Hell all. I'll be in Johnson City for a few months at the most. I'm looking for a gym. I don't want a large, commercial fitness centre. I want a proper gym where I can lift weights (deadlift, squat, etc.), use chalk and basically just go for it without being bothered. Location isn't a problem as long as it's in Johnson City. Also, month-to-month payment (or even per visit) is best. I can't commit to anything long-term. Thanks in advance for any advice given.

@notroll: A thousand thanks for the recommendation. The gym is spot on: no AC or heat; allows chalk; any music goes; weights everywhere; no bozos roaming around and it's cheap. I never imagined I'd find such a place in East TN. \m/

Lifestyle has went down. A lot of the employes are unfriendly and arrogant. I would not recommend it. The place is not being cleaned and they have also taken out the hot tubs.

These are places to go to for Zumba or to listen to soft pop music, not to left weights.

Gym is OK. Lots of maintenance issues abound. For example, not all of the bathroom stalls even have doors. Also, I have actually watched the staff fight in front of everyone.
So, if you are looking for a crappy gym where you just want to lift, this may be the place for you. If you expect machines to work, consider somewhere elder.

Amen to that!!!! Also, start cleaning up the women's locker room or the health dept. might get a call!!!
