    Hey guys! I'm a pretty fit guy who's looking to leave LA Fitness. Like many of those who train hard, I'm motivated by working out around folks who take fitness seriously. Based on my experience, the chain gyms offer low rate memberships that attract all walks of life & most of the trainers don't look like they've lifted anything heavier than 50lbs but they are like vultures who prey on gym novices for expensive training packages.

    I hope there are some places that offer diverse classes, modern (functioning) equipment, and trainers whose bodies speak volumes about their fitness RESIZED TEXT GOES HERECOLORED TEXT GOES HERECOLORED TEXT GOES HEREdedication.

    If anyone can make a recommendation, I'd greatly appreciate it!

    I know what you mean. When I am not training Krav Maga I lift at Ansley Mall. If you workout there maybe we can train together sometime. I used to be into powerlifting and love the intensity even though I do not lift as heavy anymore.

    I've used Ansley as a last resort. The equipment is really old and the locker room smells horrible, which is too bad because it's really convenient to home. Thanks for the invite buddy :-)

    I have a conference coming up in April in the ATL...in downtown. It would be awesome to know where I can go.

    I think the conference is at the Hyatt Regency in downtown...so any good gym recommendations close to there would be quite appreciated.

    Thanks

    http://www.healthclubs.com/

    I use the above web site because it provides information about the available health clubs within a given address or city that was input. These clubs are members of the IHRSA only, which is a international association of health, racquet, and sports clubs.

    It contains the address, phone number, web site link, and available services and amenities at the member health clubs.

    When I travel, I check out the site so I can find one near my hotel. They also offer a "Passport" program where you can get a discounted daily rate if you're club is a member.

    More of a personal fitness spot than just a walk-in gym, but...

    Good trainers and equipment there, across the tracks from Atlantic Station.

    Have you tried the CrossFit-style places? I know they're falling into over-commercialized territory, but the smaller gyms seem to be thriving locally.

    Checked out Body Flex (used to be a Gold's Gym) on Peachtree St in Downtown.

    Gym is ok...has everything you need.

    There was hardly anyone in there though.

    People do work out here in ATL, right?!?!?!?icon_biggrin.gif
