Local Gym Caters to Kimbo Wannabes



There you have it: a gym strictly for the aspiring mixed martial arts star. The Fighter's Edge on University Drive in Lauderhill trains its members to kick ass, Kimbo-style. Or at least before Kimbo got his own ass kicked.

Seems a rather bold venture, though, in this economy. This month the Sporting Goods Manufacturers Association just released research findings (available to members only, it appears) that show Americans are buying more dumbbells during a period when virtually every other variety of fitness equipment -- and presumably, gym memberships -- are not being purchased.
