    There has been extensive renovations in my gym and guess what has happened to the gang shower? It is replaced by individual cubicles with doors. Looks like these days, privacy is the way of life even here in Australia.

    I wonder if this is the new global trend.

    It is interesting that there is no definite trend that I can see.
    In Ballys (a Nationwide chain) some gyms hang gang showers, some have stalls but with no doors. Other gym chains here have both.

    The YMCA I use is a completely new building and the showers are gang style. I prefer being in an open shower vs an individual shower. The individual ones aredark, claustrophobic for me and the curtains/doors and tiles are more likely to be smelly or mildewed.

    The gang showers are well lite and sparkling clean.
