Best Gyms In America | Montanari Brothers Powerhouse Gymby John Meadows on July 24, 2019
In today’s episode of the best gyms in America we go to the famous Montanari Brothers Powerhouse gym in the wonderful state of Connecticut.
The gym is operated by the four Montanari Bros.; Richie, Jerry, Dino and Darin. Richie Montanari, an avid powerlifter at the time, started East Coast Power Gym in 1984 and after a few years of training in cramped quarters, decided that a bigger place with more equipment and room to train was needed. Opening the first Gold’s Gym in the state of Connecticut in 1987 was the result. Since then, the gym has been owned and operated by the Montanari Bros. and regarded as one of the best gyms both nationwide and throughout the world. The gym was opened in 1987 as a place that anyone interested in self-improvement could call home. Today, bodybuilders, powerlifters, athletes, men, women, old, young, big, small, blue-collar and white collar all come together to create the family atmosphere you find at this gym. In 2012, not wanting to commit to the recently developed “fitness club” ideals of corporate Gold’s Gym, the decision was made to franchise under Powerhouse Gym as a way to preserve and further the integrity of the gym. It’s great to be able to say that everything else has remained the same.
