    I've been going to Bally for free for the past year using my dad's card but they caught me last night. Diamond Gym is supposedly the most hardcore gym in the country and only 15 minutes away but its $200/year. Does the hardcore atmosphere make a difference in your experience or should I just keep going to bally/school gym and save my money?

    $200/year is really cheap. Cheaper than most other places out there.
