Mojo Fitness

Move! Let the right music get you moving!

If you were born before 1980, odds are you remember when “partying like it’s 1999” was the way to get a sweat-dripping, endorphin-pumping, calorie-burning workout. No treadmills needed. We were too busy rocking it out with the B52s or practicing our Michael Jackson moves. Music was our personal trainer, ‘the gym’ was a large boom box in the basement, and “obesity” was an obscure medical term.

Main Line moms, daughters shake up their workouts at Mojo Fitness.

How often do you and your teenage daughter have fun together these days?

For local moms who’ve discovered Mojo Fitness classes, it’s an enviable two nights a week.

On Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6:30 to 7:30, up to 50 Mojo mavens – about half of them mother-daughter duos – shimmy, squat, sweat and sometimes get silly together in a Paoli gym.

Self-medicate! Move your body - your brain will thank you.

Let’s say you’ve been awarded the biggest project of your career but have only one week to whip it together. Do you keep your weekly workout or ditch it?

According to scientific research, the resounding answer is: keep it! Exercise is life’s secret weapon; it’s a natural medication that helps you feel more confident, focused and energized. (Addiction to this drug is actually a good thing.)
