BIG BACK GRIPS USER PROFILE INTERVIEW: TAMARA HUGHES
Full disclosure: Tammy Hughes has been part of the Big Back Grips story since we first launched in 2007. She has been on our packaging, our website, at our events and in our hearts for everything she did to help a start-up take root. For Tammy is one of the nicest, most generous, most welcoming people we know. And we’ve been providing Big Back Grips to her husband, bodybuilder and trainer David Hughes and his clients since about the same time.
She is also an accomplished fitness competitor, having placed first in the International Natural Bodybuilding Association (INBA) Classic in her native Australia. She manages one of Los Angeles’ most respected gyms. And with David, brings her experience and knowledge to (Big Back Grips dealer!) Get Hughes Nutrition which they own together in Simi Valley, CA. Since Tammy’s also a Big Back user, we asked her to be part of our Big Back Grips User Profile page.
BBG: Of course on of the reasons we’re interviewing you is because we know you’re avid Big Back Grips user. What did you use before BBGs and why did you settle on BBGs? How do they help your workout?
TAMMY: Well, I used to use gloves. Little pink ones. But let me tell people how I even discovered Big Back Grips: You guys wanted to shoot some pictures in the gym that I managed, and you wanted to use me – ME! – on your packaging. And while I was working out with your grips during the photo shoot, I realized my little pink gloves weren’t doing anything to help my workout. Nothing! They were just, well, pink. The first time I did a set of cable rows with the grips, I knew I didn’t care what color they were. They gave me an amazing set and that was that! And Hollywood Gym became your first retail dealer.
