Why aren’t you a fan of Quest?
I’ve been to Quest a few times when I was in ATL for stuff. Gym is decent, no monolift though and all of the guys are USAPL/IPF strictly and there are several who will judge and make catty remarks if you are a multi ply lifter. Not my ballgame.[/quote]
Stronghold hit the nail on the head here. No mono and a little shy of the hardcore atmosphere I like. Not ideal for multiply either, as was already mentioned. To me, it feels like a gym that wants to be really badass, but just can’t pull it off because of an element inside that drives hardcore lifters away. Also alot of bashing against drug use. I don’t care whether people use or not and it usually doesn’t bother me when the drug-free zealots say users are cheaters or whatever, but at Quest, there’s just too much of it. I use and am not ashamed or hurt by what people may think of me, but the self-righteous vibe gets old.[/quote]
I had an issue with the guy there who told me that I was a cheating gear whore for using a 2 ply metal suit and then immediately proceeded to brag about how he got 200 lbs out of his super centurion. Far too much smug for my taste.
