BACKGROUND: A year and a half ago, Head Coach Adam Blandford set out to create a space for athletes to train like athletes, without gimmicks, and with the support of dedicated coaches. He launched Lift Zone to offer smart, simple programming, and a place for you to work your ass off.

CanAm, with an expanded facility, builds on Adam’s high performance background as part of the US national Bobsled team and experience training collegiate and national level athletes (the “AM”). It also builds on Andy’s 15 years as Strength & Conditioning coach for Carleton’s Men’s Basketball team, (13x nat’l champs) and other varsity and professional athletes.

Coach Adam is so proud of what we have accomplished with our athletes in the last year. We have coached, trained and programmed athletes from all ages from Baseball, Basketball, Bobsled, Hockey, Football, Olympic Lifting, Rugby, Soccer, Sprint Triathlons, Track, Volleyball, and Ultra Marathons. Many of which play at collegiate or national/international level. Outside of competitive athletes, we have had the distinct pleasure to work with people looking to set and achieve their own health and fitness goals. It has been an amazing ride so far!

  • 40 yds of turf
  • Team training and open gym style weight room
  • Dedicated space for classes
