Our Founders

We felt a need to connect with each other and thought... surely more women want to also!


Abby Clark, co-founder

Abby's been in the fitness industry for over 10 years with an extensive background in yoga, kettlebell training, and competitive bodybuilding. A few years ago, Abby discovered MovNat, a physical education system that teaches movement from a practical and natural approach with an emphasis on movement efficiency. This broader perspective of fitness gave Abby a deeper purpose as a trainer and how she wanted to help others.

Abby is currently the only female MovNat Team Instructor and is pioneering the way for more women to discover their true nature through natural movement and building a powerful tribe of confident and strong women. She teaches certifications and workshops all over U.S. and currently lives in the mountains of Santa Fe, NM with her husband, two-year- old son, and fur baby.


Dani Almeyda, co-founder

With more than 10 years in the fitness and health promotion industry, Dani has found her place as a sought after coach.  With many years of competitive sports behind her, her body was beaten up and she was feeling broken.  She opened her eyes to new forms of training outside of her love for volleyball and discovered Pilates, kettlebells, and the power of bodyweight exercises.  This brought her into a new world and she helped discover and grow the Original Strength System as well as open the doors of the OS Institute in North Carolina.  

Dani is constantly driven with a fierce passion, to make the world a better place through introducing people to movement and hope. She is traveling the world teaching for Original Strength as the only female Master Instructor and currently lives in Fuquay-Varina, NC with her husband, son, daughter, and their dog.
