    1. it's .9 miles from my place (of course this was by design)
    2. good variety of equipment although not the newest or best quality
    3. a lot of hardcore training going on
    4. normally no wait for equipment...(although this is probably due to the time I go)
    4. free tanning for "certain" people
    5 . the db's go up to 200 pounds

    Primodonna, if you're using anything close to 200 lbs dumbs I'm afraid of you...let me just say that. Secondly, I want to train with you, cause I need to be humiliated occasionally.

    I don't have a lot of functional strength right now

    I do one arm DB rows and DB incline presses with 70s

    But i can only do maybe 2 pull-ups unassisted. Hopefully i won't be hanging from a cliff one day and have to pull myself up to save my life

    Yeah, but you can throw the boulders off you if you're ever in an avalanche! I don't think I've ever seen that kind of strength in a woman. Good for you!

    I like the fact that when I say in my polite voice and I mean this I'm polite, "have you finished with that machine?" I haven't heard the word "no" once. Now how good is that!

    Whenever I visit another gym I'll just nicely say, "mind if I work in" and usually they just say sure I'm done anyway. Most serious lifters don't rest a whole bunch I've found

    Do you guys go to lift, or to live up the amentities?! If i had all what you have, I'd probably just sit around with a smoothie and watch TV on your satelite while I get slopped around by a hot "unnatural girl" in a mud bath, as I shout to the DJ play some 2pac under the strobe lights!!! Just kidding.

    The only reason I picked my gym, is because it's a hardcore gym where people go into workout, not socialize. I have 3 other gyms closer to me, but I pass them all on my way and laugh at those fools going in to work the arm bands. . Nah, they can do whatever they want, don't bother me one bit! That is the only reason I lift there, the equipment is sub par, nothing is new, lockers don't even work. But hey, if it gots Iron, count me in.

    The music is what I WANT to listen to
    I never ever weight for equipment
    I can "break wind" as much as I like without people complaining
    It is very close and open 24/7

    Oh yeah I train at home
