Patti Acheson

I am a Fellow of Applied Functional Science™ (FAFS), A Certified Pilates Instructor and a Functional Golf Specialist. I completed the GIFT Fellowship with the Gray Institute in 2016, PlayCoachMate Fellowship with the Gray Institute in 2018 Functional Golf Specialty in 2018 and completed my full Stott Pilates Certification in 2005.

My primary inspiration is the Gray Institute’s Applied Functional Science which utilizes the Biological, Physical and Behavioral Sciences to understand the human body and how it moves. Our body moves as a continuum, a Chain Reaction™ so the body needs to be analyzed as a whole.  The goal is to help you improve your movement and performance and discover more motion, more stability and more power in your body.

I am passionate about teaching clients how to move and strengthen their bodies so that they can be strong and pain free in their daily activities, work and recreation. Over the years, I have had the privilege of working with clients from all walks of life. People who want cross training and those new to exercise, seniors and teenagers, prenatal and post natal clients, men and women. I am especially proud of the results achieved by clients who came after rehabilitating from a major trauma.

Alexis Krueger

Life is full of beautiful, intelligent and complex movement.  My ambition is to understand that movement and how the physical and psychological world contribute to it.  My passion is educating people about their bodies and aiding them in movement; so that we all might bring strong, confident bodies to the backcountry, garden, sports field or wherever your passion takes you.

With a degree in Exercise Science, STOTT PILATES Instructor certification and an invaluable education from Gray Institute I appreciate my ever growing movement tool box and use my education to create purposeful, quality and functional movement plans for individuals of all ages, body types and set goals.

I am grateful for the opportunity to guide people through movement at The Movement Company.  I enjoy meeting and working with new people and look forward to spreading the awareness, strength and confidence that I have gained through my own movement journey.
