My gym got sold. It’s becoming a Spunk Fitness.

We offer a full free weight section with dumbbells up to 75 pounds – and no higher. The average person can achieve a great workout with these weights or less. We also offer two smith machines, modular towers with upper and lower pulley systems , leg machines as well as incline, decline, flat, and adjustable benches.

So I guess I need to go find a new gym.  I’m not shooting for ‘average’.
