Learn About Michigan Elite Conditioning for Athletes (MECA), Royal Oak’s Premium Personal Training Experience

royal oak personal training facility

Founded in 2011 by strength and conditioning coach David Lawrence, MECA specializes in personal training for athletes as well as non-athletes. We provide the best possible personal training and strength coaching for each individual client.

Back in 2009, David Lawrence served as an assistant strength coach at the Poliquin Performance Center. There, he gained first-hand experience with Charles Poliquin’s methods, known as The Poliquin Principles. He saw how these principles produced better results for professional and Olympic athletes than any other program or facility at the time.

At the Poliquin Performance Center, David noticed people were making more progress in one offseason than most athletes made in an entire college career.

After taking more than 20 seminars and courses with Charles Poliquin, David started MECA based on those teachings and training methodologies—plus he added his own unique spin. He drew from his education and experience to create the successful process MECA trainers follow today.

Our coaches have worked with athletes in over 30 sports, including multiple athletes in the National Football League (NFL), National Hockey League (NHL), professional soccer and Olympic sports. On average, our clients make bigger gains in speed, strength and vertical jump in three months than they did in their last three to five years of training on their own or with a different program.

In 2015, MECA joined forces with Tri-Covery Massage and Flexibility, one of the Midwest’s best Fascial Stretch Therapy (FST) providers. This specialized offering makes our Royal Oak facility a one-stop shop for performance and recovery services, as well as personal training and coaching. Our personal training clients typically see more improvement in flexibility and range of motion in just one or two sessions with Tri-Covery, versus stretching on their own for 12 weeks.


MECA’s Mission

To elevate the level of sports performance and wellness in the state of Michigan by providing superior training and coaching.


We consider our training to be superior, and we leverage our mission statement above to elevate results beyond other options available in Royal Oak, Michigan, or the fitness industry at large.

It takes a highly specialized and personalized approach to get the best possible results unique to an individual. We are proud to provide that experience for our clients in Royal Oak and beyond.
