This all started as a funny idea while lifting in a friends garage listening to Metallica one summer day. 4 years of letting the idea percolate and here we are. With the help of friends and family I am able to share with you all my love of weightlifting.
We operate is a key code gym that offers 24/7/365 access to members after a short interview process. This concept of gym was spurred by the fact that not everyone has the same schedule or desire to work out in the afternoon/evenings. What this means if after roughly 1-2 months of membership a code will be entered into the door that is individualized to the member for access.
