Well, I am interested in starting an SS programme, I have been training for a while but would like to witness some more serious gains, both in terms of mass and strength. I currently work at a hotel and thus get use of the gym for free, which is great. However the actual facilities are not ideal for someone who wants to do said programme. There is no squat rack, for example, and thus most people there seem to do their squats using the smith machine
Obviously, I could use, and have been using, a BB and load it up, however the times in which I frequent the gym does not often provide me with an opportunity to have a spotter, just in case; though it is will not be an issue earlier on in my lifting career it will become more concerning as I improve and thus increase the weights being lifted. So, members of the Fitness section, I am reaching out to you to [hopefully] provide me with some insight as to what I can do regarding this situation.
And if anyone is from the South Manchester area please could you shed some light on some independent, well priced, gyms in the area. The university gyms don't have good reviews in terms of equipment for any serious lifting.

That's not a gym, a gym has to have a squat rack. Otherwise, it's a health club. Go to a gym, not a health club. .
