facility that like minded men and women can call home.

The Hostyle Community has been growing for 7 years now.

This is the final piece of the puzzle that I have been waiting to build since Hostyle’s inception.
