Women are more likely than men to get a workout-related injury.
If you’re an active woman who is ready to
stop getting injured,
and improve your flexibility,
then you already know that you need a plan that you can follow
3 reasons most traditional methods don’t actually get you out of pain
(And how to make sure you do)
Most traditional mobility plans are too generic and don’t take your unique needs into consideration.
Just imagine how much progress you’d make if you were following a plan that focused on what your body, lifestyle, and training are missing.
Following the shiny object and trying every new thing under the sun may help…for a bit.
But to get rid of pain for good, you’ll need a sustainable way to maintain your body regularly.
Despite what the fitness industry tells you, “muscle confusion” isn’t a thing. The key to getting stronger is focusing on proper body mechanics that build you up (instead of breaking you down).
You’re pretending to be invincible if you only foam roll when you’re injured.
You have to plan for pain – with daily maintenance that works on your strengths, unlocks tension and uncovers weaknesses BEFORE you’re set back by an injury.
Movement Mavens is one of the most comprehensive programs that teaches you how to move well and maintain your body so you can get stronger and out of pain…
…from the comfort of your own home.
Having pain is a matter of WHEN, not IF.
Short-term solutions and quick fixes wear off – but learning body maintenance and movement mastery are skills that will last you a lifetime.
No matter what comes up.
When you have a custom plan in place, you know exactly what to do – and spend less time bookmarking exercises to try and more time getting stronger and out of pain.
If you’re ready to move well, maintain your body and maximize your strength, then it’s time to join us inside Movement Mavens.
is the only program of it’s kind that…
teaches you how to maintain your body
With customized workout plans so you can stay ahead of the curve, plan for pain, and take care of muscle imbalances before they lead to injuries.
Teaches you how to move well
So you get stronger with every move you do – not just the hour you spend working out. When you focus on the foundations, you’ll get stronger every day.
And helps you craft your personalized plan
So you know exactly what you need to do and can build sustainable strength, CONSISTENTLY.
And the best part?
It takes less than 15-mins a day, so you can still get your workout done, get to the office, and have time for who (and what) you love.
If you’re finally ready to get stronger without getting hurt, here’s how we’ll get you there…
The 5 Pillars of Sustainable Strength
Learn the most effective strategies to handle pain and injuries so you never feel helpless again.
With a step-by-step framework, you’ll know how to take action and get yourself out of pain way faster than resting and icing can.
Even if you’re not a fitness expert, you are the expert on YOU.
This module will break down how to take excellent care of your body, no matter what comes up. And help you get to the root cause of your pain.
- Learn the golden rules for how the body works and why pain-only treatments fall short.
- Master 9 essential bodywork techniques so you can do more than just smash your IT band with foam rolling.
- Why RICE (rest, ice, compression, elevation) doesn’t work and why pain-free movement is your superpower.
- Learn what to do if your current strategies aren’t working and how to redirect your plan to keep progressing forward.
The AmplifyU Plan Process
Now that you know the underlying causes of pain, your AmplifyU Plan is your body maintenance roadmap and will get you on the path to pain-free.
Make your personalized AmplifyU Plan using my signature system that blends strength, bodywork and mobility in an easy to follow routine that takes less than 15-minutes a day.
The AmplifyU Plan™ Process works because where it hurts isn’t the whole story. You’re more than neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, tight hips, or plantar fasciitis – so why should you only address where it hurts?
- Create your personalized AmplifyU Plan, focusing on the 5 specific body areas you need to get stronger and out of pain.
- Learn how to effectively use the principles of mobilize and activate to release tension and build strength in your problem areas.
- Learn to move smart daily and how that will get you stronger, even when you’re not working out.
- How to best use and stay consistent with your new AmplifyU Plan.
Everyone says that “fixing your posture” will solve all your problems, but what does that actually mean?
When you know what good posture looks and feels like in your body, you dial in what it takes to get stronger every day just in how you move.
- Learn how to determine where your posture stands now and what changes will give the best results.
- Create a solid posture foundation that will help you build core strength.
- The most common tension patterns that contribute to poor posture and pain and how to unwind them.
The Big 3 Workout Plan
Now that your posture is on point, it’s time to get STRONG.
Sustainable strength is built by mastering 3 foundational moves: the squat, the hip hinge, and the overhead reach.
When you’re a BIG 3 expert, you can walk into any workout class and not worry about getting hurt because you know how to move well.
- Learn the basic principles of the BIG 3 and how to incorporate them into your AmplifyU Plan and training.
- How to incorporate the BIG 3 into injury-proof workouts that are appropriate for all levels.
- Worry-free modifications to use in any class you take.
- Learn my balanced workout formula that will get your heart rate up, build strength, and improve flexibility.
The Maven Mindset
If getting stronger and out of pain were as simple as stretching your hamstrings, you’d already be doing it.
The Maven Mindset helps you uncover and resolve the thoughts and beliefs that have been holding you back.
True healing comes from nourishing your entire self: body, mind, and spirit. And bad habits are more than just physical – they’re also in how you think.
- Why meditation matters and the guilt-free way to start a regular meditation practice that won’t stress you out.
- The science of gratitude and how it will improve your physical and psychological health.
- The scientific practices that have been shown to help you overcome the loop of “not good enough” playing in your head to truly believe that you are brave, powerful, and abundant right now and exactly as you are.

Movement Mavens is perfect for you if…
You work out but ignore discomfort or pain on a regular basis.
You’ve given up an activity because of pain or injury.
“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!
Because 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!!!
Former Athlete, Lawyer, and Coach
I wanted movement to be easy. And by working with Alex, I’m doing just that! I learn moves to eliminate my pain, but even more important, I’m designing my movement so that it’s so integrated in my daily life that I don’t even realize it. A game-changer for sure!
