A decade ago, Byron and Tami Hicks opened a small gym in Montgomery, Il. It was a single rental unit, in an industrial building. 1,100sq/ft, if rounded up. Their mission was to offer the same old school gym, that Byron and Tami were both accustom to. So many facilities at that time were succumbing to the new fitness industry standard of cardio and lifting machines – minimal free weights, dumbbells, barbells and certainly NO CHALK or Baby Powder allowed in these fitness malls.
Almost no gyms were truly ‘lifter friendly’ anymore. -Byron Hicks
