 Tongue a lot of the places where these guys used to train are gone now replaced by others who either weathered the storm or came along at the right time. gone are the olympic fitness center on 19th st, phoenix fitness, the body factory at vantage point,fitness america whitehall. three gold's gyms, 2 la fitness's,a coluceum gym are still in the area.
