Hi all im joining a gym hopefully the end of this month and was talking to a mate of mine and he joined a club which has got a really good rep round here (ellesmere port north west uk) and he said it was full of idiots and people who thought there really hard and just basically dick heads. So hes now left there and goes to a private gym with a trainer that tbh sounds really micky mouse and silly ( the trainer has 18 black belts and apparantly does all their classes) which to me sounds daft. Anyways i was just wondering does that rough atmosphere spur you on to train harder or like my mate would you rather go private and stay outta their way. Im a bit in the middle really i think im gunna join a gym with a similar attitude (rough) but its not near me so i wont know these guys where as my local is full of knob head i went to skool with and dont really want to have to deal with them again. Discuss!
