Co-owner Bill Mayo says the process of getting the gym open has been a long, but fun progress and says that Butchertown was an easy choice.

"We got the stadium going in...a stone's throw from here," Mayo said. "Amazing local businesses, great local people - why not? I mean, this is the best place in the city."

He says the gym is offering a founder membership rate for the next three months.
