So I've been at Quincy Athletic Club (QAC) for a few months now and I have to say, it's great for the price. I signed up while they were having a summer special. I think it was around $50-$70 to sign up, but now it's only $10/month (I think it's usually $20), and an annual $10 fee. They have a basketball court you can use for an extra $10/month, but they have classes in there most the day so I didn't bother paying to use it once/week.
This being said, $130/yr is dirt cheap for any gym. QAC is a pretty basic gym, not huge, not tiny. The thing that I've been most impressed with is that it never seems crowed (if you've ever been to Super Fitness in Quincy you know what I'm talking about). There are plenty of ellipticals, treadmills, and a few bikes. My favorite part though is the weights section. They have the machines separate from the free weights so people serious about weightlifting don't have to feel like they're going to be scorned for trying (damn Planet Fitness!). Although they have 2 smith machines, which I'm pretty sure the government mandates every gym has, why the F*** else would you have one...they do have 2 power cages and 2 squat racks. They also have 4 bench presses, 2 more inclined. They also have a ton of dumbbells.
The only thing I don't like about the place is the pull down and cable machines have cheap feeling attachments, and not a lot of variety among them. If you like doing many different lat pull down and row variations, this isn't your place.
Overall it's a great gym for the price, nothing flashy or in mint condition, but they don't discourage lifting things up and putting them down...It's a friendly environment, but not Planet Fitnessy, and you won't have 50 guys staring at you because you're not doing a traditional dead lift (Super Fitness aka the dungeon). I'd strongly recommend this place. I'd give it a B . Not the kind of place I'd want to be forever, but for the price it's worth sticking to for a few years.
