Editor’s note: This is the first in a two-part series about Redemption gym.
The venue has all the makings of a bad Jean-Claude Van Damme movie. Off the beaten path, warehouse building and I’m pretty sure the sidings have been painted over more times than an auctioned police vehicle. Sure, it might lack in outside aesthetic, but clearly that’s not its purpose.
Mrs. Johnson, my second-grade teacher, said it best: “Never judge a book by its cover.” That sentiment never rang more true than at Redemption gym.
