The general rule is 120' radius coverage in a open unrestricted area per AP.

I am also using 125's in our gyms, library, and other open areas. Keeping the 120' radius in mind, most of the AP installs are on the perimeter walls covering a lot of dead air. I'm trying to get data installed in the middle of these areas, but marginally successful due to cost. Do you know of any Aruba compatible AP's that have stronger RF signal and can cover large areas with mainly one AP?

The other way to extend RF coverage without breaking the law is by using directional antennas.
By using directional antennas, you will direct the RF back into the occupied space and not into unoccupied ones, you are effectively extending your coverage in that space.
So by using the directional antennas you can "ALMOST" double the 120' coverage into that space.

As the post above states you can use different antennas. Might also try using an AP85 the output is 200mw this will double the power but not double the radius of coverage.

the client), remember to be cognizant of the end-device that the AP is
connecting with and it's transmit power. End-devices are also Tx power
limited, and typically at lower levels, as a mechanism to conserve
If the AP can transmit much stronger than the end-device you can end up
in a situation with asymmetric connectivity. (e.g. Things are good from
AP-to-client, however "not-so-good" from client back-to-AP as the client
doesn't have enough transmit power to talk back).
