interested in what gyms you guys go to
onelife. they bought out all the golds in this area (southeast VA).
It's ok. Pretty big, ton of free weights, average number of racks and benches. My biggest gripes are:
One, over the past couple of years they'be been replacing various good shit like hammer strength machines with casual nautilus bullshit that doesn't work as well, and adding shit like pic related which attracts nothing but DYEL-tier folk.
Two, parking situation is fucking awful despite the fact the lot wraps around the entire warehouse-size building. Shit like 5:30pm classes pull in like 80 people who all drive 1 car per person and clog the lot, people drive like absolute fucking apes in the lot (I've seen maaaaaaany absolute fuckin calamity car wrecks with shit completely totaled), faggots doing some cross-fit shit in the lot carrying around barbell plates running laps and accidentally dropping them on cars (this happened to mine), and the poor rape/car theft-friendly lighting.
But whatever, it's the only decent option I have.
Town gym, but my town is upper middle class and full of doctors and shit who go for health-centric stuff instead of just weightlifting. It's got a nice pool, and I have never seen a single weight left un-reracked when someone finishes their sets. It's a gym kinda similar to Equinox, but costs $45/month if that makes sense.
I go to LA fitness, it's the nicest gym in my area and the price was good, I got the 3 year one (I think something like 15-20 bucks a month). It's pretty empty any time before 5 and weekends are usually good too.
Bullshit, at this station there's 2 benches and 2 squat racks for like 3000 people, but like 400 cardio machines.
Fucking HATE that. You can do cardio with a big patch of fucking dirt.
20 power racks w/ Olympic barbells
1 oly lifting station
tons of cardio/weight machines(who gives a fuck about those anyway)
indoor and outdoor heated pool with hot tub
like 6 racquetball courts
climbing wall (10$ sesh though)
there's probably some other shit I haven't discovered yet, this place is like 3 stories tall
Las vegas chain gym. Free/month cause I work front desk, 21usd/month for regular people. 7 locations, my stacks out at 6 flat bench,3 incline,2 decline, 2 squat rack, one power rack, dumbells up to 100, all the machines you expect. Pretty cash tbqh sempai
G O A T
except >everyone is smaller than you
That is actually a reason to change the gym.
Dont want to train with pussy ass bitches, I need a hardcore gym with dudes I can look up to and who motivate me.
open 5am - 12 pm everyday
Ample free weights
$10 a month
Only 1 squat rack
No chalk allowed
It's nice because it's cheap and close to work but I miss uni gyms that were free and all inclusive
The anytime fitness in Aus i'm looking at is $13p/w and doesn't even look like it has barbells and adjustable weights.
The Zap is pretty damn casual looking too though but marginally cheaper.
What state OP?
>just bought a 300lb weight set (including 45lb oly bar) for $200 at sports authority (it was $250 but on sale, so i got it 200)
>bought 100lb additional plates for $85 (Again, on sale)
>squat stands for $55
no bumper platform, but i can't clean or snatch that much, so i can still set it down.
frankly i don't understand how one could need to slam the weights down, as no weights i handle are heavier than my deadlifts, and i set those down soft and gentle..
so... i don't see the need for bumpers.
i still go to my gym because i have 3 months left on my contract, and because i don't have a lat pulldown machine.
literally the only thing my gym has that i use, and don't have at home.
but i got a pull up bar and a dip belt, so i am not worried about never going to a gym again, come the end of my gym contract.
going to get some oly dumbbell eventually, but i rarely do dumbbell work, and i have a nice set of spinlocks with a good amount of weight (enough to do my presses which is the only really heavy dumbbell movement i do)... found that shit off craigslist forever ago, think i payed like 15 or 20 bucks for 55lb each (not including the handle, which i think is 5lb, but i could be wrong)
>barbells, over 80 different free weights
>two squat racks
>two bench press
>two calf raise machines

>95% hot chicks and gym bros, 5% nice fatties who mind their own business
>hella cool desk greeters
>sick ass, cozy locker rooms with no naked old men
