    Practicing "movement" at Loco Motion New York has had such a positive influence on my life over the past year. Loco Motion New York is so much more than a “movement” practice. For me, it is a place of self-discovery. It is learning and conquering my “fears” that I never knew existed. It’s tapping into a place in my mind that allows me to move freely with grace and humility. It is easy? No; Does it challenge you and take you to places you never thought were possible? YES, YES, YES!

    The Community itself if amazing. The energy that fills each class is like no other. Yes, we are serious in our practice, but also playful. We are always learning something new, always kept on our toes as to what comes next. I have met some amazing friends, which are more like family, that will last a lifetime!

    Come check us out, you will not be disappointed!

    Over the last several years my exercise training reached a plateau but I felt there had to be more. From the moment I stepped into Loco Motion I knew I found what I had been searching for, and then some.

    I never would have thought I could find a place that can not only take my physical training to a new level but open my mind to a whole to way of thinking. I have learned all my limitations are in my mind and if I stop the excuses I can achieve anything I can imagine.

    The different style and techniques the three teachers bring to their classes provides a perfect balance of Physical, Mental and Spiritual awakenings that cannot be explained but understood the minute you walk into the studio. It is a must to experience by all.

    Locomotion you ask?? Let me tell you about this place of elegance. Most people join a fitness facility to look better right? This is a superficial goal. The deeper goal is to function, live, play, work, FEEL better. To eliminate fear even! Always. For whatever your own personal reason, Locomotion tackles each issue without you even realizing it, and from odd angles (literally). There is not one aspect of their training that you cannot take from their space and apply it directly to your daily life.

    Let me shoot you a hypothetical. You're in the shower, lathering up all nice. You drop the soap before you finish. Uh oh. Now you have to immerse your half lathered body into the pounding shower water to retrieve the soap you have carelessly dropped... or do you? Nay I say. Now, you can use the bending, twisting, and every day life skill-set you've developed from Chris/Kevin/Mario's golden nuggets of wisdom to turn your body in such a way to avoid this high pressure flow of H2O and safely scavenge your slippery bar of clean. All while maintaining stability, balance, integrity, and strength.

    This may be a silly analogy, but I'm a silly guy, and have 100% thought this myself. That, and I've been going for 5 months now. In indescribably ways has this helped me! I can't say how many times I've fallen at odd angles, saved myself, and thought, "damn I wonder how that would've gone if I hadn't been going to Loco". Seriously, give it a try, just once. If not, you'll always wonder how it would have been.

    When I first started coming to Loco about 6 months ago I was suffering from a severely herniated disc in my lower back. I went through physical therapy, and even though I was told to have normal range of motion my bod was in pain, which was at times crippling. I even had some doctors tell me that I should consider surgery in the future. However, after 3 months of mindful training with Kevin, Mario and Chris I experienced breakthrough after breakthrough. While there are still some lingering effects from my injury my body overall is stronger, more flexible and more mobile that it as ever been. Not only that, but the community that has developed at Loco Motion is so incredibly positive and supportive that I would encourage anyone - regardless of where you are physically and what your goals may be- to give it a shot.

    There is nothing quite like Loco Motion offered anywhere on Long Island. This place is completely unique, as are the classes and the students who fill the room. There is an energy of focus, commitment, curiosity, discovery and patience as we all progress differently in our practice. It never feels like a "workout" to me, but a process of self-discovery and having fun. I come to class to feel good, and Loco Motion never disappoints.

    By breaking down the movements and re-teaching ourselves how to move in the most natural, 'organic' form, as well as reminding ourselves of basic, face-to-face human interaction, we all get one step closer to connecting to our humanity each time we come to class.

  • Stephanie A. , Loco Motion New York Testimonials

    I was never one to make fitness a priority, I would periodically workout to improve my appearance but would fall off due to boredom of monotonous routines or overarching priorities taking up my time. I found yoga in college and stuck with it mainly due to the meditative flow state I could achieve while working my physical body. The combination of mind/body work was appealing to me. This same concept is what I've found at Locomotion, but with even more challenge and diverse application. The training at Locomotion is considered a movement practice which sounds seemingly vague to an outsider, or maybe even silly. A concept we've recently discussed in class is the tendency to reject or mock something we don't understand out of instinctual fear of the unknown. A practice that encompasses strength training, fosters creativity, embraces authenticity, and explores the human psyche, I am hooked! It truly is the offering of a lifestyle and culture that hones in on the things that matter, what we as a community need more of. There's only so much that can be said with words, you'll just have to come see for yourself.

