There are a few problems with this gym that need addressed before it can be considered a 3 or 4 star gym overall.

The first (and most pressing) problem is there is only 1 proper power rack, which is usually being occupied by a guy shrugging 600lbs for 30 minutes (sarcasm...kind of). So if you're looking to squat heavy with safety pins in case you fail a rep, you better hope the power rack is open. They had one other option for squatting with safety pins, but it was kind of awkward to use.

The second problem is it's hard to bench safely without a spotter because....there's only one power rack. Their benches do not have safety bars, so you have to ask for a spotter every time, which gets annoying to you and the random guy you're asking for a spot.

No complaints about the dumbbells or any of the machines, they do the job just fine.

The culture there was a bit off-putting. I lost count of the number of times I saw guys either not put their plates back, or put them back in a place that they shouldn't be. I'd frequently hear several DYELs making fun of people on the treadmills because "hurr durr the absence of the EPOC effect with cardio means they shouldn't even be doing cardio." Seriously?! And these were guys who couldn't even pull 2 plates without serious lumbar flexion.

Forewarning if you play basketball there: one of the goals is approximately 2 inches lower than the other, and one of the rims is slightly off-center.

With all this being said, if you're just interested in cardio, using machines, and maybe some dumbbells thrown in there, this will be a fine gym for you. They have more machines than I've ever seen in a gym, so if that's what you're into, have at it.

Nice place to get some exercise! Picked up a pickleball paddle set and went and played at their indoor facility. Staff was very nice.

Love the group workouts. Would like to see the painted
inside a more cheerful color than brown. More group exercise class times would be nice. Some folks work mornings/ seconds.
