    I am going to be in LA for a couple weeks and wondered if anyone could recommend me a gym near West 2nd Street in Santa Monica to workout at. I don't mind spending a few bucks to get a temporary pass, but was hoping for something close by.

    I was hoping 10-15 minute walk... Apparantly Equinox is near by and I can get a cheap two week pass there. Is it a decent gym?

    Actually just found out its 24 hour fitness that I have a free pass at... looks like a shitty gym, but should suffice.

    There's a 24 hour on ocean and 28th i think? I used to hit that one up every once in a while, It's kinda small and always packed.

    The one I am going to is 1417 2nd Street. Saw pics of it online - bit of a joke, but I'm there on vacation anyway.

    There is a 24hour within walking distance from that near 4th and Arizona, i believe. It's smaller than my nuts after i nut, but it's there and has most of what you'll need. Otherwise you can take two buses to get up to Ocean Park and 31st where there is a nice sized 24 hour (where I lift).

    Note: You are walking distance to Fathers Office (on Montana). Go there at 5 and get one of their burgers. It'll blow your mind.

    I love the Father's Office burger more than life itself sometimes. The first time I took a bit out of this burger, the juices oozed out of the sides of the patty. The blue and gruyere cheeses melt over the burger in cheesey perfection, while the caramelized onions and the greens round the sandwich off to the T.

    I understand how this is often seen more of a sandwich than a burger because of the baguette used, I won't argue with that distinction. But DAMN is it a good "sandwich".

    Yup... she moved from Toronto to LA a few years ago. My brother moved to Toronto in the summer, so I will be visiting early next year. We'll definately hit up the gym then.

    Yeah, the pics of the gym near where I am staying looks like tiny... I will have my sis's car when she is working so I will probably hit up the Ocean park when I can... When's a good time to go?

    Might just take you up on a 7:30'er...

    FYI, I am highly excited to buy Jack3d or white flood and workout! I can't find any of that stuff where I live.
