I found the group of strongmen and powerlifters I train with by contacting local training facilities. I finally got in touch with a gym about a half hour away who then hooked me up with a guy in my town, who knew the guy who owns the gym I now go to. They are out there, just network and surely you will find a good group with a nice setup. Especially being so close to a large city like you are.
ohh your dating my ex? cool. I'm eating a sandwich, do you want those left overs too?
