Center Mass Training started as "pipe-dream" in 2014, as an avenue for customers to gain basic skills with their firearm handling. Since then, it has grown to be a leader in Self-Preservation, Crime-Prevention, Marksmanship, and coursework for any interest. With extensively stacked credentialing that you will not find anywhere else in this area, Tina started this business with a clear determination to ensure that NOBODY would be apprehensive when going about their lives, or in fear of becoming a victim. After having her own run-ins with less than desirable people and being a victim of crime and Domestic Violence, she has prided herself in offering classes and a wide variety of training, with a level of teaching that far-surpasses the norm. The testimonials speak for themselves. Whether you want to carry a firearm and take the SLED course to do so, enhance the skills you have, build the skills you wish you had, or want to just become more aware and prepared; there is a class for you. Every student receives constant support and encouragement, no matter how much time they need. She is devoted to giving top-notch classes, coupled with real-life experience and an engaging dynamic so that students are well-versed when they leave. You can rest assured that if you set a goal, Tina will motivate, embolden, and empower you to tackle it and achieve it. The main focus is to be proud of the goals you set for yourself when it comes to your training, and Center Mass Training is here to guide you through to the end and beyond!
