I train in my basement, where I have 3 Olympic bars that are between 45 - 55 lbs each, about 900 pounds of weights, and I can do dips and incline pushups on a thing my father got me (Anyone familiar with "The Rack"?).

I can train at the college gym too, which is free, but a lot of people use it, terrible music, none of my friends want to lift, as they always have to do schoolwork, etc. etc.

I train....at work!
There's a gym which all employees can use for £5 a month! I was previously paying £49 a month which is also considered cheap in London.

Pro:
open 24 hours
usually quiet
no travel involved

Cons:
bit small
no dip
no steam room/sauna


It's small but there's pretty much everything I need; I've only just started using it and now hoping to train more often. There's also a physiotherapist should one need it.

For a while I've been trianing at my school's gym over at CSU, but they only open certain hours of the day, my schedule has been getting a bit chaotic so I can no longer use theirs. I'm trying to see about a membership at 24 hours fitness, that way I can go there whenever I'm done with school or work. If anyone knows of any other 24 gyms in the Los Angeles area let me know.

Cheapest place with weights and a mirror.

Sometimes even without the mirror.

At home if I have to.

Right now at PSU student rec center.

I've never actually paid for a gym membership. I don't know if that's good or bad ;)

i go to a pretty small ghetto gym, but years of racking passcards to exspensive hotels has given me the freedom to choice any place i want to go to downtown and go use their gym/saunas etc . 8)

There's a small gym near my house that has this painted on the front window:

HELL'S GYM
FEEL THE BURN!!!

$25 A MONTH
NO CONTRACTS

I was thinking of joining for a month just because their name is cool :)

I am thinking about joining the local YMCA and working out there... There is another gym in town but it doesn't have a pool and I like to do alot of swimming.

Unfortionatly neither of them are 24 hours.
