Question Gym Membership Expired, Looking For New Gym

Is there a gym not too far from East Van that has a glute-ham raise machine, multiple squat racks and incline benches, and room and equipment for plyometrics? Ideally no more than $35 a month.

Was previously training at Trout Lake CC cause I like the empty raquetball room for sprints and plyos, but my membership expired and they're going to close down for renovations in April. The weightroom is also really cramped and there's often a wait now for the one squat rack and one incline bench.

Thanks

I called Sport Central just now. Initiation fee of $99 sours the deal. Also, the receptionist got confused by a "squat rack" and "glute ham raise" so she got someone else on the phone. Other person mentioned there's 3 squat racks, but doesn't know what a glute-ham raise is.

Anyone here have experience at Drive Fitness on Alderbridge? It looks like a nice place that's more geared towards developing athletes rather than bodybuilders. Does it get busy to the point of waiting for equipment, and how is the regular crowd that goes there? The prices seem good, $120 for 4 months, no contracts or initiation fees.

Steve Nash Gym was a pour experience for me, person who did my initiation sign up was a complete bitch(richmond). I go to the YMCA(Langara), pretty nice facility, kinda busy though.

Called Raptor's. 3 months for $100 is good, but the guy who answered the phone doesn't even know what plyometrics is.


Called Drive Basketball (Drive Fitness' voice mail is full) and they said they no longer do fitness. They've sold all their equipment to Gold's Gym, and their rates are too high for me.

Anybody know of any places like what Drive Fitness used to be (squat racks, GHR, plyometrics) for $35 a month or less without initiation fees?

Revs in Burnaby, $35 a month, no contract, not initiation fees
They have racquetball courts, and most people don't know there is a gym attached to the bowling alley so the weight room is not usually busy.

Hmm I never knew they had a gym there either. Do you work out there? Squat racks, GHR, plyometric area and equipment?

They always have open racquetball courts so you could possibly use that as a plyometric area, not really too sure what equipment you would need. I'm pretty sure they have 2 squat racks.

If you want 'cheap' but adequate, then you can try Fit Express. It's $19.99 a month, but I think you have to agree to sign for a year or two. They have a location in North Burnaby at Gilmore and Hastings, and one on 1st Ave by Commercial.
I'm thinking of cancelling my membership there since I have a gym at work now, maybe you'd want to buy my membership from me?

I like Revs myself, its relatively quiet there, I believe they're currently in the process of upgrading their equipment and doing some renovations as well. $35 a month is not bad...especially for someone like me who doesn't go consistenly enough to warrant a contract.
