Meet our Coaches

You're never on your fitness journey alone.

Chad Kulchinski

Owner / Head Coach

Growing up in rural Oklahoma he learned the value of effort and diligence. From a young age, he was taught that hard work pays off and that working hard AND smart pays off even more. He has made that concept the foundation for the way he leads his life.

Chad graduated from Northeastern State University in 2012 with a Bachelor’s in Exercise Science. A couple years later, he went on to receive his Master’s in Education.

After deciding to let go of his meat-head cynicism, Chad found CrossFit in 2010 and will still tell you today it was the best decision of his life – aside from convincing his beautiful wife, Christina, to marry him.

Chad’s mission as the leader of CrossFit Midpoint is to educate and push you out of your comfort zone because he believes that is where the most progress in fitness, and in life, is made.

Chance Hugh

Coach

Originally from Pennsylvania, Chance moved to Arkansas to pursue a Bachelors in Mathematics from Southern Arkansas University, and followed that by earning a Masters in Mathematical Science from the University of Arkansas of Little Rock. He currently works as a Data Analyst for the Windstream Communications.

Chance has always been active in sports and fitness. In high school he played club side soccer for a Pennsylvania Select Side which traveled around the United States, and eventually earned a 4th place finish in the 2003 National Championship Tournament.

During his college career, Chance was a member on the Southern Arkansas University Rodeo Team as a Team Roper. He currently plays on the Little Rock Rugby team who finished 4th in the nation during the 2014 season, and also represented the US on the South Select Side from 2012 – 2013.

After watching the CrossFit Games on ESPN during the Summer of 2012, Chance decided to leave his old school bodybuilding gym and try out it out. Over two years later, he will be the first to tell you that it has been the best decision he could have made. CrossFit has not only gotten him in the best shape of his life, but he has also gained many lifelong friends along the way.

Ben Rushing | CrossFit Midpoint Coach

Ben Rushing

Coach

A native Texan, Ben’s athletic background is life long soccer and cross country in high school. In 2010 Ben moved to Fayetteville, Arkansas to attend the University of Arkansas. He graduated with a degree in biochemistry, then moved to Little Rock in 2015. He currently works as a clinical research assistant for the Arkansas Heart Hospital.

In 2010 he began classic bodybuilding and weightlifting work outs and in 2013 he was invited to try Crossfit from a local affiliate owner. The community and competition that Crossfit provided were like nothing he had experienced. Ben quickly became obsessed and loves what Crossfit stands for.

Bens coaching focus is on the core belief of Crossfit as a training methodology. That any person, regardless of ability, can better themselves through persistence and patience.

Ethan McCullar

Coach

Whether it was football and baseball at a young age, rodeo through his high school days, or weight training in college; Ethan has been involved with sports in some way or another his entire life.

During his residency for medical school, Ethan married his best friend, Lauren, and they were blessed with a beautiful son named Ty. Ty has had his share of medical issues and needless to say that Ethan’s fitness goals got sidetracked at times.

Ethan found CrossFit in 2012 and never looked back. He feels that CrossFit has not only made him grow and develop physically, but also as a husband, father, and person.
