Functional Range Conditioning

What makes motive training different?

Motive Training uses the best movement and assessment practices known to personal trainers in the fitness industry: Functional Range Conditioning (FRC).

FRC is a world-recognized system that will help you build muscle, improve joint mobility, and look and feel healthier than ever. Our entire staff has more than one FRC-based certification, from performing assessments to movement coaching.

We give you all the tools and coaching you need to improve how to move for good.

That's why we say we're the premier personal trainers in Grand Rapids and the best personal trainers in South Austin.

What we do

When you step into Motive Training, prepare to fine-tune the basics first. Then, we'll dig deep with you to elevate your fitness and health in ways you didn't know were possible.

We focus on exercises that improve painful joints, build a resilient body, and make you feel better than you ever have before. Our trainers can help you with:

  • Mobility (joint control)
  • Pain Mitigation (removing aches vs. working around them.
  • Muscle & Strength Gain (improving power, strength, lean muscle, and connective tissue)
  • Weight Loss (say goodbye to belly fat, and say hello to a new body)

Our mission is to get you to move with purpose in whatever way that means to you while still addressing our core philosophy around movement.
