Cresa Represents Thrive Fitness In Opening New Studio In Chamblee


Steve Hanna

Thrive Fitness, an Atlanta-based one-on-one and group fitness studio, will open a new, 11,900-square-foot gym in the heart of Chamblee, Georgia. Steve Hanna, Vice President at Cresa Global Inc., represented Thrive in this transaction. Tom Garland and Robb Draughon of NAI Brannen Goddard represented the landlord.

Thrive’s existing facility is a 3,360-square-foot building in Brookhaven, Georgia. The decision to open a new studio in Chamblee was highly influenced by the city’s on-going transformation to its historic downtown. Thrive’s new location will be located at 3422 Pierce Drive off Chamblee’s Rail Trail, a miniature version of Atlanta’s Beltline, that meanders through the city’s residential and commercial districts.

The company’s new facility will have the space it needs to foster its exponential growth to better serve and attract new members. The space will include a recovery area on one side of the studio with a full-service gym and consultation area on the other side.

“Working with Cresa was a great experience,” said Lloyd Garden, Owner of Thrive Fitness. “Steve showed professionalism, thoughtfulness, and fairness in every aspect of the site selection process, and we are confident the new space will put us in the best position to achieve our long-term goals.”

Thrive’s Brookhaven location is taking all precautionary measures as they maintain operations amidst COVID-19. Gym guidelines include: all staff wearing masks, temperature checks upon entry, studio mats that self-clean shoes (a combination of bleach and water), staggered entry to avoid overflow, social distancing, and increased cleaning. With the end of the pandemic nowhere in sight, Thrive plans to implement these guidelines at its Chamblee location to ensure the safety of all members.

Build-out of the space will begin at the end of August with a projected grand opening in December of this year.
