What attracted you to be a part of Muscles in Motion? Muscles in Motion opened in June 2007 with busy people in mind. We understand there are lots of ways to workout, and lots of ways to get results, but I wanted a place where everyone could get a great workout, have incredible results, but not have to compromise their joints, spine, knees etc. With our Muscles in Motion methods, that are based in science/bio-mechanics, we know that we will have you feeling wonderfully strong in a short amount of time.
What kind of contribution do you feel like you’re making to people’s health? Just look at any of our clients and you can see the difference. Some are playing more golf, some are playing better, some are carrying their own luggage for the first time in years, others have more energy, some are helio-skiing, dancing and playing better basketball & golf. What they all have in common is enjoying a higher quality of life.
What personal goal for the future do you want to share with us? As an owner, I want to provide jobs to those in the community. When you meet our staff you’ll see service minded people who put the clients first. We are proud of our team members from the Front Desk Associates, to our Personal Trainers. Come in for a workout and you’ll see it too.
PATRICK LONG ^
– Strength Coach / Professional Personal Trainer
- American Council on Exercise Certified Personal Trainer

- Functional Movement Systems, Level 1
Interests: Sports, including martial arts, running, obstacle course races and football (GO SEAHAWKS!). I also enjoy music and reading, and most of all, spending time with my family.
What attracted you to work at MIM? When I was beginning my career in the field of Personal Training, I figured I would have to “learn the ropes” at a large box gym, and work my way up to somewhere that placed its value on the importance of the client, not the price the client pays. I was blown away from my very first interactions with MIM. The customer service alone made me know this was the place I had to be, and as I continued to learn about strength training, I knew this was the right fit. I feel very lucky that I had the opportunity to start my career at the place where I had originally hoped to end up.
What kind of contribution do you feel you’re making to people’s health? The more I’ve learned about strength training, the more I realize that everyone should be doing it in their own capacity. I’ve learned that there are no non-responders to this style of training. As such, I’m driven by the notion that I am helping people live the lives they desire, and feel healthy doing it. Wether its people looking to prepare or recover from a surgery, setting an athletic goal they never thought they’d achieve, or age gracefully and feel better in their busy daily lives as parents or grandparents, I’m inspired by the opportunity to be of service.
What personal goal for the future do you want to share with us? I want to continue to learn about the field of Health and Fitness so I can continue to aid people in their own journey of well being.
CORRADO PITARI ^

- AED/CPR certified
Interests: Running, Soccer (Juventus), and Basketball (Trail Blazers). I also enjoy listening to podcasts, and watching Netflix comedy specials.
What attracted you to work at Muscles in Motion? Coming out of college with an Exercise Science degree, I wanted to be able to work at a company that allowed me to not only apply my knowledge, but also continue to increase it. At Muscles in Motion, I was really impressed with the emphasis on evidence based workouts, as well as the focus on developing relationships with the clients. I could not think of a better place to start my career in this industry because although I am done with school, this company makes me strive to learn more.
What kind of contribution do you feel like you’re making to people’s health? In my opinion there are few things more satisfying than progress. Our bodies are incredibly sophisticated machines, often, however, we do not treat them as such, and as a result we leave behind a lot of unlocked potential. At Muscles in Motion, we strive to make small incremental changes that in the long run amount to huge progress. Guiding people through that journey, and being there to encourage them to push beyond what they think they are capable of is not only the biggest contribution I can make to their health, but it also a great privilege.
What personal goal for the future do you want to share with us? The biggest goal I have currently is to further my education with a doctorate degree in chiropractic care. That’s a little ways down the road though, and who knows what life has in store!
