If asked what my ideal gym would be, it would have the following: - Large, clean weight room with both machines (in a circuit for women who tend to use them most) and free weight section (with at least 2 squat racks, 4 benches, 2 inclines, and 2 decline benches, along with the standard curl station) - Dry towels at several points, and just as many places to drop your used ones off - multiple water fountains too - Hot towels in the locker room - Clean locker room (no rust on the lockers, no paint chipped off, this is not our high school gym) - Multiple, sectioned off (with full shower curtains) showering stations + changing stations so we can shower and then get dressed quietly (and without having to be uncomfortable). Remember, there are fathers who will like to bring their children, so they still would like somewhat of a family friendly environment, even in a locker room. Hell, children aside, I, along with many others who I know don't like seeing naked guys all the time. - An employee in the locker room to provide toiletrees (sp?) and doubles to prevent wanton acts (I'd cancel my membership the first day I saw sex (gay or straight) in the locker room, and it happens) - Cardio machines pointed towards televisions in one section, cardio machines pointed towards a large window with a nice view. A lot of ellipticals too, I'm tired of the lines for them. I'm sure I could think of others, but above all, a friendly staff is a big step. Oh, and keep the music low, I don't want to hear your staffers pick of "Do the Rocawear" when I'm benching - though background music does make it friendlier. What gym is it and where is it located? I'm a Maryland resident.
