Posted by:

As current and past clients can attest, I am constantly upgrading the personal training studio here in Ballantyne (Charlotte NC). I do so throughout the year but even more so on Black Friday. Online retailers offer such great discounts on gym equipment it would be dumb not to take advantage.

Black Friday is just a ...

Safety Squat Bar Coming In Tomorrow!

Posted by:

Another nice upgrade is coming to Taylor Carpenter’s Personal Training studio tomorrow. A Safety Squat Bar from Black Widow Training Gear has been purchased. I’ve become a fan of a lot of his heavy duty welded gym equipment and always excited to add more. Constantly adding a unique blend of equipment at the studio.

The Safety Squat Bar is probably the favorite speciality bar for most advanced lifters. The greatest benefit here may be this bar is incredibly easy on your shoulders. Whether you ...
