First thing, I would not go tearing the place up and cause a scene. This will only give fuel to their fire of not wanting real weightlifters in the place.

Second thing, Your not really surprised by their attitude are you? I think of a lot of these so called chain mega gyms as nothing more than a video game version of a real gym. You know where the real gym is at. It's the fully functioning strongman place. PF is nothing more than a brick facade of a place that looks like a gym. Hell it probably doesn't even smell like a real gym.

While I'm not one of those guys that needs to throw dumbells and plates around, I find it laughable that a "GYM" has sensors that detect if you put something down to hard. That a gym has unwritten limits on just how big a member can be. Thats just absurd.

I agree with you about why this pisses you off. In a way PF is doing you a favor. Your not the only person who has had this type of experience with places like this, and your not going to be the last. Whats the favor their doing you? Real gyms are starting to make a comeback. The real gyms are not overcrowded with little scared bambi's. You have the right kind of people lifting there.

You could always do this as well,

^^^ Thats what im thinking.... how much money would it cost to open up a real gym?
youcould put up a 40x60 steel frame building, insulated and all for about $35000, and then equip it. the only real problem would be getting members.... i would think you could do something like this for around 50-70 thousand... hummmmmmm, new retirement plan????

Ive read on Forbes Magazine that opening up a Curves is the best income to start up/overhead ratio for a basic business.

If you guys don't have them around you Curves is a female only gym.

Sound the alarm, I have bashed that place so much online on other forums, I just can't do it anymore. Needless to say I hate this place with a passion.

I wish my video was closer then this but I already got lunked 2 other time in new hamsphire, and didn't feel like suspending my friends membership. That one isn't so bad since they at least let you deadlift in the rack, or let you take their gay yoga mats and put it under the weights. Thats better then nothing I suppose.
