How are you determining strength weight for online clients?

Working on adding an online training service for clients I don't have room to take on in the studio. When writing programming for the online client, are you trusting/expecting them to provide you with a basic 5RM/10RM? I'm planning more non individualized generic workout templates but as far as...

Anyone ever worked at a gym in NYC (Crunch, NYSC, etc.)?

Hey, guys. Any of you guys ever trained down in an NYC gym? The memberships for some of those gyms are expensive as hell. I'm assuming that the members are kinda rich, then. They're probably more likely to get into training, too. Anyone wanna tell me how wrong I am?
