Im 16 going on 17 years old and to me a good gym that fit's my needs has to be realtivly enexspenive, and have a WIDE variety of free weights. Any experince or thoughts of gym reconmmendations are welcome.
In a nutshell I want to build muscle in a cheap gym that has ALL the equipment I need to do so.
I live in the very edge of Downtown Newport News, I can literally walk into hampton within 3 blocks , if this helps you out with my proximity to other places.
Thank you for your feedback.

I don't live in your area. But in many places the YMCA is affordable. I think the cost is scaled based on the member's income. You could check it out. Newport News Family YMCA: Peninsula Metropolitan YMCA

My suggestion is to stop by the YMCA location you would use and ask for a tour of the facility.

If you are into body building, then Gold's Gym would be more your speed.

The one I go to has quite a lot of free weights, but each one is different. See if they'll let you look at the free weights section.

Take a tour. The YMCA's around this area are pretty nice.

There's also a Bally's Fitness in Newport News. They have an offer of 7 free days to test them out.
