no such things here in Victoria (a state of Australia) as far as i know. the gym's i have seen are more like fitness clubs and such. the gym i go to is mearly an extension of a swimming pool facility. they just added the gym to attract a larger crowd of fitness enthusiasts.

however im in the midst of creating my own. its comming along VERY VERY slowly, but im getting there. i just need a place to put everything, membership deals, staff, ect. i have some weights, barbells and dumbbells tho.

Out here in eastern mass, there are a good deal of nice gyms. The one I like the most is called the Powerfit Gym in Peabody, MA. I've been there before and its pretty hardcore. There's a lot of powerlifting equipment there, with special squat racks, buckets of chalk for everyone to use, and there are even a pair of 165's there. A lot of huge powerlifters go there and some bodybuilders, its a very serious place and I love it. Can't wat to join when hockey is over.

Obviously the MetroPlex in TX is notorious. Bev's PowerHouse in NY also is hard-core! Westside Barbell in Columbus, OH and Worlds Gym Worthington, OH good ones as well.

Westside Barbell Club can't be matched...

EDIT: Bodybuilders Inc. in Akron, Ohio is a good one, too.

Well it certainly isn't the gym I go to.

We don't have any decent gyms anywhere near me.
