This is How We Move

We are movement specialists who believe in addressing the ROOT causes of pain and injury before building performance.  We will never sell you a quick fix and set you up for failure. Instead, we discover how your body has been compensating and teach you how to move efficiently using evidence based methods, resulting in a strong foundation to build upon. Whether you want to train for a specific athletic event, achieve safe and lasting weight loss, or just move well in everyday life, we can help you finally reach your fitness goals.

Why we are different:

Other trainers and PT's isolate a joint or muscle and send you on your way.  We teach you how to integrate muscles into optimal movement patterns, resulting in LASTING pain relief.  If body composition is your goal, we use a holistic coaching approach to support your long term success.  

Fitness: We offer private training, small group private training, HIIT and Tai Chi.

No matter your fitness goals, our unique method of programming will get you there efficiently and safely.    

PT: Using evidence based methods, our PT Alex de la Paz teaches your body to align and strengthen, providing lasting and powerful results.


Custom Programming In Your Own Home

Live coaching via zoom with your own personal trainer!  Programs are designed utilizing equipment you have on hand- no need to buy anything new!  Custom workouts tailored to your specific goals and movement patterns.


Feel Amazing In YOUR Body!

We begin with a detailed one on one assessment to determine your aesthetic and functional goals.  Our coaches then develop a workout specifically for you that will build stability, strength and endurance safely and effectively. At this point you and your trainer will decide whether private or small group sessions are the optimal choice for you. Small group sessions are under the supervision of a knowledgeable trainer along side up to 4 other members, building a supportive and accountable community.  We educate and encourage you so you leave every session feeling empowered and confident knowing your making the steps to lasting change. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation! 


Align and Strengthen

All clients start Physical Therapy with a 75-90 minute evaluation by a Doctor of Physical Therapy. At this time they will give you a diagnosis and prognosis, along with an anticipated plan of care that meets you where you need to be met. Follow-up sessions will be approximately 60 minutes and will include treatment consisting of some combination of the following: corrective exercise, manual therapy and habitual posture/movement awareness training. In order for Physical Therapy to be successful there needs to be a clear goal in mind with strong adherence and commitment to the plan of care by both the client and the therapist. We accept most insurance and will bill your plan directly. Contact us today to schedule a free consultation! Or visit Root & Branch Physical Therapy for more info.


Energize and Revitalize

Tai Chi Chu’an is a moving meditation that strengthens balance, flexibility, coordination, and the expansion of the breath. The style introduced by H. H. Lui to the Cloud Hands West group is best described as Tai Chi for those who enjoy Yoga. We aim to quiet the mind and stay present in the now.


More Calorie Burn For Your Buck!

High Intensity Interval Training burns more calories AFTER the workout than steady state cardio alone, meaning you’ll be a fat blasting machine for hours after, not just during your workout.  Interval Training allows you to achieve the same physiological results in a shorter period of time. Our trainers keep it fun and safe while you push yourself and discover your strength. If you want to take your athletic performance to the next level, come try a class today!
