RE: Virgin Gyms
i train at virgins but i'm looking to change gyms. Few good points in our gym (manchester): lots of space, all free weights that you need, not too busy, squat rack free most of the time, punch bags, free cardio studios to do farmers walk in...
few negatives: loads of posers, squat rack not adjustable, weight plates are very small (works my botton DL position very well!), people stare at you when doing things like deadlifts, farmers walks, heavy lockouts, bottom position benching/narrow grips, well, people seem to stare at you all the time! And above all this one is fairly cheap compared to many other chain gyms, 24£/month.
