FLOWSTATE PHILOSOPHY

Flowstate is a muscle club and movement studio dedicated to unconventional training. Unconventional not only refers to the implements and exercises utilized, but also to the unorthodox philosophy at the foundation of our method. At Flowstate we believe fitness training is a means to an end, not an end in itself. In fact, it is a powerful tool for self-development in all areas of life.

Small Group Classes

Humans are social animals, and training is a social experience. Our Small Group training is designed to maximize both personal attention and community connection.

Personal Training

While Small Group training will fit the needs of most, there are still some who require, or would prefer, an even more individualized experience.

About

The highest aspiration of any coach should be to educate. That’s because good training is more than just getting a workout. Fundamentally, it’s about learning how to listen to your body, increasing adaptability, and moving well. At Flowstate you will gain an understanding of the main principles that underlie any successful training program. This allows trainees to develop a unique and sustainable practice in their own lives. Such a practice, one truly embedded in the lifestyle of the individual, is the most effective, sustainable way to health and longevity.

Our programming brings a skill-based approach to exercise. By practicing the skills of natural, human movement we will see an increase in work capacity as a direct result. Conventional training tries to reverse engineer this equation. It pursues capacity in the hope movement quality will naturally follow. Unfortunately, this is ineffective and ultimately leads to pain, injury, and burnout. Furthermore, by focusing on movement skills that are neither too easy nor too difficult, we can use training as a means to access flow (see definition from positive psychology above).

At Flowstate we place a high value on balance. Conventional fitness programs incorporate either hard practices (think HIIT or strength training) or soft practices (think yoga or meditation), but few combine them both. Flowstate is the rare exception. Our programming seamlessly integrates both soft and hard techniques. As a member of Flowstate, you will no longer need to spend money or time at multiple places to remain physically and mentally balanced.
