IT DOESN’T HAVE TO HURT TO WORK™
If you are tired of feeling like the fitness industry is “shoulding” all over you with unrealistic expectations of how you should look and feel, it’s time to change the channel and try something that actually feels good for your mind, your body and your soul. It Doesn’t Have to Hurt to Work™ and Alkalign will guide you in your journey to feel strong, healthy and empowered without breaking down your physical or mental health in the process.
PRIORITIZE LONG TERM HEALTH
Say goodbye to hype and the days of equating the quality of your workout with how much you sweat or what your fitness device told you you did. We believe it’s time to get back to what’s real and what works – the basics. That’s why we adhere to a philosophy that is built on the 7 functional movement patterns of the human body, so you’re no longer training to achieve some arbitrary metric or take some sweaty selfie. [“check the box” or “reach your step goal”.] We train movement instead of just muscles so you can gain a skillset that transfers over to every element of your life.
At Alkalign we don’t look at screens or dashboards, but instead feel with our hands, look with your eyes and really tune into what is happening in our bodies in this moment.
It’s time to break free from the workout that leaves you feeling more physically and mentally broken down than when you started. It’s time to embrace a philosophy that prioritizes your long term health as much as your short term results and trains you for life.
Judgement free zone
“I regret taking care of myself.”
– Said no one ever.
get off the hamster wheel
Modern day life is hard. As if it weren’t hard enough to pay the bills, feed the dog (and kids!), and maintain relationships, we are further burdened by a culture that fills our heads with expectations about what we should look like, should act like and how that should make us feel.
The barrage of unattainable images and conflicting, misleading, and just plain bad advice about what it means to be “fit” are overwhelming and confusing. They may have driven you to a fitness routine that isn’t helping you achieve your goals [or is breaking you down mentally and physically] or perhaps leave you unsure of where and how to start taking better care of yourself.
That’s why we created Alkalign. We recognize the importance of having a place in your life where you are given the space to dismantle the “shoulds” and explore your personal balance (which might even include the occasional dance party). We created a judgement-free zone with highly trained FUNctional movement professionals who are committed to teaching you body-preserving movement and guiding you in your self care.
Welcome to a space where you can listen, learn, and pay attention to how you’re wired. It’s your time to finally get off the hamster wheel, and live your life your way.
