so im quite happy with the gym im at at the moment i have access to a power rack, some logs, a trap bar and all the other basics. there is another "proper" weight lifting gym close by that has some pretty stellar stuff but fuck the attitude of the place is like the gym in oz. its got a viking press, 4 squat racks rather than 1, chains and tons of strongman equipment. however the place has the worst attitude ever, its full of wannabe gangsters and "cage fighters". i wore a gracie barra competition t shirt i had won to this place and i got asked about 5 times within an hour if "i thought i was tough" or if i wanted a fight. the age difference between the two gyms is pretty obvious as well, the bad attitude gym is lots of young guys in there 20s driving around in sports cars whilst the gym where i train is lots of friendly blue collar guys. ive encountered similar sorts of things with martial arts clubs, i travel with work so i sometimes try a local martial arts club. you walk in and you get welcomed straight away to a friendly atmosphere or your straight in as fodder and get the shit kicked out of you and used as training practice for some guy who is trying to go pro. i know some of you will say shit like "man up" or whatever but have any of you encountered gyms with straight up bad atmospheres?
