    Anyone a member of this gym? I heard it's a hardcore training facility, not a pretentious social scene, considering joining icon_biggrin.gif

    The benefits of working out at such a place are very good. In my case, I get to use an Army gym.

    No cruising that I've ever seen, just in, lift, shower, and out in under 50 minutes. ;)

    Looks just like my 24 hour fitness. And guessing by the soundtrack, the locker room must be a bath house. If that doesnt target upscale gays, I dont know what does.

    the owners of Steel Gym just purchased my gym in Miami - Idol's Gym. I hope they can upgrade the place.

    My gym is more fluff than gruff. It annoys me but I deal with it. Steel Gym looks awesome. Makes me want to go workout. I only wish that video was more of a trip through the gym, rather than quick flashes of the equipment.

    My gym has no gay guys. Because it's a neighborhood gym where simple straight Italian and Greek guys work out.

    ****groan****

    At least it's fun watching these guys pump their iron and you get a lot of training tips. Oh, nobody uses the shower and the steamroom in my gym. Nobody. It's the trademark of a neighborhood straight gym.

    It looks exactly like the community boxing gym up the street from me... low grade warehouse style.. 60 dollars a year membership.

    It doesn't look appealing to me. Looks too cruisy. To each their own. I'd be afraid of getting tea bagged while getting a spot. lol

    I used to go there. The locker room area is not at all like a bathhouse. And there were two or three excellent squat racks, a hack squat machine, and a Smith machine in the leg area, along with all the rest of the usual leg stuff. I'm guessing that's all still there.
