OUR TEAM

Austin Moore DPT, CSCS

I was born to a military family and have moved around quite a bit but have spent most of my life in the eastern suburbs of the twin cities. I did my undergraduate schooling at Drake University and received my Clinical Doctorate of Physical Therapy from the University of Minnesota.  I have also earned credentials as a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist along with Functional Dry Needling. 

I believe that the human body is a powerful machine and I am passionate about educating and empowering others to become stronger and to move better.  As someone who has experienced wide ranges of physical fitness in my life, I believe education and knowledge of the human body enables a strong and healthy lifestyle.

Ryan Maxwell CPT, CES

Founder - Fluid Health & Fitness, National Presenter & Master Trainer (US Armed Forces, Mayo Clinic, YMCA - Sports Ready Youth Programming, Lifetime Fitness, Anytime Fitness), National Academy of Sports Medicine continuing education provider, Celebrity trainer (Jillian Michaels’ “Bodyshred”)

Growing up, I lived in a household where my parents and extended family struggled with obesity, metabolic and sociological diseases. We went to coaches, counselors, and therapists looking for guidance on how to get our health under control. I realized that while these individuals had good intentions, there was always something missing. One would focus on diet but give little advice about exercise. Another would give lifestyle and emotional support but disregard movement. The net result was more confusion and frustration than achieving meaningful change. I realized then that to be truly successful, a person needed to have multiple coaches who all worked together. But who had the time or money for that? We certainly didn’t.

That’s why my vision for Fluid Health and Fitness was born from the need to deliver what the health and wellness industry was lacking: a system that considers and balances all of the elements of health and wellness in a way that fits into your lifestyle. One that meets you where you are at: not where we want you to be. And one that teaches you how your body really works.

Anna Brown PTA, CMT

My goal in life is to help people to feel and move better at any stage in life. 

 

Through my education, training, and experience I understand how the body moves and feels better when every part of the body is moving together than individually. I have a degree in Human Performance from the University of Wisconsin- River Falls (UWRF). I became a Physical Therapist Assistant from St. Catherine University. I also understand what it feels like when it's in pain and injured. During my years at UWRF, I was introduced to rugby. I played rugby competitively for 14 years, playing for a club team here in the cities and making all the way to the National level before retiring due to injuries. 

 

Through that experience, I have been pursuing ways to restore my health and wellness as well as to help others in the same situation. I first trained as a massage therapist, helping people with pain and injuries. I was not satisfied and wanted to do more. I was looking for an overall approach to health and wellness, so I went back to school to become a Physical Therapist Assistant getting closer to my goal of helping people to move and feel better. I finally reached my goal here at Fluid, when I became a Movement specialist, helping people at all stages in life, to move and feel better.

Alissa Nogle CPT, CES

Going from chronic back pain at the age of 13, a major back surgery at 25, 2 kids, countless races and three marathons later, I have extensive life experience in rising above chronic pain and injury to feel better. Working with adult runners in groups such as Moms on the Run and Life Time Run Club revealed the myriad of compensations in human movement and the resulting injuries my athletes were experiencing (including my own).

 

Frustrated by my lack of understanding, I chose to pursue the answers to these issues by diving deep into human biomechanics, and that’s when I found Fluid Health and Fitness. Fueled by my passion for fitness, coaching, and training, I completed the Certified Personal Trainer and Corrective Exercise Specialist programs with the National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM) and am actively working toward my Human Movement Certification with the Brookbush Institute. I’m here to help you relieve your pain, understand your body’s movement patterns and learn how to manage them to improve your athletic performance and/or daily life. You only get one body. Invest in it and nurture it.
