    he was showing us all the cardio equipment and the stair steppers that had their own 5" tv's in them with a headphone jack and Cd playa.

    all the cardio stuff and the cable machines are upstairs. we went downstairs to the locker rooms and the free weights + hammer strength type stuff and i asked him to show me to the squat racks.

    he showed me their 1 smith machine, 1 rack, 1 cage. I said "where do people do deadlifts?"

    he says "uh.... over there or over here or wherever... i dont usually get people asking me about squat racks and deadlifts. are you a powerlifter?"

    i said "DO I LOOK LIKE A BIG FAT DONUT EATER TO YOU?!!?!!" and then i hit a double bicep pose and a rear lat spread and flexed my calf at him.

    thomor and tryfuhl: this was Washington Sports Clubs in Sterling town center.

    I tried out Gold's in sterling last friday and I'm going to join there instead. It's only $3 more per month and it has 30,000 sq ft instead of like, 5,000.

    You should've asked him where the puke buckets were.

    How much is it a month? I might consider joining the golds down on my end of rt7, well sorta rt7 its quicker to get to then fitness first and its less traffic to go through cause I don't have to go through rush hour traffic on 7.

    my last gym had a puke garbage can and they let you use chalk.

    this new gold's has a sign on the wall that says chalk is not allowed anymore, although every "trainer" i ask says "chalk? what's chalk?"

    thomorz - $43 a month
