Then you are training at the wrong gym. The gyms I have trained (and train at) at are much like the "dojo" atmosphere you describe --- It becomes a family. If that were not true, I wouldn't make the trip to the gym, I'd work out at home.



I've trained at gyms where everyone is happy to spot you & all of that, but the sempai-kohai system seems to make a difference, at least from my experience.
