We help women and men lose weight, get strong, and feel the best they’ve felt in decades with a transformational combination of individualized workouts, personalized health coaching, powerful life-changing mindset work, and good old fashioned caring.

“Before joining The Transformation Club in Fall 2017, every time I lost weight it found its way back. I was constantly on the weight loss roller coaster. It turns out all that cardio I was suffering through wasn’t what I needed…
My experience at The Transformation Club has been truly life-changing! It is the most welcoming community and I have made so many friends. I’ve also learned so much about nutrition, exercise, and mindset. The Club’s approach to a healthy lifestyle and becoming the best version of yourself is like no other...and they really care about you as a person.

My results at The Transformation Club have been spectacular. I’ve lost 9% body fat and I feel the best I’ve ever felt. I am no longer on that roller coaster and I have a healthy relationship with food. My personal relationships have improved as well. Plus, I’ve learned to take better care of myself, which has made me a much happier person!

I feel so blessed to have The Transformation Club in my life. I will continue to be a member for years to come…”

We’re Justin & Janell Yule, owners of The Transformation Club in Chanhassen, MN, and we’re truly happy and grateful for the opportunity to serve you. 

First things first, we want to acknowledge you for being here and looking into joining us as a member of The Transformation Club.

Just by being on this page, you’re already in the Top 10%…

Seriously, the number of people who will do more than just think about improving their health and getting in shape is extremely low.  The number who will legitimately explore an option like you’re doing right now is even lower…

Our hats are off to you!  

Of course, now that you’re here, you may be wondering if you’re in the right place…

  • Is The Transformation Club the right fit for me?
  • Will I fit it?
  • Can they help me achieve MY goals?
  • I’ve failed before…why will this be different?
  • Can I even afford it?
  • Will I be able to fit it into my already busy schedule?
  • Are you “Covid-19 Safe?”

I mean, those are some really good questions so let’s start with those and see where it takes you…

Actually, let’s start with what we’ve found helping thousands of people achieve their goals and see if you resonate with them…

What we’ve found is that most people, especially those over 40, struggle with losing weight and feeling healthy.  They feel awkward and out of place at the gym so they make excuses to not go like “I’m too busy.” 

What they really want is to look and feel better, to have more energy, and increase their confidence.  They want to be able to keep up with their kids (and grandkids) for decades to come.  On top of that, they really don’t want to put their kids through the hell of taking care of them like they’re doing with their own parents. 

But they mistakenly think the problem is their weight and that health is a number on a scale.  So they end up going to weight loss boot camps, buying gym memberships they never use, or trying (and failing) to stay on a diet.  They never create strong health habits and end up right back where they started —— or worse. 

The real problem is that their mindset around health keeps them stuck with the same unsatisfying results they’ve always gotten, the underlying hormone imbalances that create the weight gain are never addressed, and their health continues to get worse. 

What they really need is to go beyond weight loss programs and diets to discover sustainable health by developing a new mindset and creating a few core habits that are the foundation of health and fitness.

“Before joining The Transformation Club, I was always worried to go to the gym and attend classes because I feared that I would stand out for being out of shape, not know what I was doing, or make a fool of myself. That is NOT the case at The Club. I never felt out of place from the first day I started. One of the nicest things about it is the trainers (and other members) really get to know you, make you feel welcome, and you feel validated for showing up.

I also feel accountable for coming back over and over because of the personal connection - consistency is key for results! Since joining The Club in mid-2018, I’m very pleased with what I’ve accomplished including improving my mental health and commitment to a fitness lifestyle. I’m able to keep up with my kids better, my mood has improved, and my overall physical health has improved. My biggest reward is that it has become a family affair - my husband joined and we’re in it together! The changes we’ve made for our family are amazing and the kids are noticing the difference as mom and dad lead by example.

I really like the flexibility of the schedule and the structure of the workouts. They take great care in the program design to make sure your muscles get worked in different and interesting ways throughout the week, and you never get bored!

