TRAIN SMARTER, get stronger and fall in love with the process

 Founded by Mel Grauds, Certified Personal Trainer and Registered Nurse, MELROSE Training is based on the principle that exercise is the ultimate investment in yourself. Your health/well-being are our top priorities and we’re fully dedicated to helping you move well and live better, not only with us, but for life. At MELROSE Training, fitness isn’t about burning calories or chasing a certain look, it’s about building a stronger and more fulfilled version of you. Our goal is to shift the fitness narrative that’s typically sold to females and emphasizes aesthetics, cardio, calories, restriction/elimination, quick-fixes, and more BS. It’s time to focus on  building strength, challenging ourselves, honouring your body and finding purpose in movement – that’s the MELROSE Training difference. 

Train with us for a HEALTH-FOCUSED, results-driven APPROACH to fitness that feels amazinggg

It can be hard to figure it all out on your own and know how to achieve your specific goals, but fitness shouldn’t be confusing or intimidating and we’re here to help streamline the process. Whether you’re not sure where to start or you feel like you’ve tried everything and it’s just not working, we strive to take the guesswork out so you can get what you want with the support to show up and put the work in. Functional strength training – the mainstay of MELROSE Training –  is a fantastic “all rounder” for building strength, athleticism, stamina and feeling AMAZING, not only in your workouts, but in everyday life – and that’s what makes the difference. 


Set yourself up for the ultimate success with a top-tier program, 100% tailored to you with unparalleled support from your trainer at every step of the way.

Why strength training?

The MELROSE Method focuses on simple & efficient strength training – think squats, planks, rows, etc – optimized to give you the most impact for your time and energy. Our workouts are one of a kind in the fitness space, strategically designed to streamline this process for you to train with confidence and accelerate your progress. Training smarter to build yourself up – not burn yourself out – is what we’re all about. No fads, no gimmicks, no BS – just high quality training that’s grounded in science and purpose  – and that’s why it works.  

Meet your trainer


I see exercise as a powerful investment in our entire well-being and I created MELROSE Training to bring simple and effective online strength workouts to everyone at home. It was only a few years ago that I was a beginner, feeling intimidated and confused about fitness and unsure of where to go to figure it all out. As a Certified Personal Trainer and Registered Nurse, your health and well being are my top priorities and that’s why I created the life-changing style of training that goes above and beyond your workouts, to impact your overall well-being.  Your goals are my goals and I’m 100% here to support you at every step of your fitness journey!

Fitness that feels good! Welcome to MELROSE Training.

Lifting weights and learning to deadlift with proper form is incredible, but at its core, exercise is really a catalyst for meaningful change and fulfillment in your life overall. At MELROSE Training, it’s all about feeling: STRONG, ENERGIZED and CONFIDENT.
No matter where you’re at in fitness or in life, you deserve to feel your best, always, and we’re here to help get you there!
