Our November Customer Spotlight shines on a longtime customer and friend of TJM Promos. Chris Janek helped the University of Wisconsin win two Rose Bowl games, then went on to an eight-year professional career in the Arena Football League. When the league folded, Janek decided to open a gym in his hometown of Granite City, Illinois.

“I opened Tank’s Training Facility in 2009.  We are the premier strength and conditioning facility in the Metro East area,” he said. “My nickname since college has been Tank, so I found this a very fitting name for my business.”

The business is open to people of all fitness levels. “We train everyone from ages 8 to 82,” he said. “Even though we focus on the athletes and powerlifters, we also train people in general fitness, and people who just want to exercise.”

Janek originally bought custom t-shirts from a different supplier. Not quite satisfied, he found us through social media about seven years ago.

“I decided to try one order out. After that, it was game over,” he said. “I was shopping from a local company previously from you guys. But after I saw the quality and price (from TJM), I don’t shop anywhere else.”

Over the years, we’ve created multiple designs for Tank’s Training Facility.

“I have purchased many different designs for my business logo. We usually give them away as a promotion or sell them. We have also had a few benefits at the facility, such as Deadlift and Donuts where we gave every competitor a free shirt,” Janek said. “Everyone at the facility loves wearing the T-shirt designs.”

He praised TJM’s products and customer service.

“Everyone loves the shirt and quality. We have never had any issue,” he said. “I have always been able to get ahold of someone if I needed something. And the delivery and price has always been great."

We appreciate your support and continued business, Chris. We look forward to serving the needs of Tank’s Training Facility for many years to come.
