An Atlanta gym has come under fire for it's policy to not allow police officers or active military service members in the gym.

EAV Barbell Club owner Jim Chambers stated, "We've had an explicitly stated 'No Cop' policy since we opened, and we also don't open membership to active members of the military."

Chambers' apparent reasoning for the policy is that many of the patrons of the gym are minorities and the presence of police officers might make people uncomfortable.

Chambers also stated, "We wanted one space that was just a little different. It’s not an aggressive, hetero-jock space that’s dominated by cops and soldiers."

He added, "And we don’t want to make police stronger so that they can hurt people more efficiently."

The gym's policy made headlines recently over a sign that was placed on the front door of the business, stating, "No F----- Cops."

Despite the uproar, Chambers appears committed to his gym's "no cops" policy.
