A revolutionary way to  get fit and stay fit.
What To Expect When You Come In For Your Initial Consultation
People who come to us want all the health and lifestyle benefits that exercise can provide them, but don't want to devote a large part of their life to doing it. They typically don’t have a history of regular exercise, or haven’t done anything in years. Most have never worked with someone one-on-one to make themselves better.

It’s important for you to be comfortable with our process, so here it is:

We’ll meet at the appointed time. You and I will discuss your goals, your commitment to those goals and if our philosophy and recommendations to accomplish your goals are compatible with what you can and are willing to do. If they are not, we’ll part as friends. If they are, the next step is…

…a sample workout. It consists of 3 resistance training exercises. How we do things is different. It’s a controlled environment with exercise being performed in a controlled and focused way. It is not a form of entertainment, competition or a time for socializing. Once you experience it, you’ll understand.

If we agree on what to do and how to do it, the next step is for you to commit to a starting package. The starting package is 6 weeks long. During this period, you will be learning to focus better, work harder, and increase your control. You’ll always be in control of your effort and there will be little to no soreness. Soreness is not required or sought.

What To Expect After The Initial Consultation

You’ll establish a set time and date for your appointment or use the MindBody online app to schedule yourself as you wish each week.

When you come in for your workout, you will:

  • Perform only essential resistance training exercises. I’ve selected the very best exercises for results and time-efficiency.
  • Do each exercise briefly. The MED requires only seconds of high effort to produce maximal results.
  • Exercise safely. The key to applying high effort is to be confident that you will not hurt yourself. Our proprietary protocol insures that your maximum effort will be safely done.  Just push to a fixed position, hold and release. Anyone can do it.
  • Exercise privately. There is no audience to inhibit or distract you from your purpose.
  • Be supervised every session. Our experienced instructors will help you safely get the maximum return on your effort by insuring you perform each exercise correctly and with the proper focus and breathing techniques. No raised voices. Just the focused application of effort.
  • Have your program managed properly. Our proprietary resistance exercise system allows us to accurately measure and record your efforts to ensure safe progression.
  • Not sweat. You can do your work in the same clothes you go to work or spend your day in. No need to change, shower, re-apply makeup or any of the other hassles of traditional methods.

Every muscle from ear to ankle is thoroughly worked. You're going to feel better, stronger and more in control just from one session!

You’ll then be given a cup of water, we’ll discuss your workout performance and you’ll be on your way.

That’s it.

Dear Asheville friends, I have lost 7 pounds of fat and reshaped my body by building muscle in so many ways. The BEST part is that I only workout 2 times a week for 15 minutes each session. If you are like me and hate spending hours in the gym or simply don’t have hours to spend, then you should consider this program. I am so glad that I did.     Cynthia Watson

Being a busy professional, husband and father of three young children, MEDStrength is perfect for my full schedule. The highly trained staff and efficiency of the workout allow me to fit exercise into my busy schedule and get the results I want.  - Jeff Plack
Asheville Personal Training MEDStrength Sharon
"Prior to joining MEDStrength, I spent most of my adult life avoiding any form of exercise. Never having been even remotely athletic, I avoided any and all sorts of physical activity. I found exercise to be utterly boring and existing only to reaffirm how unfit and uncoordinated I actually was.

I endeavored to manage my weight and health through diet and my God-given metabolism. That worked until I hit 50, and I was faced with having to do "something" beyond what always used to work.

On the recommendation of my doctor, I tried MEDStrength. It fit my interest level - once a week for 30 minutes. I figured that was certainly doable.

I have now been a MEDStrength client for many months and am actually really enjoying the time I spend here. I can easily fit the training into my schedule. I don't feel like I have to live at a gym. I am coached, encouraged, and supported throughout my workouts. AND...I am noticing differences, not only in my body, but in how I feel about myself overall. I am delighted with my level of commitment and the simple fact that I am doing something productive to ensure my future well-being. My only regret is that I didn't join sooner."
