who we are

At MVMNT we place safety before ego; we emphasize patience over recklessness; and we compete with ourselves, not each other. 

Our training philosophy is built around creating a deeper understanding of your body and taking personal ownership of your well-being. 

We believe that clear intention--in whatever you do--is critical to success.

Our members are young, old, slow, fast, big, small, skinny, fat, strong, weak, students, engineers, business owners, doctors, nurses, moms, grandparents, lawyers, waitresses, teachers, cops, soldiers, and everyone in between.

Our program design allows for mobility & skill practice, strength training, and high intensity conditioning to be progressed up or down to meet the member’s individual goals and needs. By building a solid foundation through stability/mobility and strength training, and an emphasis on the development of technical proficiency of basic movement patterns, we help every member make steady progress and remain injury-free.

our facility

The gym is located at 305 Cherokee Street adjacent to The Brumby Lofts. Parking is easy with over 30 dedicated spaces.

Our 6,000 square feet of space is outfitted with full men and women ADA compliant locker rooms with multiple showers and private changing space.

In the training area, right away you’ll notice the absence of treadmills, television, tanning beds, requests for referrals, or other distractions that typically waste time and decrease productivity. The music is a reflection of the environment and the workouts – there will be no “light rock” over our speakers.

We are equipped with 1000 square feet of turf, certified IPF ER racks, barbells, iron plates, bumper plates, plyometric boxes. We created a locally built custom pull-up rig, sleds and prowlers. We use gymnastics rings and stall bars, standard and competition kettlebells, medicine balls, and sandbags.

Becci Holcomb

Becci first started powerlifting in October of 2013. She competed in her first USA powerlifting competition the following April. She placed first in her weight class and set all new USA Powerlifting Georgia state records. Since then Becci has progressed to compete nationally and internationally, most notably winning the 2017 USAPL Open Nationals. She recently set a new American record and unofficial world record deadlift of 271kgs/597.5lbs. This is the heaviest drug tested deadlift ever done by a woman. Powerlifting has taught Becci how to be physically and mentally strong. It has also taught her how to appreciate and love her body regardless of what society pushes on her. She brings the life lessons she has learned from her own journey in powerlifting to coaching both novice and experienced athletes.
