I have been to some private gyms that were pretty run-down, so Berkeley's was not bad at all in comparison. I personally just did not like how their cardio equipment was set up. Overall, I thought it was a small gym for such a large school the first time I went, but it was not that bad (crowd-wise). The weight room was great, there are plenty of basketball courts, tons of raquetball courts, tons of random classes, and plenty of pools. The place isn't fancy, but definitely suffices. The treadmills however, all face the wall. When I go running, I literally stare at the wall one feet away in front of me. Other than that, there are not really any TV's or anything to watch when you do cardio, so I prefer to jog the rolling hills instead.
