Now that spring is in the drivers’ seat and swimsuit season is in sight, let’s have a look at a few of the places where residents of the Atlanta high-rise condos known as the Atlantic get their workout.
No Farther than Peachtree
Orangetheory, off Peachtree Street between 8th and 10th streets, offers a total-body workout combining science, coaching, and technology for maximum results.

Rowing, cardio, and strength training are orchestrated to achieve these ends. The reason behind building rowing into the routine is one you might find interesting. Rowing activates 85% of the body’s muscles, and so it serves as a powerful integrator of the more specific muscle-group resistance exercises, while at the same time being a demanding cardio workout in its own right.
Even closer to the center of Midtown, Lion’s Den Fitness, at 9th and Peachtree, puts an emphasis on personal training. Accredited personal trainers create customized training plans and lead a series of before and after-work classes that, over a week, work the body from head to toe.

The capacity of this method to produce maximum results in a focused and feasible amount of time brings a lot of attention to Blast Midtown, on 6th Street NE. Covered, validated parking make Blast an easy trip, even for people beyond walking and biking distance.

Facilities for metabolic profiling complete the assets that Blast Midtown puts on the side of their clients. Using a 45-minute assessment of three vital measurements – anaerobic threshold (AT), VO2 max, and resting metabolic rate (RMR) – the Blast team can formulate a fitness blueprint that personalizes the kind, the frequency, and the intensity of workout that works best for you.
