America’s Response to the Cop Hating Gym Owner


Cop Hating Gym Owner Spoke. But So Did America. Here’s What They Said.

I’m about to show you that the America that you and I love still exists. But first – some context.

Earlier this summer, an anti-American, police and veteran hating gym owner from Atlanta shared with the world why he hates everyone in uniform. He made it crystal clear that anyone in uniform wasn’t welcome in his little communist factory that he calls a gym.

So I called him out in this letter.

In it, I mentioned three gyms we were partnering with to make a statement and to pay tribute to those officers and veterans that he spit upon. These gyms announced they are going to offer 30 days of free training to police and veterans who aren’t currently members.

But something unexpected happened when the letter exploded.

AMERICA happened, to be exact.

Gyms from all over the country reached out letting us know that they were going to match that donation locally and offer 30 days free to police and veterans in their own communities.

Many of them didn’t want the exposure…but below you’ll find a list of some gym owners who allowed us to publicize it.

Letters. Emails. Phone calls. They came in from across the country.

Men and women in uniform… their loved ones… their supporters. Thousands upon thousands of people reached out to tell us how THEY plan on countering that gym owner’s message… with small acts of love and kindness to others.

THIS is our America.


As for my team at The Silent Partner Marketing? Well…we made a big announcement. We’ve partnered with The Whiskey Patriots and have DOUBLED our donation to a million dollars in pledged services to police, veterans and other first responders.

And we’re excited that, as part of it, we’re going to continue to inspire others in partnership with Law Enforcement Today.

We’ve launched a new series called “Behind The Uniforms”. We’ll be highlighting the positive and the difficult stories that our first responders and our veterans have lived. We’ll make sure to share all of those stories on Facebook here as well – so keep following!

Brothers and sisters, America is staring into the face of the enemy right now. And we’ve been horrified to find that, in my cases, that enemy is our neighbor. Our coworker. Our relative.

But today, we stand together. In one unified voice we announce that we will always support those who hold the thin blue line…and those who protect our communities and our country.

This is our country and we WILL fight to defend it.

If any other gyms would like to be a part of this patriotic initiative… feel free to drop us a line through here.

And I’d ask that EVERYONE who stands behind our police, veterans and other first responders SHARE THIS!

Why is it that I never see your types speak out and vehemently denounce police misconduct. it would be such a great boost in the trust in police if cop advocates would disavow bad cops rather than whipping up frenzy over private citizens exercising their right to free speech. Regardless how bad his opinion is.

Les Brooks, apparently you aren’t looking hard enough. We who respect & honor those in uniform are the first to condemn improper actions by rouge LEO’s. They make all police look bad & other LEO’s hate them worse than anyone. They do everything they can to weed out the “John Wayne’s”, as they call them, because their actions reflect negatively on good police.
The Liberal media loves to pounce on the police & people like you fall for their game & promote their agenda by posting ignorant remarks as you have done here. Until you have walked in their shoes, keep your uninformed remarks to yourself. OK?

What exactly do you mean by “your types”?

Because the bad cops are few and far between, unlike anti America and ANTI cop and anti military jerks.

Why is it that liberals like yourself never condemn Antifa and Black Lives Matter for the assaults and ambushes of police officers going on routinely???

Because ligerals lije anything that us anti american

We who serve appreciate kindness and consideration. We too, detest those who engage in misconduct as it makes us all look bad, but you never hear about that, do you?

Well said. I wonder why the name of that gym was not in the story, or did I miss it?

Freedom of Speech does not guarantee freedom from the consequences of your actions. Suck it up, Buttercups!

Quit acting like spoiled children. There will always be people, that for one reason or another, dislike the police. We knew who they were. What amazes me is police now must go about picking fights with the community, attempting to punish them one way or another for not liking the police. Attacking members of the community does absolutely nothing to drive the wedge deeper between the police and the community, and ill-advised action does nothing to close that gap. After all, we want to be recognized as professionals and the adults in the room. Let’s start acting like it.

who’s attacking whom? The story is about people who are reaching out to the police in response to a foolish marketing scheme. you misspoke (“Attacking members of the community does absolutely nothing to drive the wedge deeper between the police and the community…”) ( I think you meant “does nothing but…etc.” otherwise it is the opposite of what you are trying to convey). point is, the wedge is there no matter what we do, so if people want to respond and support us, great. Trust me, leo’s are not spoiled children.

Adversity builds strong people. it also builds a strong nation. Hiding in moms basement does not. I admire all those who take on these jobs, Thank you.

BEing a oeace officer is a tough job. Community suppOrt is important. ThrOughout my career, i fOund Alot of support and criticism when it ws deserved you have to acceot both
