A former Mountaineer football player is opening a new gym in Nutter Fort that's designed to get children and teenagers into tip-top shape.
Wesley Brown Sr. made a name for himself playing football at WVU and Fairmont State, but now he's hoping to tackle a number of issues in children's health. His new gym called Gorilla Strength and Fitness opened this weekend. It has several programs that are geared toward helping children stay healthy and active while also training young athletes in the classroom and the weight room.
"It's a family atmosphere. That's why I push so hard. I push them extremely hard because if they were my kid I would want that. If I'm going to come here and I'm going to pay money for a service I want an elite service. I'm not going to cut any corners and I'm not going to pull any punches. Yes, it's going to be hard at times. Yes, it's going to be demanding at times, but that's life," said Brown.
The gym will also have services for professional athletes and college athletes. It will also offer programs for people of all ages who simply want to get in shape.
