I went today for the first time because my gym is under renovations. The owner is so into lifting. While there he was helping a woman squat, helping another person use various machines and helped spot me during my last set of flat bench as I was used to a cage. Its nice to see a gym where the owner is so passionate about lifting. You don't see that much in gyms these days.

About us
