PLAE HARD is a Strength & Conditioning facility that focuses on Group and Individual Personal Training. Our clients build strength while sculpting their muscles through basic principles of strength and conditioning. This is done primarily through our signature programs: STRONG60 and FIT60.
Those that want more individual attention work individually with one of our coaches.
I have maintained membership at many gyms, but, this one is the first that I have attended that I feel like everyone cares and supports you. The instructors are fabulous and make you feel successful. I can't say enough about this place. I told Josh during class today that I was probably going to hate him tomorrow. In a good way. Ha, ha!! LOVE, LOVE this gym. Go and try it out.
PS: I can't Believe how much stronger I am on the bike after 10 sessions at this gym.
Guard Up Training
Guard Up Training has been a dream of Founder and Co-Owner, Eddie Bowers, for 30 years. With a background (NASM) and a passion for health, fitness & strength he wanted to make his dream a reality. Eddie believes that everyone can achieve their goals, whatever that may look like for them.

Every time I go to Strongside I feel comfortable, I get a great workout, I’m surrounded by uplifting peers and coaches and I always walk away feeling a little bit stronger. Try it one time, and I promise you will want to come back for more. The training is tailored to your personal needs and your growth is inevitable.
So glad I FINALLY I took a chance on this gym. I can't tell you how many gyms I analyzed and cringed at the thought of the salesperson making their pitch for something I didn't want. Although this gym thrives with their PHIIT program, which seems to be the craze now, I just wanted a gym to work out when I wanted to. Marcus listened to my exact needs, not his and provided a 6 month upfront paid in advance rate. Turning 50 and getting put on cholesterol medication, I'm happy to say after joining I lost 4-5 lbs in the first 10 days, just doing my own thing. Marcus is a great help if I'm not sure how to use a piece of equipment or perform an exercise properly, otherwise he's humble yet supportive. And he takes great pride in doing his own cleaning and maintenance. There are sanitizing bottles all over to keep the equipment clean. It looks new to me even after a few years open. What may have been the bonus is the Hydromassage table that I use for my degenerative disc disease in my back. This is Heaven and a great way to end the workout. This is a middle-aged average gym for the most part, no egos, and the last thing Marcus said stuck with me. "My goal more than anything is just to make you feel better overall". I did a Groupon for the first month to try it out, so that helped me ease in. Don't put it offer any longer. Give this place an opportunity. Your body, mind and self esteem will thank you for it.
Very professional and knowledgeable, I was very pleased with the service they provide and the price is right for what they offer! Thank you Guard up for your expertise, definitely check these guys out you won’t regret it!
A big shout out to Onelife! Last week we were visiting from upstate New York and wanted to find a facility that offered more than the pathetic fitness option offered at our hotel. We googled fitness facilities in Virginia, made a couple of phone calls and Onelife welcomed us ... oh, and allowed us to work out at no charge! The facility was amazing - offering all levels of workout options and the staff was incredibly welcoming, helpful and supportive. Thank you to Onelife ... we love your business model and want to know when we'll see you in New York! :)
