Staying Fit Never Gets Old!
Functional Fitness for Adults
We Meet You Where You Are
Motion 4 Life Fitness
M4L is a fitness family of adults, exercising to regain or maintain an active, independent and healthy lifestyle. Our highly qualified staff create a feeling of community, meeting you where you are in your fitness journey and then helping you reach your fitness goals. Our team includes personal trainers, a registered dietitian, an emergency physician, a psychologist, and friendly hospitality staff. The new state-of-the-art facility and fitness equipment are designed specifically for adults.
Founder's WelcomeI started Motion 4 Life Fitness as a way to prevent falls, general medical decline, and loss of independence. As a practicing emergency medicine physician for over 25 years, I have seen many injuries with physical, emotional and lifestyle implications.
Training PhilosophyAt Motion 4 Life Fitness our professional trainers will create an individualized exercise program for each member based on health history and a fitness assessment. We believe proper guidance, instruction and encouragement is vital to a successful exercise program. Therefore, most of our memberships include personal training, either 1-on-1 or small group (2-4 people).
Class Descriptions & SchedulesAt Motion 4 Life Fitness we have created our own unique classes which complement our small group and 1-on-1 personal training. These will include balance, agility, cardiovascular and flexibility training. Research has shown these skills are important for improving quality of life, longevity, and independence. We will assist you in scheduling the most appropriate classes for your current skill level and systematically progress you through different levels. The M4L classes will be fun, challenging and thought provoking!
Classes will be 30-45 minutes and include a 5-10 minute warm up to prepare you for the upcoming workout and a 5 minute cool down for faster recovery and improving flexibility.
What Our Members Say
“All of the staff here are amazingly supportive. It is common to hear shouts of encouragement from staff and other members. I like to refer to the gym as my “Cheers” where everybody knows your name. I feel that I have finally found the perfect place to continue my health and fitness journey for many years to come.”Amy, Member M4L
“Motion 4 Life has been a godsend. Since I moved to Carmel two years ago, I’ve searched for a gym that was designed and structured to meet my goals of weight maintenance, strength training and cardio health; and do so in an environment both friendly and sophisticated. Nothing met those requirements until M4L. M4L fits all those goals and more. The staff is knowledgeable and committed to meeting my needs; AND the setting is better than the spa at the Ritz, with first class equipment and competitive pricing. Check it out. It is well worth the visit.”Sue T, Member M4L
“Motion 4 Life has been a godsend for me. As a retired nurse, I knew the importance of exercise but was not consistent exercising. Working now with a personal trainer has been fantastic. I definitely have seen improvements. They utilize a fitness plan suited to you. Working on cardio, balance, and strength training has been a great overall workout. Would highly recommend to anyone!”Marilynn, Member M4L
“I have been coming to M4L for just under six months. I had two goals when I joined: 1) increase upper body strength; and 2) improve my posture (right shoulder hunching in from too many years of sitting at the computer and carrying a heavy brief bag on my shoulder). I am happy that I have made progress on both: I can lift all I need to around the house and garden (even that big bag of water softening salt); and although my posture is not perfect (yet), I am sitting much straighter and am less tight in the neck and shoulders. The trainers (Dave and Karena) have made it easy to follow an effective exercise routine. The entire staff at M4L has made it fun to workout.”Marta, Member of M4L
