In this episode, Jim joins Leigh and Hossein to discuss creating a Lifestyle Club, his lessons learned in life and the best place to get a cheesesteak in Philly. Presented by iClubs and Motionsoft
Ep 11: David Von Storch
David Von Storch's story of success began when a mysterious buyer made an offer he couldn't refuse on his first business: a nightclub in Washington, D.C.

In this episode of "Gym Class: Heroes of Fitness," Von Storch joins Hossein and Leigh to discuss operating a club with a city vibe, the differences between running a restaurant and a gym, and how he plans to expand his empire. Presented by iClubs and Motionsoft
