When we were training out of a makeshift gym in a garage during the winter of 2020, we found that we wanted more. We wanted a place not just for ourselves but an entire community. We wanted a space that we were comfortable to train. We didn't want to be ostracized for dropping weights or using chalk. We wanted a space where we could be encouraged to learn, to lift heavy and not be restricted in training. We wanted a space that was for the community, and of the community. We saw that this was possible, so through pure force of will, we did it ourselves.
