It’s a gym and training center and it’s one of a kind.
When Matthias McKinnon’s professional football dreams took a turn, he decided to fuel his love for the game into a business venture.

“Each year as life got tough, I would stay with the plan. That’s why, I-Grind 365 stuck with me to stay on this consistent path,” McKinnon said.

McKinnon made a plan to create a gym where people could come in and feel as if they were working out right at home.

From endless equipment to a team of expert trainers, McKinnon says this gym has quickly become a go-to spot for fitness enthusiasts in the community.

“I get people all the time that don’t do sports that just want to improve their life,” McKinnon added.

McKinnon wanted to create a gym where inner-city youth could come in to train athletically to hopefully make their dreams come true. That mission has been a successful one, according to McKinnon. He says, business is booming.

McKinnon says he openly welcomes more members to join.
