    Moving to Philly in the summer

    Hey all I'm from Atlanta, GA and attend school in Auburn, AL. But this summer I will be living in Philadelphia, PA with my girlfriend. Actually just outside of Philly in Aldan. If anyone is familiar with the area and could point me to a good gym to workout at or even wants a workout partner then let me know!

    ugh....whatever you do, stay away from southstreet area. Nasty nasty nasty nasty place. Be glad you're not living directly in the city. Philly really is a nasty place

    Dont become a Philly sports fan or youll be forced to boo santa clause, cheer opponents injuries, and piss in the sink at the stadium..... and your team will never make it to the Superbowl

    Philly gyms and etc.

    If you're in the town I think you're in, you're more than 10 minutes from Downtown. I think there is a Bally's in Darby or something like that. Downtown there are a lot of gyms, like any city. I use Rittenhouse Square fitness center in center city (www.ritfit.com) , its small but has verything I need.

    One note of caution, 12th street gym downtown is in the "gayborhood", so only join if you are comfortable with that environment.

    Oh, and South street ain't that bad everywhere, its where a few bars are and a lot of shopping. You just have to be prepared for it. Besides, everyone heads to the Jersey shore during summer anyways.

    they took down this real big stadium there a while ago and built a parking lot.

    Its becoming almost cliche for things people love to be turned into parking lots

    That stadium was bad. I would never want to play on that field. Yeah there is some history in it but thats true with everything.

    The last bit of history is Ronde Barber picking off McNabb to take the Bucs to the Superbowl, MUAHAHAHAHAHA. Forever the last memorable play at the Vet. That stadium was a hell hole and considering the same PEOPLE will be going to the Linc, it wont be long till that stadium has rats and smells like piss also.

    Haha. I think of the old Foxborough stadium and remember the trough you had to piss in. When you went to a winter game it made me think of an ice luge (sp?). Gillete stadium is much better. I havent seen a game in there yet but I did see Metallice, Limp, LP, and others last summer. Nice place.

    I went to foxborough a couple times, I heard Gilette was really nice but I havent been at all, since I dont live up there anymore. Pro Player down here is pretty nice, but the away team always has just as many fans as the home team lol.
