Thanks once again. God, this is THE friendliest board on the internet!!!!! Personally, I don't know the man (Rev. John). Maybe he was being a s.o.b. maybe he just didn't practice his 'Henry Kissinger diplomacy' that day...The only reason I'm leaning toward that gym is because it is so close to where I live and if you remember the winters here can be a bitch! I'd rather not drive too far if I don't have to when the snows come. In the meantime I'm okay with working out at home. Like I said I have a lot of equipment it's just that if there were an accident at home I'm by myself , so for safety sake it's better to have someone else there( also for motivation, exercise tips about form, someone else to discuss bb-"vitamins(?)", etc.) Do you have any other suggestions as far as gyms go (westside)?
