Great "family" gym. The owner's are great and the work outs really work if you follow the plan..
Medina's gym is a true "iron" gym. That said, Carl & Bob are two of the nicest people you will ever meet and if you know nothing about fitness and weight lifting, they will educate you. I started out as a size 18~ and one year later I was a size 10. This had everything to do with the coaching and training I got at Medina's Gym (and I'm a woman!). Guys really love this gym too because of the enormous variety of machines and weights. There is never a line for anything. Recently Medina's switched over to Syrius Satellite and now you can workout without commercial breaks too. Carl has trained world-class bodybuilders and usually has 1 or 2 people in the Contra Costa Bodybuilding show. So, as you can see there is something for everyone at Medinas.
