We are Chris and Annie Mello. We’ve been in the fitness industry for more than 20 years — we actually first met at the gym in 2001. We co-own and operate CPMFITness. We’ve been married since 2007 and have young twin boys.
We believe everyone should want, need, and deserve a fit, healthy, and energetic body. As working professionals and parents, we understand how challenging it can be at first to take control of your fitness, but how your life will be transformed when you do.

You can try out a class when you are ‘pre-qualified’. We are a coaching-driven program. We require that we get to know you — your history, where you are now in terms of your fitness, your goals, and everything relevant for us to work together.
To do that, we need to go through our assessment phase. If you are “already fit,” you would have the opportunity to “test out” of the Fundamentals Program (see next question).
Have you been regularly squatting, dead lifting, and pressing? How about snatching and cleaning dumbbells? Climbing ropes?
We have established (high) movement standards that you must meet in order to gain entry to our regular group classes. If you are competent at performing basic gymnastics movements, the power and Olympic lifts, and are already fit, you may be a candidate for testing out of the Fundamentals Program and jumping into group classes.
Contact us to learn about our programs and your options for getting started.
Absolutely not! This is exactly why we have you go through our Assessment Phase. We can find out your exact goals and needs. From there, we can create a custom Fundamentals Program and focus on what you need most to find the fastest and most sustainable path to getting in your best shape. We teach our clients how to lift weights, gain strength and flexibility, lose weight, and how to scale and modify workouts. You will then be fully equipped with everything you need to join our group classes and take full advantage of the intensity and community.
If you are really worried about this, read this article. But the short answer is no, lifting weights will not bulk you up. In fact, it will help you burn even more calories and look great.
Important question! Yes — we have two showers and provide towel service.
