Anyone know of a gym in the Miami- Fort Lauderdale area that has "open" showers (communal/gang style) instead of private ones?

No, not a gang shower for more than 1. My gym, which is 95% gay and gay-owned, has stall showers with opaque doors. They're very snug inside and I don't like them, cramped & claustrophobic, and a few times I thought I smelled urine.
Instead I use a large open room with 1 shower head they also have there, intended for the handicapped. Well, I'm handicapped, though not in a wheelchair, just have a cane, and I do use its grab bars for when I wash my legs and feet. It's partly open to view from the locker room, but I don't mind, having often just come out of the steam room naked anyway. I come from an older generation that isn't hung up on being naked in front of other men.
intentsmen suggested a bathhouse instead of a conventional gym, and if you're gonna be in the Fort Lauderdale area for long you might consider The Clubs - Fort Lauderdale (many just shorten it to Club Lauderdale). They actually have a large and modern gym there, plus I think the gang shower you want.
I've also seen guys working out in just jocks there, but of course with towels on the equipment, unlike the promo pic above.

This. Although I might not have said it as ...erm, non-tactfully?
I went to a particular bath years ago with some friends on a lark just to see what all the hubbub was about; and unlike the promo pics, showing young, ripped guys, it was mostly guys old as, and older than my dad.
In horrific shape.
Not a good visual for retention...
I have to wonder if this is the norm?
