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?
