We are a 501c3 non-profit whose mission is to serve women who are serving others in our community. If you have a pair of XX chromosomes, you are serving. It’s how you are wired up! We believe that when you are unhealthy physically that can lead to being unhealthy spiritually and emotionally. Your relationships can start to suffer. A healthier you makes a better wife, mom, friend, coworker to be hands and feet for God!
You’ll love our instructors. They voluntarily share their wealth of knowledge and passion for health and God with you so you can live the healthy lifestyle you have always wanted.
How much to join Nmotion? We are 100% donation based, relying solely on donations from the women who grace our studio doors. We encourage women to make a monthly commitment after their free trial visits, because we’ve found that it will not only help the studio to carry on in its mission but will also help encourage women to stay committed to their health. We accept varying donation amounts by request, allowing you to give as you are able.

Our signature class offered at nmotion is the TRINITY Class: a full-body workout that includes RIDE (indoor cycling) LIFT (strength training) and FLOW (stretching, flexibility & balance), fused with awesome worship music, scripture, prayer and meditation. RIDE, FLOW, LIFT, and MOVE classes are also offered separately.
**If you have not been to the studio since 8/16/14, please be sure to create a NEW LOGIN**
RIDE is a high-energy indoor cycling class that takes the focus off pushing past your limit and puts it on increasing your sensitivity to the presence of God in your life. You will ride to the soundtrack of inspiring Christian worship music while reflecting on a particular verse or part of biblical scripture provided to you through your instructor.
LIFT is a strength training class that focuses on building healthy bones and strong muscles to empower your body to do God’s work. We provide weights as our instructors guide you through a vigorous routine that helps to firm and build muscle strength. We focus on inner strength, we leave the guns and 6-pack abs at the gyms!
FLOW classes use scripture, physical postures, breathing techniques and meditation to draw you nearer to God. The postures are simply a vehicle to improve flexibility and balance and increase strength. The breath calms the nervous system and overworked mind. Together, FLOW prepares your body to enjoy a prayerful time in His presence.
TRINITY is a class that combines RIDE, LIFT and FLOW into one full-body workout. For you multi-tasking women, get your cardio, strength and stretch AND your time with God at the same time!! This powerful class will have you sweating and shouting hallelujah. You’ll definitely end this class with an amen.
FUEL is a class that promotes the benefits of eating a plant-based, living foods diet. This class includes guest speakers, movies, education and food-demos. We also offer a variety of workshops throughout the year that include Made to Crave, Weigh Less to Feed More and the Hallelujah Diet.
MOVE classes are designed to get you moving in all planes of motion. Think about how we move in our routine lives. We walk, run, and pedal forward. We don’t spend a lot of time moving sideways or twisting from side to side. By practicing movement in multiple directions, you’ll gain balance, strength, speed and flexibility. You’ll feel better overall, have more energy, and be more agile.
MOVE class includes four basic components: warm-up, cardio, strength, and flexibility. With a good dose of surprises and laughter thrown in for good measure! We won’t be training for the Olympics or yelling like drill sergeants. All are welcome.
GROW classes are simply small group gatherings to study or discuss a book, THE BOOK (The bible, of course!) or any other book appropriate for improving our health and deepening our faith while building friendships along the way! We believe that GROWth is the evidence of life!
SOAK is not so much of a class as it is an opportunity to enter in to a quiet time of reflection, prayer, praise and journaling. A time to “Be Still and Know.” The best investment you will make in your day, we promise you that! Leave refreshed, restored and renewed.
A healthy lifestyle should be affordable and available to everyone. That’s our belief at Nmotion. We accept varying donation amounts by request, allowing you to give as you are able. You won’t find contracts or long-term membership requirements here.

Before Nmotion, Nancy thought of exercise as something to do to work off her oatmeal cream pies. She now finds her worth in what God can do through her rather than what she looks like on the outside. She tells her best stories when she can talk with her hands, but she loves her hands best when they are reaching for her favorite snack – popcorn. Married to Rogers and mom to five children and two pets, she feels God when she gets on the bike to spin. Although she’s afraid of flying, Nancy has a way of helping others find their wings and soar.
An original “spiritual spinner,” Vivian enjoys seeing women grow in their potential through Christ. She loves music, the beach, and once recorded a TV commercial in Spanish that aired in Charleston. Since she dislikes cooking, her favorite restaurant is Vickery’s in Shem Creek. Married to Mike and mom to two teenage children, Vivian creates a safe environment for all women who enter the studio.

A high energy instructor, Kimberly believes her faith has deepened since coming to Nmotion. She misses the ease of sleep that children seem to have and her favorite mode of transportation is on horseback.

