Join the club: Cherry Point weight lifters have goals to achieve in the gym

Signs for the Devil Dog Bench Press Club hang inside the Devil Dog Gym and list the names of club members who have reached one of the four weight classes as of March 6. “We see people in here every day lifting their backs and feet up trying to get these weights up,” said Gil George, the fitness center manager for Devil Dog Gym. “There are two things wrong with poor form; one it’s not safe, and two it’s not proper technique. When we started this it was decided to do this by the book.”
