Man, Nashville really does have boutique everything these days.

I mean, why would anybody join some weak-sounding gym like the Young Men's Christian Academy or the French Riviera Spa when, for only $399/Mo, you can get ripped from the inside out with strong-minded survivalist trainers at Nashville's Vengeance Strength Kvlt? (That's pronounced "Vengeance Strength Cult" for all you weak people who get rubber-legged at the thought of a little animal sacrifice and can't read ancient Norse).

From the Nashville Scene:

"This is probably not the gym for you," the gym's website states. "Our ideology is simple: Weakness is a sickness which rapidly degenerates the quality of body and mind. The dominant fitness culture is selling you a shallow concept of exercise, keeping you weak and misinformed. Taking the first step towards the eradication of this cancer is the most important thing which you may ever do. It means taking up the ritual of proper training. It means purging the willfully weak people out of your life. It means the burning away of everything and everyone which does not benefit you. Therefore, we at Vengeance, battle weakness here and at home, pledging to help you do the same."

But what about crushing your enemies? Seeing them driven before you? Or hearing the lamentations of their women? Do you suppose that requires a premium membership?

The Scene also published screenshots of the Kvlt's founder Sky Lemyng wearing t-shirts connecting him to Operation Werewolf, a collective that self-describes as, "equal parts fight club, strength regimen, motorcycle club and esoteric order." It was founded by Hate-Yoda Paul Waggener who also leads a "creepy white-power wolf cult" called The Wolves of Vineland.

Prayers and protests are ongoing.
