SS Times


What a beautiful summer we are having.  You simply cannot beat Michigan in the summer!  I hope you all have been enjoying yourselves!

I am very happy with the way things are shaping up at SS 2.  We are putting the finishing touches on the facility (signage, blinds, paint and linen services).

Summer time is traditionally a slower time in the Gym industry..  but we are still growing at a healthy clip, and that makes me very proud.

Managing growth is always a challenge for a new business and can be especially challenging in the “off” season.

Despite this, we have added 4 new training members this month (Jack, Marlo, Anne-Marie, Faith) and have signed up 8 new keycard memberships!  Simply amazing!

Thank you all for your patience.  Thank you to all the clients that have remained with us faithfully through these last few months.

We are blessed with amazing clients, and I thank you all for recommitting to Smart Strength as a brand and supporting us.

We will work tirelessly to make sure you get the top-notch experience and results you are looking for.

A special thank you to Erin & Lexi, as they have committed to the Smart Strength team and have bought into the vision.  We are lucky to have them.
