A Burnout Cure: Motive Training.

By: Hannah Mayo

You know those weeks when your morning coffee isn’t cutting it and the exhaustion is blatantly overtaking you? Me too. While we all experience burnout- most of us would assume that an 8 am workout is NOT the thing to cure our yawns and tired souls… however, a session at Motive Training was.

The studio was so easy to find, and there were lots of parking spaces. When I walked in, I was greeted by the smiling faces of Brian Murray (owner,) Dan Montgomery, and RJ Walch. As I warmed up my body, Brian asked me what I was looking to improve. I asked him to teach me how to improve my form and we jumped right into it. He helped me set up a correct form to keep my spine safe and tailored the equipment we used to equipment I had access to, at my regular gym.

Throughout the workout, I was able to try new moves. Brian kept me laughing while still pushing me to reach my goals. It was not at all awkward, and I learned so much. He modified moves to fit my level of training and taught me why moves were performed a certain way.  Not once did I feel embarrassed by what I could or could not do during the session. My injuries were worked around and I was taught how to work with them. Motive Training was a safe space where I could challenge the exhaustion that had been terrorizing my life.

Motive Training is passionate about helping you achieve your goals. It does not matter what level you’re at, we all begin when we walk in the doors. Everyone is a student, and everyone is welcomed with a smile. I guarantee you will learn something new and you will push yourself more than you thought possible – with the help of Brian and his crew.

When I left the session I was awake, and I felt so accomplished that my workout for the day was done. Throughout the rest of the day, I had a ton of energy and I was able to achieve all my tasks – no coffee needed.
