Taking a look back #4

The Alamo 180 gym opened for business March 2014.

Offering a ton of services because that’s what you do when you start a small business. It’s like throwing spaghetti at the wall and seeing what sticks. We offered triathlon, running, boot camp (because it was a commonly recognized name for strength training), personal training, indoor cycling, yoga, obstacle course racing.

When the construction was complete and the equipment purchased, we looked upon our gym with pride and love. We didn’t know it then, but we were blinded by passion. It’s a miracle anyone walked in and signed up for our services.

We couldn’t afford to mat the floor. We didn’t even have a rig. Our friend let us borrow his rig for a year until we could afford to buy one (rig not pictured here). We had the minimum equipment necessary to offer a classes up to 10 people.

When we made money, we saved it, and poured it right back into our gym. It was a slow growth process, but it helped knowing a thing or two about endurance 😉 Slowly and surely, our bareboned gym grew.

For those that have been with us from the beginning, you’re our family. For those that have joined any time since the beginning, we love that you’re part of the family. And if you want to join us, come be part of the Alamo 180 family!
