just for fun, finish the sentence
if I owned a gym...
guys that never touched free weights heavier than a 20lbs dbell would be banned.
guys that hit the same machine day after day with a lousy 45lbs plate loaded on it would be ousted.
guys that look like the average unweight trained Joe who acts as training coach to his buds would be flogged at the squat rack.

Groups of more than 3 people would be banned from using the bench bar...
It would have a million squat racks, see my journal for relevance...

the 150lb guy that puts the 10's on the bar in the squat rack..does some curls...then walks around on the phone, would get a severe beating
If I owned a gym, you would be removed if you didn't rack your weights from your barbells/ machines. I'm fairly ocd about that stuff and it pisses me off to find all of the damn 45 plates on the leg press after Joe Tard finished quarter pressing. Morons.
I would ban everyone that doesn't wash their hands before returning to the floor after taking a piss
I would ban everyone that doesn't unrack their weights
I would ban everyone that curls in the squat rack
Hopefully after that it would be only me left. Then I'd invite chicks to train there.

i knew you were a beast but not that kinda of a beast that eats grown men and children.. lilmase
I would make it the most annoying commercial gym ever, then make another gym for myself while raking in the dough.
id make the floors out of some kind of easily breakable material (except for where the power rack is) and charge triple the cost of what it would take to fix it when someone throws the weight on the ground
id equip it with an adequate amount of DBs, BB racks, power racks, squat racks, etc, then i'd have a whole outdoor conditioning section with equipment like tires, sandbags, makiwaras and whatnot. id also make a restaurant attached with affordable non-overpriced meals geared toward lifters

I'd keep it relatively small, a small warehouse type place geared towards lifting. I'd have strict policies about talking while sitting at a machine, bull****ting around, and not working. Chalk would be FURNISHED. I'd have quality cardio equipment, but in another place, away from the weights. There'd be at least 2 squat racks, 4 quality benches, an abundance of dumbbells, bands, chains. I'd go with soclydeza's idea of an outside area for tires, prowlers, sandbags and such. It would be geared towards lifters, but very suitable for cardio bunnies, they're easy money. Music would be anything that either pisses you off, encourages you, or just scares the crap out of you. Walls would be plastered with posters of cut up bodybuilding heros, powerlifting beasts, and strongman monsters. It'd be a no BS type place with a family type attitude. I'd like to be financially in a position where I could keep dues low, and if someone needs help paying dues, I could say "don't worry about it bro, I got you this month." Or just tell them to come in and help clean up one day, rack weights before closing, or something like that to pay for dues. I wouldn't be banning people left and right, but I'd be watching, if the weights didn't get racked, I'd ask them politely at first to rack em, then proceed to throw them out if they don't comply. I'd also have some heavy bags, atlas stones and such. In my opinion, it'd be a badass place.

I want to get a keg, where the heck can I get a keg...for lifting that is.
EDIT: Nevermind...local liquor stores, just gotta pay the $10 fee, nice!

...I'd put the cardio equipment next to the squat racks. That way, the only fagg0ts who get to enjoy milf eye candy are those man enough to actually deserve it

as long as theyre not interfering with my workout more power to em...hell those small guys doing ridiculous things make me feel better about myself and getting a good ego boost while working out is a great thing it can dictate your whole workout... keep the small guys
actually no... instead of having those 24hour fitness guys i would hire a few hooters girls to walk around with water and be paid to make nice to all the guys there again for the test boost. maybe pick a few fitness types to spot the guys working out... 2 women if youre a heavy lifter... theird be a tip jar for each women on the counter on the way out so they have incentive to flirt and help out

There are places to meet women. For me the gym 'aint it. Fitness girls are great to look at, but if I wanted someone with an eating disorder and early abuse issues, I'd look at a strip club. Just saying...
(Oh, in other words, the fitness girls reject me so who needs 'em!)

aech time members reached a goal of theirs, whatever it be, new PR, wieght loss, contest win, etc, they'd get incentives like reduced fees for the month, or free protein drinks for the week.
that would create excitement about training towards goals, and also create patron loyalty.
There'd be an all ladies cardio section. I'd have chest level cameras hooked up to the treadmills and butt-level cameras on the bikes. Also, camera's in the aerobics/yoga rooms. All hooked up to big screens in the weight room... and it'd be clothing optional. For the ladies I mean. I don't wanna see some hairy powerlifter doing squats naked... oh, jeeze... there goes lunch...
Oh, and tiny doors to the ladies section to keep the big girls out. Nothing against them, I love a tubbaluva. Just don't really want to look at that so much. You may think, "What woman would go to this gym?" I answer you, the kind of women you want to meet at the gym. That's friggin' who.
Oh, also, ladies get cheap as hell rates. So the ladies there are not only slutty but cheap as well. Jackpot, guys.
