They will have plenty of lifting equipment, free weights, etc. Some are different from others. When I lived in Atlanta, there was one that I went to that had a bball court, Olympic sized pool, jacuzzi, sauna, etc. Generally from my experience, the trouble can be that they get so busy that you can't get anywhere. However, usually the weights are not too busy as most people focus on cardio.
Not sure if you work at a corporate office or something like that, but you can ask your human resources dept. and see if they can possibly strike a deal with LA Fitness. Typically the people at LA Fitness give you a spiel about initial application fee and then they 'waive' the fee and give you a flat monthly fee. But if you can get your work to help sign me you up, you can save a few dollars a month. I think the monthly fee for the regular person was $40 a month, but with my work I got it to something like $28.
Generally a good gym, but it's meant for the 9-to-5 crowd.
The integrity of the Dallas Sports Media can be summed up in this quote 'I've gotta be the bad guy on CBS11 and my radio job on ESPN. I don't have to be the bad guy here.'
