Recently, the Apple Valley Chamber and the City welcomed DISCOVER STRENGTH with a memorable ribbon cutting. After a 10 minute demonstration by their professional physiologists trainers going from machine to machine and us all watching them work out as a trainer/customer team, this is serious workouts.

What sets them apart are several things:

—Their trainers are all 4 year degree Physiologists

—The only require two 30 minutes sessions a week as push and then rest is the key to success, especially for busy people. It requires tense but minimal commitment as anyone can train for 30 minutes 2x weekly.

—They evaluate your level and are all about slow motion in order to keep injuries from happening which so many people “overtrain” and get hurt.

Locally owned as a franchise, owner Jessica Gustafson and her husband own two franchises. She herself is a proud veteran and was even once a TI (tough training instructor in the service). After the ribbon cutting, they treated everyone present with a free frozen meal from Nautical Bowls in Apple Valley.

DISCOVER STRENGTH began and is still headquartered in St. Louis Park in the Twin Cities since 2006 and today has over 40 locations and expect to double that total in 2024. They have franchises in Minnesota, Texas, Florida, Colorado, Wisconsin, Massachusetts, Tennessee and Washington DC so far. While you discover your strength, we feel soon they will discover what a “strong powerhouse community” Apple Valley is as we are experiencing massive growth and business expansion rivaling Woodbury and Maple Grove.
