Our main goal is to offer expertise and give the community what they want, so for the first couple of months we will gear each class to the demographic who shows up.

Women's Excellence in Wellness, powered by Movestrong, is located at 1410 S. Lapeer Rd. and represents a partnership between local physicians and fitness experts.

Adrienne LeGasse Montgomery, the 27-year-old Lake Orion resident and business co-owner, opened Movestrong as a second location for her first fitness center, Movestrong, DeClaire Medicine for Movement in Rochester Hills.

While both fitness facilities are partnerships with separate medical practices— Jeffrey DeClaire M.D. of The DeClaire LaMacchia Orthopaedic Institute and Jonathan Zaidan M.D. of Women's Excellence in Lake Orion, Movestrong Lake Orion offers something a little different.

"I'm very excited to offer the Lake Orion community a space to have group fitness classes because that was something I was looking for as a new resident last year and couldn't find," Montgomery said. "Our main goal is to offer expertise and give the community what they want, so for the first couple of months we will gear each class to the demographic who shows up."

Each class will be modified according to beginner, intermediate and advanced fitness levels, Montgomery said, dependent on age, medical history and fitness ability of the participants. Each of the group fitness teachers will be certified through either the American College of Sports Medicine or the National Academy of Sports Medicine.

Between strength training classes and weight classes, aerobics, cardio and yoga, Montogmery believes there is a class for everybody. Beginners can breath easily too, knowing there will be basic classes to teach correct form and foundational movements.

"This means a lot to our practice," Dr. Zaidan said, a board certified obstetrician and gynecologist and owner of Women's Excellence, which offers several entities for women's health in the same plaza. "I think it's important to have someone who really understands fitness from A-Z as opposed to somebody who just understands the health care. Adrienne has a wealth of experience in fitness, and that is somewhere we can coexist—we can provide the health care component and she will provide the fitness care."
