Im not a bodybuilder nor do aspire to be one.genetics aren't there. Lol. I just love being active in shape and as strong as I can make myself.. What gyms do you think are the best for average Joes like myself.. I'm not talking aboutthe hardcore underground gyms even though i think I would like that environment.. I personally like powerhouse gym.. There's a lot of hardcore lifter some compete in both powerlifting and bodybuilding and there's also the people who run forever on the treadmill. What does everyone else think

24 hour fitness. To me, it's a great gym at a great price. La Fitness is nice too, but they charge too much

I heard that twice now. Only thing is I don't know if I'll be living in the same area to find a 24, where my main home is there is no 24. Ballys sux.Originally Posted by anabolocreg

I go to a small gym near my house. $5.99/month. Doesn't get any better than that. I've been thinking of joining Gold's though since they have swimming pool and different classes.

Is that a joke or typo, bro? 5.99/month for a real weight room?Originally Posted by fadi
I go to a local gym, Lafollette Fitness. They sell a key to the place for 200 bucks a year. I love going in at night and having the place to myself. They have a kickass sound system and I just plug in the pod and get lost in the zone. It is a nice place. There are not a ton of machines, but all I care for. It is free weight heaven. I like it because it keeps the pussies and moms away. They tend to go to the place across the street that is shiny, filled with machines, sweet smelling, and that plays Shania Twain.

A Metroflex affiliate just opened up 10 miles away from my house. I'll be going there once I heal up.

The best gym is your own,no waiting,can do circuit training,Always open,only your own ass sweat on everything.
Takes awhile to build up but well worth it in the long run.
Alot of deals in local papers,sales ect
Took me about 3yrs to get everything i got now(smith/power rack,dip station,adjustable dumbells,850lb olympic weights,all attachments,ect)
Still joined the ymca for the pool,indoor track,and occ lifting session($30 a month)

This sounds like a gym I would love. I go to golds gym which I enjoy but it is commercial. I may have to look for a serious gym in my area. I place with all metal plates and not 40000 TVs. I have 4 gym memberships though but golds is the best out of the 4. I only pay for the Golds membership though. The other 3 are hook ups.Originally Posted by weavedogg
