Golds Gym - Richmond VA


#1

For anyone in Richmond VA the new Willow Lawn Golds gym WILL NOT be powerlifting friendly.
Quote when asked about power cages "We won't have any power cages as we don't want to encourage powerlifting as it makes too much noise"
I asked how that could be as Golds has a proud history of Powerlifting and they said they weren't going for that kind of crowd. WTF?!?!?!?!

That sucks man, but you know what's even worse? When I goto my local Bally's all (3) Power Racks are taken up by people using them to rest their barbell curl weight =D. The best "idea" about that gym is the fact that they have olympic weights...which no one uses because they can't convert kilograms =D.
