    Are you serious??!! This gym is so not hardcore it is not even funny! Especially since they replaced all their equipment with that new high-tech bullshit. Whats it called? Like Neo-gym or something really stupid. Again, an example of the "real" hardcore gym dying out. Now if this would have been posted a year earlier, I could maybe see it, but now!! No way in hell. It is more a cruising joint for the queers, just like almost every other damned gym it seems here in Ft Lauderdale. i've had so many women clients comlain about all the gay guys in the gyms such as LA Fitness ro Golds of Ft Lauderdale and we won't even touch The Firm. I've worked extensively in both gyms training people(privately of course. I wouldn't be stupid enought to accept the meager wages they give their workers. Have had several friends that have worked there over the years and Golds too). I would say Physiques Unlimited is a true hardcore gym, the one on Atlantic Blvd. and probably the last one in Ft Lauderdale. Every gym has basically "sold out" in a very major way. Honestly to the point where I canceled my membership to the Golds on Commercial and also my Faggot (LA) Fitness. I can't tell you how many times I've walked into the lockeroom and HAVE SEEN WITH MY OWN EYES....gay men MAKING OUT on the benches near the lockers. It is just absolutely disgusting and really degrades the American Homosexual even more than they already are. I have friends that are gay that think the behavior that goes on in these clubs is beyond inappropriate. Golds Gym on Commercial hardcore???? Not by a major longshot. Sorry, SallyAnne but i have to disagree with this one although i agree with you on pretty much everything else on this board. lol

    I have to agree. I used to train at Physiques Unlimited in the late 90s. There's eqpt in there that pre-dates Nautilus and there are dust bunnies under the cardio eqpt that probably date back to 1985. I did love that place tho! I can't believe its still there. There's a World Gym just 2 blocks away on US-1.

    The last time I was helping train a friend at the Firm by SearsTown, I got the most dirty, bitchy looks from the guys there... apparently because I was female.

    I worked out here at Nationals... it sucked frankly. They had a couple good pieces of hammer equipment I like for back... but most of the other stuff was silly. I definitely would not call it hardcore ... they didn't have a hydrolic squat apparatus (or the thing that the bar rests on with big clips - don't know the name of it)

    But I wouldn't say it is hardcore.

    Now... Worlds Gym in San Diego... that's hardcore. We should require pictures of these gyms and their equipment in order for people to add them to the list... so people can at least see the stuff before they decide to train there.

    Possibly relative to any of the numerous Cardio Bunny ranches around there, its still holding a little integrity...
