    does anyone in nyc know a gym that has something like rope climbing or sledge hammer and tire? And olympic lifting plates would be great as well. I think these things are essential for becoming a good athlete but unfortunately, I don't know of such gyms and more unfortunately, I'm on a budget. Any help is appreciated

    a cross fit gym would have that kind of equipment wouldn't it? Can't be too hard to find one of those in NYC..

    Yes, but it's hard to find one with open gym hours, and then it's even harder to find one that works on a budget.

    OP- Really, almost any gym that's not a Planet Fitness or equivalnet should work. It's not what you have, but what you do with what you are given that counts.
