    can't even begin to explain how happy I am with my "new" gym. Probably the best workout I've had in a year. Since I moved, my diet has gone to shit and my lifting has gone to shit. I HATE the Powerhouse that I joined in Dearborn. It's crowded, it's full of blinged out, rude... well, I'll stop there. Anyway, I hate that place. And I don't like getting up early to work out. I was actually debating paying the ridiculous $50/mo for a Lifetime membership, just for the 24 hour benefit. But it's still a nice "pretty" gym and I just can't get down with that.

    And it turns out, my membership there is good for another 24hr Powerhouse. It's another 10 miles, but goddamn, it's like my old gym. It's spaced out, it's bare, it's a little bit cold, they were playing Pantera when I walked in.... The weights are old school, iron weights.... not the newfangled rubberized bullshit with pretty colors. Weights should one of two colors, Black or Rusty. Not sure I can really explain it or if anybody really understands it.... but it feels like a real gym.

    I probably lifted for 90 minutes and ran for 20 afterwards and felt great.

    I've been having problems getting motivated for months, and I think that is gone. :blue:

    See... I understand Maine's thinking. Him big, him strong, him act like asshole all time. He's like Master Blaster without the midget to do the thinking. But you? Well, you can just fuck right off, son.

    thats cool dude good for you. I had kinda of a similar situation where I when i moved out to go to college I would have to start working out at the gym on campus. Well after a week of that shit I was not motivated at all to get my ass in the gym. Dumb fucks taking all the weights, standing in the way acting like a douche bag, among other shit. Well turns out the gym I go to when I am home also has a gym right up the road from my school. I get such a better w/o plus its just all around a shit load better!

    :werd: that's exactly what it's like at the first place I was at. Nobody racks weights, you never know who's on a machine or who's done, fucking muscle milk bottles all over the place, guys posing all over, or just standing around talking. I know it seems petty, but having to ask 10 different people, each day "Are you done here?" gets annoying as hell. Guys doing their sets 4" from the dumbell rack, so I have to wait until they're done to even get at the dumbells that they are blocking, etc, etc

    and never leave the gym you found. I had to leave my barbell club due to work and commute issues and am at LA Fitness now. Its full of guidos and wifebeater wearing 130 pound "tough guys" takes you 10 minutes to find a matching set up dumbells. Apparently wearing a cutoff TapouT shirt with a gelled up blowout allows you to scream while buddy curling the 30lb preloaded barbell.

    Well... Dearborn is the largest population of Arabs outside of the Middle East. It's almost all Chaldeans, which in 15-30 year old form, is basically an Arabic guido. Sleeveless UnderArmor shirts and gold chains and sunglasses (yes, sunglasses) in the gym. I've never seen so many pairs of white sweatpants and Air Force Ones in my life

    Why don't you fucking meet me in the parking lot bitch and I'll show you a fucking workout.

    When I'm done wiping the asphalt with your face I'm going to set your fucking bike on fire and when it's burned enough I'm going to piss on it and put it out.

    I'd run your Mini over with my bike before you even got the chance, Redface.
