Ben Entenmann has constantly sought ways to improve his health and fitness throughout his career in athletics. After undergoing reconstructive knee surgery at 14 years old, massage therapy became an integral component of what was a successful recovery and ability to continue playing competitive sports. Following a collegiate soccer career at Wittenberg University, where he studied English, Biology, and Spanish, Ben found CrossFit in 2011 as a way to continue training and developing his "fitness". His interest in training led him to earn his CrossFit Level 1 certification in 2012, and he began coaching and competing in CrossFit while attending the University of Oregon. The constantly varied programming highlighted many of the weaknesses that had developed from a lifetime of sport-specific training, and the need to develop a more balanced, resilient foundation of physical fitness. Later that year Ben finished studies as a Master's of Education in Curriculum & Teaching, and from 2013-2016 taught English and Physical Education both in his home state of Oregon and across the world in Abu Dhabi, UAE, where he also coached and competed.
Returning home in 2016, it was clear that a change was needed to pursue a vocation to create a practice that blended physical training with restorative bodywork therapies. After attending Sage School of Massage & Esthetics in Bend, OR, REVIVE Bodywork & Personal Training began its mission in May 2017 to offer health and performance optimization through movement training and manual therapy.
Depending on each client's needs and goals, soft tissue bodywork techniques combined with targeted exercises to bring the body back into balance. The use of Functional Range Conditioning (FRC) principles guide the work in a measured, systematic fashion that maintains individualized treatment focus. Each session offers an opportunity to further educate clients the basics of self-care management strategies, empowering the individual to improve their own health and wellness. Embedding these practices with clients gives them the tools and knowledge they need to become more self-sufficient. At REVIVE the long-term goal with every client is to not only help them be revived, but to truly thrive!
