Fellas,

I am planning a trip w/ my good friends Rob and Dana Bailey from Flag Nor Fail. Rob is a monster and Ms. Dana Linn is fresh off her IFBB Pro Card. We are going to have a week traveling from New York, heading south...Hitting a different gym each day as we go, documenting our entire trip via video.

My question for my you my brothers is about which gyms we should hit. Have a few in mind bit definately open to suggestions... We were tentatively thinking, Brooklyn, North Jersey, Maryland, Washington, West Virginia. If there is a 'must train at' gym thats what im lookin for. Use Diamond Gym as a point of reference when makin ur suggestions.

I appreciate the feedback as always. Lookin forward to seein what you guys come up with.

In my honest opinion, as far as my experience, World Gym in Ocean City Maryland, is one of, if not the best in MD.
No affiliation, other than I lived in OC the summer of '08 and training there was a great experience.

Plus, you've got the beach and nightlife etc..
And some good spots for a post-workout meal, I'd suggest Nicks Original house of ribs on 145th street.

The gym is on 67th street...Great atmosphere, kept spotless, great equipment, cranked up satellite radio playing rock music...

Have a great trip man

Yeah, i want to head up that way, maybe a road trip from south mississippi up to the Arnold in 2013, then head over to the U and Animal HQ and see if I can get in there and hit up a workout with the boys. If they allow that. And maybe up to a few other areas.
