train smarter with our feel-good strength workouts & strategic programming

Any workout can make you sweaty, sore and tired, but not all workouts will move you forward towards your goals. 

The MELROSE Method is based on the science of simple/efficient low-impact strength training – think squats, lunges, planks – and that’s what makes the difference to give you the most impact for your time/energy.

Our evidence-based approach has you covered for complete results-driven programming and top-tier coaching to take the guesswork out of your routine so you can see/feel results like never before – new skill, stamina, strength, muscle & confidence!

meet your trainer, mel

& FOUNDER of melrose training

Hey, I’m Mel Grauds, Founder of MELROSE Training, Registered Nurse and avid endorphin enthusiast based in Downtown Toronto! I started as a total beginner 6 years ago and spent years chasing wellness fads, feeling confused about how to reach my fitness goals. Everything changed when I simplified my routine and started focusing training smarter, not just harder, through lifting weights. 

Now as a trainer, I strive to streamline this process to help you make progress towards your goals, get the most impact for your time/energy and feel your best overall – all with a feel-good, no-BS, health-focused approachYour goals are my goals and I’m 100% here to support you at every step of your journey – and have fun doing it! 

Welcome to MELROSE Training Club! I can’t wait to workout with you!

meet your dietitian, trista

Trista chan, registered dietitian, MHSc & FOUNDER OF WHOLE BODY NUTRITION COACHING

Growing up, food was, and still is, a central part of my family. Homemade Chinese meals were the foundation of quality time – a way to show love, “grow taller” (as my relatives would say), and connect to our culture. This is how my love of food developed.

Over time this grew into a curiosity about how it impacts our health, and eventually blossomed into a passion for nutrition, science and its evolving nature. From there I received training to become a dietitian and gained experience in diverse practice settings, ranging from hospitals and medical clinics, to corporate wellness and health technology.

The MELROSE training club difference

cut the bs with our UNIQUE health-focused, feel-good approach

We take your health seriously – no fads, no gimmicks, no BS. Led by Mel Grauds, Certified Personal Trainer & Registered Nurse, we saw a gap in the fitness and wellness space for women. Our unique approach to fitness/wellness goes above and beyond your workouts to help you optimize your mindset, recovery, nutrition and entire well-being.

Think of this as the all-in-one solution to getting serious about your fitness routine. No more uninspiring workouts, no more spending hours hopelessly asking Google (or random fitness influencers) for answers, no more struggling to hype yourself up for a low-energy Youtube workout. Just the highest-quality workouts, in a super upbeat environment, with the support and encouragement of your trainer!

MELROSE TRAINING CLUB is perfect for you if


At MELROSE Training, we go above and beyond to offer you a one-of-a-kind, unparalleled client experience. We are here to support you and cheer you on at every step of your journey and these are just some of the amazing, life-changing experiences our 100+ clients have had thus far:


All workouts focus on simple + efficient compound exercises that work multiple muscle groups all at once (think squats, push-ups, planks, lunges, etc.) – with modifications offered for everyone to have an amazing workout. All workouts are low-impact (no-jumping) and strength based – but don’t worry, the workouts are still challenging af (all while protecting your joints)!  The training club includes 6 live 45-minute workouts/week plus additional stretches, foam roll sessions and exclusive events to enrich your well-being and complement your workouts. Sample workouts can be found here!

Not at all! Our goal is meet you wherever you are in your fitness journey and to bring high-quality strength training to everyone. Mel offers modifications in every workout so everyone can feel strong and confident, and you also have access to additional supports including exclusive form tutorial, beginner-focused “Intro to Strength” workouts and direct support from your trainer. Strength training is for everyone and we can’t wait to help you build strength and confidence lifting weights in our upbeat, encouraging environment. Mel herself started as a beginner only a few years ago, and strives to go above and beyond to help you feel comfortable and have fun working out.

We get this question a lot and we’re so happy you asked because we’re here to give you the facts! Yes, in fact, strength training is the most efficient style of training to work towards fat loss. Strength training not only burns calories during the workout, but it also has the unique benefit of elevating your metabolism for 24-48 hours after each workout. Additionally, as you build muscle mass, your resting metabolism increases more and more over time, which hugely contributes in favour of fat loss (and is best achieved with strength training). We’re all for a no-BS, evidence-based approach and we’re here to support you in the pursuit of all fitness goals!

Can’t tune in live? No worries! All live classes/events are recorded and available for you to replay anytime via a private Instagram account.

All workouts are designed to be done with minimal equipment. One set of dumbbells is recommended, but can be substituted for household objects (such as water bottles). We also recommend having a resistance band, but it is not required. We can help get you set up with at-home equipment!

Great question, we get this one a lot! Strength training is a highly efficient way to build overall stamina and endurance, and you will get your heart rate up high in all MELROSE Training workouts. This program has you covered for building cardiorespiratory endurance, all through low-impact, simple/efficient strength training.  If you wish to add additional workouts on top of the training club, our best recommendation is a few brisk walks/week to complement your training, improve your recovery and avoid overtraining. Feel free to reach out if you have specific questions about finding your unique routine.

Because of the nature of this program – that is run live and includes personalized coaching and limited spots, all MELROSE Training Club registrations are final-sale and non-transferrable. But rest assured, we are committed to delivering the HIGHEST quality client experience and have never once had anyone ask for a refund 🙂
