Our Story

DNA Movement’s mission is to spread new energies for healthy human movement and performance amongst its local community and surrounding areas, for the benefit of improving the lifestyles, levels of performance and longevity of the lives of customers it serves.

A Refreshing Change

On the whole, the following three types of fitness facilities that currently serve the Charlottesville and Albermarle County area have been identified, of which DNA Movement is proud to be unique from:


      • The traditional large membership based gym – e.g. ACAC – where, the motivated go in, train in the way they feel safe and know well, leave, repeat for months or years and their fitness plateaus, whilst others motivated to change their lifestyle, join, adhere to a program for a short time, get bored or other life events crop up and the 11 months left on their membership goes to waste.
      • The ‘CrossFit’ style gym, which has become very popular very quickly, also developing into somewhat a sport of its own, but which often has a very ‘performance at all costs’ approach and associated injuries as a result.
      • Other small privately owned gyms which also have a personal and group training class structure but with more traditional style training methods and or without the offer of specialized training and massage and bodywork, completing the package.

Our Difference

Forefront of Fitness

Being at the forefront of the fitness initiative focusing on Natural Movement, for the benefit of health, vitality and human athletic potentials. The approach, based on the philosophy of how the body was designed to move and reeducating around the fundamental skills such as crawling, walking, jumping etc. DNA Movement is the first in the area to introduce this and feel the potential client base is well educated to be open to this approach.

Healthy Movement

The focus on developing healthy movement patterns as well as a well rounded strong and mobile human chassis to aid individuals to reach new potentials, recover from and prevent injuries, through sports and movement specific training and massage therapy. The owners specialist knowledge and interests in movement training, sports specific strength and conditioning particularly through functional and conventional methods, bodyweight conditioning incorporating Yoga and Pilates techniques, sports specific massage therapy and approach through structural balance of fascial tissue, will serve them in standing out and being unique in what they will offer.

Experience to Keep You Healthy & Safe
