    Their reps are such fags, but I think i'm going to get a membership just because it's cheap and be able to go places and workout since it's a chain.

    Well uh, i'm definitly going to be dropping weights and grunting sooo.... I'll take my trial workout today in an hour and report back :bigthumb: . There's a 30 day money back thing also. It's $35 / mo.

    Yes I'm a Marine.
    My pic is of a Drill Instructor (could be Sgt, SSgt, or Gunny) with the Devil Dog, yes. It's a promo pic basically. I grabbed it off usmc.mil

    watch out for the 30 day money back thing..a lot of times you have to sign a log, have to go so many times a week, etc etc to get that.

    I go to a Bally's in suburban Connecticut. They dont allow chalk (I dont use is anyways). Real clusterfuck on Mondays from 4:30-8. No one said anything about me deadlifting though, unless you count the droves of people asking if I'm training for something specific. (Why yes I am, strength asshole). They damn sure don't say anything about grunting. Ask the tool who drops both dumbells from full extension after a set of Flat Bench Press w/ the 65's (woah dude, thats impressive!).

    I go to Hamden, about 25 min away from Bridgeport, but theres def ones closer to you. I dont know if different ones have different rules, but might as well go for a visit and ask the questions to your tour guide.

    Bally's must've really changed. When I went to one in '95 they had an awesome free weight section, complete with chromy 55lb bars.

    I go to Bally's as well. While probably not ideal for a powerlifter, if you can't get in shape with the equipment they already have at hand, you're a fag. :big grin:

    I worked out at one in the Bronx, it was the fuckin worst. Like I said, the Hamden one is relaxed about different lifts and shit (although I never tried to bring chains or bands, if thats how you roll). Only downside is that its fuckin packed during rush hour Mondays. Oh yea, the DB's only go up to 85. Other than that, PT's dont really hassle and everyone pretty much minds their own business (in terms of unwanted advice). Oh yea, theres only one rack (but at least there is one).

    They're going to make it as difficult as possible for you to get your money back.
    I'm not sure how they are nowadays, but there have been alot of complaints about Bally's unethical business practices. One of their salesmen signed me up for two extra memberships right before he was fired :mad:
