Welcome to Training Partners!

If you are new to Asheville we are glad you have found us. Come by or give us a call and introduce yourself. We would love to meet you and explore the opportunity of helping you stay healthy and fit so you can participate in the activities of your choice. If you’ve been gone for awhile or too busy to exercise it’s the perfect time to get back into the “exercise habit.” For that is truly all it is: a habit. We have many ways to help you. Check out our classes and small group training sessions. Or if you need more individual attention start working out with one of our personal trainers.

Here’s to a happy, active and healthy life,

Training Partners is a unique work out facility. It is small, not intimidating, and generally a very friendly place to be. It is so nice to come to a place where people know who you are and care about your health and well-being. This, along with my personal trainer of course, has been key in my long-term commitment to training.
