I lift at Quads and there is a very small group of powerlifters (2-3, maybe theres more but I've never seen them) that lift in the afternoon, 4-5 pm, you could see if they'd help you. I've never lifted there early on week days, but I doubt your going to find a large group to lift with, the majority of the people I've seen work out there are recreational lifters at best, aside from a few bigger guys. The benefit to Quads is access to literally any piece of equipment you need (yoke bar, texas powerbars, elitefts competition bench, swiss bar, GHR, reverse hyper, heavy dumbbells etc). The deadlift platform isn't the best but you can use chalk and grunt and your not going to get kicked out. I pay $50 a month (had to pay 6 months up front), but I was also a "student" at the time, talk to Dave at the front desk, hes a great guy and might be able to help you out.
