Default how far away?

I was woundering how far do you guys drive to your gym? today I drove 16 miles to check out some gyms. I went into a gym that wasnt far from the kronk gym and I got to meet steve forbes. anyway im thinking about changing gyms and going to a new one anyway here is the diffrence between the gyms

my current gym:
11 miles away from my house
2-4 trainers depending on the day
open 5 days a week 5-8
trainers dont really work with you they only tell you what your doing wrong but not how to fix it
1 pro that comes in once or twice a week
3 sparring partners
60 bucks a month

gym i want to go to:
16 miles away
3-5 trainers with either a crap load of amateur fights or had pro fights
lots of pros come in such as rubin willams,k9,steve forbes
monday-sat 3-9
from what i say there trainers paid fairly great attention and worked good with the fighters
they had alot of fighters that were around 16-22 and have fighters from 132-heavyweight that train there.
30 bucks a month
please share your thoughts and id like to know how far do you guys go to get to your gym? and how far is too far for a gym?

I walk approximately 150 meters. I dont own a car though. I'd be willing to walk 40 mins or so to training, more than that and it would be a bit annoying. My post is probably completely unhelpful to you.

sixteen miles doesnt seem too bad. boxing gym in my town is twenty mintes away but is getting closed down.
i drive to the next town about 10 miles away. not a real problem if you have a car.
also that one your thinking about going to seems much better. seems you would learn more training with trainers like that.

22 miles to the gym, 22 miles back home. closest one around if im not mistaken.

5 miles isnt a real difference. and diomedes why not run to the gym and run home?
