the Workouts

Any workout can make you sweaty, sore and tired, but not every workout will move you forward towards your goals. Unlike traditional group classes and workouts targeted towards women, our programs are based on the science of simple and efficient strength training to give you the most impact for your time. Classes have a strong emphasis on technique and are designed to help you master classic strength exercises that work multiple muscles at once. 

We have you covered for world-class programming, so when you put in the work, you see results like never before: new muscle definition, better form, increased energy, better sleep, improved posture, improved flexibility and so much more! Our workouts are designed to build you up, not break you down, and our low impact method is safe on the joints (and you’ll never do a burpee!). It’s not magic, it’s not a quick fix – it’s science, and that’s what makes the difference.

NEW! Guest Speakers

Your health isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach, and that’s why we’re excited to enrich your fitness experience with our new guest panel series. Connect with our experts and learn meaningful and practical information that you can apply to your daily life to optimize your well-being.

What members love most about the training club

Check ins, flexibility , consistency in workouts even if my schedule isn’t consistent.
The flexible schedule with both live and recorded workouts is key. The low impact training is the best!
Accountability and new training style. The flexibility and scheduling of the program has worked well for me.
Class recordings, including weights into my workouts. Being able to go back to the classes when it’s more convenient for me and my schedule. Also, I love having a calendar to visualize and keep track of workouts I have been able to complete in the program, for my own accountability.
I like that I can come back to workouts and fit them in around my work and school schedule. Love the live workouts, especially the morning ones. They keep me motivated to get up and get it done.
I love knowing what the week is going to look like, and it makes it easy to find time within my schedule to complete the workouts. Even on days that I don’t feel motivated to exercise, I know I just need to ‘show up’ and after 5 minutes I’m motivated to complete the workout.

Hey, I'm Mel! Have we met?


Hi, I’m Mel Grauds, Founder of MELROSE Training and avid exercise enthusiast! I started as a total beginner 5 years ago and have spent years feeling confused about how to reach my fitness goals. Everything changed when I simplified my routine and started focusing on  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. I’m all about taking care of yourself and building strength/confidence through at-home strength training. Your goals are my goals and I’m 100% here to support you at every step of your journey! 

Welcome to MELROSE Training Club!


MELROSE Training Club is for people of all fitness levels who are looking for structure/motivation in reaching their fitness goals from home. All workouts are modifiable for all levels. Weeks 1 and 2 include Intro to Strength beginner-focused workouts, and each week includes 1 Advanced Strength workout. You don’t need any prior fitness experience to join!

The training club includes 5 live 45-minute workouts/week. 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)! 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 all levels. Sample workouts can be found at

You can stream live workouts via your choice of Zoom or via a private Instagram account. Can’t join us live? No worries! All classes are recorded and available for you to replay anytime.

All workouts are designed to be done with minimal equipment. One set of weights 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!

We want to offer you the support you need in the club. You will have access to the private @melrosetrainingclub Instagram account to ask unlimited questions over the next 8 weeks, in addition to direct contact with Mel during live workouts and webinars. 

I am so confident that you will enjoy your experience that I am happy to offer a full refund if you complete all of the workouts and don’t absolutely love your first two weeks in the club.
