For an allegedly degreed individual, you are quite dullwitted. I will have to assume that statistics was not among the classes you took. A per capita statistic is valid when counting heads, but not for "race" since it does not exist (please check that before making a further fool of yourself. Hint: Human Genome Project.
The percentage of a "race" collecting welfare is IRRELEVANT. It does not talk about the dollars and cents of welfare, and in that regard, WHITE PEOPLE collect the vast majority of all welfare dollars. Any "racial" comparisons you want to make are merely your need to feel like you are not the problem.

This is a cold hard fact that you cannot debunk. You are dismissed.
I can see that you know nothing about percentages and never took any math classes. Too bad as it makes you look ignorant.

LOL, you are no one to assess class or refinement. I know that people who do not pay attention to their hygiene have less class than someone who does. I can even excuse the occasional skipped shower, but my experience at Golds has been smelly and unpleasant. I am not fond of LA Fitness either.
In response to your first sentence: Yes, I am. I didn't resort to name calling as you did.
As for the rest of your post: Gyms normally are "fragrant". It's the nature of the beast.

Did not fail math. Never lived in any "hood". Earned a Masters, live in an oceanfront home I own in the 90274. This forum crawls with poor white uneducated trash.

Fair enough, but I was addressing the classless individuals on here who were mentioning that having blacks at LA Fitness was some sort of problem. I merely offered another viewpoint. However it seemed to me that Golds Gym was far more "fragrant" than LA Fitness.

I personally am very grateful for Gold's Gym. Not once, but twice, they have exhibited that they are a business with heart, and it was years apart. They don't even know they did, because it was different management, so that tells me they genuinely care for the people in their community. I would support them any day.

I didn't read all the way back to 2009 so I have no idea when a gym thread became a race issue. It seems to me that some people on this thread are using race to be a fat ass. Funny when I go to the gym I donít see much of either race but when Popeyes was open both races was in a line wrap around the block. Face it we are a fat asses and this whole gym thread is joke.

It amazes me that the same people who are bitching about blacks at the gym, are the same ones who will socialize with them in their own neighborhoods. I Googled LA Fitness as my husband and I are ready to find a gym. I found this site instead.

I have a dear friend, a cancer survivor who is post surgery. She's used the LA Fitness gym for its pool for several months now. Her son who's 5, goes to the play area and neither has had any complaint about the odor or the staff. I've seen all races there; staff and customers.

All gyms make me nervous because they require an EFT account payment that I am not comfortable with but will probably do anyway. I'd like to use the LA pool and its sauna from time to time and they have no contract.

If anyone has had any issue with LA not ending the EFT after the account has been canceled, please post so here. This is what I Googled gyms for.

Stay away unless you want THUGS lurking at you and your possessions - man and women.

I had my locker broken into as I worked out once AND my car was vandalized another time.

If you don't want to believe it, just ask any cop who rides through the parking lots...

Douglasville cops will tell you this place is a hangout for convicted felons and THUGS.

The facility is nice though if you get past all the curly pubic hair in the bathrooms and pool areas.

I just moved to the Douglasville area and I'm looking for a gym. I've read this entire thread and have to say I am appauld.
I feel so fortunate to have grown up learning to evaluate someone on their abilities and what they can contribute to society... n o t on the color of their skin.
I REALLY hope that it is only a handful of extreem self-righteous self absorbed people posting some of the truly nasty comments on here and not representative of the general population.
Isn't this post about local gyms?
After reading maybe I'll just pass and "home gym"
Thank you "reality check" for your comments. Any other sane people out there or did I make a big mistake moving here...???

I don't think I ever visited a fitness center and determined whether I would join by the color of the staffís skin. Unprofessionalism is not acceptable for any race but to single one race out seems outrageous. We are in 2012 and you really need to look at the quality of person and not their skin. I would not want to workout with such closed minded people anyway. Enjoy your day from an African American!!

Lived in D'ville since early '93, have never joined a gym, but am looking to due to specific equipment needs. I just visited both LA and Golds CH twice each and it's clear that LA is much less diverse to put it lightly. I found it curious to have my conversation with the girl at front desk at L.A. interrupted by what looked to be a thug sitting in the lobby. He shouted out from afar, asking me if i'm gonna join. I advised him, 'we'll see.' The sales person was polite and helpful. I was concerned about statements on their web site about working closely with police, and was advised this relates to both steroid sales and break-ins. Most interesting to me, an old white guy with good hygiene :), is that there has been zero follow up from the sales staff. In fact, I've written corporate to inquire about the responsibilities of a 'sales counselor', and if this is expected, or if this is engineered lack of diversity at LA.

I have received equally good and poor service from both black and white people and anyone speaking poor English whether it's ebonite or redneck mumble is unacceptable.
I have been a member of Golds for 28 years and have always considered them like a family.
I went to LA once and Found it to be uninspiring and inflexible in terms of pricing.
I don't do classes, play racket ball, or swim, so I only pay 15,dollars a month. Why should I pay for something I don't do.
Golds may not be as big, but their flexible pricing and service have kept my business.
