About Us

Our History

Applied Fitness Solutions started in Ann Arbor, MI in 2007. We had a tiny 3,000 sq. foot facility hidden in a storage complex complete with cement floors and very little equipment. Luckily, we also had an idea! We wanted to bring together the invigorating experience of group exercise classes with the structure and accountability of having a personal trainer.

How do we do it? We match up each one of our valued clients to their very own fitness coach who guides them through every step of their fitness journey. We’re there to provide support, education, and accountability so our clients don’t have to go it alone. Our clients use their coaches to help them adopt a healthier lifestyle and they use our in facility classes to take their physical fitness to the next level. AFS has classes for all ability levels and goals, so it’s as easy as telling us what you’re looking to accomplish and we’ll recommend the classes and the AFS coach that’s right for you!

Over the years we’ve grown from one little storage unit, to a bustling Ann Arbor headquarters, a flourishing second location in Plymouth, and now a brand new 17,000 sq. foot location in Rochester Hills. Our success is and always will be thanks to the relationships we have with our clients. We believe that everyone has it in them to make change happen, we’re just here to help extract that power.

Childcare staff must pass background checks and drug screening tests upon employment to further ensure the safety of your children while you work out.

Childcare activities include coloring and drawing, games and puzzles, DVDs, and of course, lots of toys!

Childcare is available for children who cannot be left alone without parents. Childcare staff does not do any diaper changing or feeding.