    Locomotion is definately not a general “gym” by any means, its much more than that. I started at locomotion 6 months ago and am still amazed at how much progress i have made in that short amount of time, i have learned so many different things that i will now carry with me for the rest of my life and teach others who are interested in it. One of my favorite things about coming to locomotion is that every single day/class is different so its impossible to get bored. Initially i was hesitant to come try my first free class because i had seen pictures of some of the moves performed in class and i thought to myself theres no way i could do that however i have learned that its all about little progressions, and patience.The results will come with dedication

    LIFE CHANGING! This method of training is truly essential and fundamental for building a strong body AND a strong mind. Kevin, Chris, and Mario are literally redefining the meaning of "functional strength". The training practice takes bits and pieces of ideas from existing disciplines like sport, martial arts, dance, gymnastics, weightlifting, etc. In January 2018, I suffered from recurring back injuries from the "conventional" training I had been doing (standard bodybuilding and crossfit style gym routines, cardio sessions, yoga, etc.) I was no longer able to squat and deadlift due to my pain and lack of mobility, and I was constantly hurting myself during Brazilian JiuJitsu training (a grappling art similar to wrestling). It debilitated me to the point that I was no longer able to lift or train at all. I took a hiatus from everything I had been doing, and I began taking classes at LocoMotion 3-4 days/week from January until now (April 2018.) Last night, I went back to JiuJitsu and my teammates were astounded at how much strength and mobility I had gained over the time that I had been gone. They were all asking for my secret... I give 100% of the credit to my LocoMotion practice. Not only is the training extremely efficient and effective, but the community you find at LocoMotion is like no other. It attracts a certain crowd of like-minded individuals who are looking to better themselves and live a healthier, longer life. I firmly believe the quality of your life is directly tied to the health of your body. If you train at LocoMotion, I can guarantee you that you will make more gains in a short period of time than you have made in years of conventional training. I cannot say enough good things about the facility itself, the trainers, the Loco community, and the practice that is being taught. This is for EVERYONE; every age, race, gender, condition, etc... Everything we do is scale-able to your current level of ability, and you will be surprised at how quickly you progress from a beginner into being able to do things you never thought you would be able to do. In just 4 months, I'm astonished at how far I have come. I will stick around and learn from these guys for as long as I possibly can, as they are a wealth of knowledge and genuinely care about their students. Stop whatever you are doing and join this "gym". It will reshape your entire perspective on health, fitness, lifestyle, and what it means to be "strong".

    I love this place. Coming here is the best part of my day.

    Kevin is extremely knowledgeable, highly motivating, and just awesome to be around. I've never been to a gym with a better vibe. Everyone here is encouraging and helpful. We work together and have fun together, like family. We hike, share food, play games and just enjoy life to the fullest.

    I have always been an active person. However, being a chronic exerciser most of my life left me with a lot of imbalances due to overuse, injuries, lack of prehab, the list goes on. Loco Motion has taught me balance and to listen to my body. Here you will learn how to not only take care of your body, but your mind as well. And, with hard work, you can learn some really cool human tricks. I'm capable of doing things with my body at 42 years old that my 18 year old self never dreamed of. With Kevin's guidance and support, I also know I'm safe.

    The beauty of movement is that everyone can do it. You have a body, it was meant to move. If you don't feel well, all aspects of your life are effected. I am in the best physical and mental shape of my life thanks to Loco Motion. I highly recommend it to everyone.

    Currently coming off a back injury and loco motion is the perfect place for my spin to get the movement it needs to heal. Space has great energy & playful programming that will remind you why “playing” as a kid never felt like a gym chore.

    Just when I thought my fitness journey was coming to an end, I realized it has only just begun! This practice challenges your mind and body in so many ways. I have a new appreciation for my body and celebrate its ability every day with something new taught by the amazing coaches here. My only regret is that I haven’t started sooner. Loco Motion is a home for all people, all levels, all ages. My daughters especially love “training” here with me! Loco Motion allows me to improve my strength, flexibility, mobility while also setting an inspirational example for my young girls. Thank you Kevin, Chris, Mario!

    I’ve been training in martial art my whole life. Trying to use things such as Yoga and all sorts of weight lifting to help, nothing has improved my practice and overall well being more than training at locomotion.

    At the end of the day, it’s how much Kevin and Chris care about their students, and craft that keep me coming back.

    If you’re looking for a gym that you can put your headphones in and walk on the treadmill this isn’t the gym for you. If you’re looking for a gym that facilitates your growth both physically and mentally this is the gym for you. Everyone has areas of strengths and weakness. The staff at Loco Motion work with every student in their own individual program all while in the class setting. Everyone’s needs are different and Kevin, Chris, and Mario are more than accommodating to everyone. I have trained BJJ for the last 2 years and have dealt with multiple injuries. Loco Motion has given me the tools that my body needs in order to use it for as long as possible. As a Registered Nurse working in a nursing home, I see firsthand patients who are unable to move and wish they moved their bodies while they could. Now unable to get out of bed without the help of a mechanical lift, they lay in regret. If you care about your health and you’re still lifting things up and putting them down at Planet Fitness, I recommend you put down the free pizza and try a free class at Loco Motion.

    Great place, supportive environment to reach whatever goals you put in front of yourself.

    Kevin Chris and Mario do a great job of tailoring each class towards a person's personal needs to gain a more functional body through flexibility, strength, coordination, and movement.
