There’s a craving for a more sustainable, realistic methodology for getting in shape. Across the world the words “sustainable” has become more attractive than the “quick fix”, “fad diets”, “commercial gym” words.
Barbell Asylum is a private gym based in Southampton. Whether it’s weight loss, toning, strength or sport specific training, we have a program to suit you. We are a community where everyone supports and motivates each other. We offer group sessions, nutrition, 1-2-1, PT boxing, and most importantly a place that you can train without judgement and get the results you have been longing for!

✅ never miss another social event

Sleep is so Important. The secret to the cheapest and easiest performace enhancing solution is SLEEP !
1. Keep a regular schedule. Our bodies like regularity. Try to go to bed and wake up at the same times.
2. Keep alcohol and caffeine moderate. Both will interfere with sleep. Try to avoid caffeine within 8-9 hours of your bedtime.
3. Do a brain dump. Take a few minutes to write out a list of whatever is bugging you.
4. Turn off electronics. Digital devices stimulate our brain. We recommend unplugging from all screens at least 30 minutes before bed.
5. Exercise regularly. Physical movement (especially @ the Asylum) can promote restful sleep at night.
There are many more ways to get better sleep, if you need more help comment below.
P.S BONUS one, especially for men, helps to increase natural testosterone .....
6. Keep it cool. Anywhere from 15-20 C appears to work best at night. ( seriously for men this can be crucial to help waking up "erect" and ready for the day ! )
Helping our men and women lose fat and build muscle !
Is it possible to lose fat and build muscle in 30 days ..?
Short answer … YES !! 😊
Every single person that follows out protocols will see a drop in body fat and an increase in muscle mass …. FACT ! 🔥🔥
Why you should aim to be like Captain Marvel ….
Well ….. Brie Larson had to get ready to play a super hero in a marvel movie ….
But first - she needed to get into superhero shape
She needed to get strong , fit and conditioned
She had to train for 9 months, training almost everyday , 6-7 days a week with a coach, lifting heavy and following a conditioning program along side so she could keep up with the fight scenes for the movie. That’s 9 months, 270 days of training everyday for 3-4 hours a day, you do the math all I know is it’s a lot !
Why is this relevant to you ….
✅ Change takes time
✅ Strength training should be the foundation
✅ You need to be consistent
✅ Be patient
P.S I know. you are not a celebrity that has the time to train 2-4 hours a day, everyday , with a dedicated coach that only has you for a client… BUT…. I can promise you that you to can change the way you look and feel in the same time as Captain Marvel !
P.S.S What if I said it was possible to get sustainble change in 12 weeks , just 3 hours a week … 🔥🔥
Half term shenanigans …. These guys have been smashing their sessions !
Sometimes understanding the difference between motivation and discipline is one of biggest driving factors in reaching your goals !
❌ You don’t feel motivated …
❌ You feel you are just going through the motions
❌ You feel like it’s just not working …
✅ But, with discipline and a plan …
✅ You can get through these low moments because they are temporary, , only if you keep moving forward, no matter how slow as long as it’s forward.
✅ Motivation returns when discipline delivers results !!
These guys are always moving forward and understand that sometimes it’s not always smooth sailing, but the sun is always brightest after the storm !

Ever heard of this rule?
By that Pareto fella?
Where 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes?
It applies to pretty much everything.
Its how all our members get great results.
How .....? Read on ....
20% of drivers cause 80% of the accidents
20% of criminals commit 80% of the crime
20% of computer viruses cause 80% of the software problems
And so on.
“Okay, but why should I care?”
I’ll tell you.
Because the 80/20 rule goes for transforming your body as well.
In fact, it’s probably more like 90/10
The breakdown doesn’t really matter.
The point is:
If you spend more time on the 10 or 20% of things that produce 80 or 90% of your results
Then guess what?
You’ll get better results
In less time.
Want to know what that 10 or 20% is?
Here’s two key parts...
1. Hitting your calorie target
Aiming for fat loss?
You need to be in a calorie deficit.
Which means consuming slightly less calories than you need.
Now, in the simplest terms possible
You’ll start to burn body fat for fuel
Which means you’ll get leaner
And your friends will start asking what you’ve been up to
Don’t go mad with this and eat next to nothing though
‘Cos you’ll feel like crap
And you’ll become reliant on coffee.
(and you can’t possibly drink more caffeine than you do already)
Trying to build muscle?
You need to be in a calorie surplus.
So consume slightly more calories than you need.
This gives your body the building blocks it needs to grow.
2. Do strength training
Or resistance training.
Whatever you wanna call it.
Basically, lift weights.
And aim to get stronger as you do it.
This builds some muscle
Which makes your body ‘look better’ as you lose fat
Plus you’ll be less likely to get injured
And doing stuff will be easier
Like taking all 32 bags of shopping in from the car
Without needing “a minute” for the rest of the day.
Even if you just did those two things.
- Hit your calorie target
- Followed a strength training program
(and did them consistently)
You’d get impressive results.
I guarantee it.
PS. Rather not try and figure this out all on your own?

There’s a craving for a more sustainable, realistic methodology for getting in shape. Across the world the words “sustainable” and “S&P” has become more attractive than the “quick fix”, “fad diets”, “commercial gym” words.
