Hi everyone Thougth this would make a nice thread. When I go on vacation I love to find a gym.Its a great experience to workout in another country or state. The problem is finding a good gym as the best gyms usualy don't spend there money on advertising and if you ask someone who is not into BB to them all gyms are the same. So my question is does anyone know where there is a gym in Portugal in Lisbon or Oporto. Thanks and if I find one I will let you know all about it.

Haven't been to Portugal lately, but consider the thought of doing a bodyweight only routine on vacation. Takes less time out of your day and can be a real change from the norm. And of course, as you mention, the quality in gyms varies so much that it's not worth the bother. On t-mag.com check out "Death by Bodyweight" by Ian King for a pretty decent bodyweight only routine. If you can find anything on vacation to do dips or chins you're fine. Do some one-leg squats and/or deads and you're set.
