Britain London Olympics 2012 Home Away
A selection of weights are seen in the University of East London's new sports facility weight room on the university's campus in London Thursday, Feb. 9, 2012. A sparkling 21 million-pound ($33.2 million) gym at the University of East London that will be used by the U.S. Olympic team during the London games is just about complete. In a few weeks, it will be ready for everyone from stars like swimming's Michael Phelps and basketball's Kobe Bryant to U.S. athletes who are still relatively unknown, offering them privacy to lift, stretch, tune and scrimmage.

This Georgia man displayed a sign that bans cops and military members from his gym


An Atlanta gym owner is under fire after he put up a sign banning police officers and military members from working out at his facility. Jim Chambers, owner of EAV barbell, said that he put up the sign that said police officers and active military members were not allowed to enter the gym because the majority of the gym members are minorities.

"Do whatever the f--- you want, correctly, except crossfit cultism. No f-----g cops," the sign reads.

Chambers told WXIA-TV that people who work out at his gym are generally uncomfortable with law enforcement. Chambers said that he's taken the sign down due to its vulgarity, but plans on replacing it with a clean version. The Atlanta Police Department said his gym rules will not stop them from responding to an emergency at the gym.

Some people are upset that Chambers is banning law enforcement from using his gym.
