    Sounds fairly cheap. Do they have barbells and a squat rack?

    Hopelessly Hopeful: "I don't think so. What's a squat rack?"

    £17 is too expensive and fitspace isn't a gym.
    It has a pretty good free weights area, two racks and a bench yes. It may look like a health club but the reason it's so cheap is that it doesn't have any of the bells and whistles on that regular health clubs do. There's nothing wrong with it.

    £17 is dirt cheap, my proper gym costs me £20.

    I want a fitspace.

    Sounds like a good enough no-frills gym. It's cheaper than the ******* hole-in-the-wall basement gym FFS.

    The reason most gyms are so expencive is because their just healthclubs with **** loads of useless extras to try wow people into thinking its a good deal! My council gym is 21.50/month, 2 racks and a well stocked out free weight area. Whats better is 'cause its council theres never anyone using the free weights so I always have it to myself.

    Get on plane - fly to Birmingham International Airport - get in taxi - ask him to take you to "The Coliseum in Aston" - enter gym - find me in squat racks, deadlifting or ******* around with strongman stuff with the troops.
    Not got a 'sqaring off place' as such, I find such things to full of American macho hero internet ******** as and where is fine.

    Indeed, but I am curious as to why you have said this after apparently coming to 'kick my ass' and me advising that the American BS smack talk is not impressive.

    You gonna do it or not bub? as I mentioned as and where is good enough for me, or is this where you fall into the

    Internet Gangsta-
    All threats made by Internet Gangstas should be chalked up to complete and total BS, seeing as the user :

    A.) can't run his mouth in person, and,
    B.) Is a mid-upper class whiteboy with something to prove.
    Hmm I do wonder
