"We Are Not A Gym"


When you visit Susan Finley at TrainSmarter in Mountain Brook, one thing is apparent. She is passionate about educating Birmingham on the importance of strength training to balance the body and she knows what she is talking about.


Susan has numerous certifications including Certified ChiWalking/ChiRunning Instructor, Gold Certified Personal Trainer, Corrective Exercise Specialist Certification, Certified TRX Courses (Suspension Training, Rip Training, & TRX Team), and NCFI Corporate Fitness Certification.

As we were chatting, I asked what made her gym different than others and she was quick to let me know that TrainSmarter is not a gym. Susan has worked to build a coaching facility that educates you about your body’s health as it relates to strength training, corrective exercise, healthy eating, and muscle balance.


TrainSmarter offers Personal Training and Group Fitness Classes for all levels. Susan and her team work with you to address any concerns or struggles you’ve had in the past to move forward to productive strength training and improved health & wellness.

One of my favorite parts about walking into TrainSmarter was Charlie. Charlie is 3 year old King Charles Spaniel that feels like silk and greets everyone that enters. He is very affectionate, but quick to retreat to his dog bed if you aren’t giving him attention.
