LAKELAND, Fla. — Tom Haggenmiller, owner of Power Works Gym in Perham, set his dights on the Florida dead lift record for over a year.


Haggenmiller selected the oldest and toughest gym to train at in the sunshine state, All American Gym in Lakeland, Fla.

"I knew it was sure to be a heavy duty gym because the sign on the door said, 'If you didn't come to sweat, go home.'" Haggenmiller said.

All American Gym in central Florida has no air conditioning.
