I've been looking for them for several months, but the closest thing that I have found is a crossfit place that only open for a couple hours a day. I live near Carbondale, IL. The rec center at the university there is really restrictive and I got turned down about using the athletic facility (a few friends on the football team, but i understand the university not wanting random dudes using the good stuff).

I will be looking for private places now I guess, but its pretty sparse from what I've seen. If you know anyone or have any suggestions on places, I'm all ears; I would like nothing more than to train with some serious people and really start to see some good gains.

Quite a few guys from Illinois on the board. I'm not sure how far you are from Ryano. He might even know some guys in your area you could hook up with.

I'll check it out. I'm WAY south, but if nothing else, I might be able to schedule weekend sessions every now and then.

I looked on Powerlifting watch and will put up the gyms but I don't think that I see anything closer than a couple of hours drive...

Really rising up with everything. I especially liked those RDLs.

Thanks, I really like anything deadlift related. Not a big fan of bench, but its good for me, or so they say. Looking forward to breaking the 1000 pound total mark, hoping that happens this year!

Finals are over for the summer! School is pretty different this time around, I actually care about the subjects these days, and am not a complete ****head. Showing up to class and doing the assignments makes a huge difference in understanding the material. Who knew?

Next semester is going to be a lot of fun I think, doing Organization and Architecture of Computers, Design and Analysis of Algorithms, and Theory of Programming Languages. Gonna be busy, but this should be interesting and transfer over to my work on the software engineering side. After next semester, I'll get in state tuition, so there's an extra $18k a year I won't have to spend, and that will help a lot too.

As a teacher, I say, "DO YOUR HOMEWORK!"
I'm glad you are finding the excitement in education.
