Thanks Guys!!!!  I used to go to the Johnny Lats in Staten Island and that gym was rated the best on the east coast til they closed it down :(.  Didnt know there was one on 17th street.  I'll check out Golds and 24 hour fitness also since I live in Harlem....

I train at LA Fitness.  I hate it, but it's the only game in town where I live.  I can workout anywhere in the country except they charge more money to workout in NY state.  WTF is that about?

I just joined Chelsea Piers, and the equipment there is amazing. Tons of weights, hammer strength I haven't seen in years, even on olympic platform. Check it out.

I still belong to Steel however in case I want a workout late at night.

Get on Metro North towards New Haven. Cost you about 20 bucks. get off in New Haven and come into Powerhouse Gym. Top 5 in the world for BBing.

That and Bev's are probably the best AROUND the city.

This is an old as fuck threadóSTEEL closed, no more Gold's in the city.
Honestly, I go to Equinox and just accept sticking out like a sore thumb .

Gold's turned into Perscriptives I think and then maybe shut down. There used to be the 19th Street Gym which was awesome. I met Bev Francis there years ago and she was training quads. Insane.

If you get can to Jersey go to Strong and Shapely, see Bob.

Good Luck.
