Gyms were some of the hardest-hit businesses during the height of the pandemic, and staying afloat for many was not easy. Through building a strong, tight-knit, and supportive community, John Chambliss managed to see his gym, 48 STR8, through the worst of it. In fact, the brand has come out with its own supplement line, thanks to the time John had to slow down and get things off the ground. Along with owning the 48 STR8 gym, supplement, and nutrition brand, John is also a firefighter and all-around muscle man. In this episode, John talks about how he got into training and shares his approach to building relationships with his clients. While people may come into the gym as strangers, they leave as friends, and this sets 48 STR8 apart from the rest. We talk about the pivots they made during the pandemic and the changes they have kept since. Our conversation also touches on some of the developments and challenges with the supplements arm of the brand, how to support 48 STR8, and when we can expect professional athletes and competitors to start using their products. Tune in to hear it all!
