We're officially 3k+ followers strong. This may not seem like much, but if you look at other gyms, you'll see this is a pretty decent number, especially since I don't take out ads (Instagram won't publish them because of the language I use but even if they did, I wouldn't use them) or do any form of giveaways, discounts, etc.
The reason the facility keeps growing is it's more than just a gym. It's a symbol for something greater. Valhalla represents a set of ideals and values. It stands for a code of conduct. In no way did I want this place to be so shallow that it's only purpose would be for people to come and train. It had to be more.
Now when people think of the facility they think of community, they think of results, and they think of a place where the "serious" people go. Some people may tell you "that's where the meatheads train," or "they only allow certain people there." All of these I'm okay with.
Do we have a ton of "meatheads" here? Fuck yeah. The difference is they aren't douchebags and have proven time and time again that as long as you show you're serious about being here, they will offer LIMITLESS advice on how to help you achieve your goals.
Do I only cater to certain people? Fuck yeah. They created Planet Fitness for lazy, undisciplined people. Awesome! Those people need a place where they can feel welcome. Valhalla was created to cater to the opposite end of the spectrum, because those people needed a place where they could train, free of distractions and bullshit, to keep achieving the results all the "average" people whine about not being able to get. Hmmmmm.
As always, thank you to all my members and guests. YOU guys make the facility what it is and have helped it continually grow since Day 1. The only reason the facility has the recognition it does is because you guys embrace the culture here and spread the message. Keep that hit up and let's keep pissing everyone else off. #hardcore #hardcoregym #valhalla #viking #heathen #barbarian #trainforvalhalla #bodybuilding #powerlifting #strongman #fitness #physique #ifbb #npc #dtfw #myJM #fuckaverage #discipline #determination #dedication #tribementality #huntforhardcore
