    I visited this gym and 2 other gyms on Saturday.

    Someone had said good things about Anytime Fitness on Campbell Rd. Forget it; not at all hardcore.

    The Royal Oak Gym was fine. Old school gym, good amount of space, not lacking very much. (The only thing I noticed it didn't have was any fixed-weight EZ-curl bars. All their fixed-weight bars were straight ones.) The gym features mostly Cybex equipment.

    Finally, I visited the Powerhouse Gym in Madison Heights (14 Mile and Campbell Rd.), and I thought it was easily the best gym close to me. It had more space and more equipment than Royal Oak Gym, and was $10/month cheaper ($19.99 per month as opposed to $29.99 per month). It also features 24/7 access for members!

    I ended up joining the Powerhouse Gym. Details are:

    Powerhouse Gym
    1461 W. 14 Mile Rd
    Madison Heights, MI 48071
    (248) 589-8030

    I will add this one to the Hardcore Gym Registry, also.

    I've actually toured the MH Powerhouse b/f. I not only liked the gym, but the staff as well. Good choice!
