August 2011 Announcements


WLS Annual Price Increase

In order to maintain a continued high quality of service, we will be instituting a small price increase to all WLS memberships and packages, effective 9/1/2011. This is our first price increase since January 2010 and is necessary to combat the rising cost of doing business.

WLS membership prices will increase by approximately 5% (less than the 7.5% stated in the membership agreement). However, annual increases are not applicable within the first 12 months of membership. New membership pricing will be as follows:
– 8 sessions = 73.50
– 12 sessions = 99.75
– Drop-In sessions = 8.50

If you have any questions as to what your membership rate will be moving forward, please call or email Nicole (

Similarly, WLS Package prices will increase by approximately 10%. As of 9/1/2011, WLS packages will be as follows:
– 18 sessions = $220.00
– 36 sessions = $400.00
– 54 sessions = $540.00

Parking Around AFS

I wanted to thank everyone for adhering to our policy regarding parking around the AFS facility. Thanks to your adherence, and some changes to the class schedule, the parking lot is much less congested and much safer. Please keep in mind that you may park in the following places:

(1) All non-reserved spaces on the east side of the building (as well as spaces where the signs read reserved for 4710, 4712, and 4714, as those are our parking spaces).

(2) All of the parking spaces to the immediate north of the building. This includes not only lined spaces, but also parallel parking along the curb to the north of the building, as well as anywhere else parallel parking is safely possible in the lot. If you do parallel park, please take care to make sure you don’t box anyone in.

(3) The parking area on the east side of the large Devon Self Storage building at the south end of the complex. Parallel parking is permitted in this area as well.

AFS Facebook Group

We are excited to be on Facebook once again, and we invite you to join our Facebook Group! We will have daily posts that will consist of motivational tips, inspirational quotes, healthy recipes, and quick fit tips. We hope you enjoy, and find useful, the information we provide. Please look for our daily wall posts, and if you’re not a member of our group already, join today by searching Applied Fitness Solutions.

Technique Orientation

Effective August 1st, we are excited to announce the implementation of a technique orientation. This orientation is designed to teach basic exercise techniques for the WLS conditioning class. Common exercises, along with their postural components, common errors, and their progressions will be covered. All participants will receive a technique manual to reinforce topics covered in the orientation.
Although the orientation is provided to all new clients as part of their orientation fee, existing clients can take advantage of this as well (the cost is $20). Orientations are performed in a small group of 5 or fewer people. Current orientation times are Tuesday evenings at 6:45 p.m. and Saturdays at 11:30 a.m. If you are interested, please ask an AFS staff member.

lululemon Trunk Show at AFS

AFS has partnered with the lululemon showroom in Ann Arbor to bring you a trunk show of their fashionable workout apparel. The trunk show will be Saturday August 27th from 2-4 p.m. in the lobby of AFS, and lululemon clothing will be available for purchase onsite at discounted rates. Healthy snacks will be provided. Please feel free to bring your friends and family!

AFS Non-Solicitation Policy Reminder

I would like to, respectfully, remind everyone to adhere to our non-solicitation policy. This policy (which all of you read and signed as a part of your intake waiver, or as an addendum to it) basically states that you will refrain from attempting to solicit any AFS client, in and around our facility, for any business, charitable, or religious purposes. Obviously, the intent of this policy is not to police or limit casual conversation, but formal solicitation in the exercise environment is inappropriate and can be uncomfortable for the person approached. In an effort to maintain a fun and enjoyable exercise experience, I would ask all of you to adhere to this policy. If anyone has any questions or concerns regarding this policy, please contact me directly.

Furthermore, as most of you are probably aware, we do have a board for charity events in our lobby. AFS strongly believes in supporting charity opportunities, and I encourage anyone who is looking to support their charity event to contact me if they’d like to post a flyer on the bulletin board.

Yours in Health,
