We want to fuel a revolution in fitness that advocates the pursuit of function, not form — that measures performance, not anatomy. We want rings and bumper plates in our gyms, not machines. We believe that where you train is less important than how you train and that who you train with matters more than what gear you have. We know this can be done in little boxes and we’ve proven that the garage is as good an environment as any for Forging Elite Fitness®.

The term "Spindle City" originated in the mid 1900's when Gastonia, NC was a thriving textile manufacturing town. Many of the mills are still standing and can still be found around the Gaston County Area.
The Spindle itself, is defined as a rotating axes in which fibers are held and released. Just like a textile spindle our bodies contain muscle spindles. Muscle spindles are sensory receptors that are located in the muscle. Their job is to detect changes in muscle length and the speed of change in muscle length. They are the core for muscle change and growth, and are active with all exercises.
