There used to be an Excel Gym on Mason near 10 with competitions, leader boards et cetera in the back. The front was a commercial gym, not sure if still there.
I've found the Houston LA Fitness facilities are decent. Usually multiple racks and cages, they allow Olympic lifts and if you clean up generally chalk is fine. Plus yoga pantsed asses galore.

[QUOTE=TexasGuy;3803250]I grew up in Katy but that was before it stretched like one thousand miles from Richmond to Navasota basically. Where more specifically?
I live right off of 99 as far north in Richmond as you can get. Maybe a mile S of Westpark tollway. I basically live in Katy with a Richmond address. I'll look into Excel gym. I ended up going to the 24 hr fitness. It was the most convenient location/price, but Not much eye candy, only one rack, one cage... maybe i'll take a look at LA.. Metroflex sounds cool, but its farther than I want to drive. Thanks, man.

yep. i checked it a while ago. Most of the gyms are either out of business, or too far away from me. Houston is a huge city. The closest one is metroflex, which I am going to visit, but it seems a little farther than I'd like to drive.

Metro is definitely a hard core gym with motivational people around but with few exceptions you can perform the same lifts in LA Fitness in my experience.

cool, thanks man. Yeah, 24 hr has the octagon plates. I friggin hate them. I was having the same complaint with deads. it's driving me nuts. also, the only bar for chins is'nt a knurled bar. it's so smooth that you just slip right off. it's killing me right now. whoever designed them has never done a pull up ever. straps slip off too. ugh. I loved my gym in ohio.
