The Ohio Valley region of eastern Ohio is known as the rust belt due to the prevalence of heavy industry - steel mills, coal mines, and power plants. In the early 1900s immigrants flocked to the valley to build a better life for their families, and although much of the industry has since moved on, the characteristics of the people have endured. Strong. Rugged. Straight forward. Hard working. OSG founders Cory G and Coach Myers were born in the Ohio Valley and raised in the blue collar gyms that are scattered thru out the area. We wanted to pay homage to these REAL gyms and the hard working individuals that train in them. Strong. Ohio Valley Strong.
