We’re a gym for people that need help feeling good in gyms.

Are you a #Gymtrovert?

Need help focusing on your workouts? Are you not into the line-ups, people watching, bad music & the distractions of a traditional gym? Want to be away from groups of people until you feel a bit more comfortable lifting? Do you just want to be in the moment and get good at getting strong?

You might be a Gymtrovert :) and we've proudly built our small-box gym around YOU. It’s a very well-equipped space with a great staff, where our diverse clients can focus on themselves, break past barriers, and get real results. Every personality, every individual, every skill level can get stronger here.

If you’re looking for a space to focus and succeed…maybe you’re one of us.

Personal & Semi-Private Training, Group Classes, Kinesiology, Heavy Lifting, Strength Training, Fundamental Movement, Youth Programs, Senior Fitness.

Get strong your way.

Ryan Wolman   After a career in advertising, selling people crap food and bad products they never needed or wanted, Ryan got sick of making people sick and decided to do a total 180 choosing to use his 10+ years of strength training and powerlifting experience to help others understand their potential, get strong and feel confident in a gym.  Ryan’s practice encompasses everyone, but I especially enjoy working with LGBTQ2+ people who might find find fitness spaces intimidating and need help finding their home in the gym or moving past any barriers that stop them from getting stronger.

Scott Tate   I learn by doing, playing and exploring.  With two kids at home, 100+ students and clients in my classes and sessions I get lots of time to play and explore. As your guide to using strength to achieve your goals, I’ll push you, and pull from the experience of watching 100s of people lift millions of pounds to make sure you’re both safe, and taking enough risk to fight your disease, develop your skills and achieve your goals.

Deniece Bell   Deniece has been a high level athlete for 20+ years which has lead to a career in Phys-ed and youth fitness education. Over those years Deniece has committed herself to the truth that health and fitness is about the physical, mental, and emotional journey that starts the day you open your eyes.  It’s the long race that counts, not the sprint and there’s hurdles along the way It’s a lot easier to run when you have the support and wisdom of family and community along the way and that’s what brought her into the #Motusfamily.  Deniece’s goal is to provide safe and challenging change in her clients’ life that helps them to move well, build fundamental strength, inside and out and have a laugh or two along the way.  Deniece enjoys working with everyone, but as a brand new mom is especially interested in connecting with parents who want to get some quality time to themselves and need flexibility in their schedule to fit their practice in.
