    Anyone know of a good gym in Minneapolis? I am not a real picky guy. Lets say preferably DBs up to 125-150, Some good benches, Squat Racks, and maybe a platform and some decent hammer strength type stuff, preferably a legpress that you can load up beyond 1000lb. Just as a basis, feel free to throw ideas at me.

    I may be moving there to take a job. I am not really a bodybuilder or a PL'er, sort of a Powerbuilder, I have been DC'ing for a while, but that has been in a college gym, if I cant finnd a gym with a ton of equipment, I'll swtich to a 5/3/1 or other type of powerlifting/powerbuildig routine.

    I haven't had to train, yet, while in Minneapolis so I am unsure as to the good gyms in the area.

      There are a quite a few good gyms there but I have not lived in that area in over 13-14 years. Any idea where your company is located so you have an idea of what part you will be living in?

        I will post up a few when I get a second. I have only heard of them though, never actually been to any of them. I have just been lifting at LA Fitness since I moved up here out of convenience, as they are everywhere.

            Skip, thanks for the reply, I will be emailing you about rates if/when I take this job. Is there any availability as of this fall(ish)?

            I have been told most people live uptown, granted I've never been there so I have no idea what that means? Looking on the map, lol it looks like we will be on the southend of Minneapolis. Down as far as richfield, but more likely a little north of that by lake calhoun?

            Thanks Macho, I will take a look at all of those gyms as well as the LA fitness. Is the LA fitness you lift at reasonably equipped?

              looks like los campeones is the closest to where I will be, but I dunno, I will definitely take a closer look at these places if I go out thre to take a look around.

              Thanks guys!

                As of right now, I do have room in the fall. This year is weird, though, because I am filling spots further ahead of time than the last couple years so if you are wanting a fall spot, try to hit me by about June because those open spots are likely to dwindle after that. I always have to keep a couple spots open for the bigger shows in the fall for last minute "oh shit" preps for people to hit me up after their prep guy has not paid enough attention to them. I them have to swoop in and save the day. lol

                  Ok, I will have made a decision on this by June, so I will email you before then. Probably early/midmay.

                    uptown is a pretty small area of the city, so I wouldnt bank on it being close to your new job.

                      Other than the bitter cold and long winters the twin cities is a great area you should be able to find something that fits your needs once you are settled in. If all else fails there surely is a Golds up there, I bet.
                      Heavy squats fix everything.
