«It’s hard to believe we’ve been doing this event for 12 years now, but we are always happy to provide strength athletes a fun environment to compete in,» said Greg McCoy. «The strength community is an important segment of our member base and we really try to cater to them when we can. Many strength athletes have to train in their garages or build small gyms with their friends because most corporate facilities just don’t have the right equipment, or frankly, flat-out just don’t want strength athletes. Well, we do want them, and we’re happy to say we provide the right equipment and environment to encourage strength training. And S.O.S. 12 is a prime example of how we celebrate strength athletes.»
