OUR TEAM

Our Story

Welcome! We are so glad you found us. For 22 years we have had the privilege of working with over 2000 clients. Helping them be fit and strong so they live their best lives as they age. As a group of trainers we come from diverse backgrounds and interests but share the same training philosophy and support our shared values. We are professionals in our field and each holds at least 2+ certifications with national organizations. We strive to constantly hone our “craft” so that we can provide our clients with the right fitness program. The majority of us have been together for 12+ years and together possess over 180 years of experience.

We have shared in the joys and celebrations with our clients as they accomplished such feats as walking the El Camino, biking thru Newfoundland, playing soccer and other games with their grandchildren, hiking Macchu Picchu, the Dolomites and the mountains of Chile, paddling the Yukon Territories, building Habitat houses or just taking a walk thru their neighborhood.  They might come in the door feeling tired or stiff, yet leave feeling better when they came in so that tomorrow they will have the energy to do what they want to do.

We couldn’t ask for better clients or a better job! We hope to have the opportunity of working with you too!

About Mickey
The senior classes have meant so much to me over the past 19 years at Training Partners. Not only the physical part of our separate programs, but we’ve become a family of caring women who are seeking the same goals.

– Donna M., Member 19+ years

The challenges of running NC Stage, being active with our kids, and enjoying activities with each other are made possible by staying as fit as we can.  Training Partners has been invaluable in helping us maintain the energy and strength to keep up with everything.  I started working out at TP when I got cast in a play that required a great deal of physical stamina. TP has helped me perform physical and mental feats, lose weight, and muscle up for some plays. They are AWESOME!

– Charlie Flynn-McIver, Owner NC Stage

Charlie and his wife Angie founded NC Stage, Asheville’s professional theatre, in downtown Asheville in 2002.
