The Lock-Up was opened in 2002 by Don Broaddus, a law enforcement officer, and was strictly for law enforcement personnel when it first opened. After only about a year, Broaddus opened it up for membership to the general public as well.
John Mollet took over as the new owner of The Lock-Up Gym in 2016. Since taking over The Lock-Up, Mollet has expanded numerous times and has built a world-class workout facility with national recognition within the fitness industry.
The facility went from 500 sq ft to now offering over 22,000 square feet of fitness paradise. Today the gym has members that include world record-holding weight lifters and professional bodybuilders.
John Mollet is personal friends with the likes of C.T. Fletcher (media personality, actor, personal trainer, former powerlifter, bodybuilder, three-time World Bench Press Champion, and three-time World Strict Curl Champion), and Arnold Schwarzenegger (no further explanation needed!).
The Lock-Up Gym was even featured on the popular television show, My 600-lb Life, with a semi-local contestant being filmed working out at The Lock-Up.
