About

The Nerd Gym is where science, imagination and fitness collide! We all have a body to take care of. Why not make it interesting? Why not make it fun? The Nerd Gym is body-positive fitness for busy humans. We want to inspire and motivate adult humans to live their best life! To do that, we offer a variety of live online fitness classes, meal plans, videos, coaching and support. We have a fitness culture of kindness, compassion and humor! Help us blast through the bleak atmosphere of boring, body-shaming fitness culture! Let's create a world where having a body is actually fun and exciting!

From The Nerd Gym's Founder:

When I was in my mid twenties, I was morbidly obese.
I had chronic, severe back and neck pain.
I had panic attacks.
I was living below the poverty line with 2 young children and my husband.
Both my husband and I were working as many hours as we could.
We took the bus.
We did laundry in the bathtub.
We cut our own hair.
We had rice and beans for almost every meal.
Getting help with my personal nutrition and fitness was a luxury I couldn't afford.
But I did it anyway.
I paid for a gym membership and a small personal training package with my meager tax return.

THAT decision literally changed my life!

Over the coarse of one year, I went from fat, broke, in-pain, anxious and depressed to STRONG!
Fitness made me strong in every sense of the word.
I had more energy.
I became a better mom, a better friend, a better partner, a better daughter.
I was happier.
I was no longer in pain.
I became inspired to share this magic with others.
In 2008 quit my motley mix of retail jobs and side hustles and became a full-time personal trainer.

I started out doing one-on one training in big gyms.
That is where I realized why most people who need a gym never go. The culture in these gyms was aggressive. It was a culture of body-shaming, competition and bro-science. And going to the gym without guidance could be an immense waste of our most precious resource - Time!

The Nerd Gym was created to give the people an alternative fitness culture. The Nerd Gym's fitness culture is based on kindness, compassion, humor and fun! Our programs are science-based and designed to be time-efficient so that you can get back to doing the things you love!

For over 10 years I have been providing  private and small group fitness training for the people who could afford it.

I always told myself that once I made it big...THEN I could serve the people who can't afford it. I don't want to wait any longer. I still haven't made it big  but I am taking a massive leap of faith. I have faith that YOU will want to help.

My goal is to reach out through the world wide web to create a larger, stronger, more inclusive fitness culture!

  Together we can make this happen and help thousands of less fortunate people become healthier, stronger and more capable of spreading that love and joy to others!

My hope is that people who can still afford it will give generously so that I can continue to employ my staff of caring certified personal trainers. And, your generosity helps the people who can afford less can get a hand up!

We know the profound positive impact self care. We know that having a supportive community can make all the difference. Help us provide that to more people by joining our community at the membership level you can afford. 

All membership levels will allow for access to live online classes, meal plans and support. Higher membership levels will have access to more class times and extra perks for supporting the community!

Thank you!
 - Melanie Black
