Jim Chambers is the owner of EAV Barbell Club in Atlanta. He’s also the guy who decided to ban police and active duty military from his gym. His reasoning?
“We’ve had an explicitly stated ‘No Cop’ policy since we opened, and we also don’t open membership to active members of the military,” he said.
For Chambers, a lifelong political activist, the sign and policy is a political statement outside a multi-use space which serves as a gym, community gathering spot and meeting place for activists in the metro area.
He says groups who work out there are generally minorities who are uncomfortable with the presence of law enforcement agents.
Which is amusing since, as The Federalist Papers noted, the vast majority of the people shown in photographs on the gym’s Facebook page appear to be as white as the driven snow.
