At CrossFit BodyInMotion we believe in an integrated approach to movement based functional fitness. Working capacity and increasing movement complexity through CrossFit and MovNat form the cornerstones of our programming.
Our mission is to help you find the way to a healthier lifestyle through movement, nutrition and mindfulness.
At the moment the CFBiM gyms are the only ones in Asia to offer a customized MovNat training environment that is fit to train for any level in Natural Movement, as well as the only Level 3 certified coach in the region. Currently we are building a team of MovNat coaches of L1 and above, both English and Chinese speaking to accomodate our future branches throughout Shanghai.
Our head coach Oki Alexander was among the first to be certified in the MovNat system. Trained as an architect but raised as a mover he mostly specialized in martial arts during his youth. Frustrated by injuries due to his specialization he searched for a more holistic and sustainable way of training and found MovNat. Now he believes that the best way to grow old gracefully is to train the way our body is designed to move, and ever since this has been the foundation of his training regime.

Joshua Primero, San Francisco, CA
In his youth and high school days Josh was an active kid doing things like Tae Kwon Do, Soccer, Basketball, Tennis, and Squash. Then college occurred and five years of pizza, beer, and computer staring took it’s toll and made Josh fat, out of shape, and lazy.
With a master’s degree in Computer Engineering in hand Josh took his programming skills to Silicon Valley to pursue a career in software but he realized something was missing. He started trying to get back in shape and started doing obstacle course races like Tough Mudder. Then one momentous day, he came across the MovNat video of Erwan on Youtube doing MovNat. “This is exactly what I was looking for” he thought.
After doing his first MovNat workshop Josh became hooked and went on to become one of the first certified MovNat trainers. Josh did this because he honestly believes in the liberating power movement and nature can have in everyone’s lives. Now with SFMovNat he is looking to share his movement discoveries with the lovely people of the Bay Area.

Josh grew up playing in the woods, climbing trees, skateboarding and pretending he was a ninja. As an adult, he got involved in the martial arts and found himself drawn to the efficient, practical and engaging training methods of Gracie Jiujitsu. Discovering Movnat through a friend, he immediately fell in love with the system and found it to be a perfect vehicle for developing fitness, connecting with his environment (whether it be urban or in natural settings), expressing creativity and being mentally engaged and enjoying movement.
Josh sees Movnat as the perfect way to help his community reclaim a healthy lifestyle through practical, natural and efficient movement and his goal is to simply help people accomplish their goals in a fun and engaging way.
