Don't give up your fitness routine during your Gulf Coast vacation. Focus on fitness with a visit to the new MOXIE Lifestyle Fitness Studio at The Wharf in Orange Beach and enjoy a special visitor discount.

Keep Your Fitness Routine In Play While At The Beach

There is no need to give up your fitness routine just because you’re vacationing at the beach, say the owners of MOXIE Lifestyle Fitness Studio at The Wharf in Orange Beach.

The MOXIE Studio provides a cardio fitness experience that focuses on the development of health and wellness by strengthening the mind and body in unison.

Classes combine inspirational coaching, motivating music and challenging total bodywork.

With the focus on mindfulness, this studio provides anything but a dull workout routine!

Co-founders Amanda Bussey and Stephanie Christie have combined forces to offer seasonal rates for vacationers at their new MOXIE studio: a seven-day unlimited pass for $115 or a drop-in fee of $20.

Bussey, a native of Gulf Shores and a 200+-hour certified yoga teacher who loves sharing her story of transformation and passion with others. With a background in civil engineering and commercial construction and a new baby, Bussey found herself ready to finally make the pieces all fit together and redefine her lifestyle goals.

She spent years struggling to find the time and discipline to see the results she wanted. She focused on learning more about how nutrition and physical activity work together. Bussey knows how the stress of life can make fitness a challenging goal and is ready to share how working on a healthy mind can lead to a more healthy body.

Christie, diagnosed with breast cancer in 2009, faced many challenges and learned to view obstacles as opportunities to live a more meaningful, balanced and engaged life.

As a fitness instructor on the East Coast for the past 13 years, Christie’s passions for health, dance, and fitness combined into to one when given the chance to develop and create MOXIE Lifestyle Fitness Studio. Her vision for the MOXIE Lifestyle is to help clients create a balanced lifestyle that incorporates a hardcore workout that is inspirational, empowering and, most importantly, fun.

Victoria A. said she enjoyed her vacation workout at MOXIE. “I came to Gulf Shores with my family for the week, and my sister and I knew we needed to keep our workout streak going. We got the unlimited pass for the week and worked out so hard! The owners were so amazing and welcoming.”
