How can better movement impact your life?

Most people struggle with medical conditions, injuries, achy joints, chronic back pain, and stress from all aspects of life. We want to remove as many barriers as possible to get you moving better so you can enjoy the things you love to do. And we want to do it in a way that leads to real, sustainable change.

What should you focus on to get the best results possible?

At Motive, we aren’t about just working around the areas that hurt. We want to help you fix it and move better. We use the Functional Range Assessment (FRA®) to examine your body on a joint-by-joint basis so we know exactly what to tackle and why.

Wellness isn't meant to be pursued alone.

At Motive, our trainers provide more than just workouts for clients. We keep up with you outside of the gym. Your goals are our goals.

What does progress look like?

Clients at Motive Training become stronger, more resilient, and healthier because we provide all the tools they need to see and feel change, and we do it in a way that’s completely customized to them.  

Motive was built off of these five pillars, and they continue to lay the foundation for clients and staff alike.

  1. Move with Purpose 
  2. Do more with less 
  3. No pain= MORE gain 
  4. Leaver better than you came 
  5. Always be a student 

These pillars keep us focused on what is going to help move the needle.

Embrace Your Unique Body

Exclusively Inclusive.

Motive’s goal is to be inclusive and accessible to anyone that is serious about improving and seeking wellness in our community. We provide opportunities to remove barriers to creating a lifestyle of purposeful movement in Grand Rapids.

Personal Training

At Motive, we know every client’s needs are different, so we go out of our way to accommodate and customize everything to see the best results possible.

Each member at Motive has a unique program designed for their body. We create everything you need to be successful outside of the gym.


Kinstretch is a group class that helps every person develop maximum body control, flexibility, and USABLE ranges of motion in a way that still addresses their individual needs.  You will walk away from every Kinstretch class feeling stronger, more resilient, and more mobile than you ever thought possible.
