Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Covid-19 has definitely been the biggest struggle for me thus far. It has held up a lot of things in the process of building a gym. It has slowed up the progress immensely.

Please tell us about Strong House Fitness.
