MSM Reader Spotlight: Krystina Butel From Muscle Makers Gym

By Krystina Butel, Muscle Makers Gym (United Kingdom) – I have always been around bodybuilding and competitive bodybuilding, so owning a gym seemed like a natural for me. When I first bought this place (in Rotherham South Yorkshire, so it is very central England) at the end of March, it was literally a shell – no lighting or even electric wiring. We went to work right away and built it all up. The first level is the main weight training areas and upstairs is all cardio.
We have a lot of commercial gyms in the area that charge stupid low prices, but I believe that will only appeal to the people who want a average generic gym. My gym is ‘old school bling,’ as I like to describe it. 
The gym is 1,200 square feet, so it’s not huge but quality not quantity and all that. All the dumbbells (1-through-70 kg) are brand new and we also have some unique extras like a multi-grip hex bar, power rack, hack squat, non-assisted Smith machine, a huge cable crossover, T-bar row, Pec dec, sissy squat, etc. And a lot of the old kit stuff is built for life that I had refurbished to a high standard. I really tried to keep that old school kit but have it hot looking.


I also want women training here so I have a lever squat and glue machine, as well. I’m definitely  pro Team Huge Ass! And I am also on a body transformation. I had a bad kidney about five years ago from all of the extra supplements that I was taking. Then my thyroid went, too, from the amount of T3. So I had that operated on but after I piled on weight, no matter how hard I trained. 
I’ve stayed strong, feel fit and keep a hour glass shape with huge legs and ass. But I want it on a smaller scale so I’m having a bypass done this month. That will help me diet without needing extra supplements. Plus as I diet I want to train a lot more. Physique Jessica Rabbit is my ideal!
We also sell stage wear, bikinis, etc, have personal trainers, Bootcamps and meal prep, plus the 5% nutrition I have just had sent over and the C.T Fletcher stuff. If you’re ever on ‘this side of the pond,’ be sure to stop in and say hello!

Most of the reasons we hear why people don’t come to the gym are more confidence orientated rather than actual facts.

Andy is always on the gym floor polishing his iron, he is very proud of his equipment. He is a fountain of knowledge so is always eager to help other out with different training techniques etc. He runs the bootcamps for both men and women too.  Andy is 4 x Mr Scotland although he hates us broadcasting that it means he has been there and done that on the competitive bodybuilding side of things.
