StudioMOVE! is a privately owned fitness studio located in the quaint hamlet of Mendon, New York in the historic, cobblestone, Mendon Academy building. Don't let the outside fool you...inside there is plenty happening. With over 40 fitness classes per week, everyone in the family can "get their move on!". Several varieties of Yoga, Pilates, TRX, BodyPUMP, spin, turbokick, PiYo, and total body conditioning classes are offered. The facility has 3 separate work out rooms, so many classes run simultaneously.
StudioMOVE! is located near the four corners of Mendon. Heading south on Route 64 (Mendon Ionia Road), the studio shares a driveway with St. Catherine’s church. A generous amount of client parking is conveniently located at the rear of the building. Inside the picket fence, you'll find the main client entry. Wheel chair accessible entrance also available.
About the Owner, Christine Brush
Opening a fitness studio that makes fitness attainable for every-body has been a long term goal for Chris. Her childhood exposure gymnastics and dance, specifically ballet, fueled her interest in movement. Beginning with the aerobics explosion, Chris began teaching group fitness classes and has continued training in this ever changing field.
Teaching for former studio owners, Jeanne Maginn of Muscles and Carol Murphy of FitLIfe/Reebock/YMCA, gave her a solid foundation for recognizing local trends and needs of the area’s fitness enthusiasts. During this time, Chris was also certified in Rep Reebok, Stability Ball training, AFFA aerobics, and Reebok Step. Prior to opening StudioMOVE!, Chris mentored with and worked for Ryan Heminway owner of Pilates of Pittsford. This experience with the Stott Pilates Method has given her a solid foundation and experience in teaching all levels of Pilates Mat and Reformer. Her technical approach to teaching, has made her a strong instructor of various styles of TRX. She recently completed the Barre Above training and is working on creating her own version of Pilates Flow. Her investment of time and resources into attending industry workshops with MindBody, Idea, and other professional organizations keeps the studio class offerings current and fresh.