Beth was a self-described “couch potato, least likely to do anything physical,” until running her first mile at age 40. God used those early steps to foster in her a love of movement, and she discovered a deeper relationship with the Lord as she ran a little farther each day, praying and listening to Him in the process. God cultivated in her a thirst for worship through movement – with running, Spinning, and Holy Yoga. Each discipline offers both movement and stillness, and helps her intentionally apply her life verse, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength… Love your neighbor as yourself.” (Mark 12:30-31)
In her work life, Beth is Senior Vice President of Marketing for South Carolina Federal Credit Union, headquartered in Charleston. She is blissfully married, the proud mama of three grown and amazing sons, Grammy to the most fabulous three biological grandkids on the planet, and blessed to be stepmom to three more grown sons, seven grandkids, and a great-grandson.
Beth is a certified Spinning® and Master Holy Yoga Instructor (M-HYI).

Darlene used to have a strong distaste for exercise before coming to Nmotion. Now, it has become a primary way of worshipping the Lord and serving others.

From TRINITY to Ministries, here are answers to some of our most frequently asked questions.
RIDE takes the focus off pushing past your limit and puts it on increasing your sensitivity to the presence of God in your life. You will ride to the soundtrack of passionate Christian worship music while contemplating a particular verse or part of biblical scripture provided to you through your instructor. RIDE is not just about meeting a particular heart rate or exceeding a certain pace. It’s about you connecting with Jesus through the act of taking care of your body because you love Him and you love yourself, too.
No. We recognize the need for resistance training. Most weigh lifting classes focus on the external appearance of building a muscular exterior. We focus on inner strength and core strength. If your goal is to have the perfect body, well, we know of only one perfect person who walked the earth, and he didn’t give a darn about his guns and abs. Our strength training focuses on healthy bones and muscle that support the body to do God’s work!
We operate as a non-profit organization so we can apply all proceeds toward the expansion of the goals of our ministry. We plan to provide health and wellness through connection with Christ to women of all ages. The studio is reliant upon volunteers. The leaders and instructors do not receive compensation. They each give generously of their time, treasure and talent to further the mission.
Nmotion makes wellness discipleship available to everyone. An individual should not feel excluded from fitness because of a price tag. No matter what your financial situation, we will make it possible for you to experience the benefits of our facility in order to become healthy and whole.
It is simply stretching our bodies in various postures designed to increase flexibility, balance and strength. FLOW uses breathing techniques and meditation to facilitate an opportunity to get healthy, to make space, for communion with God, the Father and the teachings of His son, Jesus Christ.
“For in him we live, and move, and have our being;” ~ Acts 17:28
We have simplified the RIDE/LIFT/FLOW classes into one whole-body, 75-minute workout that we call the Trinity Class. Each class ends with 5 minutes on the mat for treasured time of meditation, reflection and receiving of God’s love.
God connects to us by way of spirit, but He also requires of us to connect with the natural/tangible world. We can limit the power of God or tie His hands when we are not balanced in our own bodies. God commanded our bodies to be presentable, holy and fit for service. We can believe that spiritual strength and physical strength are carbon copies of each other. But we recognize one feeds the other. Nothing can exist but that which is created in the spiritual. Then the physical must be capable of supporting what the spirit of God pours in.
In order for us to continue serving women who serve others. We depend on Support from the women who grace our doors in order to stay open. Nmotion exists to provide a place where women can come and be good stewards of their bodies while exploring their relationship with Jesus Christ. We do not operate like other gyms or fitness facilities. Instead Nmotion is a ministry that has turned overall control to the One who called us to serve in this capacity. We rely on His provisions and we will not exclude those that cannot pay. To God be the glory!
Our facility provides a Christ-honoring environment where you can care for your body without feeling judged or in competition with others. We focus on the quality of health of the entire body: emotion, spiritual, physical and mental. In a gym, it is easy to become distracted by what other people are doing and what you are not able to do. Sometimes you can also be distracted by your ability to do things better than others. Nmotion intentionally creates an atmosphere where the primary focus is Jesus Christ and your relationship with him through your holistic health.
Make sure to bring water and a towel to every class. We encourage you to wear firm soled tennis shoes for the cycling classes. We recommend arriving at least 15 minutes before class starts. Mats will be provided for the TRINITY and FLOW classes.
A ministry is comprised of a body of people who seek the meet a particular need in a community. Jesus provided the pattern for Christian ministry. He came, not to receive service, but to give it. The women who shepherd Nmotion provide a Christ-centered environment for health and wellness. It is our responsibility to show you why health and wellness is an essential component in our Christian faith.
