A gym with a reasonable amount of free weights in Inner Western Sydney.
I asked this in the excercise thread to not much response (or maybe I just missed it because I'm an idiot).

Basically, just moved to Alexandria. The Anytime Fitness here has one shit squat rack that's always being used, even when I go ridiculously late. The one in my old 'hood had two squat racks and even that wasn't really enough.

So basically, I'm wondering if anyone knows of a reasonably good gym geared more towards lifting in the Inner West? Training is suffering something fierce because the one piece of equipment I use constantly is generally in use. They have a second olympic bar, but not really enough space to set the thing up for dead lifts.

So yeah, any help on this front would be massively appreciated. More than happy to leave Alexandria.

A few peeps have recommended the Sydney Uni gym, I think Wet Cardboard uses it? Would be pretty handy to you.

Cheers, I contemplated it but thought there'd be more free weight inclined thinking peoples in sports.

Barbells = necessary to what I like doing, and the amount of money I'd have to spend on barbell + squat rack + all of the plates I'd need + a new house I could fit all these things in is too much for my unemployed mind to tabulate, but it's a lot.

Unemployment won't last much longer, getting little jobs here and there (hooking, you know how it is), and if all that fails, the missus pulls in a fair salary, so I can just be trophy boyfriend.

More importantly, my monthly gym fees don't come to $70. $50 is more the trend.

The honour of having me set foot on your property ought to be enough payment.
