In 2003, owners Lynn Grisham and Ben Cockman founded Mt Si Sports + Fitness with the intent of making it an inviting, family-oriented establishment with something for everyone, and that is just what they did.

Whether you simply want to walk on a treadmill while watching the Seahawks on TV or you want to train for the Ironman Triathlon, this is the gym for you.

“We provide an all-inclusive club that caters to every aspect of your fitness program,” explains Ben. “This is a fun business to be in. We take pride in being locally owned and operated and enjoy being active in our community.”

“We have folks here of all ages, all shapes and sizes and they include a lot of very nice people,” says Ben.

“The reality is, those members who learn about and embrace the principles of exercise and commit to being consistent, they usually find success. For us as gym owners, personal trainers or class instructors, playing a role in the process of helping someone be successful in achieving their goals is most gratifying. Exercise can truly make a difference in someone’s life!” says Lynn.

Are you interested in learning to exercise and use the gym but have little experience? No problem. When you join the club you receive a free orientation session with a personal trainer (a $55 value).

Train together

The trainers at Mt Si Sports + Fitness are experienced professionals that can help formulate and implement a new exercise program for you. It is important to adopt an approach to exercise that fits your lifestyle. Continuous effort—not strength or intelligence—is the key to unlocking your true potential. Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.

By scheduling consistent times to work out with an inspired and joyful group of people, and with professionally qualified trainers, you will not have to think about how or where you will fit in a work out in your busy day. It is automatic. Working out will become a regular part of your schedule and eventually an ingrained, empowering habit.

At Mt Si Sports + Fitness, exercise classes are free to members. They include a diverse mix of formats such as core-strength, yoga, spin cycling, Fatigue Friday, boot camp, Strength & Sculpt, the ever-popular Zumba, and more.

The yoga classes are among the many hidden gems at the club, particularly since they are now conducted in a brand new, warm yoga studio. The program includes Alignment Yoga, Hatha Fusion Yoga as well as Basic and Power Yoga. These classes focus on body position and fluid movements and transitions to build strength and improve flexibility. Yoga has no impact and compliments all types of training. The classes are led by instructors Samantha Pairis, Carlye Lowell and Nina Cambern.

Here is what some members have to say about some of the classes at Mt Si Sports + Fitness:

• “Core-Strength is therapy for my body as well as my mind! The increase in my strength and endurance has been significant. Monica and Kelley do a great job! I really look forward to the companionship of each class and the laughter doesn’t hurt either.”

—Peggy Rita

• “Boot Camp has been great for me! Nedra is amazing! She makes the class quite challenging and she’s always changing it up so my workout routine stays fresh. I now have more strength, energy and stamina to carry me through the day.”

—Margie Bridges

•  “Strength & Sculpt always leaves you with a feeling of accomplishment. Diann makes it very inviting and comfortable for everyone from beginner to accomplished athlete.  I truly look forward to every class.”

—Katie Sjoboen
