Train Smarter for Better Results

Catherine F.

Mom & Sales Professional

At first I was skeptical that doing less would give me better results...

Capital Strength taught me the most efficient way to get the lean and toned look I wanted: Real Strength Training. It changed my entire physique and my mindset around my body and health.

James M.

Sales Professional

I got noticeable results and I feel better than I ever have before...

Extremely well thought out training plan for the beginner or experienced weight lifter. Whatever your goals are, these trainers are top notch, experienced and knowledgeable about nutrition, proper form, and muscle building.

Larissa M.

Tech Professional & Mom

At 44, I'm in the best shape of my life and indebted to the Capital Strength Team...

I can out-lift my 16 year old son and outlast both my 10 year old and 7 year old. Perhaps most surprising (considering my age) I get compliments on my derrière quite often. The best result? My doctor is very pleased with my low heart rate, low blood sugar, low blood pressure, bone density, and muscular frame

About The Owner, Matt McLaughlin

Matt started Capital Strength & Conditioning in 2012 because Raleigh was missing a private gym for the type of training that gets superior results. An exclusive environment focused on Body Recomp & Functional Performance Through Strength Training.

After a decade of training over 800 clients, Matt and his team developed the Capital Transformation System. The proven 3-point system that helps you get leaner, stronger and healthier. Guaranteed.

It doesn't matter if your just getting started, or you're a veteran to the gym... Capital Strength will help you train up, teach you the techniques for safe results, and hold you accountable every step to achieving your goals.

Laura S.

Dietitian & Entrepreneur

The best investment to keep me feeling strong and fit...

I’ve been training at Capital Strength for almost 6 years now. It’s been the best investment to keep me feeling strong and fit while keeping my workouts injury-free and highly effective. I love knowing that I can get great results lifting just 2-3 days per week, versus what used to take me 5-6 days per week.

Your Personal Training Experience

How much is your time worth? We think a lot. That’s why wasting it is unacceptable.

How much is your health worth? We know it's priceless. That’s why you must invest in it.

At Capital Strength, we value your time & health as your most precious assets. That’s why we take the most direct approach to get you results: Proper Strength Training & Smart Nutrition.

Our training is not cheap. Our facility is private. Our trainers are professionals. And, our clients demand an environment and level of service that keeps them safe, focused, and on track to their goals. 

Comparable 1-on-1 personal training can cost over $1,400/month. And, while your health & fitness are worth that much—That's usually outside what most people are ready to invest.

The good news? We’ve created a way to provide world class training at a superior value.

Whether you are just starting out or have years of experience, the Capital Team is a BIG resource

I've been lifting weights for 25 years and have learned more from Coach Matt and his trainers than anywhere else I've trained.  They are all experts and understand the small refinements that can take you to the next level.  

Hagan F.
