2011 M Awards: Favorite Workout Facility

The term ‘the whole nine yards’ came from WWII fighter pilots in the South Pacific. When arming their airplanes on the ground, the .50 caliber machine gun ammo belts measured exactly 27 feet, before being loaded into the fuselage. If the pilots fired all their ammo at a target, it got ‘the whole nine yards.’ If these pilots were able to visit the YMCA in Memphis, they would most assuredly say that it is ‘the whole nine yards’ of a workout facility.
