Southside Strength & Fitness
11901 Industry Way, Anchorage, AK 99515
I cannot stand gyms with stupid rules about lifting quitely as to not disturb others, no grunting, no pushing REAL iron. Southside is where you go if you really want to train. They cater to athletes. All the equipment you desire is there. No frills, no shady contracts, and affordable!
So many corporate fitness facilities cater to the consumer wanting to lose weight so they turn off serious strength athletes who are pushing heavy iron. Southside has new cardio machine and free boot camp classes for those wanting to lose weight and enough free weights and lifting platforms to support an Olympic lifting club if anybody wanted to start one. This is run by a family including the ole man with a powerlifting background and daughters who turned the lobby into a cool coffee bar with protein shakes and free WIFI.
We really cleaned the old Polaris gym up. Nicely re- lined cedar saunas, new showers and lockers. New cardio machines and some fun classes that are free with your membership. Nice leather couch in the lobby to relax ck e mail and have a fresh latte when your done working out.
