Figured I'd answer my own questions:
-there are 2 squat racks; 1 half, and the other full
-the DBs go up to 120 LBs
-there is no platform for deadlifting

they also have a full compliment of kettle bells, a spin room and a general stretch/yoga room. They will not have punching bags.

What are you guys paying?

The girl offered 90 initiation fee and $50/month. It drops to $45 after 2 years for the basic package. For the tier 1 package with all the classes it's a $120 fee and $60/month dropping to $55 after 2 years.

The pricing scheme is nothing compared to Fitness World where it's $40/month for 2 years dropping to $20. The girl wouldn't budge on price so I'll be sticking to Golds where I pay $30/month.

Also, zero hotties

I've been at Golds for a few years and was paying about 45-50/mth, but before that I was with fitness world paying 20/mth. They let me sign back up for 24/mth + 50 initiation fee.

Whoa parking is disgusting after 3. You literally has no space to park and if you do its tight as hell. Will probably not go at this time anymore.

Do you guys know when it will be empty/less busy?

Also, bring your own locks. Free locker to use!

That's ridiculous. Considering how cheap Club 16 is. IMO, Club 16 and Sports Nash Fitness is on the same calibre in what they have to offer, except Nash charges like 3-4 times the price.

A gym is a gym, you go there to workout, and to improve your health, not to go there to be seen or be involved with groupie shit while taking up time and space on exercise equipment that others are waiting to use. A gym is not a place to social.

If being seen or "in" is that important to you, go sign up at Steve Nash Sports Club.

But please GTFO out of my way if I'm actually trying to work out instead of flexing in the mirror or trying to creep on chicks. Thanks.

Yeah, tried out brentwood. Nice and big with new equipment but the parking is nuts sometimes.

Hey Mike,

Check out this site and use the mirrors to start.

i think i expressed myself wrong, what i meant is that the heatbags in that area are probably going to be the ones socializing, thinking theyre nuts hogging the bench 3 people at a time. I hate it when fuckers do that at Bonsor or any rec gym, it takes up my time and takes up the space in the gym.
