Moxie Fitness Studio is a recent addition to downtown Pineville that is unapologetically for women. Removed from the big-box gym experiences, free from ego and the perception that fitness revolves around perfection, the fitness experts at Moxie invite you to leave your day at the door and reconnect with yourself. What makes Moxie special? The people and the mission!
Moxie is a strength and conditioning boutique fitness studio that only has 50-minute small group classes. Moxie meets women wherever they are in life and only asks them to be themselves. There will never be more than 15 people per class. Why? So trainers can provide the options clients need. Moxie trainers focus on helping women realize what they can do as opposed to focusing on limitations. They understand that women naturally experience so many different seasons and hope to provide a constant in women’s lives – a place they can go and find what they need on any given day, during any given season.
To double down on being a constant for women and offering familiarity to clients, Moxie is home to “The 360 Method,” a fitness business specializing in prenatal and postnatal movement. Jamie, the owner of The 360 Method, also happens to be the Director of Program & Trainer Development for Moxie, so no matter what stage of life you’re in – Moxie and 360 have you covered.
I had the opportunity to try Moxie myself recently and let me tell you it did not disappoint. I chose the 6 a.m. class on a Tuesday morning and even though it was early, the gals at Moxie sure know how to get the day started.
Everyone was so hospitable from start to finish. Gabby, the trainer, was ready to greet me as I walked in, along with Jamie. After picking a cubby and a spot on the floor, I looked around to take in the fabulous decor. Exposed brick, catchy signs, a wall of mirrors, mood lighting – not to mention a kicking sound system – made the Moxie atmosphere inviting and fun.
Our workout started right on time with a really thorough warm-up. The routine was fast-paced but easy to follow. Every participant had personal options available to them – if you wanted to challenge yourself more with cardio, that was an option. If you wanted heavier weights, that was an option, as were lighter weights, or simply bodyweight. We were working alongside each other but at our own pace and with our own appropriate weight selections. Gabby knew exactly when to push and was very encouraging. As we cooled down, I was thrilled to be given a scented, cool towel for my face. Nothing feels more luxurious than a cool towel after a really great workout.
Moxie is filling a huge gap in Charlotte’s fitness industry. Women need a place to connect, exercise, have fun, and be themselves without feeling like they have to compete or like they’re being judged.
