Back in 2014, I found CrossFit after recovering from an injury and I was looking for a fitness routine that best mimicked my job as a firefighter. After volunteering at Regionals and Games on the medical staff that same year my love for the camaraderie and community planted the seed to start Savage Barbell. Savage was a common phrase yelled at one another throughout my gym, so the name of our company was a no brainer. When I look back on those times, looking forward to seeing your friends early in the morning… looking at the white to confirm the morning classes were kicking the butts of the afternoon class was a staple at my gym. Thinking that none of that is going on right now just breaks my heart.
Savage Barbell is a family-owned and run business. Helping others and those in need is how we live our lives, myself as a firefighter, my wife as a teacher and with our oldest daughter following in her mother’s footsteps. So how can we help our local gyms bridge the financial gap to better times? We have come up with the Stay Savage Fund.
My hope is that Savage Barbell can help, in some way, to ensure that our local gyms will be there with open doors after we as a society pull through this pandemic. I'm not the kind of guy to sit on the sidelines and cheer… I want to get my hands dirty and be there right beside you. If there is ANYTHING that we can do to help your gym… tell us your ideas. I know that I do not have all the answers. There are people out there that might see things through a different lens and have great ideas but lack the vehicle to make it happen… no matter how big or small your idea, please reach out to us.
We have to start somewhere so let's start here and NOW!
