The first time I walked into MOVE was about a year ago and I immediately recognized an entirely different atmosphere from other "gyms" I had been in! I was finally in the right place - I don't know why or how, but I just knew this was where I was meant to be! I came to MOVE through one of my grandkids who was working with Chad for training and sports injury rehab! The kids came to visit me and talked about how amazing this "guy" was and I should go in to see if he could do something about my hip! When I called for my appointment, Jackie talked like we were already old friends, knew who I was and that I was the kids' grandmother....I should have known from that first call, this was going to be "different." When I went for my appointment, my inner self was pretty nervous because I thought, "this probably isn't going to work for me" - the floor was full of kids/athletes - and, I wasn't worried about running, flipping, tackling, hitting, etc! I was there for simpler things like, "how am I going to get enough flexibility back in my hip just to tie my shoe!!" A big gap between those kids and my "goal." But then I started looking around and there were all ages - young to mature - all body types and fitness levels. I had a hip replacement 16 years ago and then a full revision 4 years later so it had been 12 years since my surgery when I hit the door at MOVE! And, I had not been the ideal rehab patient post surgery, but instead I went right back to work - sitting, flying, driving....all those things that aren't great for getting hips back to doing what they are supposed to! I share the above just to emphasize how different being at MOVE feels. I resembled a block of concrete with minimal flexibility, a pretty significant limp, wimpy strength and several extra pounds of "travel" weight. The moment I first walked in, I didn't have that feeling of judgement or self consciousness that usually comes with going into a "a place of exercise." Instead, I received a huge smile and welcome from Jackie, and Chad was already figuring out what was working and what "wasn't." I knew change was going to happen! They embrace and support you physically and emotionally, and give 100%+ support for achievement of your goals! They expect the best you can give and we all know they genuinely care about each of us! I don't feel like a "client"--I feel like I have a family - Jackie's knowledge (and hugs) and the accountability she holds me to and Chad's amazing mind is always turning- he never stops thinking about the possibilities and how to make something work even if it is outside of "normal"- and his ability to relate every MOVE to a function, no matter what age, what sport, or if it is just figuring out what has to happen to tie your shoe! I have seen so many people make changes over this year, including me, with guidance and support from Chad and Jackie. I have more flexibility and strength than I have had in years and I will reach my goal! And those extra "work travel" pounds are gone. Thanks Chad and Jackie from my heart! MOVE is not a "gym" - it is a LIFESTYLE, a CULTURE and a FAMILY! Also, another great addition with Crystal recently joining the team! She is a gem and highly skilled in her profession of physical therapy and a natural fit with everyone. It is an awesome benefit having her there to work on injuries or to just keep everyone well and on the MOVE! I love being at MOVE - as soon as I walk in I hear - Hi Baby Doll and Hi Mama! And I know I'm glad I'm here, I have great support, and it's time to get my body going and make it MOVE! Judi Christie
I have been going to Move Human Performance for 8 months now. Every workout is a little bit different so it never gets old. Chad is always excited, happy, and challenging me to get stronger and faster. This is an environment where you can learn the fundamentals of working out and how it affects your body. I have lost my dad bod, reduced body pain, and felt better ever since going to Move.
I joined MOVE in October and did not realize the impact Jackie, Chad and the family at MOVE would have on me. I started with Boot camp and had no clue that I would be motivated to make permanent changes in my entire life forever. I love the positivity, and overall environment as well as not feeling like just another client. I have definitely gained a family. Yes, I wanted results and was a scale watcher, but was encouraged in other ways to see my results. I have lost 70 pounds so far but have become stronger both mentally and physically. I have achieved things I did not think were possible in the beginning and strive for so much more thanks to the MOVE family experience! One of the best Sports Performance Training Center.
Chad has helped me become the best athlete I could be. My skills have improved a lot within a couple months of sports performance training at MOVE. I feel like I am in great condition and more strong. My game on the sand court has been better compared to last years season. I am so glad that I joined MOVE because it made me the best version of myself as an athlete. I appreciate all of the tips and guidance he has given me.
If you are looking for professional level Sports Performance Training, Move Human Performance is where you need to train. Our daughter is a Division 1 Athlete and Chad and his staff were instrumental in her being ready to compete at the D1 college level. Chad helped our daughter improve her strength, endurance, explosiveness, vertical jump, agility, stability and flexibility. He educated her about biomechanics, technique, and recovery. He designed a personalized strength and conditioning program for her not only based on her sport (beach volleyball) but also her specific position. She loved going to Move because Chad and Jacquie were so encouraging, supportive, and truly cared about her as a person, athlete and client. As parents, we are always searching for the best for our kids. Chad is the best trainer, mentor and sports psychologist we’ve ever seen. Go to Move. It will be one of the best decisions you make!
Jackie has been the best trainer for me. I tried others in the past and I found I didn’t stay dedicated because the trainer was not interested in my whole being, just get the hour done and on to the next. Jackie takes interest in my fitness goals and progress. She texts me to encourage me to keep going and I can also share any accomplishments outside of my workouts. As I lose pant sizes she helps me focus on where I could work harder to make my total goal. I’ve stuck to my workouts because they are ever evolving to maximize results. Jackie has the passion and drive that pushes me to be better. I’m still on my fitness journey and I’m glad and grateful she is my navigator as a Sports Performance Training coach.
I first met Chad 5 years ago when doing physical therapy for bilateral knee replacement. I chose the facility for the sports medicine aspect & Chad was a trainer who stood out as a truly positive motivator. Within the same year my husband Phillip had a substantial critical injury and with the assistance from many professional people again Chad & his Move program made a huge impact on recovery. I think working with Chad and his beautiful wife Jackie has give me the strength to gain my strength & flexibility. He is a huge motivator, love or hate it he will get you moving again. I hope more older adults will realize his unique approach to working out & it’s not another run of the mill gym.
Chad and MOVE are the epitome of hard work, talent, and success. The improvements I’ve made since working with Chad and at MOVE can’t be measured. Playing basketball for majority of my life at a high level, my body is constantly taking a beating and the pounding takes its tolls on my knees. However, my knees, and overall body have never felt better since working with chad. Since I was about 13 years old Chad has helped me get through 4 years at the University of Washington and be able to be individually and collectively successful at a high level. He helped me get prepared after I got drafted in the WNBA. He also helped me become successful as I trained prior to playing in Japan. I would not have gotten through any of that without the guidance and help from Chad. There is no one more passionate, authentic and informative about their work like Chad. More importantly the atmosphere at MOVE feels like family. I’m always so excited to to workout and get pushed by both Chad and Jackie. They have the best hearts and intentions and will do anything to help you reach your goals. No matter what make your way to MOVE. You won’t regret it!
