Brian and Andy helped me overcome a herniated disc that had me in pain 24/7. Within a few visits I was back to working out at full capacity without pain. Brian also helped me improve my run stride and movement of my posterior chain in the process. I'm stronger, faster, and healthier now having worked with them than I was before the injury.

I have been working out in this studio with the guidance of personal trainer, Andy Greene for years, and have been extremely pleased. He plans a personal workout routine geared toward my ability and fitness goals, changing it up weekly. He challenges me to push myself just the right amount. The atmosphere in the studio is always upbeat, and all the staff members are so friendly and supportive. The experience is really nothing like going to a gym, and keeps me going back week after week. Visiting Balanced Movement Studio, for me, is absolutely the key to regular exercise and continued good health. I highly recommend it, especially if you are someone who has a hard time self-motivating to exercise.
