Who we are
B-Strong Athletics, LLC is a family owned and operated business established Elyse and Joshua Buchbinder in September 2016 in Baltimore, Md. After years of working in gyms Joshua and Elyse decided to step away from the "Big Box" model in order to provide a better service where they could focus on the needs of their clients without having to meet quotas. Originally, their services were limited to in-home personal training, small group training, and nutrition coaching. The Buchbinders noticed an absence of evidence-based fitness and nutrition education and coaching in the recovery community, mental health facilities, and in drug and alcohol treatment centers. Science has shown and continues to demonstrate the efficacy of specific protocols on improving sobriety and mental health. Now, B-Strong Athletics is honored to provide fitness, nutrition, and wellness education and services to treatment centers, recovery communities, and recovering individuals throughout the state of Maryland.
The mission of B-Strong Athletics, LLC is to improve the overall quality of life for those recovering from alcoholism, addiction, and mental health conditions. Integrating a proper fitness and nutrition program can enhance sobriety by decreasing symptoms of depression/anxiety/bi-polar, elevating overall mood, reducing chronic pain, developing a sense of community, improving body image and self-esteem, lowering instances of self-harm, and reducing cravings for drugs and alcohol. B-Strong Athletics uses science-based methods to get clients real-life results and help them live life to its fullest.
