I do weightlifting and I have girlfriend who you wouldn't believe how big and strong she is.
Those small privately owned gyms can easily be fronts for gang activity, and I seen that before.
So its the venetian or nothing.
fact : anabolic steroid sales need as much gang protection for the business as any other drug and prostitution sales ring.
And all of it is at small, sole proprietorship gyms that probably don't even have a license to operate.
The gang could be used for anything else as well.
so f)uck him !
