We have been hearing for some months now about the Big Scary Gym in Henderson, NV, largely due to former multi-sport fighter and current day trainer Dewey Cooper.
Cooper was as active as one can be during his fighting days, as he competed in boxing, kickboxing, and mixed martial arts over the years. Some of Cooper’s fighting highlights included winning the WKC heavyweight and WKF cruiserweight titles, and becoming a fixture on the popular K-1 circuit.
Cooper’s transition into being a trainer has seemed to come quite naturally, and he has a lot of spirit and vigor that he brings when guiding his pupils in the gym.
We swung by the Big Scary Gym this week to get in touch with Cooper, who was training UFC star Kevin Lee (18-6, 11 KO’s) and PFL (Professional Fighters League) standout Bubba Jenkins (16-4, 10 KO’s), amongst several others.
The gym is open 24 hours a day and suits all styles of training, including weight training, weight loss, powerlifting, strength training, boxing, Muay Thai, Mixed Martial Arts, and Jiu Jitsu.
