Meet the Team
I created this space with one vision… To create a space where anyone and everyone felt comfortable walking through the doors. I am not your average gym owner, I’m not even your average gym goer…I’m just a big guy that likes lifting heavy objects. I workout to help my mental health more than my physical health.
Lifting heavy makes me feel less anxious and happier. I’m taking a hard left hand turn in life
opening this gym, and hope you join me on this journey!

Favourite lift: Deadlift . There is nothing like picking something heavy off the ground! It’s so raw. So animalistic. Most likely why I’m really enjoying Strongman training right now.
