With state-of-the-art equipment and a design aesthetic to kill for, our functional movement studio delivers the luxury of a 5-star resort coupled with group classes (link text), one-on-one coaching (link text), and kickass events (link text). From Pilates Reformers to a circus of props for strength training to plie jumps at the barre, our team of expert instructors will work your whole body across three foundational pillars: SWEAT, STRENGTH & SOUL. We believe a little bit from each every week is the magic sauce behind unleashing your biggest, baddest, most-inspired self, which is why we offer a complementary 20-minute Find Your Formula.

Meet Our Instructors
Tessa is our Chief Boss Babe. She’s been dreaming about building our Maven community since she got up the guts to leave the corporate world a handful of years ago. She’s obsessed with collecting adventures with her babe, learning every day, loving hard, and doing scary things.
Mission: Teach you something about your body you can apply outside of the studio in every single class.
Expect: Passion and intensity.
Rocky is our Chief Misfit Officer. She has a quirky sense of humor, laughs loudly, and talks supersonic fast. When she’s not brainstorming marketing strategies for Maven or sweating in a studio, you can find her soaking up desolate wilderness with a fly rod and her pups or jetsetting around the world.
Mission: Challenge your capabilities by strengthening from the inside out.
Expect: Lots of energy and a sore core.
Sammy is our Director of Community Experience, which means she gives you all the feels. This sweet and sassy babe comes to us from Seattle and New York, bringing with her lots of sweaty knowledge from both coasts. When she’s not pulsing and preaching at the studio, she’s securing media placements for her clients as a lifestyle publicist.
Mission: To remind you what a bad ass you are.
Expect: All the vibes, a whole lotta burn, and a strong chance of singing along while you sweat.
Jen is no bull, but with a big heart. She gets to the point, gets shit done, and makes you feel magical throughout the entire journey. If she’s not changing the landscape of Maven for the better, you can find her on one of her many bikes (road or dirt) or enjoying the tastes of the town.
Mission: Work smarter, not harder.
Expect: Your wildest dreams to come true with the wave of her wand.
Al (short for Allison) is known for her crazy motivational toughness, a combo of sweat-dripping, heart-pounding circuit moves and soothing words that push your body and your brain into a winner. When she is not in the studio you can find her playing in the mountains to rock climb, ski, trail run, and hike the tallest of peaks.
Mission: To show you how strong your mind and body are in the moment.
Expect: A motivation push to give it your all and see the true capabilities you possess.
Allison is our Queen of Technical. As a modern dancer and long time instructor, she will give you minor adjustments that will change your world.
Mission: Getting you to understand the fundamentals.
Expect: Be prepared for a deceptive challenge.
Bailey is a passionate dancer with a BFA in Dance from Westminster College with a BFA in Dance. She has had the privilege of performing with Brine Dance, the Deseret Experimental Opera, and the NOVA Chamber Music Series. As an actor, she played “The Doll” in Steve Yockey’s Bellwether at Westminster College, and was a chorus member in the Classical Greek Theatre Festival’s production of Prometheus Bound. But we know her best for her love of horror movies, sustainable fashion, and (her attempt at) being the funniest person in the room.
Mission: Make you feel all the good vibes 24-7.
Expect: An equally sweet and salty personality that surprises and delights (with a side of giggles).
Candace is known for her sweet demeanor, until she sneakily makes you shake; you’ll love the relief she grants after a difficult exercise though! She holds a kinesiology degree from the University of Utah, but when she’s not in the studio you can catch her in the mountains; either, mountain biking, dirt biking, snowboarding or camping with her husband and two dogs.
Mission: Beauty is created from the inside out.
Expect: Musical distractions to help ease the burden of what’s to come.
Catherine grew up in the City of Salt kicking athletic arse and taking names until she ran faster than Mighty Mouse on the track at the UofU and graduated with a degree in Therapeutic Recreation (we didn’t even know this kind of magic existed). In addition to working closely with OCD and eating disorder patients, coaching high school Track & Field, and playing endless sports throughout her career, she is also passionate about Pilates–which is exactly why we snagged her. This go-go-go mama is always moving and she’s guaranteed to make you feel her enthusiastic rhythm, too.
Mission: Don’t Stop Movin’
Expect: A workout that skips the unnecessary flare and focuses on delivering the REAL goods (yep, the moves you love to hate because you feel it days later).
Heather is a professional when it comes to making you feel comfortable in your own body. She’s been around the block a number of times with her own injuries, so she knows every modification. When she’s not teaching, she’s chasing three munchkins from the soccer fields to the mountains.
Mission: Keeping you uninjured while you burn.
Expect: Upbeat pace with a killer knowledge base of millions of moves.
Jen loves what she does, which is why you can find her planning and scheming up different workouts at all hours of the day. The studio is her haven away from her wild banshee boys she’s constantly chasing.
Mission: To give you something different every single class.
Expect: Moves that leave you thanking her (or cursing her) the next day.
You know Josa’s sweet smiling face, but do you know her evil twin who makes your legs? You should come meet her. On her off days, she’s letting her inner hippy out somewhere in the mountains or at a music festival.
Mission: Help you realize that self-love isn’t selfish, it’s critical for your happiness.
Expect: Time to get serious and focus deep.
Layne is a soul-finder, gem-lover, and all-around enthusiast about everyone and everything. Guaranteed she’ll be your BFF in no-time. She believes that if you wake up everyday and clean your teeth, why wouldn’t you also clean your soul? No wonder she can instantly fill your cup with goodness and unveil your inner goddess.
Mission: To help you create a life you love, whether on the mat or off.
Expect: A bag of powerful tricks, tools, and resources that aren’t just a work out, but a work in.
Liisa is a stickler for details. You will get attention to the finer tuned adjustments in her classes. She loves building to more advanced moves, so be ready. When she’s not teaching you, she’s enjoying the great outdoors with her husband and rug rats.
Mission: To teach you a move you never thought you could do.
Expect: Progressions to build on every week for maximum results.
