Where are we talking exactly. I lift at a world's and things piss me off there as well. The LA fitness where I live is a fitness club, not a gym. Hotter chicks, better juice bar, more cardio equipment with better monitors, cleaner lockerrooms, pool b-ball rachetball etc at LA. Problems are less free weights, rubber or composite dumbells with really strange shaped handles, no really gym brothers to spot you or bs with, and if you choose a machine some dumbass doing circuit training will ask to cut in every 30 seconds and will leave the weight at like 10lbs. Depends what you are looking for a gym or a health club.
