“First time at this location. The downtown scenery is beautiful. The last time I really spent time downtown was when the grand ave mall was actually a mall and radio doctors were still on 3rd and wells! So that was a long time ago lol. So it feels good to have a healthy reason to come downtown again. Some of the shower stalls need some work but other than that I will definitely make this location a regular stop.” – Ryck G.

It began early in the morning. In a garage, it all began.

Michael flourished, immediately developing an interest in health and well-being science.