If you are considering The Transformation Club, just do as they say - Have Faith & Take Action! There’s no harm in trying. It may be a good fit for you; it might not. But, you won’t know if you don’t try. I can guarantee if you do try it, you’ll feel welcomed, you’ll feel seen, and you’ll feel good. Giving myself the gift of taking time to better myself had been the best thing I could do for me.”
Julie Mattson

So, are we still on the same page?

Does it seem like The Transformation Club is a good fit for you so far?

If so, let’s keep going…

Will I Fit In

That’s an important question.

I mean, if you’re into working out to really loud, explicit music and you want to be “clanging and banging” advanced barbell exercises, that’s cool; there’s certainly a place for you… We’re just not it.

We’re also not a run club or social group (although we are social).

The Transformation Club is for people who want to work out in a friendly, safe, and supportive environment.  They’re willing to work hard while still having fun.

Members of The Transformation Club have a GROWTH MINDSET and are interested in learning about exercise, nutrition, and mindset.  They understand that the major, life-changing results come from more than just a few hours per week in a class.

Workout at The Transformation Club

“Before getting started with my workouts at The Transformation Club, I assumed the group training would be like high school gym class – I sucked at gym class! Fortunately, I was wrong. What won me over, almost immediately, was seeing that there were all body types, ages, and abilities. Not fitting in wasn’t an option because there was no cookie-cutter mold to fit in to. Everyone was different, which, in its own way, makes us all the same. And, people were actually nice, welcoming, and friendly – very much unlike high school gym class.

Since joining in 2018, I’m much stronger – not just in my body, but also in my mind. I’ve ceased to care so much what the number on the scale says. I know I’m doing the right things for my body and mind. And, I’ve made some pretty cool friends!”​

Julie Stende

“Before I joined The Transformation Club, I was very frustrated because I wasn’t getting the results I was looking for when I was a member of other gyms (I tried them all). I would join — work out — not get results — quit. That changed when I joined The Transformation Club way back in 2012… 

I’ve had amazing results (reduced body fat, increased muscle, boosted energy, improved sleep) and continue to stick with a regular fitness routine that makes me feel great. The friendships I’ve developed, along with the awesome trainers, also keep me from quitting.”

Julie Stuart

So, do you have an open mind?  Are you willing to challenge yourself?  Do you want to grow as a person?

Or, are you just looking for a quick fix program and/or a place to exercise a few times per week on your own and nothing more?

YES’s to the first set of questions means keep reading.

At this point, you might be feeling pretty good about purchasing a trial membership, but maybe you’d like to see some proof…

Being open since 2009 (and being a fitness professional since 1997), you can imagine we have a mountain of success stories...certainly more than you care to read or watch. Here’s just a small sample:

Injuries, Limitations, and Other Considerations

If you have none of these, you can skip this section.

We’d like to take a moment to address this important topic for those it pertains to, which, in reality, is most people…even us.

While we can’t address every specific situation here, know this…

We’re one of the best programs in the area when it comes to modifying and customizing workouts for our members.  We deal with everything from wrist inflexibility to knee replacements and everything in between.  We train breast cancer survivors, vertigo sufferers, people with RA, MS, chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, and more.

