Storytelling - A Tradition Of Hope

One thing you will notice about us,
we love telling our Stories.

Our Stories are our vehicle of Hope. When someone goes through hell and comes out the other side, their Story is another persons’ Hope. Their Story signals to someone who is beaten down to keep fighting. It tells someone who has given up it’s possible. When you can bring Hope to someone who feels hopeless, you can change the trajectory of their life. What greater contribution is there?

You will also find that our Stories are our benchmarks and bragging rights for our Coaches. Our Coaches purpose is to create Stories. When we are creating stories, we are impacting lives. That’s our that’s our benchmark.

Our message to you is simple. We want you to be our next Story. And we want you to be someone’s Hope.

– Matthew Lister, Founder of Align

Jamie’s Story- Neck & Knee Pain Journey

“This is my one life with my one body, and I don’t want to be held back. I better build good things now. When I am in pain, I can’t do what I want to do. Then pain is making choices for me instead of me. I don’t want pain to choose for me what I will do. So I am choosing today to partner with Align, so I can choose what I want to do tomorrow.”

Jeen’s Story- Low Back Pain Journey

“On a grander scale my low back improvements with Align have re-established my trust level. I can now make travel plans with no particular concern for slipping into a back spasm. One of the most important and meaningful areas of my life is traveling to spend time with my out-of-town family. My successful Align journey thus far has significantly improved the quality of my life, both outwardly and inwardly.”

Carrie’s Story- Low Back Pain Journey

“What I’ve learned is that I was fit, but not strong. Most of us know about our major muscles but give little thought to all the little ones behind the scenes. Without those, we are lopsided and compensated, which causes all sorts of pain problems.”

Sandra’s Story- Knee Pain Journey

The doctors diagnosed me with arthritis and told me I had very little meniscus left. My knee was “bone-on-bone.” I was also told knee replacement surgery was in my future, but I should delay it as long as possible so I wouldn’t have to have another surgery once the initial one wore out.

Jason’s Story- Knee Pain Journey

“I knew it was something special when I came in for my first session and Matthew had me on my back for most of the first class.

Donna and Her Family

Donna’s Story-Strength & Stability Journey

“I searched many gyms in the area and landed at Align. After my consultation with Matthew, I was convinced that my new adventure into the land of trap bars and machines equipped with weights and pulleys was best led by someone who came highly recommended, had conquered a harrowing physical struggle of his own, and possessed an energy that captured my interest. I wanted to be a part of what he was offering.”
