Hey Everyone! I'm new to JEFIT and just wanted to say hello. My goals are to turn myself into a Lean, Jacked, Badass and I'll be using this site, to track my slow but steady progress a little better, and hopfully meet and swap ideas with some people.
Make sure to say hi,

Hi, welcome to the forums!!! I live in Manchester too! (Levenshulme/Gorton). Which gym do you go to? I use Fitness First in the City Centre.

I've got a pretty sweet set up in my garage at home lol
but it looks like my bro in-law is going to drag me to Phoenix Gym in Radcliffe.
its nothing posh like your gym but it gets the job done.

Sometimes the smaller gyms can be better - they've got decent free weights equipment instead of filling the space with expensive machines that aren't as good.
Fitness First has this vibrating platform thing that just doesn't seem to have any use at all. It has a poster on the wall next to it that shows all the exercises that supposedly you can do on it. They're all just basic plyometric type stretches and stuff that you could do on any patch of floor!!!! So rather than investing in decent equipment for the members to use, they've bought an expensive machine that just vibrates a bit while people stand on it looking stupid!!!

Vibrating Platform eh! sounds like fun.
think I'll stick to the floor though like you said haha.
Yeah thats what this gyms like loads of free weights and a couple of basic machines here and there,
but no posey equipment.
Cheers bud. your right on the money there progress is still progress no matter how slow!

Most gyms try to get the clients with deeper pockets so they get those fancy machines for them to use. I toured a couple gyms around here and they have 3 times more fancy equipment as they do free weights .

Play they have plenty free weights and a few other weight
Machines that you can add plates to if you max the normal
