SS Times


“We believe fitness is medicine, for the mind, body and community.”



SS Times


August was a beautiful weather month for us here in Michigan, and that makes it very hard to find time to come inside and workout.  That is no secret.

August also presents a lot of “last minute” summer activities including planning for back to school, the last chance to vacation up north or visit relatives or have a wedding or baby shower.  The list is endless.

We at Smart Strength have been utilizing this slower season to work on things behind the scenes and are excited to roll them out as we turn into fall.  Some of the things we have been working on include:

-Staffed hours for new sign ups and membership questions

-Scheduling a ribbon cutting ceremony and increasing our marketing efforts

-Launching a new website

-Creating an online presence and sharing our online training resources

-Sponsorship of community events including the Greater Albion Chamber of Commerce golf outing and Forks 5k Run Albion series

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 our head trainer Erin & associate Lexi.  They have committed to the Smart Strength team and have bought into the vision.  We are lucky to have them.
