QUEENSBURY — Three local fitness and health experts have teamed up to transform The GYM and the experience for its members.
The Gym, transforming the 518, reopened Dec. 18 after moving, and it will now have a strength and conditioning coach and a physical therapist on site, as well as the original owner and fitness trainer, Ryan Holderman, 33, who has run the fitness facility for over three years.
Formerly located at the Midtown Shopping Plaza in South Glens Falls, The Gym is now located in The Queensbury Plaza on Glen Street in between the Rent-A-Center and Moe’s Southwestern Grill.
Holderman made the move and got the fitness center ready in a week. He explained that he outgrew the previous 2,500-square-foot space in South Glens Falls, which was the reason for relocating. Holderman had around 75 members and trained nearly 60 of them daily.
The new space is about 7,300 square feet and is fully equipped.
“More space lets us be more creative … we wanted to make it a one-stop-shop gym,” Holderman explained.
“Everything will be in house and members will get the most bang for their buck,” he added.
Adam Willis, who founded Adirondack Manual Physical Therapy, an outpatient physical therapy office in South Glens Falls, will assist with the aches and pains. He specializes in detailed musculoskeletal evaluation, soft tissue mobilization and joint mobilization/manipulation, and is currently pursuing his doctorate in manual therapy from the Ola Grimsby Institute.
TJ Harrington, the strength and conditioning coach, is a graduate of Glens Falls High School. Harrington, who most recently worked with the Los Angeles Angels at the major and minor league levels for the past 15 years, specializes in sports-specific training for athletes of any age.
“We are guys with great backgrounds,” Harrington said.
“Now we have the space to help everyone in the area reach their goals!”
