KNOWLEDGE, EXPERIENCE & PASSION

Tracey Mahaney is a strength and endurance athlete, author, motivator, foodie, nutritionist, and performance dietary specialist based out of Pennington, NJ. With multiple certifications and over 20 years of experience in the fitness industry in a variety of outlets, she has the ability to relate to and assist a wide variety of individuals seeking self-improvement through exercise, fitness, and nutrition. Tracey has dedicated her career and her life to improving people’s lives by giving them the tools to live a more health- and fitness-focused lifestyle. She achieves this through progressive and systematic training methods, neural reconditioning, and the application of strategic and goal-focused nutrition.

SAFE, EFFECTIVE, SCIENTIFICALLY VALID PROGRAMS

Today, more people work in offices, have longer work hours, use better technology and automation, and are required to move less on a daily basis. This new environment produces more sedentary people, and leads to dysfunction and increased incidents of injury including chronic disease, low-back pain, knee injuries, and other musculoskeletal injuries. In working with today's typical client, who is likely to be deconditioned, the fitness professional must use special consideration when designing fitness programs.

 

It is important to note that deconditioned does not simply mean a person is out of breath when climbing a flight of stairs or that they are overweight. It is a state in which a person may have muscle imbalances, decreased flexibility, or a lack of core and joint stability. All of these conditions can greatly affect the ability of the human body to produce proper movement and can eventually lead to injury. At Moxie, we use an integrated approach to create safe programs that consider functional capacity for each individual person.

INDIVIDUALIZED, RESULTS-DRIVEN PROGRAMS

The Moxie Hybrid Training System focuses on the mind as much as the body and is built on a foundation of principles that progressively and systematically allows any client to achieve optimal levels of mental, physical, performance, and physiologic adaptations. We’ll use the information that we gather from your Comprehensive Fitness Assessment to come up with a smart, strategic and targeted action plan that suits YOUR goals, fitness level, readiness, and ability to execute. We'll break down your big, year-long goals into monthly goals, your monthly goals into weekly goals, and your weekly goals into daily actions. 

 

Here's the best part: Every 1-on-1 Personal Fitness Training Session can be done in the comfort of your home (via Zoom). Minimal space and equipment are required.

A WORKABLE PLAN OF ACTION

If you want to achieve your goals, then you need a workable plan of action that integrates all components required to ensure your success. At Moxie we utilize Hybrid Training Systems...

  • Designed so that different training disciplines could be integrated into one training model. These training diciplines include flexibility training, cardiorespiratory training, core training, balance training, plyometric (reactive) training, and resistance training.

  • Designed to correct muscle imbalances, increase flexibility, and improve core and joint stability to improve the ability of the human body to produce proper movement and avoid injury. 

  • Designed to progress exercise participants safely and logically, providing a strong foundation (literally) before introducing strength or power moves. Too often, trainers and clients skip the stabilization phase, opting for more exciting and dynamic movements which typically results in frustration, burnout and/or injury.

  • Built on a foundation of principles that allows any client to achieve optimal levels of physiologic, physical, and performance adaptations.

INDIVIDUALIZED SUPPORT & ACCOUNTABILITY

Many people try - and fail - repeatedly because they don't have the accountability or support system required to make the lifestyle changes necessary to not only achieve their goals but to maintain them for life. We'll start with you – your life, needs, and goals. Then we’ll develop a personalized plan to help you eat, move, and live better – in a way that fits into your real, everyday life.

 

Everything we teach you will be in direct support of a daily practice or habit that you are working on. But our coaching goes beyond education alone… We have found the coach/client relationship to be just as important – creating a connection, communicating, and making a client feel supported. Your 1-on-1 Personal Fitness Training Membership includes regular check-ins to help keep you motivated and accountable. After all, if you don't complete your workouts, it doesn't matter how expertly crafted they are. 

PERMANENT HABIT CHANGE

The Habit Change Coaching Method (HCCM) is about facilitating lasting transformation - helping people make positive changes in their lives that support well-being.

 

We call this Transformational Coaching. Think of Transformational Coaching as this giant umbrella that commissions the three levels of change, which are:

  1. Behavior (habits)

  2. Beliefs

  3. Identity

 

When you change a habit, you change the course of your life. Most people have a pretty good idea of some important changes they would like to make in their lifestyle, right? But the powerful pull of habit keeps them stuck.

HOW IS THE HCCM DIFFERENT?

The basis of most coaching models is to

  1. Identify a client’s wants and obstacles.

  2. Then identify ways to remove those obstacles.

 

This is a good start, but it has critical missing elements. What happens at this point is that this creates a temporary breakthrough, which feels good in the moment for the client because they seem to have this grand aha, but before long the old patterns will start rushing back.

 

If the coach doesn’t know how to facilitate deep, lasting transformation, then they must create the same breakthrough over and over again. I call this the fake breakthrough – or the fakethrough. Eventually, these temporary, feel-good breakthroughs will stop working.

 

The secret is to change someone’s experience without them having to remember to be different.

 

When you are different without having to remember to be different, you’re doing something similar to a neurological restructuring on an identity level. So, habits are not just something you do. They actually become who you are. This is the magic.

COMMUNITY & CAMARADERIE

You will find community, camaraderie, support, and accountability in our Private Moxie Members Facebook Group. In the Moxie virtual community, there is a sense of fellowship with others as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals. We know that everything we want is just outside our comfort zones.

 

We've all heard the saying, "If you keep on doing what you've always done, you'll keep on getting what you've always got." We know that if we want something different we have to do something different. We believe that to achieve a big goal we have to become a bigger person. We develop new skills, new attitudes, and new capabilities. We stretch ourselves, and in so doing we will be stretched forever. That takes moxie. 

 

We are inspired by the success of others. We have found that the one thing that seems to separate winners from losers more than anything else is that winners take action. They simply get up and do what has to be done. Winners have moxie. We. Are. Winners.
