A Chat with American Barbell Club
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
American Barbell Club provides a unique and perfect atmosphere for any motivated individual looking to become stronger and healthier, which is different from any other gym in Gainesville. Our gym is not about an image, but about pushing your body to the best of its ability, and we are here to help.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?
American Barbell Club’s small class sizes provide the opportunity for one-on-one attention, making sure form is correct and that each person knows we care about their progress. Competition comes from within each person challenging what they accomplished before and striving to hit new personal goals.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
American Barbell Club is owned by an Army combat veteran whose years of experience in many fitness facets inspired him to create a facility where the atmosphere is all about hard work—no mirrors, no scales, no being told to be quiet when you’re frustrated or triumphant.
What do you love most about your job?
The best thing about owning this facility is seeing people strive after things they did not think were possible, pushing themselves to limits, and breaking right through them. The camaraderie that is created between people pushing each other to be better is like no other.
