    Im trying to find a good deal at a gym for about a month or so. Bally Total Fittness has a 30 day pass for only 20 bucks. Has anyone ever been there before ... is it just some old lady place with running or what?

    To be honest it really depends on the location. I've been to locations that were absolutely horrible and I've been to some that were very well kepy and had very nice equipment. Go in and take a look. If they have the equipment you need then go for it.

    Chicks, queers and long haired dudes. The downtown location I go to, that is true. At least 50% of the guys that go there are gay.
    So women there are actually easier to pick up because of this though.

    i go to the one in San Francisco, which is the only one there. there are a lot more girls than 24 hour fitness. i've been at 24 hour fitness for about a year, and i didn't realize how sucky it was until i joined ballys.

    first off, the 24 hour fitnesses i've been to were pretty much all in san francisco, and 1 in berkeley. the one in berkeley is nice, but in san francisco, they're old, packed, stuffy, and dirty. it seems to them, numbers are everything (money).

    i joined bally's last december, and it was MUCH better than 24hour. yes there are more girls, but that's more to look at =P. the machines are much newer, and there's always 2-3 janitors/cleaners working at any given time. the cleaners do a great job on wiping down EVERY machine - every part of the machine. i paid $700 for a 3 year membership, which is comparable to 24hour fitness.

    comparing bally's the 24hours, bally's has fewer weights and lifting machines. cardio machines is about the same. however, it's less packed at bally's than at 24hours.

    in summary, i don't think you can go wrong with bally's. it does have a lot of chicks, but they're primarily stretching or doing cardio. you're still gonna get a lotta testosterone at the weights section.

    I know you are a shit ton stronger then me but I am going to disagree with ya. If you are the strongest person in the gym there is less motivation to get stronger, now if you are on the bottom of the pile not only do you have the inner drive to GFH that you would have anywhere but also the desire to become the alpha male pushing you that much harder.

    Yes the one on Alemany.

    Surprisingly, i haven't noticed many gays, if any at the Bally's i go to. that may be because it's away from the castro and downtown area. it's closer to the sunset district and daly city, which are mainly asians.

    the 24 hour fitness i went to (potrero center) had a LOT of gay men and women. not that i have a problem with it, just an observation. it all depends on the district.

    it all depends on the area. if you're at the sf bally's in alemany. you're going to see a lot of asians, because it's near the sunset. potrero 24 hour fitness, there's a lot of gays. i'm sure the gold's gym on market near castro is full of gays. you always have groups congregate in a certain place.
