After a storied career, first playing with Peyton Manning at the University of Tennessee and then as Captain of its National Championship team, Will Bartholomew suffered what would become a career ending injury during a non-contact drill with the Denver Broncos. He came home to rehab with aspirations of making it back to the league but had no place to truly train. No place that would allow him to recover and optimize his performance. At that time, most places were akin to a traditional box gym that had no appetite for training at the level of an elite athlete let alone any type of guided group fitness opportunities. That’s when he realized, there was no place to train like he did at a Division 1 school, with the best coaches, equipment, workout programs and community.
