A somewhat lifelong type of dream came true for me this month. We opened a gym called Kansas City Barbell at 1714 Holmes Street in the East Crossroads section of KC.
How did this happen and why did this happen?
To avoid boring you with all sort of small details, I will keep this as general as possible and do this in a list format.
Sean Dunston uprooted his life for this venture because he trusts this vision and what we want to do.
My wife, Sarah, is on the ownership group because she supports in my dreams fully.
I added more to my plate because I don’t want to be just the guy who works IN a gym and trains people online… I want to be a destination spot. I want my online clients to say, “my coach OWNS Kansas City Barbell”. I want them to one day have the option to travel to KC to work with me directly. I want to open up strength training and barbell work to the awesome people that live and work in a city that I fucking love, downtown KC.
I have intentionally done the one thing I feared most in life… a fear that I never once expressed publicly or even to many people. I have created roots in an area and I have created permanence.
Why did I do it when I could have made a great life with just online training? Well there are a few reasons.
Thank you to Sean and my amazing wife for supporting a man with a dream and going all-in with this venture.
Let’s make Kansas City stronger and fitter.
It is time to shine.
