City's first Blitz 45 gym to join with chiropractor

A chiropractor and a strength/conditioning coach for a high school football team are joining forces to bring both a boutique gym franchise and a chiropractor/neuropathy clinic to the same space in East Memphis.

The corner bay at 3477 Poplar in University Center shopping center, at the southwest corner of Poplar and Highland, will be co-branded as a Blitz 45 Functional Training Studio and Midsouth Wellness Center.

Dr. Starr Cheshier is moving his Midsouth Wellness Center there from 1052 Brookfield.

Johnny Jones will oversee the Blitz 45 Functional Training gym when he’s not coaching the defensive line and handling strength and conditioning for the Memphis University School football team. Jones is also an ownership partner in the franchise.

Midsouth Wellness Center should open there by Aug. 5 and Blitz 45 after Labor Day, Cheshier said.
