So I went to see the Habs vs. Sabres in Buffalo on February 17th.
Friday night, we hit up the town and noticed not much going on so we went back to the hotel and did a shoulder workout @ the gym.
Saturday, I put the GPS address for Buffalo Gold’s Gym into my unit only to be led to a gym that closed down. While driving around aimlessly as my friend searched in my GPS for a gym, we hit upon planet fitness in WEST SENECA, NY.
Of course we decided to check it out. Here’s me in front of it.
Once inside, we were greeted with courtesy by the receptionist. I noticed a great sign.
“Bodybuilding tanktops”. Hahahha.
I estimated that about 75% of the gym was treadmills and ellipticals.
There was another great sign near the entrance, instructing us to leave our egos at the door:
That’s great because, well, it’s hard to show your ego to anyone on an elliptical trainer.
Below the sign marked “judgment free zone” was a 10-machine 30-minute circuit managed by a traffic light. Light goes green, you go to machine. Light goes red, you stopped.
Hahahah, what an epic concept. Overall an OK gym, and the denizens were quite funny. Saw a 300 pound guy doing bicep curls, several grannies “power walking” the treadmills, zero power racks on site but I don’t think others noticed.
So I went in and did benches, deadlifts, pull-ups, dips, and left. I took a tootsie roll (seriously they’re in a bowl at the front desk) and a couple of yellow and purple pens on the way out for posterity. I benched 235 on a purple rack.
Sunday we drove to Gold’s Gym in Rochester.
