My current workout venue is getting flaky...last minute cancellations, long vacations.
I am serious about 3x/week weight training.
Can anyone recommend a gym that has good equipment, experienced trainers.
Chapala, Ajijic. English or Spanish speaking.

I do need a dedicated trainer for set appointments.  (If I don't have an appointment I tend to find reasons not to go...)

gracias!

PD: I did try searching "gym," "workout" and "trainer" on this board, but no luck.

There used to be a gym in Chapala for serious workouts. Maybe someone will know if its still around. Usually such gyms are for the diehard lifters and seem to me incompatible with the more yuppie lets get physical crowd.

zona caters to all types and they are extremely well equipped. never saw any "yuppies" there but did see some gringas/gringos and canuckles amongst the mexicans both male and female. everybody was sweating in various degrees of seriousness. so what is a "yuppie" gym user,in any event-hmmmm?

First Pedro I beg permission to steal the word Canuckles.  A yuppie gym, in the day, was where the average person went to keep toned.   A bodybuilders gym didn't have stationary bikes, elliptical machines or treadmills.  Rather, it had squat racks, leg press machines and free-weights on olympic bars.   If you couldn't press over 225 it was not a place to train for serious body builders or power lifters who might grunt loudly often and you'd hear the reverberation when the weights made contact with the floor.   If you walk into a professional training facility, well, think Muscle Beach in California where the Arnie's, Dave Drapers and Larry Scotts congregated.  The yuppie gym, well there you found Frankie Avalon.   Remember the OP asked for a bodybuilders gym so I'm assuming some serious pumping. And girls in a gym --- unheard of!

zona has equipment of both TYPES as you describe in all respects and you sir are a misogynist of the first order even calling women "girls". some of the "girls" at tha gym could probably out lift and out grunt the likes of you-SNORK!
some of us even get rehab programmes designed by our physio therapists and exclusively use weights and equipment other than treadmills bikes and ellipticals. never been to zona have you?

Whoa down lady, don't shoot the messenger. You asked what a serious bodybuilding gym was and I told you based on my experience. Why so rude and argumentative?

the op has requested a certain type of gym which also offers quality assistance and several of us have suggested zona because we have actually used it and their experienced trainers.

Luis, the owner of Health House on Guerrero in Chapala where we go is a serious body builder himself and competes along with others that train at his gym. He is always there any time we go and usually lifting while his wife, son, or another employee handle the desk, so he'd be available for appointments to suit your needs. He also speaks English. He keeps adding new equipment and upgrading now that the new second story is open.

doesn't look like what the op is looking for but zona has it. i was paying 200p/month at zona unlimited days but doing it 3 times a week was all i could take. my workouts were developed by my physiotherapist.

That depends on your perspective. This couple owned and operated gyms in Canada. They are both certified trainers and highly skilled. If he wants to body build he should talk to Ron himself to see if it fits his needs.

That is an old video from his home gym. He now has a professional gym on the carratera. In any event I am not interested in debating you, you were not the original poster. I simply shared a link for the OP to consider, no other comments were asked for or required. Have a nice evening.

He is, very, but he wants to work, trying to survive brain cancer is expensive as all get out. Working keeps him sane and brings in much needed money to pay the bills. He'll work as long as he can, hopefully indefinitely.
