    That is true. It's a weird situation, because a lot of clubs are also operating as businesses, which makes athletes customers. Businesses don't really have as much "rights" to customers. It's not like we're in the NFL and people are under contract.

    Y'all have to remember it isn't Juan and Sean duking it out, it's their acolytes doing so on IG. There was some bad blood when Juan opened up shop 35 fucking miles away which is basically an hr in LA time. But once a handful of athletes start leaving, it creates a domino effect. Especially when it's their best lifters and not just Joe Blows like Marshall and I (though we are records holders and champions ). It's not like distance is something most lifters would bother with unless they live dead in the middle between the gyms. Nobody from LA is gonna drive all the way to Juan's or Vice versa.

    Juan DMing a youth athlete is pretty sketch. I do wonder if he is even knowledgeable about the Safesport rules. He should be but who knows.

    I do wonder what is the deal between Barbells4Boobs and what they are probably giving their lifters as stipend. I'm ok if they are in a sense, brand ambassadors because they are probably pulling in donations by representing B4B. So long of course, it's a small portion of funds.

    in 2016, their salaries were 786k up from 714 the yr prior. 199k was 2 board member salaries. Their total revenue was 2.3million.

    So maybe we'll see what they put out next year. Maybe. IF.

    Hell, even obviously gym hopping goes on in gymnastics (look up Gabrielle Douglass). I've known some coaches and clubs who try to have gymnast families or coach sign non compete contracts in case they leave and none of it will ever stand. They can and will bitch and moan about it though. If it was an IP thing with coaches, sure.

    seems like something Mash would do... 'you can't go and weightlift at any other club, because you received my Proprietary Coaching Knowledge, and thus are not allowed to practice my techniques anywhere else.'
