Who We Are

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.

May Bend

Head Coach and Co-owner

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.
