Big Iron Gym (BIG) is owned by Rick Hussey and is the Midwest's premier strength training facility. It is located in Omaha, Nebraska. BIG prides itself on catering to strength athletes of all kinds: Powerlifters, Strongman competitors, Olympic lifters, bodybuilders, MMA fighters, and high school and college athletes all come to Big Iron to train in their unique atmosphere that is centered around learning techniques and increasing strength. With access to the gym's strength-specific equipment and leading strength coach Rick Hussey, this is the place to be for those interested in strength sports.

I've been following BIG's YouTube videos for quite a while now and I think that they're a really cool group.
