If you’re a gym head who lives in New York and you’ve never heard of Dogpound Gym, then you must be living under a rock. Founder and CEO of Dogpound Gym, Kirk Myers, has a truly remarkable story of success and redemption. A younger version of Myers weighed 300 pounds, and the emotional distress he suffered as a result of an incapability to keep up physically with his peers caused him to turn to junk food for comfort. A combination of bad eating habits and an overweight frame almost cost him his life at 21, where he was found to have an enlarged heart. Fast forward a decade later and 125 pounds lighter, and Myers has trained the likes of Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Adam Levine, and High Jackman as well as a host of Victoria Secret models.
