Growing up Gronkowski
About The Gronkowski Family:
It’s no Smith or Jones or Thompson. By it self, though, Gronkowski won’t command anyone’s attention aside from being tough to spell. But the guys who wear it on the backs of their jerseys play like you imagine a Gronkowski would. When you watch them buzz around an 80,000-seat stadium, they’re the same fun-loving, roughneck hellions who lumped up each other in whatever new game their imaginations could concoct. As they got older, they spent more time in the basement pumping iron on equipment that puts your gym to shame. Gordy Gronkowski is the founder of G&G Fitness, one of the country’s biggest fitness equipment retailers.
With the way the Gronkowskis approach the game they’re not only building careers, but also a brand that’s popular amongst fans, GronkNation.
