“I feel like it’s really opened my eyes to how the different parts of my body work together.
It’s also helped me feel better!
…after only doing stretches on my hip for 6 months to a year, I was still having pain and couldn’t run, or if I ran, I couldn’t move for another 3 weeks.
And now I can run because I know what to do afterwards.”
Physical Therapist and Coach
After only a week and a half of doing your rotator cuff exercises, I can do modified pushups and planks without pain!
I just KNEW I was going to have to go to the doctor, but I can sleep on that side and raise my arm over my head without the clunking and stabbing pain. THANK YOU!!!

What our most successful members asked before joining Movement Mavens
How does the membership work?
When you join, you’ll get instant access to our private member’s community, including the Video Library, with over 200 mobilization and strength building activation videos.
All videos are on-demand and you can search by keyword or category to find the exact body area you want to focus on.
You’ll have access to the videos and private members group as long as you’re a member.
Live trainings and workshops are uploaded within 48-hours so you can catch up, even if you can’t make it live.
And with new videos and trainings added every month, you can always find what you need (at your own pace)!
Your membership will renew (and charge your card again) every month at the same rate you joined. Even if the price goes up (which it will) you’re locked in at the same price as long as you’re an active member in good standing!
Of course, we hope you’ll stick around forever, but you have the freedom to cancel at any time before your membership renews.
How long will it take to start feeling better?
Most Mavens report feeling better within the first few weeks. And this is for pain that’s been around for a few months to a few years.
When you start incorporating self-massage, stretching, and smarter strengthening, your body responds quickly.
But it will require consistency on your part.
You’ll get preset AmplifyU Plans with the 5 most common body areas that need attention, and the specific exercises to focus on each day.
But I promise you won’t get bored – you’ll also learn how to customize and tweak the AmplifyU Plan for what you need right now AND as your body keeps changing. Because trust me, the only constant in life is change.
Our most successful members start out doing their plan 3x a week and completing one mobilization (therapy ball exercise) and one activation (strength-building exercises) for one of their body areas.
This means it will take you less than 15-mins a day to complete and YES, that is enough. Being more strategic with your exercises allows you to pinpoint exactly what’s working so you can double down on that. Not just trying fifty billion different things and hoping one of them works.
The secret sauce is consistently showing up and doing the work – and this is what will help you get back to feeling like yourself…without the pain.
What equipment will I need?
To get the most out of the program, you’ll need a pair of therapy balls (about the size of a tennis ball) and a 20” diameter air-filled ball.
Equipment that would be nice to have, but not a requirement, is a set of blocks and some weights like dumbbells or kettlebells (for our Garage Party Workouts).
All of the workouts are best done barefoot in a yoga mat sized space.
That being said, you’ll get the best results, especially with the bodywork and self-massage, with tools that were specifically designed for the body.
If you don’t already have some, you’ll have the option to pick up a Full Body Mobility Kit at checkout.
The Full Body Mobility Kit includes:
- a pair of therapy balls to get into the hard knots of your upper back, neck, shoulders,
- a large therapy ball to really get into your tight hips, lower back, and larger muscle areas,
- a specialized grippy massage ball to custom inflate for full-body relaxation and abdominal massage,
- AND stretching strap with handles
Is this just more stretching?
Nope! If stretching was the bee’s knees, you wouldn’t be here.
You know how you stretch, but then everything tightens up again in the next few days? It’s because stretching doesn’t re-train your brain and body how to move together without reaggravating the injured area.
Muscles feel “tight” because they’re bracing against overuse, underuse, misuse or a history of injury.
If you just keep stretching without addressing the underlying cause of the tension – you’ll be stuck doing the same boring stretches again and again without creating any lasting change.
Movement Mavens and our AmplifyU process combine mobilizations (self-massage) and strength building activations to help unlock your tension and retrain your body (and brain) how to move smarter.
Think of it as neuromuscular re-education aka you learn how to uncover and reset compensation patterns so you (and your body!) feel better, every day.
Can I take a peek inside the membership?
Of course, here you are!
What’s the best way to incorporate Movement Mavens into what I’m already doing?
For some of our members, Movement Mavens and the new workouts you get every month are all they focus on. Others combine it with weight training and workouts they’re already doing to help their body recover faster and continue to work on improving posture and movement.
When you join, you’ll figure out where you are on the Path to Becoming a Body Detective, which will give you a crystal clear idea of what you should be focusing on to move you closer to pain-free, every day.
For example, if you’re just starting out and have daily aches or pains, you’re at the ALPHA Brain level. At this level, your focus is getting your AmplifyU Plan customized (which you’ll learn how to do during our Live AmplifyU Training), and to work on perfecting your squat and hip hinging technique.
If you already have a solid workout habit established, I recommend you do your AmplifyU Plan before or after your workouts. This will help you get into the habit of doing daily body maintenance by pairing it with an already established habit.
