What makes us healthy?
At the Institute of Motion, we have devoted over two decades to answering that question and learning how to shape environments that power up human health and performance. We believe in action. For us, an idea or theory or method only matters if it can create meaningful results in real life.
We are an Applied Human Health and Performance company–emphasis on applied. We’re here to put great ideas and proven methods into practice; to help you unlock your potential–as a person, as a leader, as an organization.
Because health and performance are so foundational to our lives, our services cover a lot of ground.

- Fitness (For gyms, club chains, personal trainers, and allied health professionals)
- Wellness (For groups, teams, and individuals)
- Preventive Health (For individuals and at an infrastructural level for organizations and communities)
And for Performance, our solutions support:
- Athletic Development (Professional and recreational athletes and teams)
