What gym do you go to?

What gym does everyone go to? I'm making the switch from home gym to actual gym and was wondering what gyms people recommend, but even if your gym's not a chain, I thought it would be interesting to see what gyms people go to. If your place is not a chain but you don't want to say the name just put "local independent gym" or something like that.

There's a SCNY pretty close to where I work, so I'm probably going to end up going there as long as they have a squat rack and allow deadlifting. However, there's also a Gold's Gym and a couple of other places that are doable for me.

EDIT: Sorry if my posts aren't making 100% sense...it's the pain killers talking.

I do most of my lifting in a local boxing gym and do carido type work at my Universities gym.

I'm lifting at my university gym. Since I'm paying for it, might as well. Before this, I used to work out at a local gym in Boston. If there wasn't anything else available, I'd use Gold's Gym.

Yeah, I'm seriously considering Gold's. The thing is that SCNY would probably be more convenient because it's right next to my office; but, I'm afraid that I'm going to be paying for a bunch of shit there that I'm never going to use.

i lift at the new york health and racquet club.

i get a big discount from work, otherwise i wouldn't pay their expensive fees.

it's nice, clean and has a lot of features that NYSC doesn't have. like a yacht.

there is a liefestyle fitness near me - basically the god of gyms: 4 full basketball courts, 100 tread mills, a climing wall, indooor and outdoor pools with slides, a whole bunch of machines, and a very good weight room -3 squat racks, a baby sitting room that my son loves. 24/7. 114 bucks a month, family membership, which is 20 bucks more than I was paying for a Y back in ny.

I joined this mostly for my family, but it is great knowing that I can go to the weight room and never wait, or go at strange hours. also, leaving my son in the playroom while I work is great.

aside from that, a small boxing gym near my house. it is worth the extra bit to have a more old school gym available, about 5 minutes away. I basically think closer is better, as long as it has a squat rack.

I lift at the YMCA.

They've got everything I need to workout, programs for my kids and I feel good because the money goes to support programs that help people in the community.

Plus - I'm the Board Chair of one of the local Y branches

I usually exercise where I'm living. If I couldn't do that I'd look for a local club instead of a dedicated gym. In the US, I've tried the Sports Clubs (NY, Boston, Philly), the Sports Club LA, and 24 hour Fitness, and have always found it annoying that the provenance of the other members was suspect.

My job is at the university gym so I have a free membership there. I want to sign up to a kickboxing gym but don't have the funds for it.

I am a member of my local YMCA but I joined primarily so I could take my daughter to swimming lessons there. I typically work out with freeweights and my treadmill in the basement.
