Who we are & what we offer

We are Chapel Hill Movement Gym — affectionately known as Chill Movement. to be North Carolina’s standard bearer for mindful strength, mobility, and overall movement training. We specialize in kettlebells and calisthenics, but we use any tool gets the job done: maces, clubs, gymnastics rings, and more. You’ll learn to jump, throw, climb, roll, fall, tumble, lift heavy things, and move with purpose. And to do all that with confidence and stability, not fear or pain.
If you want to be:
  • stronger
  • more flexible
  • more durable (aka less likely to be injured)
  • more coordinated

Chapel Hill Movement Gym is the place to help you get there.  You just have to provide the time, commitment, curiosity, and moxie.

Come try us out!




what to expect

Our group classes:

  • Are accessible to all fitness levels. From complete newbies to seasoned athletes — everything we teach is scalable, allowing for all levels to work together in class. 
  • Will rely on a variety of different modalities and equipment, such as kettlebells, bodyweight, Indian clubs, weighted clubs, maces, parallettes, gymnastics rings, and more.
  • Will build your strength, increase your work capacity (AKA cardio  — though ours is much different than what you may have experienced), assess and improve your motor control and generally try to optimize your mind and body for whatever your particular needs and goals are.
  • Are coach-led, so you’ll receive plenty of constructive feedback.

Arguably the best part of group fitness is the community aspect. You can do quite well working out on your own, but doing so with a group takes things to another level!
