About Us and our Fitness Center

Ed + Alison Edison's

"The mission of Edison's Smart Fitness is to be a resource in the community for those seeking an active and healthy lifestyle and to provide a life-changing opportunity for adults who want to improve their current activity levels, physical appearance and overall general health."


We are passionate about the importance and benefits of exercise and nutrition for healthy living, especially important as we age.


Our emphasis is on the importance of weight training along with aerobic activity, while focusing on healthy diet and nutrition choices.


The first Edison's Smart Fitness location was opened in 2015 in North Myrtle Beach, SC and Midland, MI was a natural choice for our newest location.



We strive to help our members and clients understand why weight training, healthy eating, and moderate aerobic activity is important for:


  • More energy

  • Improved physical capacity

  • Enhanced mental alertness

  • Increased positive feeling of well-being


Our goal is to help our members and clients make SMART choices in daily activities and diet, and that healthy lifestyle changes don't have to be difficult, but can actually be a lot of fun!
