After reading a post about strength training [1] I'd be curious where people in SF work out.

[1]: http://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=4971196

Valencia Street Muscle = cheap and more free weights and barbells than any other gym I've seen. But is old school, broken and dirty. I guess thats what I love about it.

Embarcadero YMCA, also pretty cheap (compared to equinox and other alternatives in SF) and I go here to go swimming and play basketball and lift before heading to work. It's clean so the fiancee will go here (but not valencia st muscle.. where someone in nothing but a codpiece once worked out next to her)

Do they have bumper plates?

No, wish they did. But nobody is complaining if you just drop them on your olympic lifts. They haven't changed the carpet since the 70s, you can see where everyone else drops them.

Gold's Gym on Shoreline in Mountain View next to Google. $20/month and plenty of barbells for the serious lifter.

where can a hacker hobo take a decent shower for free nowadays?

24 Hour Fitness, because its cheap and everywhere.

World Gym Potrero Hill
