"Bottom line, I love it when people use their passion to create something they love and it’s clear that’s what the owners of Nerdstrong have done."

"Andrew Deutsch, the founder of Nerdstrong, had zero intention of ever starting his own gym. His workouts began at home, in his own garage. Andrew’s friend David soon joined him and then more of their friends joined them. David ran a Dungeons & Dragons game that Andrew played in, which inspired them to create themed workouts."

Many could relate to this — many like Andrew Deutsch."
