    Where do you guys lift/train?


    I thought this would be a cool thread to start.
    I work Daimler Chrysler Power Systems, we have a joint owned "Fitness Center" right on company grounds.
    The best part is no excuses for missing days, i have been training atleast 4 days per week for the last 5 years. Ill bet im in there 10- 15 hours per week including a class or two.
    They have a great staff, Nutritionists on hand as well as Physical Therapists.
    They even offer some great cardiovascular classes as well as some challenging power Yoga/ Stretching classes.
    Indoor cushioned 1/16 mile track, all we need is a pool.
    I still train at some local gyms in the area, but this is home.
    What about you guys, where do you train?

    nice move by Daimler, that looks like the ****ing ****... awesome place man... I'm all over the place, as the university's (OK State) fitness/training/athletics/etc center is currently being renovated... when I'm near Oklahoma City (which I am quite often) I'll stop in and use Univ. Central Oklahoma's new multimillion dollar facility... that thing is ****in nice nice... yup, there's my story.

    I used to lift at my cousins, but all he has is a weider machine
    so I started at our school fieldhouse and that was ok, cept they started closing early and I can't lift during school.
    So now I recently joined a local gym called Art's Gym

    small, but has everything, and the times I go I have anything I need, never have to wait

    I lift/train at the YMCA and at my Apartments gym as well. We are looking to buy a house at which time I will start building my home gym. The YMCA is a great place although the gym does leave some to be desired.

    I like the Y, but the problem is they're all so different... some are alright, some are completely and utterly underfunded and have absolutely nothing in the way of appropriate equipment... it's really quite odd.

    Yeah, my Y is pretty darn close to complete, lacking just a few things. The downside is that it is old and so many kids running around unchecked it gets old. I may switch to the brand new Golds Gym that just opened recently. I hate 24 hour fitness in my town and the other gym, the courthouse, is to glammy for me.

    i work out at a locally owned gym memphis fitness center that was once a gold's franchise. it's pretty nice 'cause they have most stuff you'd want. nuthin fancy like a pool or hot tub...one reason i liked gold's is when i go outta town i could workout at the golds for free and you can just about always depend on them havin good equipment. one thing i like at my gym is folks put the weights back after use...i checked out the 24 hour here but its too crowded and was more like a pretty boy gym...but the 45# plates painted powder blue were the last straw

    when in ny, i train at new york university's new gym on 14th street. Small, looks good, but very amateur. (example: one squat rack, no real leg press machine, only recently received dumbbells to 110lbs only, more lifefitness machine than a bus-load of lesbians could dream of) It gets the job done. At home, just outside seattle, i lift at a local town gym where again its fairly small, however, covers all the essentials while only costing me 18 bucks a month. SOLID (plus, there are milfs all day..... ) Sage

    I lift at a gym owned by the local hospital. I call it a prissy gym. Just recently got a power rack. Not many people use it so I have taken it over. Crap load of treadmills/bikes and weight machines. Just got some Nautilus "machines" that use plates. Dumbbells go to 100 then jump to 115 then to 125, and that's it. Definately not enough plates at the place for the amount of machines and crap. I always have to run around, searching for the plates I need. Has a pool, spa, and like a smaller pool for classes/rehab. Another area, forgot the name, where they do kickboxing and dance and crap. Half a basketball court. Two tennis courts outside. A room where they have spinning classes. Steam/sauna rooms in each locker room. Compared to everything else, the dumbbell and freeweight area is like maybe 1/12 of the gym. I don't know, it's crap; not enough room.

    I train at bally's--years ago my uncle tranfered his lifetime membership to me--i only pay 60 bucks a month so i cant beat it. Teh other gym in the area is more of a pretty boy gym so ballys is filled with old folks and, like sage--plenty of MILFS, the equipment is alright and it doesnt usually get so crowded

    This place has been open a little over a year. It's kind of small, but I workout at lunch when it's pretty empty.

    They just opened the basement with dumbbells, which is really cool. You walk down this old staircase into the basement. No windows, very low ceiling, and lots of weights.

    I lift at home, my basement dungeon. I have a body-solid smith press (yeah yeah it's a smith, but when alone they're nice) with all kinds of attachments and goodies, a set of DB's up to 100 (need more so I just use BB for the heavy lifts now) and a pretty good nordic track treadmill I just bought last year. I can do anything I can do at the gym, no lines and no driving

    If I go to the gym it's usually the YMCA or we have this local chain called Woody's, very kickass gyms.

    Yeah it is. I used to workout at Bally's but waiting for people on machines was too much. I guess I'm alittle impatient. I have a sweet Nautilus setup I got at Costco. It's a rack for squats and benches with a lat machine attached. Bench goes from flat to decline, to incline with a preacher set-up and leg curls. Oh and a 250lb olympic weight set. It was hard to pass up for 300 bucks.

    If I had a home gym, I would try to build my own equipment... I think that would be fun...built some racks, get some pulleys, etc... Then just pick up the olympic set and dumbells...

    Out here in Illinois, they have a chain of places called Lifetime fitness...definitely for people who have some extra money to blow, but the services are excellent. This place has like 4 basketball courts, a full size climbing wall, steam room, sauna, two different hot tubs, lap pool, indoor wading/play pool, a ****load of machines and free weights, a tanning bed, salon, cafe, etc... Its one bad mofo! My girl used to work there, so I would get in for free (otherwise, 20 bucks for the day) and I would chill there for a few hours each time. Get the lift in and just relax... Hell, they even have a lounge in the locker room with a tv and leather couches...

    We have a Lifetime Fitness about 4 miles from the house, i cant even train there, i dont see how anyone can. There are so many 19-30 hotties in this place im afraid of dropping plates on my feet. God bless good scenery but its too much in Novi Mi. (not that im complaining)

    Maybe someone will correct me, but i think its 900.00 per year for a membership. It is a great place full of all the latest equiptment like WYD points out but its a little on the high.

    Training at home is really nice-no waiting or plates laying on the floor.
    Took about a year to get my set-up that I have,searching for the best deals and sale prices(I'm a cheap MF at times )

    Here's my set-up
    Weider Pro 9940 2 Station Universal Machine w/2 wgt stacks
    has High Pulley,Low Pulley,Ab Crunch Pulley
    Leg Press,Lat Station,Bench Press,Pec Deck
    Leg Extension/Leg Curl

    Smith Machine (yea I know,but a good spotter when alone)
    has Dip Station,High & Low Pulleys

    Flat-Decline-Incline Bench w/Fly Attachments & Leg Ext & Curl

    Ab Bench Flat-Decline

    Weslo Cadence 450 Treadmill

    Stamina 890 Stationary Bike

    5' & 7' Barbell

    E-Z Bar & Tricep Bar

    4pr Dumbell Handles w/Spin Locks

    600lbs of Standard Plates (and still getting more )

    That's it a sweet deal I can get my workouts at anytime i want)

    Peace

    Ok, so I sound alittle too happy right then, I actually hate my gym, but it's borderline healthclub/hardcore, so it'll do..

    I workout at Sonny's sweat shop. They do not have a sauna or anything like that. It is a great place to have an intense workout. It is a small hardcore gym in Jersey City, NJ. If you are ever in the neighborhood stop by.
