With five children of their own, Neil and Denise Allman, husband-and-wife owners of Mighty Movement Academy, understand the value of keeping kids busy and active. They founded their business to encourage kids ages 11 to 17 to develop confidence and athletic skills in a positive, safe environment. “It’s our mission to build kids up while keeping them positively engaged physically, mentally and emotionally,” says Neil.
Neil Allman is the head coach and works with a skilled staff to teach track and field skills, weight and strength training, and flexibility and agility training. Denise Allman handles the behind-the-scenes work, including marketing and client relations.
Mighty Movement Academy rents space from Endorphin, located on the first floor of the Stanley Marketplace. Outdoor activities take place at the green space just west of the Stanley.
Currently operating their summer camp programs, Mighty Movement Academy offers one-week sessions from 9am–1pm or 10am–2pm, Monday through Friday. Kids learn the athletic skills necessary for any sport by participating in track and field activities, strength training, and games that teach coordination, agility, balance and flexibility. A half-hour lunch break gives them a chance to refuel. “It always amazes me how much a kid’s confidence increases as they build strength and become comfortable with what they can accomplish,” Neil says.
The academy also offers after-school youth fitness programs during the school year. Accommodating kids at all skill levels, eight-week sessions and multiple day/time options are available for middle and high school age groups. With six students to every coach, classes are capped at 12 students and two instructors to ensure ample one-on-one interaction, instruction and attention. Allman notes, “We love it when kids see that movement and fitness are important to their entire well-being.”
