Basically, what it all boils down to is the BYU gym is archaic, cram packed, and more hassle than it's worth. It's good to know that our football team has recently been moved to a superior facility. I am not trying to be bitter against the football team. Even though their performance has struggled recently they still deserve to have a premium training facility.

The problem is the other 29,000 students should not be limited to such small facilities. During few hours of the day when classes are not going on ... the gym is packed with gray shirted BYU students. Now ... how are we going to get buff and impress the ladies if we're waiting in line?

There's always 24 Hour Fitness ... it's pretty nice.
