Strongside currently offers physical exercise and nutrition coaching to Woodstock and is soon to expand to a new gym in Roswell. Owner Mitchel Black signed a 10-year lease for a 6,100-square-foot space, at 408 S Atlanta Street Suite 120, for the new gym. Black, who founded Strongside in 2013, told What Now Atlanta that he estimates that the opening will either be January or February of 2021.
Programs offered at Strongside include high-intensity workouts, yoga, and also classes specifically designed for those ages 55 and above. Black said that the exercises are very “functional” and “foundational” with the purpose of “preserving your quality of life for a longer period of time.”
Strongside differs from big-box gyms in how at larger gyms, what “you typically get is the same thing every day.” At Strongside, its room configuration and training changes almost every single day. If guests feel like, “How do I get started? What am I even supposed to do?” Black says, “We got you.”
Strongside is also expected to eventually open at an unknown time at The Mill on Etowah in Canton, at 225 Reformation Parkway. The Mill on Etowah is an adaptive re-use project that is converting a former denim factory into a mixed-use development with restaurants, retailers, and office and event space.
