Good Gym in New Orleans?

Anyone know of any good gyms in New Orleans, possibly near uptown or French Quarter?


I don’t know of any.

There used to be a Gold’s Gym, but that closed years ago. To my knowledge, the closest gym that’s PLing friendly is in BR. All the others SUCK (St. Charles, etc), they either have no squat racks or appeal to people who wanna workout and have a beer afterwards. I’m not kidding.

My advice (unless someone knows of a secret gym lol) is to buy your own rack if you have the room.

I think the UPA state chair lives in Slidell which is not too far from NO. Eric Downey, http://www.myspace.com/edowney

I think Jesse Kellum also trains somewhere in those parts.
