Men, I’ve got a great one lined up for you today with a man who I was just recently introduced to. In the last several weeks, his business has been forcefully shut down, he and his business partner have been arrested, and they’re now facing a $15,000/day fine for operating their legitimate and licensed gym in New Jersey.
Look, I’m not asking you to agree with the premise of Ian Smith’s current situation and the fight he’s been thrust into (although I think many of you will) but I would have you consider the validity of the fight he’s engaged in, what it means to be a man of conviction, standing up to the government, and putting it all on the line for something you believe in.
“You can’t stay shut down forever. The world doesn’t work like that. There’s not a pause button on the global economy.” Tweet That— Ian Smith
As I mentioned earlier, my guest today is Ian Smith. He is the co-owner and founder of Atilis Gym in New Jersey.
He’s recently been thrust into the national limelight and has been featured on Tucker Carlson, CNN’s Chris Cuomo, and Charlie Kirk for defying local business restrictions and refusing to close his gym.
This isn’t a man who set out to defy the government, piss people off, or be reckless with people’s health and lives but he is a man who is willing to stand by what he believes in the face of threats of imprisonment and astronomical fines for what he believes to be unconstitutional infringements.
Gent’s, you’re really going to enjoy this one and I, personally, was extremely impressed with Ian’s knowledge, his thoughtfulness, and, most importantly, his willingness to take a strong stand for what he believes in.
“We’re not bad guys. We just want to work.” Tweet That— Ian Smith
