Felt compelled to start a thread thanking Emporium Gym for all they did to enable a truly stellar ABC event this past weekend.

Warren Dyson, his staff at the gym and Rich from Tropicana Health and Fitness, went above and beyond to facilitate an awesome Animal Barbell Club gathering.

In the years I have known them, they've done so much to support us and to represent Animal it is astounding, and this event was the true embodiment of that commitment.

From a steel-mounted ABC logo sign on the front of the gym to transportation to and from the gym (2 yrs in a row), from opening the gym for special hours to free bottles of water and handing out flyers, these guys stopped at nothing to make us feel at home. They truly set the bar HIGH for graciousness and hospitality.

On behalf of The House, naturalguy and Ox, the entire Animal Nation, Universal Nutrition and the newly-initiated fellas from the UK that made their way out to their first ABC on Saturday, I want to express our most sincere and heartfelt thanks.

Can't wait to do it again next year.

Peace, G

Emporium were great hosts and it's appreciated and it's a badass gym to train at. I was blown away by the ABC sign outside, no other gym has done that.

About a 10-15 minute drive from the expo, not too bad.

Just a shame there wasn't anywhere semi-convenient to eat post workout.

Just to x2 what G said really.

If I lived in Birmingham, Emporium is where I'd train, no question.

Everything you need, backed up 100% with a top-notch attitude.
