|I could see how there would be some areas in a gym that would NOT fall under reasonable accommodation/ the dog's presence would compromise legitimate safety requirements necessary for safe operation. For example, there may be mandates that nothing can be between certain pieces of equipment; you wouldn't be allowed to put the dog there.
Instead of getting upset, talk to the manager and ask. This isn't the same as going to the mall and shopping; it's a place where, if full of customers, there are increased risk of harm to the dog by the moving equipment and harm to other customers if they trip over the dog.
I used both the housing area (free) and the "health club" (not free) on base. Both had health & safety policies about keeping certain distances between equipment/nothing being there while equipment was turn on, Most of it was just common sense stuff. Scooter was allowed in the pool & hot tub areas as long as he didn't get in. The health club went above and beyond; their policy included having an employee supervise Scooter so I could enjoy the steam room.
