In October 1994, Daniel Lugo, an ex-con and bodybuilder, is hired by Sun Gym owner John Mese as a manager. Under Lugo, gym membership is increased by 300% within six weeks. Lugo befriends trainer and bodybuilder Adrian Doorbal, rendered impotent from steroids. Lugo envies the earnings and lifestyle of Victor Kershaw, a member he begins to train. Motivational speaker Jonny Wu inspires him to be a “do-er,” and Lugo plans to extort Kershaw for his assets through kidnapping and torture. Lugo recruits Doorbal and Paul Doyle, another ex-con and born again-Christian struggling with drug use. Doyle eventually joins the team, after being kicked out of his halfway house.

The “Sun Gym gang” finally kidnap Kershaw after several attempts, taking him to a small warehouse. Although disguised, Kershaw identifies Lugo, otherwise the scheme goes as planned: Kershaw makes calls, under duress, to provide false explanations for his disappearance, gets his family to move out of state, and signs documents that transfer his assets to Lugo. John Mese is even bribed to notarize documents in Kershaw’s absence. The gang is able to collect Kershaw’s money and assets, but realize releasing him would be a bad idea. Lugo concocts a plan to kill Kershaw by forcing him to drink liquor and crash his BMW, making it appear like a drunk driving accident. He survives the crash, so they burn the car with him in it. Kershaw escapes the blazing vehicle, so the gang runs over his body, twice, and leaves him to die. However, Kershaw survives and is hospitalized.
