    Some friends of mine are thinking about starting a gym. They want some feedback as to what the majority of people that workout want to see in a new gym. Since this is the only forum I know of that actually has people that do more than curls, I thought Id ask you all.

    Tell me what you like about your gym, what bothers you, etc. Ill pass the info on to them.

    Go!

    or you could do it dungeon style.


    9 gagillion mirrors, machines, cardio equipment, plyo balls, smoothie stands, Capt. Upper Body trainers, and TV's in the front. and a giant 5" thick blast door at the back of the room with an evil knight standing at the door. Once you pass the test, you are granted access to the blast door and enter into the Dungeon with all of the aforementioned stuff.
