NBA Player Rudy Gay Opening Basketball-Focused Training Gym In Baltimore

San Antonio Spurs forward and Baltimore native Rudy Gay will be opening a new gym focused on basketball training in his hometown as part of a partnership with fitness company PickUp USA.

The Pasadena, California-headquartered firm operates franchised gyms in six states where players can use workout equipment and courts to hone their game. Gay signed a deal to open two franchises. The second will be in Florida, where he owns a home.

"It's a chance for me to have something in my name in the city where I was raised," Gay said in a statement. He also noted the extracurricular utility of his planned gym: "Basketball keeps kids engaged. It's a good way to keep them off the street."

Before his NBA career and college stardom at UConn, Gay was a standout for Archbishop Spalding in Severn and Eastern Technical High School in Essex.
