O.K., I’ve fuckin’ had it with commercial gyms! I made the mistake of signing up at a new gym in town while it was under construction. I thought a new environment would do me good. I paid for a six-month membership in advance. Much to my dismay, when I went there yesterday for my first workout it was filled with new, high-tech, cardio equipment, women with make-up, and men more interested in posing in front of the mirror than working! The topper–a sign in the rather small free weight area saying “no deadlifting!”.
That’s it, this among other experiences has convinced me that the empty corner in my garage is just begging for a home gym. However, as I’ve never considered this option before I have no idea which internet stores have the best prices and service, nor do I know what brands of cages with lat and low row I should consider.
So, for those of you who have experience in this area --HELP!!! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
