Anyone In Raleigh, NC?


#1

I need to find a good gym. Sale me on your gym or one you may have visited.


#2

I guess not.

I just moved to Raleigh a little over a month ago. The subdivision I live in provides a gym for free, the Hedingham Athletic Club. I'm not sure how much it is for those who don't live in the neighborhood. It's nothing spectacular (especially after having a kickass homegym in my buddy's garage back in Michigan), but there are some good good lifters there who are there for one reason: to get jacked. Other than that, haven't really went out looking for another place yet as money's still an issue. What part of Raleigh u in, anyways?

I live between ncsu and wade ave. I have looked around at a few places this week. I checked out the central y, Peak fitness, Gold's, and planet fitness. I want to checkout an independent called powerhouse downtown and also beyond fitness.

Planet Fitness didn't allow deadlifts or oly lifts and had weight limits, peak just left a bad taste in my mouth, and the y has a lot of construction going on that may be an issue. Gold's was nice, but a bit of a drive. I got a couple day passes to everywhere but planet. I plan on trying them out to get a feel. I had hoped someone might have some personal experiences.

I'm not in Raleigh, but not too far away in Salisbury, NC. We actually have a decent YMCA, plenty of free iron and racks. So you might want to check into the Raleigh Y.

Did you bother to read my post?

On the rag?

I didn't realize there is almost a two hour time delay. Sorry.


#9

It's funny... I could tell that you were an ass, when I read your first post.


#10

It's no big deal, I apologize if I sounded like I was on the rag.

It's that time of the month again for me.

Bump-up, For anyone in Raleigh with any gymnasium recommendations for xan.
