Ok here’s the scenerio. I used to work out at the Marine Gym at Cherry Point but my ID expired so I can’t go there no more. THe only gym that is remotely close is a crappy place called Snap Gym. TO me it’s more like a women’s fitness center than a gym. My biggest complaint is that they don’t even have a water fountain. I’m really annoyed because they don’t have a squat cage or a place to do deadlifts with a straight bar or even bench. The only piece of equipment they have that is remotely close is a smith machine.
I tried doing bench in the machine but was frustrated that it doesn’t go far enough down to even touch my chest but an inch or two above it. They have a dumbell set but it only goes to 100lbs. I guess I’m afraid that the sheer unmanlieness of the gym and the lack of free weights will somehow make me weaker because I’ve never been in a gym that didn’t have a place to do core exercises like squats, deadlifts, military, or bench press. THe whole thing just annoys me. Is there any hope?
