Looking for a real men's place? The one in Kiev, Ukraine is definitely hardcore.

There's an outdoor gym with more than 200 machines. They are all made from scrap metal taken from old ships or even World War 2 tanks. You can also use old tires as boxing bags and you don't need to pay for any of it. The gym is completely free.

It was founded in the1970s by a Ukrainian man and it is still in good condition. It is maintained by the people. They install new self-made machines every year, also.
Interesting words: scrap metal (old metal), tire (wheel on a car), found (start something).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
