New Morgantown Gym Trains Customers to be Modern Day Vikings

Posted: Updated:

 A new gym in Morgantown trains its customers as “modern day vikings.”

Viking Performance Training on Greenbag Road trains with Olympic weight lifting equipment, and the largest strong man gear collection in the area.

Owner Jerry Handley spent the last ten years on WVU’s strength and conditioning staff.

"Everything there was sports specific, training not only for the sport but with the individual athletes. It's taking that same individual attention and basically just hitting individual details, different body types, different injury histories, training histories, and making each training program unique," said Handley.

The gym offers a number of different packages.

 The gym hosted it's very first Strong Man Competition on Saturday afternoon.

Different events and challenges were held for both men and women to test their strength and physical capabilities.

Friends and family members were on hand to support competitors and cheered them on from start to finish.
