We get to know you and your body.
We are stewards of motivation, accountability, and quality training. Just walk through our doors. We’ll do the rest
we use technology to help make your schedule fit ours.
we build community six members at a time.
The SG6 Formula:
SG6 stands for Small Group of 6. Simply meaning, you train in a group of up to six members, each with your own program. SG6 teaches advanced training methods to help you achieve a superior position to train from which results in better movement and a decreased likelihood of pain.
Your program is uniquely designed for you - your body and your goals.
No other group training model achieves this.
Even better, SG6 membership equates to less than $25 a session.
Compared to personal training, SG6 gives you the same benefits for a fraction of the cost.

Personal Training the Move Right Training Method
Personal training is at the core of what we do at Move Right KC. It is where you will receive the fastest return on your investment. This is especially the case if you are dealing with extreme stiffness or low-level muscle/joint pain. The SG6 Formula (small group 6) is where we are able to “spread the love” and provide movement focused group training for more people. The nuances in form and technique are applied across the board to both our SG6 members and our Personal Training clients. Our objective is to deliver the very best 1:1, Personal Training and SG6 Small Group fitness experience possible.
How do you know if you need 1:1 Personal Training, SG6 Training.
Personal training is, well, more personal. It’s all about customizing every single aspect of your training to your personal goals and needs. When we work with you one-on-one, you get our very best. The result? You in the best shape possible in the most responsible way possible.
It’s all about the constant pursuit of excellence through education and precise programming. Understanding the human body better means we can program with better precision and provide you with the most personalized workout plan possible.
When we talk about moving right, we’re talking about you moving better and stronger than ever, not about what has largely become the industry standard of -- whatever it takes, despite the costs.
Much of personal training should be training you to move better so you can train stronger. Why is this important? We believe that acute injury lives at the end range of motion that you don’t own or fully control. We also believe the more movement options we can help create for your body the greater the chance you’ll train without injury. Not only that but more movement options equates to a better chance you’ll get out of existing pain.
This means we aim for our clients to not only having a good range of motion in the natural human movement patterns, but we also train you to the end ranges of what is healthy movement. If end-range is compensatory, we see that and work to fix it.
Owning all three planes of motion before training in them is important too. There is a hierarchy when it comes to what exercises you should and should not be doing. As a personal trainer, we understand this hierarchy and we make sure you’re checking all the boxes that need to be checked before progressing you to another level. We see too many scenarios where clients and class members are exposed to unnecessary risks.
We aim to facilitates a better brand of personal training than the average fitness model. As more research comes to the forefront we believe personal trainers have a responsibility to adapt to new methods that are proving to help people move better. We must be willing to evolve to meet the structural health needs of our clients. It’s not as simple as just learning the basic philosophies of what’s in your certification exam like the SAID Principal.
Training for health and to prevent pain
What drives the personal training industry forward is creating safer and more sustainable training models for the overall health of our clients. As personal training moves into the future it should be moving further into a preventative health mindset. It is better for both the client and the personal trainer to think about creating more resilient bodies not just sexier ones. Although sexy is always a nice side effect.
When clients can stay healthier longer, they can train to be fit without injury or falling into the bad cycle of injury. A more durable and satisfied client base means a more satisfied client base. Which is the goal, after all.
The Harvard Medical school states that “Exercising regularly, every day if possible, is the single most important thing you can do for your health. It does nice things like control appetite, boost mood, and improve sleep.” And it can save your life, by reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, dementia, depression, and many cancers.”
But what if this exercise is resulting in pain? The first thought you may have is you need to hire a physical therapist, but a PT may not always be the answer, more times than not the answer is simply better movement. Meaning your body needs more movement options because the one it’s using is causing it excessive stress that is, in turn, causing pain.
According to Gallup, more Americans are consistently exercising each week than ever, with 55.5 percent indicating frequent exercise. However, it’s not all good news. According to stats from the American Academy of Pain Medicine, pain impacts 59% of Americans overall enjoyment of life.
About 80% of us experience low back pain at some point during our lives. That means that even if you’re one of the 20 percent that has never had low back pain you may be one of the 35 percent that is at risk.
Ultimately, we see an apparent disconnect between structural health and internal health. Exercise goes a long way in preventing illness as shown in the Harvard study among others. However, the same exercises that can stave off illness can, in many cases, directly cause pain or indirectly contribute to what is causing it. The point is you and your personal trainer better pay attention to creating quality movement options for your body. If moving wrong results in pain and pain is the number one demotivator to exercise. Then you won’t be receiving those important benefits of exercise that we see in research.
