In the city of Las Vegas, where dedication knows no bounds, The Dragon’s Lair Gym proudly stands as a haven for those who aspire to reach the pinnacle of strength and vitality. As the fitness world eagerly anticipates the grand event of Mr. Olympia 2023, we’re honored to share our story and the remarkable journey of our athletes who strive to be the best in the world.
A Legacy of Champions: The Birth of Dragon’s Lair Gym
The Dragon’s Lair Gym traces its roots back to Boca Raton, Florida, where it was initially established as a private training facility for the legendary 7-time 212 lb Mr. Olympia, Flex Lewis. Over the years, our gym has undergone many transformations, and our journey has been nothing short of extraordinary. Flex Lewis envisioned creating an atmosphere of excellence in a new city, Las Vegas, with a unique twist—welcoming a limited number of members to foster a close-knit community.
Flex Lewis himself serves as an epitome of dedication and hard work. He conquered the 212 lb Mr. Olympia title seven times, stepping away from that class on top and on his terms. His journey is a testament to the power of unwavering commitment and the belief that with dedication, one can achieve the unimaginable. Flex’s motto, “BELIEVE TO ACHIEVE” and “LEAVE NO STONE UNTURNED,” serves as an inspiration to all.
