THE BEGINNING

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”38px”][vc_column_text]”In 2006, I was lost. I didn’t have the self-confidence or direction to figure out how to lose weight or feel better about my body. It wasn’t until I reached out to a coach for help that things really started to change for me.” -Brian Murray, Owner of Motive Training. You can read more about his transformation story, here.

 

In 2009, Brian set out on a journey to learn from the best in nutrition, coaching, and exercise programming. Over the last decade, Brian has been fine-tuning his skills to help people transform from the inside out.[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”23px”][/qode_elements_holder_item][/qode_elements_holder][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” padding_bottom=”73″ css_animation=””][vc_column_inner el_class=”vc_col-sm-push-6″ offset=”vc_col-md-6″][vc_empty_space][qode_elements_holder number_of_columns=”one_column” custom_class=”we-are-different”][qode_elements_holder_item advanced_animations=”no”][vc_single_image image=”15792″ img_size=”full” qode_css_animation=””][/qode_elements_holder_item][/qode_elements_holder][vc_empty_space][/vc_column_inner][vc_column_inner el_class=”vc_col-sm-pull-6 motive-born” offset=”vc_col-md-6″][qode_elements_holder number_of_columns=”one_column”][qode_elements_holder_item item_padding=”42px 32px 0 12px” horizontal_alignment=”right” advanced_animations=”no” item_padding_1024_1280=”12px 32px 0 12px” item_padding_768_1024=”0px 0px 0 0px” item_padding_600_768=”0px 0px 0 0px” item_padding_480_600=”0px 0px 0 0px” item_padding_480=”0px 0px 0 0px”][vc_column_text]

MOTIVE TRAINING WAS BORN

[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”23px”][vc_column_text]

Brian started Motive Training because he saw gaps in how other trainers provided training programs, customer service, and coaching. 

 

Our philosophy is simple: move with purpose. When you train with intent, great things happen.

 

A majority of coaching that takes place in Motive revolves around mastery of movement. When you step into our space, prepare to fine-tune the basics, work around pain, and feel better than ever before.

RJ Walch
Personal Trainer
[vc_empty_space height=”30px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][vc_column_text]RJ began weight lifting in high school to prepare for football, and he quickly appreciated the way exercise made him feel: strong, powerful, and grounded. He learned the value of feeling and being fit and understood that maintaining this feeling was important for longevity and happiness. RJ went on to complete a bachelor’s degree in Exercise Science from Grand Valley State University. RJ says, “I am obsessed with bringing the best possible experience I can to every session and every person that I work with. I get excited when clients leave with a smile on their face because they crushed their workout and were pushed to take that extra step they thought to be impossible.”[/vc_column_text][vc_empty_space height=”30px”][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/4″][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row css_animation=”” row_type=”row” use_row_as_full_screen_section=”no” type=”grid” angled_section=”no” text_align=”center” background_image_as_pattern=”without_pattern” padding_top=”40″ padding_bottom=”40″ css=”.vc_custom_1556780410883{background-color: #888382 !important;}” z_index=””][vc_column][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”full_width” text_align=”left” css_animation=”” el_class=”studio-connect-section”][vc_column_inner][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][/vc_row]
