sport1983 saidPutting huge pictures of yourself on the wall is Narcissistic, as long as you're not Madonna or Grace Jones. I don't care too much whether the entrance looks like a Spa or not, I have the impression often people don't seem to believe a decent gym where you can properly work out can go hand in hand with an up-scale Spa-like environment and all facilities you need to disconnect and relax... I'm from Europe and hugely disappointed with what US gyms have to offer here. Maybe Madonna saves the industry. Let's just hope she doesn't inspire Lady G
Yes, I agree... Giant Madonna photos in a Madonna gym is not narcissistic. It's called smart business... her photos sell $$$$$$$. I like pretty spa-like entrances and lobbies, as long as there are dumbbells and barbells and threadmills and ellipticals, who gives a shit whether the entry looks like Barbie's Dreamhouse.
About Lady G: Could you imagine a Gaga Gym! Meat drapes, pointy chairs, and the employees would be forced to walk in Alexander McQueen heels all day!
