Nominated for: BEST Crossfit
“The ideal gym would be located close to home or work, well equipped, clean and manned by knowledgeable and helpful staff. Our ideal gym would also not be overly crowded yet available to friends and family that we'd like to workout with. An ideal gym would be supportive of hard-core fitness a la Crossfit. As long as we're dreaming it might also play only the music we want to hear. Many of us are blessed with gyms we love dearly. If that's your situation, great! For the rest of us our gyms are very different. Often the drive to the gym is 20-30 minutes coming and going, the music is worse than annoying, the staff are less than worthless, the place is packed with selector-ized equipment for which we've no use and the few pieces of equipment that you want to use and in near constant use. Commute, parking, filth, rust, crowding, music, staff and members each can make what for us is an essential activity difficult or impossible. The “Spa” (big tip-off) in our neighborhood has over the years banned Olympic Lifting, all jumping, plyometrics, walking lunges and believe it or not- have as a matter of policy fostered an antagonistic attitude to serious training. No grunting, sweating, yelling or dropping weights allowed. Our experience in not unique.
