2007-03-15 17:23:00   I must agree that the weight room has quite a lot of posers yet all gyms have them. There are different types of people in a gym: Those who are posers, those who go for the social gathering, etc. You should not let it get to you and just do your thing. Many are entering the weight room for the first time and do not understand how to exercise. The ARC overall is a decent gym (wished there was a pool) if you just want to get in shape. —BrandonToo

2007-06-03 21:11:36   The classes are so fun! I love Zumba! —MarjaMorgan

2007-07-01 22:57:20   The weight room has to be one of the craziest weight rooms i have ever been in. For a room drenched in the smell of sweat and feet, it sure is jam packed with gangs of 90 lb asian kids trying to bench the bar and giggling. This is the only thing that annoys me, that since their memberships are paid for in tuition, any skinny nerd can come in and spend an hour misusing a machine so that i have to wait for them to finish. I felt so much better when i was back in my hometown gym. —fredchen

If you had balls you would give some of your "workout wisdom" to this guy/guys instead of bitching about it. And it does suck that the price is in tuition for people that don't want to use it it or don't go because they are intimidated by people like you. —HowardLuong

2007-08-07 18:31:50   Apparently people at the ARC aren't too friendly with "skinny nerds," but what about ladies in the weight room? Are there many girls who use the weight room, and do they get treated well? —NicoleWoodyard

There aren't a whole lot of women in the weight area, but I've never had or seen a problem. Mild surprise is about the extent of it... —LizPhillips

the nerds come and go. but when they're here, they're usually sitting and talking on benches and machines instead of using them.

and ladies, lift heavy. dont be a pink dumbbell cardio bunny —FredChen

2007-08-21 23:21:31   anyone know where they have rowing machines open for public use? —xander

There are two or three in the back right corner of the main fitness room, between the wall and the elliptical trainers. — JaneGreene

2007-09-06 15:37:52   I'm a grad student transferring to Davis from Univ. of Washington. Just wondering if the ARC has ergometers (real Concept 2 rowing machines). I just need to know if I'm going to need to buy one before I get down there this Fall. —Patrick

2007-11-18 01:17:03   Nothing is more irritating than going into the gym, and having all the machines taken up by people who have so little weight on the bar/machine that they gain essentially no health benefits from the exercise. Pretty bad. —sososharp

Everyone has to start somewhere. Better to use the gym than not, right? —LizPhillips

  • i just wish the new years resolutions groups would get out already. it's infuriating when you need to a do a few sets on the bench and they're sittin on BOTH the bench and the machine next to it in a tight circle, talking. TALKING. you cant even get through. gotta walk around the other machines —FredChen
