At Moxie, we help people look better. Feel better. Perform better. Live better. And just BE better overall. This is accomplished through programs and training methods that are evidence-based, safe, effective, diverse, and interesting.
At Moxie we adhere to a Four-Part Charter:
IN. THAT. ORDER.
the quality or state of being conscious or aware of something
a mental state achieved by focusing one's awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging one's feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
At Moxie we believe that exercise should not be an out-of-body experience; it should be an in-body experience. It is possible to merge awareness and physical exercise together as one. This allows you to experience the present moment during your physical activity.
Before beginning any workout, we pause and bring awareness to our physical form. Many people approach workouts at full force and don't slow down long enough to truly feel what's going on in their bodies. This brings us to the next step in the charter...
Mechanics refers to technique. Having good mechanics means moving yourself and external objects in the most efficient, effective, and safe manner possible. At Moxie we emphasize the importance of learning and mastering the movements before worrying about the intensity of the workout. Technique over intensity. Every. Single. Day.
There are two parts to the consistency piece. First, you must be consistent in performing the mechanics of the movements. And second, you must be consistent with the Moxie workouts. The number of training sessions per week is determined by many factors including training goals, age, general health, work capacity, nutritional status, recoverability, lifestyle, and other stressors. Research on training frequency indicates that the optimum training frequency for improvements in strength is three to five times per week. Training one or two times per week is sufficient for maintenance but if you are looking to feel better, perform better, live better, and be better, once or twice a week won't cut it. At Moxie, we don't settle for mediocrity. Neither should you.
Your intensity is relative to your physical and physiological tolerances (i.e.your current level of fitness) - It's working as hard as YOU can without overdoing it. That will vary from day-to-day and workout-to-workout. But, make no mistake, intensity gives us all the things we want from a fitness program (RESULTS!) in the shortest amount of time!
