Thirty bucks a month for membership. Thirty minutes to work out. Three times a week. The notion was to get as many lemmings through the door as quickly as possible. I don't know if that's what Jones had in mind, but for a while it certainly worked from a marketing standpoint.
Gordon LaVelle is more about Dorian Yates style training then Arthur Jones. In fact, I don't recall him mention Arthur much at all, if he mentioned him once.
