Is MovNat allowed so much fun?

Jeff “JT” Turner – Certification Team Instructor

M o v N a t

Jeff grew up in Southern California surfing and playing baseball. Back then his goal was surfing from early morning to the evening. Today his goal is still to go strong, from sun up to sundown, now it’s done more efficiently … and it’s way more fun.

Current Fitness Trends

After witnessing less than optimal training methods for athletes, Jeff created Fit2Play to focus on long-term athletic development for student-athletes, adults and teams. Jeff believed, early on, that an integrated approach to fitness was best to help minimize injury and physically prepare his athletes. He knew this couldn’t be accomplished with traditional strength training alone.

The Clear Path

Jeff worked with three incredible mentors that put him on the right path early in his career as a strength and conditioning coach … and he never stopped learning.

When Jeff was introduced to MovNat, it just made sense to him and he believes that it made everything else better because most of us have lost the ability to move well. As Jeff describes it, using MovNat to help people reclaim movement is the best part of what he does with his trainees.

“I love coaching — more importantly, I love coaching cool, relevant stuff. We can MovNat with anyone, any place, anytime — MovNat meets you wherever you are in life.  We were meant to move often and move well, but somewhere along the path we we lost it — time to get it back.”

Jeff and his business partner, Lori Crock, teach MovNat through affiliate MovNat Ohio, and they help people who want to move and perform better in sport and in life.
