Hype You Up

Music is the basis of fitness movement. Their intention is to transport you to a music festival every workout! “As music festival enthusiasts, we wanted to create that atmosphere and we wanted to add the principle of physical training to that experience,” says co-founder Kenny Nguyen. You can expect bespoke playlists with everything from underground house to hip-hop to EDM. The music is played on a nightclub-quality sound system to really help get your heart pumping (and your fists racing). There’s no denying that loud, motivating music helps you accomplish a workout.

Fast and functional training is the motivation of Movement. Each workout is only 50 minutes long with a new goal depending on the day of the week. Whether you decide to go on a Tuesday for leg day, a Wednesday for mid-week cardio and abs, or a Friday for a slower lift, the day of the week you won’t want to miss is Saturday! Not only does Motion offer yoga, but the morning class is usually one big workout party! “Saturdays are really fun days; Kenny is having a big block party and we’re bringing in local vendors. It’s pretty amazing to watch,” says co-founder Ryan Hall.

The trainers of fitness movement are more than mentors guiding you through every workout. They are “EnterTrainers” who encourage, uplift and inspire you to become the best version of yourself. Imagine a group fitness class with a personal trainer feel. Regardless of class size, each coach learns to respond to each individual. “It takes time for the current Movement trainers to grow and become unique just as they are,” says Nguyen. If you are a coach interested in his dynamic coaching style, Movement always looking to add new artists to the team!

We have had members meet their business partners or wives here. It’s just breaking free from this fitness movement it’s following the protocols, following the system and trusting the journey. Everything is getting better,” Hall shares.
