    They Changed My Gym

    The Awesome gym I go to...where I can do powerlifting, use chalk, Deadlifts, DB's going to 200lbs etc.....they changed it and didn't let anyone know!!!

    I go in today, ALL the power racks are gone. ALL the Hammer Strength is gone. DB's only go to 80lbs now. And there is an assload of Cybex machines in there. All the old school equipment I liked is gone. They changed the name of the gym. WTF?!?!?

    I have a 2 year contract there (1 year left I think). What am I supposed to do? They have a posting about how the contracts are still binding to this new gym. Stupid Sellouts.
    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain...

    That is bullshit. You should try to get your money back. You payed for a good gym then they fucked you over! Sorry to hear about that.

    Take a quick glance at that and be glad that your gym didn't change into this.

    yeah, that sucks...real gyms just cannot make it anymore, they have to cater to the gerenal public and be fitness oriented so they do not intimidate the average joe. the only thing we have in my are is 24 Hour Fitness and Bally's.

    ...or have a 140 lb. guy telling you that you aren’t allowed to do deadlifts, because it intimidates the other members.

    I'll tell you what you do: fucking slam your goddamned weights around like a wild rabid animal, swearing and cursing in the name of the Lord while you are lifting, spill chalk dust everywhere, and wipe your balls sweat all over every cybex machine you can find. That'll learn 'em. Or, if not, it will be a lot of fun. Talk about unleashing the beast...

    my partner and I did this at a club, although we were not trying to get kicked out, we just lifted weights like we were in a real gym, yelling, grunting, tossing plates, and they basically ripped up our contracts and kicked us out.

    Mission accomplished I say. I would rather lift rusty ass weights in an abandoned parking lot.

    yeah thats pretty screwed up , my gym is ghey too, my gym has dumbbells that only go up to 100lbs lol and then they really dont have any freeweights, all they got is a smith machine, a bench,2 adjuastable benches, and a preacher curls stand. they have a suggestion box so i decided to write something lol it was somethin like-you need to get rid of all these pussy machines and get more freeweights and bumper plates. lol 3/4 of the gym is machines and cardio crap. then they have a corner for freeweights. its just stupid. and the P.T there are gay, they have all there ppl they train on machines

    EDIT** the next day i went in they bought some 35lb plates lol. but its still gay