“Before coming to The Transformation Club, I would get injured doing other programs. After joining The Club, I quickly learned that those other programs were falling short on building my core strength. Now my fear of injury or having to stop exercising has disappeared. I’ve been going strong now at The Club since 2016! And, that strength has carried over to everything I do - from groceries to gardening, and especially skiing! I’m also happy to say that I dropped about 35 pounds and put on healthy, lean muscle. I’m down two sizes and I feel great! The Transformation Club has become part of my extended family. I would encourage anyone considering joining us - stop making excuses and start taking care of YOU!”
Elizabeth Kessler
“Before joining The Transformation Club, I pulled a muscle in my back. My doctor said, “Sometimes these things just don’t heal.” That sent me into a downward spiral. I was afraid to exercise and lost confidence. I just kept thinking I don’t want to injure it further so I did nothing. I took a chance and checked out The Transformation Club. They provided me the individualization I needed, and having professional eyes on my technique gave me the confidence to start moving, exercising, and LIVING again! Asking questions and getting answers was also really helpful - it gave me the hope and support I needed for my recovery. With the coaches’ help, I’ve gained so much strength and have the confidence to lead an active lifestyle again. It’s also really fun to be part of this health-focused community. Everyone is so kind and the support is always there.”
Amy Steffens
I had a number of fears when I first considered The Transformation Club… Will I be able to sustain my commitment to working out? The 20-minute drive. The monthly fee. The 4:45 am alarm. Will I be able to keep up? I felt from the beginning that there was ZERO pressure to keep up with anyone else. My anxiety about “doing the program” diminished with every alternative exercise option for my limitations (THANK YOU!). The drive and the alarm are irrelevant now. I love starting my day this way - I feel brighter and have so much more energy! When I first started, I had crippling pain going up a flight of stairs. I had a hard time getting off the floor and forget about doing a push-up… Now, after just 90 days, I can plank for over a minute, do 6 push-ups, and get through the entire Turkish Get-up! I have come to understand and appreciate with great confidence how much VALUE The Transformation Club provides. It is not just a place to work out. The additional education and coaching provided is MIND BLOWING to me. Your drive to change the fitness industry is to be applauded and should be emulated by everyone else in the industry. YOU GUYS GOT IT RIGHT!!! Can’t say it any louder or type it any larger!”
Pam Goon
“When I first started coming to The Transformation Club in 2013, I had a shoulder injury from years of tennis and also a history of lower back problems. I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to do the exercises or that they would increase my injuries. Fortunately, that wasn’t the case because they individualize everything and actually help you with corrective exercises. I also really appreciate the personal nature of The Transformation Club - everyone is friendly, they know your name, and they focus on your needs. Overall, it is just a much more personal and engaging experience than any other gyms I’ve worked out at. Today, I am so much stronger and I no longer worry about hurting myself. Besides physical changes like weight loss and improved muscle definition, there are daily life benefits that you might not think about - being able to rearrange furniture, carry heavy things, shovel snow, etc. My nutrition has also improved dramatically - I’m no longer addicted to soda or anything with artificial sweeteners! I really appreciate the camaraderie and the friendships I’ve developed at The Club, plus all the continuing education opportunities that are provided through seminars, workshops, courses, and our private Facebook group. It also feels good to support a family-owned, passion-driven business!”
Lea Jacobson

It goes back to YOUR willingness to improvise, adapt, and overcome.  If you have a growth mindset and are willing to put in the work, we’ve got you covered!

What If I Fail?

This is a question a lot of people ask themselves, and it dooms them from being successful…

They come this far and think, “Wow!  The Transformation Club sounds great!!  It sounds like exactly what I need.”

But, then their old limiting beliefs kick in and they ask some form of, “But, what if I fail…again?”

Without being overly cliche, there’s no such thing as “failure” if you keep on keeping on…  Plus, if you know the story “3 Feet From Gold” you know that most people quit before success has a chance to happen!

Beyond that though, the reason most people “fail” and give up is that they’re focusing on the wrong things… 

The difference between feeling worn down, low-energy, and overweight vs. having radiant energy, open-hearted confidence, and a body you love is just one simple shift you can make any time, anywhere, at any age.  We’re going to teach you that! 

“Before joining The Transformation Club, I always feared failing…again! It was the number one thing holding me back. Now, with the complete support from the staff and my fellow members at The Transformation Club, I don’t feel that way anymore. It also helps that there’s such a great community that’s working together; I don’t feel like I’m constantly comparing myself to others – how they look or how much better they are than me. It’s just not like that here. I can really tell the difference when I’m taking care of myself – I have the energy to keep up with my 3 kids, my mood is lighter and more positive, and being a mom is more fun and not as taxing. I’m also really enjoying all the mindset training. Now I feel like I can make my future what I want it to be. I have the power within myself to create the environment, to create the mentality, and to visualize what I want and to achieve it. I don’t just have to live with the consequences of the past; now I get to create my own consequences. The Transformation Club provides so much more than just great workouts. All those extras they pour into us are worth more than gold!”​

Andrea Adams

So, stop worrying about failing at something you haven’t even started yet…

Ok, But Can I Afford It?

