Sorry to hear about this. It all depends on the release and waiver of liability that you signed when you joined the gym. There is most likely a medical payment provision to the policy up to 5K. Ask for copies of all the documents that you signed when you joined and have an attorney review the waiver of liability if there is one.
You should speak with a Personal Injury attorney immediately to provide more facts about the accident. More information is needed about the premises and the gym's liability in regard to the dangerous condition possibly created by violation of the code. Your injuries sound quite substantial so do not delay in seeking the proper legal advice. Most firms offer free over the phone consultations.
Your damages are incredibly high and the real question is what documents you may have signed releasing the gym. Also, I'd wonder who moved the bench, how it caused you to fall, etc. It's a situation that definitely requires investigation. A lot of the lawyers on here would offer free consultations.
