I am starting to recruit people to get a chapter rolling here at Ft Campbell, and Middle TN. I notice some intrest for people in the Middle TN area. Would like to know if there are any Ft Campbell Soldiers out there interested.
I know many of the Ft Campbell Soldiers are coming home, and base gyms are slow, but start looking for flyers with my contact info.
If you are interested, please PM me here or post your interest on the Boards over at the FORVM.
If there is not enough interest in the Middle TN area, I will simply do what I can to coordinate for a FT Campbell chapter by itself.

From the Eyes of B Con... (The National ABC Coverage at Metro Fitness in Columbus)
Upon walking into Metro Fitness, the atmosphere is definitely something worthy of admiration. At my current gym, I am the only member below 30 and looking to compete. In fact, the only thing at my gym that matches the level of greatness that was echoed through the halls of Metro, is the copy of Flex magazine that I brought in for others to read. Seriously, the environment alone was well worth it. Honestly, I was beat from working all day at the Cage and didn't know how great of a session I would be able to get. But that was all forgotten when I just stepped inside and saw how eager everyone was to just go after it.
What made the atmosphere that great? At the drop of a hat there were pros, amateurs, and others just busting their ass to progress and be better than they were yesterday. If you had a question or were unsure about something, you just walked up and asked someone there. To see these guys in real life and outside a magazine pictorial made it something special. What was really good, is how down to earth everyone was. They were all there for the same reasons. One common bond... the iron.
During the ABC, the doors are only opened at Metro for the Forvm members, the pros, those wearing the black Animal Ts... it really couldn't get more exclusive. Whatever you wanted to train, you could just jump in with someone training the same thing. The brotherhood was very helpful and motivating in itself.
After taking the moment in, I went to work and hit up back with Big C. It was so damn hot in that place I really thought at times I was going to pass out. I drank a whole gallon of water in there and was dying. Besides the heat, it was great using a lot of machines I don't have the privilege to use. For instance, not only did I get to use a wicked hammer strength machine to focus on some rows, but I also got a tip from Ox in the process who we worked in with for that brief set.
I saw everything from Wrath having insane vascularity in his arms after a brief warm up, to Vinny hitting some deep squats, to Big Ant running my two friends through the ringer on the leg press. Even saw G destroying some delts and Hola blasting the guns. It was a great time for all. They were going around taking photos and filming some as well. Really upped the ante. To see all the black shirts and other dedicated Forvm members really helped you appreciate the moment--because at that time everyone was working to progress and working together. Taking in this sight was wonderful and really emphasized what the ABCs are all about.
After solid workouts all around, everyone split to get some food. I ended up at Max and Ermas with everyone for some laughs, stories, jokes, and some good food. I really don't think it could have gotten any better.
To me the ABCs have always been about brotherhood and finding that common bond between like minded individuals. I couldn't think of a better way to depict that than this past weekend in Columbus. Thanks to everyone who made it possible.
