Personal fitness coaching meets fun group workouts.
No other gym provides this.

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 support of having a personal trainer.

How do we do it? We’ve created a culture of collaboration rooted in caring. What’s that mean? It means we  put the time and energy into getting to know each and every one of our members and we see them as a whole lot more than a simple fitness goal. When on-boarded at AFS, our team of coaches works side by side with you to both ensure you’re attending consistently AND doing the mental work required to change your habits. Here’s the truth, all the information you need to be healthier is out there, but it’s not being served to you through the lens of YOU! That’s what we do. You are so much more than a number on a scale, and we get that-which is why we are more than fitness.

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 members. We believe that everyone has it in them to make change happen, we’re just here to help extract that power.

We're always with you. Even at home.

What does that mean?
Whether it's writing you workouts for your basement, answering your nutrition questions in our community forum, or simply shooting you a message when we haven't seen you in class. We're here for you.

YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO IT ALONE

Starting on your journey can be tough and we don't want anyone to have to go it alone. That's why each and every one of our members is on-boarded and coached by our team of trusted pros. Everybody gets this, not just those who pay "extra."

WEEKLY INTERACTION AND SUPPORT

Throughout the week you’ll attend fun supervised classes at our gym. When you’re not here with us, our coaches will be checking in and educating you every step of the way. What’s a macronutrient? How much protein should I eat per day? We’ll keep you focused on the right things and bring you along without stressing you out.
