About Marty

1.  What do you enjoy most about working at Uncommon Movement? 

Hands down, the people.  Both our clients and trainers are just an outstanding bunch of folks. They are down to earth, authentic, intelligent, and most of all, welcoming and accepting of us all!

2.  How would you describe the culture of Uncommon Movement? 

Smart and fun.  I personally like to be understand why I’m doing something, and why I should invest my time, effort and money in anything.  I hope to address that in what we do at UM. Things need to make sense to me but at the same time, I want to find joy in what I am doing.  I work off the assumption most people share that desire.

3.  I am inspired by:

Those that I can learn from, which is everyone!  Continual learning and growing is very inspiring to me.

4.  Favorite book/favorite vacation spot/favorite movie/color/junk food:

I love summer, water, and heat.  Everyone that knows me knows that.  So wherever that is, I’m good!  But I also love living in Minnesota. The people here really are something different, and in a good way. Nothing like the Midwest!

5.  How would you describe yourself?

I’m pretty much an open book.  What you see is what you get!  I highly value authenticity and transparency when working with my staff and clients.

About Kandace

“Being a teacher at heart, I find it incredibly rewarding to help clients achieve things they never thought possible. I custom fit every client’s program to meet their individual needs because I believe that fitness needs to “fit” the way and pace that each client learns and moves. It’s motivating for me whenever I can help a client realize their physical capabilities.”

“I have always had a passion for mindful movement. I started dancing at the age of three and haven’t stopped moving since. I studied dance at a performing arts high school and graduated with a degree in Dance from the University of Minnesota-Twin Cities, which is where I realized I wanted to share my passion for movement through fitness.

“Naturally, life led me into the fitness field where I have spent the last 10 years teaching and sharing my passion for movement as a fitness professional. I am experienced teaching in both private and group class settings, and I have worked with a wide variety of people with various physical conditions and abilities. My favorite part of being a personal trainer is building close relationships with my clients. Getting to know clients allows me to be the best trainer I can be to help unleash their full fitness potential. With my in-depth knowledge about movement and proper biomechanics, clients are guaranteed to have a safe, fun and educational movement experience. It is my goal to always help clients feel stronger, longer and energized after every session.”

“The older I get, the more I believe that moving well is important to living a healthy, happy life. Outside of the studio you will find me doing my own daily workouts including running, yoga and Pilates as well as weight lifting. However, I believe in a balanced approach to healthy living, so I try to cook healthy meals and spend time in meditation and prayer. I also love snowshoeing, kayaking, thrift shopping and crafting!”
