Living in Tampa, I realized how saturated it is with these large gyms. I was training at one of the common, well known facilities and hated the experience. The crowds, the lines for a single machine, and the general stuck up vibe. It was a miserable experience. It's nothing like I have experienced in my 7 deployments to Iraq, Afghanistan, and Syria. Over there, novice lifters could come in and feel comfortable while serious athletes could train without the constraints of overcrowding. This is why I decided to open The Forge, and make it the best gym in South Tampa. I wanted to recreate this atmosphere and bring it to my home town. I put everything I have into this gym and I take pride in being it's caretaker.
