The business that we all know and love as Exercise Inc actually started in 1993 as Railey Personal Training. I changed to name to Exercise Inc in 2004 because I wanted the business to have a team approach, focused around everyone and not just my name.
In the 17 years we have been in business we have always gotten great results for our clients, but in the last 5 years those results have been better than I ever imagined. What is more amazing is how our approach has changed.
I used to require clients to strength train 3 times a week and do "cardio" for minimum of 30 minutes at least five times a week.
I have always tried to make our program better, which is what got us to our current exercise program of 20 minutes once a week. Continue reading
One of the great things about Exercise Inc is the longer we do this the more we know we are on the right track. We see this in the number of clients who lose fat, get stronger and just feel better. We also see this in the fact that lots of new scientific research keeps confirming that 20 minutes once a week is all the exercise most of us need.
Last April we were fortunate enough to have Body By Science author, Dr. Doug McGuff, visit us to do a lecture and a book signing. The great thing about Dr. McGuff is the fact that he is an emergency room physician who has a passion for high intensity strength training. Continue reading
I hope 2009 was as great for you as it was for us at Exercise Inc. We started the year with a written plan to accomplish several goals. Our biggest goal was to open a location on the north side. We did it!

Good goals stretch you. They make you reach for something that’s just beyond your reach. Continue reading
Well here we are, in the middle of the holiday season. Hopefully this means spending more quality time with family and friends and doing something meaningful for your church or your favorite charity.
For most of us it means lots of opportunities to eat. The average American gains 3 to 5 pounds between Thanksgiving and New Years. It’s not the feast you have for your Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner that causes the weight gain; it’s constant consumption of extra calories throughout the season.
So here are four quick tips to help you make through the holidays without any extra baggage. Continue reading
It’s been an exciting year at Exercise Inc. In 2009 we opened a new studio in Zionsville, launched a new website and McGraw Hill published a new book about our program. At the same time we have continued to help hundreds of clients get stronger, have more energy, lose weight and just feel better.
If you haven’t read the book Body by Science, you are missing the best material ever published on the subject of exercise. The author, Dr. Doug McGuff, is an emergency room physician who also owns his own personal training studio.
In the book Dr. McGuff shares some of the latest research on exercise and explains how this research relates to the average person who simply wants to improve their quality of life through safe, efficient exercise. Continue reading
