We believe that everyone deserves to realize their potential as a human being.

We believe that people are capable of more than they think.

We believe that teaching, learning, support, collaboration, and accountability serve as the foundation to achieving success.

We believe that success is a relative term. Each of us is unique and therefore each of us defines success differently.

We believe that true health is not just freedom from disease, but rather the ability to do the things you want and need to do. These are the things that help you enjoy life: To take care of yourself and others, to succeed as a parent and spouse, to avoid the pitfalls of aging and chronic disease, to be the best YOU that you can be.

We believe that taking care of your physical body is important. But life needs balance. We must have a healthy body, a healthy mind, a healthy spirit, a healthy family life, and healthy finances. We must understand our purpose, our meaning for living. Realizing your potential is not the understanding that you have potential. It is the actualization of this potential that we hope to inspire.


We didn’t want to create another gym or health club where people were left to wonder what to do. By combining injury prevention, injury rehabilitation, functional fitness, and nutrition we feel that Effort Effect Fitness and Rehabilitation Center offers a the most complete programming in WNC. And that is precisely why we are different; you aren’t buying access to machines or equipment. You are buying teaching, coaching, and effective programming.

You won’t be left wondering what to do, you won’t be struggling to see results, and you won’t get bored and view exercise as a chore. We will help you build healthy habits and a LOVE of fitness. If you let us, we WILL help you REALIZE YOUR POTENTIAL.
