The gym I train at now, I train there because
A) They have platforms and bumper plates and chalk
B) I have a friend who trains there who has an eleiko bar that we keep in the back room and only take out when we're using it (this is probably more important)
The bar is one of the few things I'm really picky about. Weight is weight, so long as the plates are designed to bounce, and the platform just needs to be solid and not too slippery, but I can't lift on a shitty bar. I'll do pulls and squats but nothing where I have to turn over and catch the weight.
