As a World Gym patron for quite some time, I'm quite happy going to a place that's clearly more about working out than a meat market (although some *may* argue this point with me, and I'd totally understand). Overall, I don't feel intimidated by the other patrons, the staff or even the machines. People there are friendly and can help out, and the cardio area is full of machines that will never keep you waiting. Overall, a comfortable place.
Pros: Good staff!, Tons of cardio., Parking's not bad.
Cons: Sweltery lockerroom.
