    Amazing stuff, I didn't know that they could cram this much terrible into one building :ugh: $90 a month, tv's in every treadmill, a water park, and gourmet restaraunt. I certainly don't expect most commercial gyms to cater to the serious lifter, but at least to people who want to do more than get a soy milk latte and sit in an innertube. I'll be a paycheck that there isn't more than two squat racks in the 120k sq. foot building... hell, if they have DB's over 50lb's I'll be surprised.

    Are "gyms" like this popular other places as well?

    rant mode off, sorry, just had to express my disgust somewhere.

    It'll make a ton of money too because most people don't go to the gym to get bigger or to really get stronger. They go because it's cool and because it makes them feel better about themselves.

    it's a business. it's purpose is to generate revenue.

    hardcore gyms cater to a very small niche of society.

    they're like gay people, as long as they're not fucking with you, leave 'em alone.

    i did some personal training at a club like that here...and hated it. startup was 300ish and 100/mth. the damn place was huge and the only real weight area was in the middle of the tiny indoor circle track.

    We have a chain in Michigan called lifetime. Im not exactly sure what the rates are, but it seems to fit the description. Although they have a nice gym the whole place is full of tools.

    I actually thought about getting investors together to open something like that in Scottsdale. I've been toying with the idea of opening my own buisness lately, my wife's uncle is trying to get me to go in with him on a Max Muscle or GNC franchise though.

    If there is a market for it do it. There is a gym around here that just opened up that is all wood floors, the machines that tell you if you are doing the exercise correct or not, coffee/juice bar, and TVs everywhere. It is in the right side of town with the money that people would pay for that and it is more of a social club and whose who than a gym. People will do some exercise and then go pay 6 bucks for mango juice. Why was I not thinking is only thing that goes through my mind when going by there.
