    Could be worse, here at school I have to plan everything around certain times of the day b/c you can't just go whenever you want. Their are only certain times where there isn't a line to get in . Imagine waiting 45mins just to get in then waiting more time with the jerks wasting your time doing nothing

    My gym sucks more than your gym!

    Closes at 10 P.M., --6 P.M. on week-ends.

    No stiff-legged deadlift stand. No dumbells heavier than 110 lbs. Only ONE incline bench. No drink bar. Anti-social staff. No powerlifting allowed. (It's a Gold's, if you haven't guessed yet.)

    heck my gym closes at 9pm m-f and at 4pm on the weekend. I am lucky at least because they said I could have a key if I wanted but if anything happens I hate to be blamed.

    What is the deal with Golds not letting you powerlift?? are they only looking for p*ssies to come work out there? Do they decide what is power lifting? Excuse me sir there is no lifting more than 300lbs in this gym you will need to leave now... please.



    Yeah our gym dumbbells only got to 110 and there is only one set of each so if you need something and all the "talkers" are working out you are screwed.

    If I had the money I would open a gym and have none of those crappy machines just tons and tons of free weights, racks and benches.. no fancy pretty t-shirts and juice bars.. wimps need not apply for a membership.

    Yes, it's true. It even says it on the membership card you have to swipe when you check in:

    No chalk
    No powerlifting
    No dropping weights
    No tank-tops (!!??!)

    I asked about it and the friendly manager said that it's "not gonna be THAT kind'a gym." (what kind of gym would that be? A REAL one?)

    On the plus side, they do have a special women-only gym, daycare center, and lots n' lots of treadmills.

    I travel a lot for work so I keep my Bally's membership active (although I don't lift at Bally's when I'm home) no offense to you guys in the north east but the Bally's up there (NJ and NY) are pitiful. usually small with limited weights and what equipment they do have is circa 1980. I remember benching at one place in NJ (the whole gym was barely bigger than my garage) and my back stuck to the bench because they had duct taped the padding back together!

    But still someone made the best point... the worst gym is the one that's too crowded. (that would be bally's in Miami)

    thats why the mp3 player is the best thing since sliced bread. cant stand when people are standing in the way talking to each other, or grutning while they lift, or dropping weights.....i dont even look at anyone.

    The best advice yet. If you're so busy looking at everyone else, you aren't helping yourself. My rule #2 don't let other peoples priorities dictate my own sucess or failure.
