We are incredibly excited to announce that the gym will have new ownership. Chris and Christina Romano will be taking over ownership of Atlanta Strength and Conditioning beginning this week. Crossfit Vesuvio will be joining forces with Atlanta Strength and Conditioning. Chris has been the head trainer at Crossfit Perimeter for the past four years and is incredibly fired up to combine his Crossfit background with our current strength and conditioning platform.

Romano Family

Chris is an accomplished athlete and coach. He is an avid skier and spent several years on the US Ski team. When he’s not training, you’ll find him spending time with Christina and their two beautiful boys: Lee and Alex. Chris also has extensive experience competing in Crossfit, The Grid and Wodapalooza. Chris is extremely excited to bring his background, knowledge and expertise to our members. He is also very impressed with the programs and training that we currently offer. That’s why he is committed to keeping our current staff and programs in place. He will will be folding in additional Crossfit classes and programming to our current offerings. He’s been actively participating in the AM STAC program with Lauren, our conditioning classes and our Ladies Training for the month and like you, loves what he sees.

Christina works as Comptroller for Georgia Power and has worked within the Southern Company family her entire career since starting as an co-op during her college days at Georgia Tech. Christina appreciates the value of giving back and currently serves as an advisor to two local ZTA chapters and is on the board to the Citizens of Georgia Power and the Northwest YWCA.  She has lived in the Cobb/Atlanta area her whole life.  She has a B.S. in Management, a Masters in Accounting and a MBA. For fun, Christina enjoys shopping (what girl doesn’t?!) and traveling, though with two young boys, she doesn’t get to travel as much as she used to. She’s happiest being with family and playing with the boys.

Coach Charles will be here every week through the remainder of the year. His new role will be managing the Off-Site programs and helping to transition the gym to the new owners. We are thrilled to combine ATLSC and CF Vesuvio into a cornucopia of training awesomeness. Be on the lookout for announcements relating to new class offerings and times. Thank you for your support, energy and continued confidence in our training. This is indeed an exciting new chapter for the gym and its family.
