Recently, the Pokémon Daisuki Club has launched the Break Out! Machamp Gym profile site to commemorate the Pokémon franchise's 20th Anniversary next year. The site not only profiles all three Superpower Pokémon (Machop, Machoke and Machamp), but the site also reveals some secrets of the evolution family as well.

Osamu, a virtual instructor at the Gym, reveals that while Machop, Machoke and Machamp can spend their time in battles, they can also spend some time helping trainers work out. As shown in Pokémon Ruby and Sapphire (and their remakes, Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire), they can also help with moving a family from one house to another. They are also capable of lifting heavy objects for warehouse projects and construction. Plus, they can escort hosts (including their Trainers), and are modest with the women. And they can entertain trainers on special occasions, including birthdays.

Sayaka, another instructor, not only informs us what we already know in their Pokédex entries (like how the belts around Machoke and Machamp's waists regulate their strengths), but also reveals some secrets about the three Superpower Pokémon, despite the facts that they share a rival relationship with the Timburr evolution family, that they compare the Geodude evolution family to dumbbells, and that they share the same moving experience with Vigoroth. What looks like a belt and a girdle that Machoke and Machamp are shown with is actually a natural skin marking. Plus, while some trainers can't tell the difference between males and females, they might take a closer look at the gender difference. And finally, while their Shiny colorations resemble that they've been tanning, they're still pretty valuable.
