CenterPointe athletes are trained in strength, mobility, power and endurance. Unlike at most gyms, our athletes work under the guidance of skilled trainers. We believe quality coaching in constantly varied functional movement leads to the best results and fewest injuries. Ours is a fitness that allows us to take on the challenges of any workout and everyday life.
At CenterPointe you are more than a number and you will always be asked to work hard. In return, you will be coached in a safe environment where you will learn the fundamentals with proper form while being inspired to move beyond your comfort zone. At CenterPointe you will have an athletic family and build a support system like none other.
Contact Head Coach May Bend (email@example.com) for a Free One-on-One Session or come to our Introductory Class (offered every Saturday at 10am).
Our individual coaching in a focused, positive group setting. Every group session includes a warm up, technique instruction, and a workout. Each group session is different from the one before and every group session is structured so that whatever your fitness level you can participate. Intensity is relative to each athlete. Our experienced coaches scale weight, movements and repetitions while moving everyone forward on the same program. Group classes are held 7 days a week and capped at 10 to ensure everyone gets plenty of individualized attention.
Yoga & Mobility is designed specifically for CenterPointe. It's a power based class that will test your endurance, strengthen your core, and improve flexibility. Alternatively, you will learn postures that will enhance your recovery process between classes. Most importantly, a steady yoga practice will help to prevent injury while training.
Kettlebells are an extremely useful piece of functional movement equipment that, when used correctly, can increase strength and power, improve cardiovascular efficiency, and decrease body fat.
Used in a variety of ways, kettlebells can also enhance an athlete's endurance, achieving cohesive development of all muscle groups and improving overall health.
If you're looking to increase more than just the size of your muscles, and want to boost your brain power while creating a highly functional, lean and solid physique, then kettlebells are for you!
Starting Pointe (SP) will gradually introduce you to the basics of functional movement while improving your cardiorespiratory conditioning. Each day will include a skill session dedicated to teaching you the proper biomechanics of the functional lifts (squat, deadlift, and press) and a workout designed to enhance endurance. All new members must complete a minimum of 2 weeks (6 sessions) of SP before beginning Raise the Bar.
* Starting Pointe will be scheduled based on participants' schedules.
Raise the Bar (RtB) is where we put it all together, with intensity. In addition to basic gymnastics, squats, deadlifts and presses, you will be introduced to various handstand and pull up progressions and to the snatch and clean & jerk, two of the most dynamic functional movements in sport. RtB classes are on the clock and include varying bouts of intensity to further overall conditioning, strength and power, fine tuning your body’s spatial awareness and ability to move correctly under a variety of physical challenges. Before and after each class, athletes employ mobility techniques to release tension, improve movement and speed recovery. Please note that successful completion of Starting Pointe and a minimum attendance of 3 days/week are requisites for training in RtB.
There is no substitute for personal attention. A private session is you and a coach working one-on-one to improve your athletic ability. Special attention is paid to your individual goals and programming needs.
MAT is a very specific, non-medical, and bio-mechanically based process of evaluating and treating muscular imbalance. The goal of MAT is to increase the contractile capability of your muscles, resulting in greater efficiency of individual muscles. Doing so allows you to experience more strength, stability, range of motion, and reduced muscle and joint pain.
During Muscle Activation Techniques (MAT) sessions our Specialist will work to assess and optimize your muscular system, enhancing your recovery from workouts and/or injury and thus enabling improved performance in everyday and physically intense functional movements.
I am a product of rural Minnesota and its unlimited supply of lakes, open spaces, and wooded trails. As a high school and collegiate athlete, I faced the challenges of being too tight, too weak, and too uncoordinated to keep up with my ambitions. I was drawn to the weight room because it offered a way to change this.
While a Master Trainer and Spinning Instructor at Washington Sports Clubs, I saw folks come in and do the same thing, again and again, and never change. I knew there was a better way. When I began to focus exclusively on functional movement exercises, I never looked back. After earning additional training certifications in Olympic Lifting, Gymnastics, and Kettlebells I began to see lasting fitness breakthroughs in my clients and myself. The equipment is simpler, the movements are more complex and the results are more dramatic.
As an athlete and coach, I believe in pursuing training that prepares us for the physical challenges our bodies were built to face every day. Nothing fulfills me more than sharing my knowledge and helping athletes grow stronger and meet their fitness goals, whether it’s performing a first full-range-of-motion pull-up, deadlifting twice their bodyweight, or hitting a new personal best in a triathlon or mile run. At CenterPointe, we believe that actively committing to strength and physical well-being is the key to living a balanced, joyful life.

Functional movements are those that mimic motor recruitment patterns found in everyday life. For example, squatting is standing from a seated position; deadlifting is picking any object up off the ground with a neutral spine. Because they are mechanically sound, functional movements are safe. Best of all, functional movement practiced at high intensity elicits neuroendocrine adaptations (hormonal and neurological changes) such as increased muscle mass and improved bone density.
