Exasperated by the No-Pain, No-Gain Approach?

For all the treatments you’ve had, all the grueling workouts you’ve endured, and all the money and time you’ve spent trying to feel and look better, do you ever feel like you’re frustratingly left with more pain than gain?


When it comes to creating positive changes in your overall health, the experience can often feel like you’re strapped to a pendulum, stretching you from one extreme solution to the other. Not surprisingly, many diet programs and physical fitness regimens are designed this way.


  • Western medicine prescribes medication, but what about healing the cause of the pain?


  • Diets suggest better eating habits, but what about addressing physical behaviors that get in the way of results?


  • Fitness trainers adhere to the “push through the pain” mentality, but what if this is counter-intuitive for what you need?


If any of this is relatable, you probably have been left with an inexplicable void, knowing that something is missing, just not sure what it is? If so, you’re not alone.

At Better Movement, our work with clients is framed around self-awareness, which is a by-product of self-love. That’s why our proven five-step method for healing utilizes a Yin to Yang style that honors the emotional investment you make in yourself and promotes better results, physically, emotionally, and spiritually.


Our approach to freeing you from a life of pain, so you can live your best life now, allows us to go beyond the surface issue of your pain, mobility issues, or even feelings of self-defeat. We do this by identifying the root issue of what is producing your pain, health, and emotional challenges.


Better Movement’s five-step method for Effortless Transformation Through Movement is designed to strengthen your inner power, which translates to improved outer physical movement; without pain. This process is delivered to you through your choice in personalized 1:1 or group programs that stabilize your muscles in a safe, easy, nurturing, and comforting space.muscles in a safe, easy, nurturing, and comforting space.

It’s Time You Start Feeling Worthy, Strong, and Deserving of Receiving the Best Life Has to Offer!

Hi, I’m Emily Deckard, founder of Better Movement. I’m a wholistic personal trainer and wellness coach who specializes in a five-step method that produces effortless transformation in your life, from the inside-out.


In my experience, extreme diets, the no pain, no gain workout mentality and western medicine’s approach prescribing medication without focusing on the root cause rarely establish long-term results. If anything, these all or nothing approaches not only prolong needless suffering but often leave you feeling helpless to achieve your desire for a pain-free and healthy quality of life.


If you’ve been subjected to any or all of the above-mentioned extreme approaches, you will be delighted to learn there is a better way to getting in shape and creating a healthy life. It’s from the inside out. That is why at Better Movement, everything begins with self-awareness.  


Our programs are framed around the principles of self-love and are designed to balance your physical presence with your mental, emotional, and

spiritual essence.

All of what you desire is not outside of you. It's found within.

The quality of life you desire is not in a specific workout routine. Nor is it in a diet.
It's inside of you. 

As a former athlete in high school and college, there was a time in my life where I was in constant, never-ending physical pain. After doing literally EVERYTHING the doctors, physical therapists, and nutritionists said, and after taking the prescription medication that was supposed to address the issues, it became painfully clear to me that something else was going on.


I decided to take matters into my own hands. It took many years of research, and deep-level personal exploration to uncover the true nature of the physical pain I’d been in. Much to my surprise, I learned how it all correlated to the emotional, mental, and even spiritual suffering that was largely undetected or addressed by western medicine, mainstream nutritionists and physical therapists.

Today, after 15 years of integrating all of this research and personal experience into my life and the lives of my clients, not only am I living a pain-free life, but many of my clients are regularly exclaiming happily that the five-step method we use at Better Movement is helping them more than their doctors. And guess what? It costs a lot less than what all of those medical procedures, prescriptions, and trips to the doctor office is costing.

I help you to transform your life, from inside-out and achieve your desire for a pain-free and healthy quality of life.

Hi, I’m Emily Deckard, founder of Better Movement. I’m a wholistic personal trainer who specializes in a five-step method that produces effortless transformation in your life, from the inside-out.

Whether you’re working with me from a distance, attending one of my workshops or you’re entering our renowned, transformation portal in Sacramento, California, you will never be subjected to temporary fixes or the tough-love, drill sergeant approach to better health.


In my experience, extreme diets, the no pain, no gain mentality to working out and prescribing medication are all part of the “temporary relief” and “temporary fix” approach to pain and healthy living. Without focusing on the root cause “temporary relief” can prolong your suffering and leave you feeling helpless to achieve your desire for a pain-free and healthy quality of life.

"Emily is LOVE! She works from the inside out. She puts her heart and soul into helping people. So far, I've lost 70 lbs in 7 months and she is making this journey feel effortless. Thank you, Emily, for continuing to help me look and feel better!"

-Joe Madrid

How Much Is “temporary relief” Costing You?


Hi, I’m Emily Deckard, founder of Better Movement. I love to help all of my clients look at things differently when it comes to exercise and nutrition. The key to shifting your perspective on health, however, is not from fixating on “temporary relief” but taking a big picture approach to lifestyle habits. 


For this reason, whether I’m speaking at a public event or speaking 1:1 with my clients, I’m always talking about the big picture when it comes to your overall health.


What Is the Big Picture for Improving Your Health?


The big picture I’m referring to focuses on the root cause of your physical and emotional pain. This picture is framed by self-love and self-awareness.


Without self-love and self-awareness as your foundation for better health, what you’re seeing when you look at your health can be quite limiting. It’s this limited view that keeps millions of people on an emotional merry-go-round with ‘temporary relief’ options.


This is why I started Better Movement and created our five-step method. With my guidance and the five-step method we use to work with clients, they immediately see the physical, emotional, spiritual, and financial benefits of a personalized work out program framed around self-love and self-awareness.


"When you love yourself you glow from the inside. You feel better and healthier! You attract people who love, respect and appreciate you. Everything starts with and how you feel about yourself. Start feeling worthy, strong, and deserving of receiving the best life has to offer. Be magnetic." 

Self-Love & Self-Awareness Is the Foundation for

Your Success

At Better Movement, we always address your mind and spirit first. At no point do we push you into areas you’re uncomfortable with or that may end up injuring you.


From our initial session together, we’re looking at getting right to the root cause of your existing ailments and working together to create energetic shifts on an emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual level that deliver long-term benefits.


Everything we do with and for our clients is framed around self-love and self-awareness. While this is the foundation for our client’s success, our process for navigating your inner and outer challenges is achieved through a five-step, proven method for living a healthy and pain-free life.
