There is a new place for health and wellness in North Tonawanda.

It’s called Timberstrength and on Saturday the new business held their grand opening celebration.

They are located at the old Fitness 19 location at 1049 Payne Avenue. In addition to exercise machines, the new business offers so much more to help people across the area get and stay healthy.

“We are a full-service gym with cardio vascular machines, strength training and free weights,” said Andrew Pentheros, Owner.

“We also offer professional and personal training services with one on one training. Our goal is to have everything you could possibly want in a gym.”

Timberstrength also offers group classes for people of all ages which include, boot camps and everything in between.

According to owners, it is more important than ever to offer health alternatives for people across North Tonawanda and beyond.

Pantheros says targeting health goals for each specific individual is what sets his gym apart from others.

“If you are not healthy, you are not anything,” said Pantheros. “Health and wellness is our goal. We do it from the beginning – for those people who are just starting to exercise – all the way up to those who want to run marathons or do fitness competitions.”



It’s not just young people either, owners say.

They surprisingly have a high number of senior citizens who come here to work out.

“We have a very high number of seniors that come to use our facility because of our central location here in North Tonawanda,” said Pantheros. “It is central for a lot of people and I like to think that they appreciate the attention we give to their overall health and well-being.”

In addition to exercising they are also working to education people about way to eat healthy and what to eat and what foods to avoid.

“A lot of people after they are done working out, or just after working all day, do not want to cook for themselves which often leads to unhealthy choices. That is why I try and provide some healthy meals for them so that they can maintain a healthy lifestyle without having to shoulder all of the pres- sure,” said Joseph James, Meal Prep Specialist.

James says he plans on bringing between 20-30 health prepped meals to the gym that people can pick from.

Timberstrength is open 7 days a week.

Saturday from 8am- 6pm. Sunday 8amam-6pm. Monday-Friday from 5am to 10pm.
