Other Staff Members


Meredith Nelson has a varied and extensive history in the fitness industry. Starting in the 80's and carrying 30 extra pounds, Meredith gradually developed a love of all things active – especially running, weight-lifting, yoga, and cycling. But she doesn't stop there – hiking, adventure sports, and drinking fine wine (that's an activity, right?!) all bring her joy. Back in the day, you might have caught Meredith teaching Step or Hi-Lo (of course, sporting a thong leotard and wearing hi-tops – but with any luck all photographs have been destroyed!). These days, you'll find her running or cycling outdoors, weight-lifting, doing yoga, or playing golf during her downtime; however, she also gets her thrills putting others through a grueling indoor cycling class, weight-training workout, or Boot Camp. Ask her about weight loss and she'll talk for hours – after all, she's been there and lives it every day.

Bringing fitness to the mainstream was her goal when Meredith opened PrimeTime Fitness in 2000. With a Masters Degree in Rehabilitation Counseling, Meredith's original goal was to incorporate fitness into the lives of those with disabilities. She continues to provide a haven for anyone, regardless of age or ability, to pursue their fitness goals. After 15 years of offering the residents of Sullivan's Island a place to go for all their fitness needs, PrimeTime Fitness relocated just off the island in Mt. Pleasant in December 2015.

Certified through AFAA in Group Fitness, ACE as a Personal Trainer and Medical Exercise Specialist, and the Titleist Performance Institute as a Level 3 Golf Fitness Instructor, Meredith is well qualified to help you achieve your fitness goals. Just remember, Meredith says... "no effort, no results." If you're willing to put in the effort, and do it consistently, Meredith can help you achieve results!
