It's OK. They have db's up to 100, a couple benches and some machines. Nothing heavy this week, but better than the hotel, especially for free (because I belong to a "Y" back home and they have reciprocity).
I go to WoW, and they want $10 a day. I say that's kind of steep, do they have a weekly rate? No. What's it cost per month? $10. OH! I just get a monthly, then (duh). Well, you gotta sign up for the whole year....
I say, usually places let me just come in for the week, or charge $5 per day. I tell them I travel all over and rarely is it ever more than 20-30 for the week. No go. They say it's $10 or nothing.
I say, do you know why you have daily rates in the first place? They have no idea what I'm talking about. It's so locals don't just buy guest prices instead of memberships. Usually out-of-staters get cut a deal. Many gyms have told me this.
These are late teens early 20's guy/girl. They're like deer in the headlight and give me the Spinal Tap "But we charge 10 dollars and it gets busy in here". I say, "Cool story, bro.. thanks". Out. Drive another mile or so to "Y" and I'm in for free.
Fuck it. At some point it's not about the money, it's the principle of the thing. In some respect, it is about the money. I travel a lot and the gym fees add up. Hell, I belong to 3 at home.
I was in Knoxville last week and they wanted $15 per day. I managed to convince them to give me the $5 "guest trainer" rate. The staff balked but the manager was like "Yeah, no problem! Thanks for choosing us". I can deal with that.