Another way to incorporate your AmplifyU Plan is at the end of the workday. This will help your body (and mind) unwind from the stress of being on the computer all day and give you a ceremonial end to your work – which is super challenging when you’re working from home.
You still can do other workout classes but now you’ll know how to move smarter to avoid injury and get stronger than ever.
Either way, in less than 15-mins a day, you’ll be working on strength, stability, and flexibility to get you closer to feeling like yourself again…without pain.
Will this replace my chiropractor and PT?
I support seeing a chiropractor or PT 100% when you need it (which for me is 1-2 times a year). But depending on them for regular maintenance is like going to your dentist weekly for a cleaning instead of brushing your teeth.
Your AmplifyU Plan is a proactive plan for pain – you’re already ahead of the ball and actively working on restoring your core, fixing your posture, and unlocking your tension.
This means that when you do go see your healthcare provider, you can actually have a conversation with them about what’s going on, what you’ve tried, and what’s working instead of just “it hurts here”.
And to be honest, this makes it wayyyy easier for your chiropractor and massage therapist – they don’t have to keep undoing the same things over and over again, because you’re improving the way your body feels every day.
A little bit every day is not only enough to maintain your body so you can forget about soreness, tension, and pain, but it’s also a requirement if you want to feel this way for good.
Even if you see your PT twice a week, there are still 23 hrs in a day that you’re not with them. The best thing you can do for yourself and your health is to learn how to address aches and pains when they come up, instead of waiting for someone else to do it for you.
So instead of spending $360++ every month on visits and co-pays, you’ll be empowered with the knowledge to take back control of your health and your body. For less than $3/day.
How much access do I get to Alex?
This isn’t a 1:1 coaching package (you can learn more about that HERE), so you won’t have any one-on-one sessions or be able to text me 24/7…
But you can ask questions at any time inside our private Movement Mavens group or during the monthly live sessions.
Is Movement Mavens really risk free?
Yep! I don’t want you to be stuck in Movement Mavens unless it really is the missing link between you and feeling super strong and not worrying about getting injured.
If you decide at any time that it’s no longer a good fit and you’re not making progress, just reach out to us before your next billing cycle and we’ll help you cancel your membership.
Can you remind me of everything I’m getting when I enroll TODAY?
Of course! When you enroll before doors close, you’ll get access to the FULL Movement Mavens membership, including access to our community of kickass, movement minded women, with monthly trainings, workouts, and an in-depth video library to help you with bodywork, flexibility, mobility and more.
Plus you’ll also get these bonuses to help you get stronger and out of pain:
#1 Best Sleep Ever Workshop – get the best night’s sleep ever with a 15-minute full body roll out that relaxes you, reduces stress, and fixes your breathing for pain-free sleep.
#2 Push-up Maven Plan – a fully designed-for-you workout plan that breaks down step-by-step, how to get stronger for pain-free push-ups in the next 30-days.
#3 Planking Maven Plan a fully designed-for-you workout plan that will rebuild your plank from the ground up so that you can say goodbye to wrist, neck and shoulder pain.
#4 LIVE AmplifyU Training! – I know how easy it is to get overwhelmed in a new program, so in this training you’ll learn the step-by-step process to create your own custom body maintenance plan so you can get started and know exactly what exercises to focus on.
For less than $3/day, you get
MY BRAIN + FRAMEWORK: I’ve tried pretty much everything over the last decade so you don’t have to. I eat, breathe, and think about movement all day every day so I can synthesize exactly what you need to know to get stronger and out of pain, ASAP.
COACHING AT NO-BRAINER RATES: Instead of spending $320/month waiting to see your chiropractor, hoping that the adjustment actually sticks this time, and dreading the discomfort you know you’ll feel in between – you’ll be empowered with the knowledge of exactly what your body needs to get stronger and out of pain.
MONTHLY COACHING ON RELEVANT BODY NERD TOPICS: When you understand how your lower back (or any body part) works you can make better choices throughout your day about how you move. I believe that everyone has the right to know how their body works so you can take excellent care of yourself and my mission is to teach everything and anything you want to know.
SOMEONE IN YOUR CORNER WHO TRULY CARES: I know from personal experience how frustrating it is when your pain relief is dependent on someone else’s schedule. I will hold your hand every step of the way until you are confident enough to do it for yourself so you never have to wait for someone else again.
As a massage therapist for 12+ years my body is tired. And, when I spend time teaching others in a mobility class it doesn’t give me the time that I need to work on my own mobility.
I loved working with Alex because it allowed me to have time to work through my own aches and pains at my own pace and my own time-no need to figure out how to fit a class into my already busy schedule.

…what I noticed when I started working out trauma, anxiety and depression through my body is that I immediately slept better.
I immediately stopped having panic attacks before I went to bed at night. I immediately stopped feeling jaw pain, and shoulder pain – things that clench up when I don’t even know because I’m just anxious. I could breathe better, my mind was more focused during my meditations.
And these are all things I noticed within a week an a half and I was like ‘oh my, this stuff works!’”
