Joining a gym isn’t just about running on a treadmill; you can also get the kind of specialized training that will take your exercise program to a whole other level. A new exercise facility is opening up in Emporia that is going to be managed by professional Mix Martial Arts fighter Daniel Gallemore. Members will have an amazing opportunity to train alongside Gallemore and get into shape like never before.
“Hoping for a high-intensity gym,” Gallemore told a local newspaper. “Mostly fighters, like self-defense and jujitsu. We do quite a bit of wrestling. Muay Thai, probably bring some boxing guys in. Do some seminars and stuff. It will mostly be like a combative gym, mixed martial arts gym. It won’t be just for fighters, but it will be geared around mixed martial arts.”
That space that Gallemore is setting up in his used to be a salon storage area. That has required some serious modifications. “It used to be a salon,” Gallemore said. “There were sinks and counter tops and plumbing and lighting and speaker wires and all kinds of stuff up there along with the stuff that was in storage. It was very organized. We had to go through and demo everything and reorganize a lot of stuff. Dusty’s brother went up there and painted the walls. We’ve got to put tin on the ceiling now. We even had to tear some Styrofoam clouds off the ceiling that they had up there for decoration. We still have some wiring to do. Got to move some more stuff out of storage to downstairs and tidy some things up.” Are you ready to step into the ring?
This is just a snapshot of one of the many gyms operating in the Kansas City area and it’s a perfect example of the number one benefit you get from joining a gym: personal attention. Even if you don’t have a trainer working with you there is still the opportunity to take all kinds of classes at the gym. If you have an occasional question about an exercise or piece of equipment those trainers will be happy to answer that. You’re not going to get that kind of attention in your home gym set up.
Time to get real: Do you have a treadmill in your home? Some dumbbells? One of those crazy all-in-one gym workout stations? If so when was the last time you used any of that? Yes, the intention was to make it easy to workout because it’s right in the next room but the reality is that you might not be getting the workout you truly need especially if you have limited space. Embrace that fact that that unused gym equipment is now officially junk. Now you’re choice is simple: call up Junk King Kansas City to get rid of it all! They’ll take it away and you can get serious about your workout by joining a gym. Who knows what you can transform into?
