[quote=wernerstrength]17 deadlifters with a 700+ pull at Strong Gym. Is this accurate?[/quote] It is accurate sir. We have an excellent crew of elite-level lifters. But the reality is, that most the top guys would be the top guys regardless of where they train. If the Lilliebridges moved to any of the gyms on the list, would that gym then be the favorite? I would hope not - because the gym had nothing to do with making them who they are. I think the thing that sets us apart is that we have a 15,000sq foot dedicated strength facility in unbelievably nice retail space, and have built our gym to 900 members, including 65 who deadlift over 500lbs. We also have 30 or 40 women who deadlift over 300 here, which is pretty impressive as well considering that the vast majority of them are soccer moms. As for the guys who pull over 700, we have guys like Justin Winder, Jeremy Frey, Jared Dale, Casey Sumner, Gary Grissinger, Matt Reynolds, Bob Dale, Nick Leadbetter, Billy Hawk, Zach Condo, Clint Lowe, Jonny Gold, etc - those are just off the top of my head, but we have a handful more on the PR boards up at the gym. :-) We are very humbled about what we've accomplished at STRONG and honored to be on this list, regardless of how the voting turns out.

Picking one is next to impossible. Hopefully the lifters realize how lucky they are to have facilities such as these
