You can walk around freely and not have to wait for ANY weights. Plus everyone is pretty nice and helpfull. Month to month membership too… if you are just into weights and some cardio and dont need all the fru fru stuff, then this is the place to go.”

These are so key because improper form can lead to serious injuries, or even worse, spinal damage. One of the most important things to consider is your back.