One would tend to think that hiring a personal trainer would help you mitigate all this injury risk. However, in the most unregulated professional industry (the fitness industry), it’s hard to know how to find a truly professional trainer that understands how to mitigate pain through better positioning and movement. A personal trainer is clearly not a clinician or therapist but we are responsible for our clients' well-being. And implementing a best practices model is just a matter of being intentional.
As fitness professionals, we have to know what we don’t know, we have to educate ourselves exhaustively. Knowing our boundaries when it comes to determining when pain is within our scope or out of our scope is an important part of the job. In other words is the pain pathological or not? And when it’s not, we have to have the ability to train out of pain, to help the bodies we are training achieve better positioning and better movement. We have found that simply moving right when done with focus is the best way to approach pain.
This does not mean ignoring that the pain is there. It means acknowledging it by being informed by it. To know that assessing how the joint above and below the pain moves and addressing limitations is how we create best practices. Programming mobility exercise when joints are stiff and stability exercise when hyper-mobility exists can be the panacea that changes things.
What to do when you’re hurting and feeling stuck
Should personal training be your only choice if you want to workout without pain or a reduced risk of injury? In short, yes; because you are someone who is working and living in a culture of constant sitting and limited movement. As a result, most of us have limitations in our movement. For those of us who move really well, we may have a lack of stability that can lead to some bad stuff too.
It is the job of the personal trainer to have a working knowledge of how to address sub-optimal movement strategies. Sometimes these are necessary strategies to get you through life effectively but sometimes they’re a determinate to you. A ticking time bomb waiting to send you to a surgeon.
Choose a personal trainer who is constantly educating themselves on how your body moves and operates. None of us have it all figured out and like technology, new information about the human body is changing faster than ever.
We are all built differently and we move differently as a result, personal trainers have to learn different approaches to different types of people, both personalities (how people learn and “buy-in”) and bodies.
Questions to have answered before hiring a trainer
There are several key factors you should consider before hiring a personal trainer or becoming part of a semi-private or small group training gym.
Q. Is the personal trainer qualified?
A. A certification is great but is far from the only criteria that should qualify a personal trainer to be your personal trainer. If you’re at a big-box gym, ask the other staff off-line who has the best reputation. Don’t broadcast your question at the front desk. In fact, find a maintenance person and ask about their character. Then search out the intern as ask them who the personal trainer is that teaches them the most and cares about if they are learning it.
Q. What is the best personal training certification?
A. When it comes to certifying bodies there is not a lack of them.
There are seven accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, but that should not be your standard.
Looking at the exam pass rates there are three -- ACSM, NSCA and NCSF are the most challenging.
NCSF requires the least amount of continuing ed.
NSCA requires the most with the ACSM in second.
ACSM and NSCA have levels of certification that require a four-year degree and levels that do not. Just the fact that they require this at the clinical and specialist level leverages their personal training certification standards to a higher level.
As far as costs go NASM and NSCA are $100 plus more than the others.
All this leads me to the unbiased but a little bit biased opinion that NSCA stands slightly above the fold with ACSM a close second. Both of these certifications translate that the personal trainer is serious and has invested real time thought and effort in his or his professional personal training certification.
So what other criteria should I have in choosing a personal trainer?
Q. Is the personal trainer reliable?
A. Make sure they say what they mean and mean what they say. No showing or being late to a personal training session is a huge a red-flag. Especially if it happens more than once within a year’s time.
Q. Do they enforce my reliability?
A. That’s right they should hold you to their late and 24-hour cancellation policies. You are paying this personal trainer to train you to be among other things accountable. You need this if you want to accomplish your goals.
Q. Is the personal trainer an encourager or do they motivate by other means?
A. This one depends a lot on your personality but in general, a personal trainer that encourages when you expect them to criticize and challenges when you expect kudos is the kind of personal trainer you should look for on the whole. The best personal trainers understand this psychology.
Q. Is what they are saying valid?
A. Personal Training is a profession that is continually changing and your personal trainer should be sharing with you the whys. You may not understand the answer but you need to be asking the question. They should be able to articulate the reason you’re doing what you’re doing on some level and in layman’s terms without hemming and hawing. Continuing ed is a great thing for students of personal training methods but it should not influence beyond what your personal trainer can comprehend.
