listen, man, the whole point of what I said is: you don't need to go to a commercial gym to bulk up, or go there once you bulk up. The only plus to those places is safety, and I wouldn't trust my life to some of these folks. Before making a committment to one, I'd first scope the place out and look for a. equipment and b. are they safe. Keep in touch if you have any questions, I wrote a little ten-page guide for all my potential clients and whoever else wants to lift. Just ring me up if you want a copy emailed to you. It has about 25 exercises and all the important safety information you'll need.
I'm not knocking commercial gyms, but I don't dig the larger ones because you're less likely to get the personalized service you like and deserve. I'm sure some of these places are great, I just don't trust either a. safety/quality of spotters or b. equipment.
Screwing over bureaucratic organizations, one paper tiger at a time.
Trespassers will be shot and fed to the dogs.
