Sweet!

Hey can guys like me go in there and not sound the "Lunk Alarm" and train crazy-like??? J/K you know us bodybuilder types!

Seriously though, that's awesome because I never got to go the one in my home state of TX. I would love to be able to check that out when I get back in town later this year. Congrats and best of luck with all the plans.

Josh,

Do you plan to put in (or do you have) any skylights?...

Interesting question Scott. I would think that a skylight would heat up the gym in the summer. Also, can you imagine if the sun was shining in your eyes while trying to get that 21st rep of a widow?

sidenote <- thats awesome

LOL - OOoohh - lookee at the airplane! ...

I'm asking for the purposes of photoshoots, actually. (Question a photog. asked me who would like to do some shoots there.)

You are right, though, when I'm doing a widowmaker, making sure I don't have the sun in my eyes or, heaven forbid, some sweat go in my eye, is very important. LOL (Once, a little snot dribbled down under my nose and I was so embarrassed I just left for the day...)

There is a gym here in Tucson with a horrid skylight - right over the BB bench area - nearly impossible to see to rack the bar at the wrong time of the day. I've seen others that work just fine and seem to allow light, but little heat inside. These are cool: http://www.consumerenergycenter.org/...ws_future.html
