Pros: Clean, nice new equipment, nice cardio equipment. Cons: No barbell decline bench press!! Dumbbells only go up to 70LBS! Only one machine for back (that uses plates)!! The fixed barbells do not get heavy either (only 50 or 60lbs max). No 35LB plates (would be nice just to have 1 or 2, for some exercises where you're actually holding the plate). Beware that enrollment is for 2 years if get the 9.99/mo rate. It's a "24 Hour gym" that is only open 24 hrs on tues wed thurs. Overall, the gym is nice, but if you are someone who lifts a lot with heavier dumbbells or fixed barbells, you might want to go elsewear. I asked someone who worked there if they would be getting more, and I was told it's a 24 hour gym, so they will not be getting more. I was pretty dissapointed to find this out considering I signed up before the gym was built. The gym is very nice, but not the best gym for a serious weight lifter.
If you are looking for the best Jiu-Jitsu training experience in Buffalo, NY - you'll find it here. Chuck Anzalone ( Ricardo de la Riva Blak Belt) provides a friendly relaxed and informative atmosphere where you can learn and apply the art of Jiu-Jitsu. While I'm in Buffalo (I'm based out of Yonkers, NY) this is the only academy I train out of. Take 30 days (which are completely free) and come and see for yourself why this is one of the best Jiu-Jitsu Academy’s' in the STATE. I promise, you'll be glad that you did.
I agree, Steel Mill Gym is the absolute best gym in the Buffalo area. I am getting fabulous results from training there with Charlie Anderson. If you are looking for a great gym and lasting results, You will definitely find them there.
