PF isnt THAT bad, I think we already covered this. You can grunt a little, but if your yelling or making too much noise that stupid alarm will go off. again, the place is mostly for people who want to tone up and do cardio stuff. it isnt for people to go and max lift and shit. they have a couple smith machines, dumbells up to 85, and some machines. you cant touch a place like that for $10 a month to get healthy. if you want to look like Bill Kazmaier, lou ferrigno or cory everson it isnt the place for you. if you want to do squats to make your ass bigger you can do that at PF. deadlifting no, but squats yes.
