The Gym

About Us

Originally conceptualized in 2013 while lying on a broken mattress in Afghanistan but founded in 2017, The Atlas Strength Shop is an ever evolving organization that exists to help you become the strongest version of yourself using easily accessible but challenging power lifting and strongman techniques.  Currently we are located in the heart of Baton Rouge, LA at 2612 N Dumont Dr, Baton Rouge, LA 70814.

 Our staff promises to always be learning and to remain dedicated to our students, readers, and the pursuit of strength.

3rd Annual Rougarou Classic
  • Monolift

    We’re one of the only gyms in Louisiana with a Monolift. If you’ve never used one before, all you do is un rack your squat and the J Hooks move out of your way negating the need for a walk out. While this machine does require a partner to help you work the mechanism the Monolift is a great option for driving those squat numbers up!!

  • TSS Combo Rack

    A Powerlifting Staple, a Combo Rack will be the rack of choice for most Powerlifting Federations. Perfect for people who like training with a partner or group due to the ease of changing the rack height. Dog not included….. Sometimes he’s included

  • Atlas Stones

    We have a few dozen’s Atlas Strones ranging from 55 lbs all the way to 415 lbs. You can load these over a Yoke or onto our 6 level tiered platform! This platform is the definition of overbuilt and ranges in heights from 48 to 58 inches

  • Yokes

    We have a pair of Heavy Duty Yokes from Invictus Strength. Weighing in at 210 lbs a piece, you can either load these up with more weight than any mortal man or woman can possibly handle and take them for a walk on our 80 feet or Turf or you can use the the top bar designed to handle a beating to load your favorite stone or sandbag!!

  • So Many Leg Machines

    We have an ever growing list of machines that will grow your Tree Trunks Big and Strong. As of right now on the roster we have a Leg Press, a Hack Squat, a Leverage Squat, a Belt Squat, a Reverse Hyper, a GHD, a Sissy Squat, a Glute Bridge Bench, and a Leg Extention/ Curl Machine!!

  • Community

    Yeah I know it’s not technically equipment but community building has been instrumental in our success since we opened our first location in 2018. This is most apparent every Saturday morning at 10:00am when we get together as a training crew and focus primarily on Strongman Implements. This is by far the best time for new members to come check us out!!
