Psycho Gym was born out of raw necessity. In 2006 Co- Founders Travis Williams and Russ Kimzey were fed up with the big corporate box gyms. They needed something more intense, we needed to get away from people sitting on machines and coming to the gym for social hour. Their workouts are designed to burn an average of 20 calories a minute while making you loose more than the standard 1-2 lbs a week. Kettlebell Training, Heavy Ropes, Suspension Training, Tractor Tires, are just a few of the tools they use to get you crazy results. There are two locations in the Dallas Metroplex.
