Certified in group exercise, Kori heads the studio’s drop-in Zumba classes and specializes in teaching first-timers and those who are returning to exercise after extended breaks. During the energetic, dance-based fitness routine, exercisers move and shake to the pulsing rhythms of Latin and international dance music while burning calories, having fun, and attempting to dance faster than their mirror reflections.
A trio of seasoned trainers helps oust unwanted fat and chisel muscle during Muvement’s weekly boot camps. Designed to mesh with the body’s natural range of motion, Muvement’s functional fitness curriculum plows through the plateaus of traditional exercise with an ever-changing routine. Trainers incorporate such bulk-building equipment as kettlebells, medicine balls, suspension trainers, and Acme-brand anvils in a circuit that challenges all ages and levels of fitness-floor prowess. Each intense session is believed to stoke the metabolic bonfire for up to 48 hours, planting lean-muscle seeds in cleared body fields. With classes capped at 15 clients, trainers can help participants tweak individual technique and form a perfectly sized Gaelic-football team. Today’s Groupon also includes a nutrition consultation using Metabolic Typing (a $85 value), perfectly pairing exercise routines with customized eating plans.
Muvement is as much a gym as it is a physical-fitness lab. Certified strength and conditioning specialist Michael Houle and Jill Houle, who holds a BS in nutritional science, team up to invest clients with practical workout regimens and an intimate knowledge of how the body works on a physiological level. Before new clients lift their first weight at the studio, a personal trainer consults with them about their exercise and health history and runs physical assessments and lab tests to identify potential obstacles related to the immune, digestive, hormonal, and detoxification systems. Next, Jill draws on her background as a professional nutritionist to recommend a diet suited to the client’s unique metabolism, and explains how the body breaks down calories and nutrients. Even their fitness regimens take a holistic approach. Whether in group or personal-training sessions, functional movements using resistance bands, TRX suspension, and kettlebells incorporate multiple muscle groups and joints into each exercise, building a physique more balanced than two eggs riding a seesaw during the spring equinox.
