somewhere around Ubi area IIRC, haven't been in there yet to see the place as it's still being set up..
Taken from their facebook page (10th Sept 2011):

Will be officially co-sharing the Gym Facility with AspiringGoals Functional Training Center at Wintch Building at Ubi by latest November 2011. Thank you all for the support and encouragement.

That just happened to me today

It's usually some aunty or uncle with a trainer, and the noise disturbs them and they tell the trainer, then the trainer come and tell you

When I told them I'm doing deadlifts and the noise is normal (of course I'm not dropping the bar, gripped it all the way), they told me to do it on a mat I told them no. Morons.

Which branch is this?
ORQ

no banging of plates, grunting etc............... is not a real hardcore gym.
I agreed...how can there be no banging and grunting....
There will always be banging from deadlifts and grunting when doing heavy weights....so long it's not over the top...i believed no one will complain.

From what I know, a former here received complain from other gymers for doing too heavy in seated cable row. IIRC is at Cali.

Really WTF. If the machine has that number of weight blocks to add on, then how can there be such a thing as too heavy?

Because he 'dropped' the weights and make noise?

When did gyms become library?

Seriously, I love how they tell people to keep the noise down. So we can hear the gym's ****ty music?

Maybe the noises sound too intimidating to the uncles and aunties.

That seriously ruined my mood today. Especially when I was doing 5x5 and supersetting squats and deads. WTF, already balls to the walls and these morons tell me to keep the noise down or perform deads on a mat.

Next time I'll ask them to demonstrate their deads to me. NBCCB. I'm still pissed off thinking about it.

Treadmills have audio jack. Weights machine no. Bikes don't have I think.

Classes are generally busy/full and look intense from the outside. They must be doing something right if the crowd keeps coming. Though this will probably vary depending on the branch you use.

I've attended their RPM classes, quite alright, gives you the motivation to cycle through one hour without feeling bored if you were to do it alone. Gonna try out Bodycombat and Bodypump soon though :>

Treadmills have audio jack. Weights machine no. Bikes don't have I think.

Actually pardon me for asking this noob question.. but where is the audio jack on the threadmill located at? =x

Yeah unless you go for the really early morning classes, then not so packed. I guess most people go gyms like FF also for the classes, that's why so crowded. Certain classes dominated by females, sometimes see liao also dont feel like entering tsk

It's a box next to the emergency stop on treadmill, has buttons for volume and channel, with an LCD showing you the channel.

I go to AMK FF.

Hmm but I thought for machines not that good to be too noisy?? If can't control the weight then carry less heavier??
