Hate seeing the old school places close, while Planet Fitness popsup everywhere.
(Even though the one in my town just shut down).

Ed Ryan's isn't closed, worked out there today.  As a matter of fact that's my huge self in the background in that picture.  Ed Ryan's is a very old school gym, it's where Ron Tueful trained for the America in the 70's, and nothing has changed since then.  Frank Mcgrath and Evan Centopani filmed a couple of their latest videos there, and were both good guys.  If you're looking for an old school place to train with no hassles, check the place out.  We could use some new blood in the gym.  If you're looking for a state of the art gym, this place may not be for you, however if you want the feeling of training with your buddy's in a basement hole in the wall gym , drop by
