Functional Movement Screen
April appointments for Functional Movement Screens are now available! The FMS is an excellent tool to help us identify and address our movement and mobility imbalances and deficiencies. This knowledge is crucial for athletes of all levels. Sessions are FREE with your membership, and we strongly encourage everyone to take advantage of this service. Already had a screen? Schedule a follow-up appointment to check on your progress! To schedule your appointment, click HERE.


Get Ready!!!
We are just one week away from our Paleo Lecture! We would like to have as many people as possible participate in our our Spring Paleo Challenge. For those of you who have never participated in one of our nutritional challenges before, here is a little info:

What is the Paleo Diet?
This diet refers to what our ancestors of the paleolithic age ate. Their diet consisted mostly of lean protein, fresh fruits and vegetables from the earth, and little amounts of nuts and seeds. In our very modern world most of the foods made readily available to us are heavily processed. These sorts of foods have been linked to weight gain, diabetes, high cholesterol, etc. We want to expose you to a new and “fresh” way of eating. We challenge you to sign up to participate! Check out the details below.

Start date: Sunday, April 26th
Length of Challenge: 6 Weeks
Requirements: $20 Buy in
Even if you are unsure about participating in the challenge, it doesn’t hurt to come to the lecture. Join us on Wednesday, April 15th at 7 pm in Southie Green. Sign up here!
