Hi, I'm Michael Okoye, a certified personal trainer, group fitness instructor, and part-time superhero based in Chicago. I am also the creator of Gym Hero. Gym Hero was born from one simple idea: design limited edition high-quality items that I would wear myself. What started as an outlet for my passion for fitness and fashion (especially being comfortable while working out/being in general life) has become much more than the idea of simply selling some shirts.

How would you rate Gym Hero Gear?
About the only good thing to say is they have a good selection. The service is spotty at best. The first time I went in the guy at the counter was helpful, friendly, and knowledgeable. I went in a few months later to price a new pistol and when I was finally able to get the mall ninja behind the counter to help me out he acted like I was wasting his time (check the attitude at the door dude!). After I tried to talk him down on the price, which was WAY higher than the competitors, he tried to give me a lecture on capitalism. I had to remind him how capitalism actually works and drove a mile up the road to Backstage Pawn and got the gun for a good price from a guy who actually wanted to help his customers. Save yourself some time, money, and frustration and go ANYWHERE else!
