    Ryerson Athletic Centre at Ryerson University, Toronto

    In fall, I'll probably be in University of Toronto, where I'll use the Athletic Centre there.

    The Ryerson one meets all my needs - yes it has a squat rack , and from what I hear, the UofT one is stacked with equipment.

    Kennedy and Ellesmere Goodlife Fitness in Toronto, Canada. It's got enough free weights there and about 4 squat racks. The membership is a bit pricey though for a student like myself; I might cancel it once I head to University of Toronto (Scarborough) assuming that their gym is extensive and not crowded.

    During the school year, I've been working out at Ohio State's Jesse Owens North facility. It used to be 4 basketball courts, but they converted one of them to weights 2 years ago, so it's pretty new!






    But when school's out (like it is right now during the summer), I have to go to another weightroom at Jesse Owens South facility. It's much older, dirtier, and has different types of weights. But the girls are cuter down on south campus, and I like the 0.8 mile jog back and forth before working out more than the 0.4 mile jog to the North Facility.

    The main recreational hall at OSU (Larkins) is being redone right now, and is old as hell. I would know since I swim there all the time, but as far as the weightroom goes, I stay out of it. It'll be state of the art after I graduate, what timing.

    What's also funny about my lifting situation is that at Jesse Owens North, none of us are all that big. We don't have many huge guys that you guys are used to, so it's pretty funny that I'm one of the stronger guys in there.

    Down at Jesse Owens South and Larkins Hall, bigger guys work out. But everyone's still young... so I don't feel all that bad being smaller than all of you guys, but if I went to one of your pro gyms I'd definitely feel out of place!

    Thought Id already posted in this thread, but obviously not!! I train at Total Fitness in Liverpool (UK). Its a massive fitness facility, but also has the largest free weights area in Liverpool. The hydro pool and the steam room are a godsend after a heavy night out!
