I'll give him this: he's up front about it.

From the little I've learned about owning and operating gyms, it's a pretty tough business and you'd better have something unique that makes you stand out.

stand by for bad jokes about the clean and jerk

Donna I'm sure you're familiar with being the candy in a bait & switch scheme.

Bait? Check.

Gavin's line about selling shit to out-of-shape straight men makes me think that he plays (even if occasionally) for another team.
With the short-cropped hair and fair skin-tone, that would be three quarters of the Membership Requirements of Hammerskoal's gang.
That surname, though, MIGHT pose a certain problem... lol

interesting observations!

obviously this is all a setup for the grudge match powerlifting competition which will occupy Grinder$ pages 30-97

Whoa! Was his granddad THE Gernsback?

No. Not really.

probably not, since his spiritual dad is THE Arnold.

@ Thracecius: It seems that lirv named him after my comic's fictional city - which in turn was indeed originally meant to be a reference to Hugo Gernsback!

Hee hee hee.

Hey if it's free, I'd take him up on it (says the person who never can make themself go to the gym even when they had a membership.)

I need to get significant chunks of plot out of the way before I can devote

ah I'll make some more gag strips about the gym

gyms are funny, where else can you go fart in public from overexertion and get praised for it?