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.
Blogger + Movement Educator
Alex has turned my view of self-care inside out and upside down. I am SO much stronger and mobile than I used to be. Her support is everything to me. If you want to make a huge change in every aspect of your life, take her courses and you will see changes in both your body and your mind.
Actress, Screenwriter, and VP
…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 mediations. And these are all things I noticed within a week an a half and I was like ‘oh my, this stuff works!’”

What our most successful members asked before joining Movement Mavens
How does the membership work?
When you join, you get instant access to 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)!
I’m super busy and am worried I’ll fall behind. How can I know that I’ll be able to keep up?
The busier you are, the more important it is to have a program that’s super easy to follow. And since your AmplifyU Plan won’t take you more than 15-mins a day, you’ll actually have more time to do what you love (since you won’t be wasting any time doing boring stretches that don’t really work).
You’re a busy woman with a bajillion things to do. That’s why Movement Mavens was built with one thing in mind:
I’ve laid out the steps, as crystal clear as possible, so you don’t need to worry about being your own coach.
Instead, you just have to block out 15-mins, 4-5 times a week, dive in, and follow your AmplifyU plan that will get you cruisin’ on the path to feeling amazing every day!
Will Movement Mavens really work for me? I’ve tried everything (and nothing lasts).
Movement Mavens will teach you how to be your own Body Detective – someone who is curious about the body AND has the answers and solutions for whatever might come up. You’ll probably still be interested in other workout classes and have appointments with your chiropractor, but they’ll be tune-ups when you remember to book an appointment – not a standing weekly commitment.
Movement Mavens works because it puts you back in control of your body and your health. Imagine not being afraid of pain because you know exactly what movements your body needs on a daily basis.
Movement Mavens is the only program of its kind that not only teaches you how to maintain your body and move well, but also helps you craft your personalized plan so you can build sustainable strength, consistently.
Won't stretching be enough to fix my injuries?
Stretching isn’t the cure-all it’s made out to be and does nothing to reteach your brain and body how to move without pain.
Muscle feel “tight” because they’re bracing – they tighten up because of one of a few reasons: overuse, underuse, misuse or injury.
Just stretching doesn’t help rebalance your body or help you train for real life (unless touching your toes is a job requirement).
Movement Mavens and our AmplifyU process takes into consideration all the ways in which your body functions and moves – not just stretching.
Which means you’ll be more ready for whatever comes your way – ready to run, ready to hike, ready to get back to working out…with less soreness, tension, and pain.
Can I take a peek inside the membership?
Of course, here you are!
I don’t want to get bulky - will getting stronger actually make that much of a difference?
Unless you’re training like Arnold (hours a day, focusing specifically on getting BIG), you won’t look like him. I promise.
And getting stronger is one of the #1 things you can do to injury proof your body.
Movement Mavens focuses on bodyweight movements so you can move well throughout your day. Should you lift weights? 100%.
But you have to focus on your foundation and master the basics before you can get stronger every day.
Won’t chiropractic and PT be better to get me to pain-free?
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 – imagine knowing exactly what to do in the moment for relief.
You should be planning for pain. If you’re working out and moving regularly, it’s a matter of when not if.
And while yes, I totally support seeing a chiropractor or PT when you’re in pain and need it, depending on them for regular maintenance is like going to the dentist weekly for a cleaning instead of brushing your teeth.
A little bit everyday is not only enough to maintain your body so you can forget about soreness, tension and pain, it’s a requirement if you want to feel this way for good.
I’ve never done virtual coaching - how will I know that I’m doing it right?
You don’t actually learn how to do a move when someone is constantly giving you cues on how to execute it. True motor learning comes from having the time and space to reflect and practice.
But I also know how overwhelming it all can be in the beginning which is why you also get access to a very special bonus:
LIVE AmplifyU Training where I’ll guide you through my process to crafting your own personalized wellness plan so you know exactly what body areas to focus and what exercises to do.
I’ll be live coaching on the call so you can get your questions answered, your plan tweaked, and start making progress, fast.
Is Movement Mavens really risk free?
Yep! I want to make this as easy as possible for you.
Not only do you get a full week to scope it out and decide if it’s a good fit, but you can also cancel Movement Mavens any time after your first two months – no questions asked.
So if you decide 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 the video library, monthly trainings and coaching, your personalized AmplifyU plan, and priority registration and discounts on retreats and live events.
You’ll get access to the entire video library with over 200 activation and mobilization videos.
Bonus #1 LIVE AmplifyU Training where I’ll walk you through my process to crafting your own personalized wellness plan so you know exactly where to focus and what to do. I’ll be doing live coaching on the call so you can get your questions answered and start making progress, fast.
Bonus #2 Welcome Kit mailed to you with all the equipment you need to get the most out of the membership (bodywork tools, mindset tools and more)
Bonus #3 Access to a private community for on-going feedback and coaching from me and a place to connect and share with your new movement minded friends.
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 know exactly what your body needs to get stronger and out of pain.
GO AT YOUR OWN PACE: Movement Mavens is 100% go-at-your-own-pace. Can you Netflix binge all the modules and videos right out the gate? Sure. But you can also take them in like a rich piece of chocolate and savor each section until it makes sense. Most of our members spend about 15-mins a day on their AmplifyU Plan and do a longer form workout 1-2 times a week. But you do you, boo. Movement Mavens is whatever you need it to be! (PS. That still doesn’t mean I’ll let you slack.)
MONTHLY COACHING ON RELEVANT BODY NERD TOPICS: When you understand how your lower back (or any body part) works you can make different 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. My goal 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.
