I don’t know if you live in Montreal now, but if you don’t you’ll be glad to hear that for 15$ a semester, you get a weight room membership. The power rack and lifting platform are pretty much always available in the mornings now that I don’t go there anymore ;).
Also, there’s a big ol’ bucket that’s always full of chalk, which is nice. All that is tucked away in the back far from the benches, dumbbell racks and cardio section, so even when it starts to get crowded, that part tends to be pretty isolated. Now that I’m describing it, even if you already live in Montreal, that may be better (especially in price, given that your tuition subsidizes it whether you go or not) than your current membership.
I wish I could still go there.
Best of luck, have fun and if you’re looking for a party, head on down to the basement of the Bronfman building on thursdays around happy hour time. Make some friends in there and you’ll never be bored (or wake up lonely).
