I live in South Denver (home of soccer moms, dudes in short-shorts, and 24 Hour Fitness), and am working out at a recreation center gym. They are slowly increasing the number of machines and reducing the number of free weights.
It’s alright sometimes, but last night (leg day) I watched a guy take up our only squat rack for a full hour. I asked him twice how many sets he had left, he’d say one but then start doing another exercise on the rack. There were also a dozen teenagers in street clothes just “hanging out” on 5-6 pieces of equipment.
I’d like to find a gym more suitable for bodybuilding, and was wondering if there was a good way to go about finding one. I am making good gains, and the inconsiderate nature of these people is killing my workouts.
All I need are old, dependable free weights and people who are there to train. Thanks!