That’s a fair question.  However, so is, “Can I afford not to do it?”

Let’s get something straight about the REAL cost of ignoring your health…

Most people make the mistake of focusing on “cost now” instead of looking at the long game and thinking about what their life will look like 10-20 years from now. 

If you want a sneak peek, just look at your parents’ or grandparents’ lives. 

By investing in your health now, you can:

  • Save thousands of dollars in hospital and doctor’s visits 
  • Save countless mind-numbing, soul-crushing hours waiting around in offices filling out paperwork
  • Save hundreds of dollars every month on endless prescription medications that you can’t even pronounce
  • Save the frustration and pain for your own children who need to take care of you and chauffeur you around from specialist to specialist to doctor to surgery to physical therapy appointment all because of the poor health choices you made today

Here’s the truth…

Investing in your health TODAY will save you tens of thousands of dollars over the next 10 – 20+ years. 

“I get all that.  And, I’m with you 100%.  However, I still need to know if I can make the payments?”

Absolutely.  This isn’t a free service.  There’s a monthly investment and if you can’t make it, that’s a sticking point.

For a limited time, your one-month trial membership is ONLY $97 for UNLIMITED ACCESS to our in-person sessions, online sessions, as well as our education, training, and coaching programs.  Ongoing membership is $200/month with no long-term commitment.  We do offer a BIG SAVINGS opportunity with a 12-month program – we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it.

If that works for you, great, click the button below:

If you’re a little hesitant, that’s fine.  Here’s some advice:

First, start with the trial membership.  It’s only $97 and you’ll get a LOT out of it.  Plus, it will give you some time to figure out your finances if you need to…

Second, almost every time we’ve helped someone in this situation they pretty easily find the $200/month being spent on non-essentials like expensive lattes, alcohol, dining out, and other things like that.  Heck, we’ve had people cancel their cable and even downgrade their automobile!  You just have to decide what’s more important to YOU…better health and fitness so you can get the most out of life OR those other things?

So, start with the trial and then make your decision about ongoing membership in a month.  Fair enough?

“I previously worked out in a facility where I had to pay for a club membership plus a group training membership, and the group training was only offered 3 days per week. This was frustrating. I also didn’t like that there was no assessment and modifications weren’t provided based on individual need. Basically, it was the exact opposite of what The Transformation Club provides – one fee, 6 days per week access with multiple time slots, and a personalized program. Now I’m consistent with my workouts and it shows. I also enjoy the friendships I’ve developed and the community here. I encourage you to give The Transformation Club a try…you won’t regret it.”

“When I first considered joining, I was hesitant about the fee.  However, I could see the value so I chose to make adjustments elsewhere, including canceling my cable TV.  I kept it up for a year until I was sidelined by an ankle injury (non-workout related).  I could have kept working out – they’re great at modifying – but I used the injury as an excuse…I realize now that I had forgotten my “WHY”.

After sitting on the sideline for about 8 months, I wanted to come back.  However, now I feared being judged and embarrassed for not keeping up with my fitness and going backward with my results.  I’m glad I rejoined because that fear wasn’t warranted; I was welcomed back without judgment.  🙂

Interestingly enough, right after I joined my uncle passed away suddenly.  This put me in a position to move my aunt and find care for her.  Couple that with the guilt I felt for not seeing to her every need and it would have been easy to give up again… BUT, the cards and reminders [from The Club] that I needed to take care of ME got me going.  Other gyms wouldn’t have done the same.  I’m so appreciative of that personal connection.  It’s kept me going strong since I got back in mid-2018 and will keep me going for years to come…

My parents both passed away at very young ages.  I WANT to be there for my husband, my now 26 and 31-year-old children, and my future grandbabies!  And, not just be “around”… I want to be the goofy grandma having water fights like I used to with my kids.  That’s my WHY.  That, along with the friendships and continuous encouragement from everyone at The Club, keeps me going even during the most difficult times life throws at us.”
