The Bloomington gym is great for weight lifters. There are probably eight barbell benches, and another eight plain benches. Two cable machines, several different leg presses, and enough equipment that I rarely have to wait (for long). They have a good sized pool, two hot tubs, a sauna and steam room.
Richfield is maybe half the size of Bloomington. There are three barbell benches, one cable machine, and lots of weighting. And there is no pool They filled it in and turned the room into a studio. They only nice thing about the Richfield Bally is that it is only a mile from our house.
St. Louis park is a tad bit bigger than Richfield, but it also has a pool. They have more equipment, but it's packed into the space REALLY tight. And it's almost ten miles away.
The only thing keeping me at Ballys is the incredibly low rate I pay. The renewal letter I just got ask for $230.90. That's ANNUAL. I'm going to check out other nearby gyms, but I don't think any of them are going to be beat that price.
Changing gyms is , whether just to a new location or a new company. I'm sure I'll adjust. Now I just need to call my some-times-trainer and find out where he's moving to.
