Boise, ID – January 28, 2008
- Bodybuilding.com, the world leader in sports nutrition,
has recognized MetroFlex Gym of Arlington, Texas as
January’s Bodybuilding.com Gym Of The Month. Bodybuilding.com
bestows their Award of Excellence to nutritional supplement
companies and other industry organizations. They now
set the precedent for what makes a gym worthy of the
“To highlight great gyms, we wanted to award one
gym per month with the Bodybuilding.com Gym of the Month
Award. We hope that everyone is looking for the same
things we are in a great gym: friendly knowledgeable
staff, lots of free weights, the right type of machines,
and a motivating environment where serious training
is taking place... all at an affordable price,”
says Bodybuilding.com CEO Ryan DeLuca.
Brian Dobson, a world-renowned
trainer, opened MetroFlex in 1987 (during the growth
of corporate gyms) to fill the niche for a true “hardcore”
gym. MetroFlex Gym is the training ground for IFBB
pros such as Ronnie Coleman (eight-time Mr. Olympia)
and Branch Warren, as well as dozens of other top-level
pro bodybuilders, powerlifters, football players,
fitness athletes and UFC fighters.
So what makes this gym so hardcore?
MetroFlex members have access to equipment that serious
lifters need to build real strength. They have Texas
Power bars, dumbbells up to 250 pounds, a Hatfield
squat bar, hex dl bars, logs and stones for strongmen,
lifting platforms, leg presses that hold up to 2,500
lbs., and many other hardcore machines. They also
top industry events, including the Texas Strongman
Classic, NPC Ronnie Coleman Classic, and NPC Branch
Warren Classic, to name a few.
The second you walk in, you
realize that this isn’t a health spa. Members
abide by the gym’s cardinal rules, like "No
talking while lifting." To give you an idea of
how serious MetroFlex really is, Brian Dobson frequently
butchers deer or other game right in front of the
gym, so he can hand out fresh protein to members as
they head home from their grueling workouts.
These reasons are why Arlington’s MetroFlex
Gym is the Bodybuilding.com Gym Of The Month.
