This month we're taking a closer look at the experience you get from a big box gym vs. a studio gym. My friend, Ben Dreyer, is a certified personal trainer and owns Studio Melt in Madison, Wisconsin, along with an incredible lady named Mona Melms.

The two of them live the lifestyle that they try and instill in their clients every day: total body health.

I asked Ben to pinpoint the top five benefits of a studio, or small gym. The following is taken from that conversation.

Life Number Two

Life Number Two

Life Number Two. For most of us, it’s difficult to imagine how our lives would change after a cancer diagnosis; yet, so many of us have been in close proximity to the disease, supporting friends and family undergoing treatment.

Our own Mona Melms and melt client Samantha Mergen share an incredible story of surviving cancer, beating the odds, and enjoying Life Number Two.

Thank you very much to Nicole Sandler and Promega for telling their story.

US Bank Building - January 4!

November 11, 2015

We're writing with very exciting news - melt is moving spaces! We will be located on the 1st floor of the US Bank Building on the square. Buildout of the space is beginning this week and we expect to move-in by the first of the year. We've worked with Urban Land Interests and OPN Architects to create a beautiful, efficient space that fits all of our needs. Highlights include a wall of windows facing Webster St., renovated locker rooms/bathroom facilities, and underground parking in the building.

We've worked very hard to retain our culture, branding, and high quality services that define us. Our mission has always been to elevate the level of practice in the health & fitness industry by creating a collaborative studio, where Madison's best and brightest practitioners can improve the health of their clients. We think the new space fulfills that mission completely, allowing us to continue to grow our practice in a fresh environment.

We're very excited about this next step for melt and can't thank you enough for all of your support over the years. We owe our success to all of you. Now let's get fired up!

-Ben and Mona
