About Us

Not for the faint hearted

The muscle unit gym Barnsley has been built for people serious about training by people serious about training.

The gym is owned by 2 x UKBFF BRITISH champion Robert Taylor.

Our aim at the Muscle Unit was to create the best environment for producing real results, a no-nonsense facility with only the best equipment. We have friendly, experienced staff, who are as serious about your training as you are!

Muscle Unit Then & Now

The Journey so far

We opened in 2013  with around only 20 pieces of equipment in a 3000 sq ft unit, we set out with limited resources but ‘big ambitions’, we continually strived to grow and improve, introducing more and more equipment and have grown to the 8500 sq ft brick building today with over 120 machines.

In January 2017 we moved to new premises. Keep scrolling to see what we have now…
