The Tampa Tribune reports that Hector's-Elisa's Health Club in West Tampa is closing. The gym is owned by Hector Morales and his wife Elisa. Hulk Hogan has credited it with building his physique as Morales took an out of shape Hogan (who was a teenager at the time) and taught him to lift weight and build his soon-to-be 24-inch pythons.
He closed the gym after a developer made a significant offer.
Morales said of Hogan: "He was so shy back then. But as he got bigger, he came out of his shell and got confident."
