If Taiwan's bodybuilding legacy could be summed out in three words it would be: Yeh Jwei Feng. One of Taichung's newest gym owners is well known in Taiwan as the pioneer of Bodybuilding.
Mr. Feng has represented Taiwan in numerous World International Events including the 1964 Tokyo Summer Olympic games, which marked the first time the games were held in Asia. Mr. Feng captained the Chinese Taipei weightlifting entry. Although none of Chinese Taipei athletes finished in the top 7, Mr. Feng said everyone took note of Taiwan.
Mr. Feng opened his gym in the Dong Hai area of Taichung in late 2006 It features a spacious second floor, which boasts a blend of new and refurbished workout machines. The work out area is clean and many of the machines are a throw back to the ones you'd normally find in Taichung's well known gyms: California Fitness and World Gym. The second floor also boasts a large kitchen area, which will soon begin serving protein rich meals.
This is more of a unisex bodybuilding center and not a place to run, as there are only a few cardio machines compared to about 40 various work out machines. Looking at the walls between sets will help inspire you, as they nicely decorated with retro posters of finely chiseled men and women. Many of the original classic bodybuilding posters date back to the 70s, 80s and 90s and are personally autographed to Mr. Feng. While some were given as gifts to Mr. Feng from legendary bodybuilder promoter and icon Joe Weider.
The proud 70-year-old thumps his chest and is passionate about bodybuilding. Mr. Feng prides himself on detail to working out every little muscle in the human body. He walks around the gym giving out tips and making sure you do the exercise with proper form on each set.
Today, he's lean and mean and a training machine. He guarantees results with dedication and will help train you as long as you're a member. He charges $3000 NT for a 3-month membership or $6000 NT for a 1-year pass. Few people in Asia let alone Taichung, have the knowledge, experience and expertise in bodybuilding as Mr. Feng. Give him a visit and learn from the best.
