Move more. Build strength. Transform your body.
Be happy with how you feel and look.


Sanuk Movement was created by me, Brent Thompson – a Certified Personal Trainer, Yoga Instructor, and Thai Yoga Massage Practitioner. My mission and passion is to help you move your body in the most optimal, strong, sustainable, and efficient way possible. I will help you to reach your fitness goals, increase your strength, improve the quality of your movement, and transform your body in the process. 

I believe movement needs to be a regular part of your life. I have seen first-hand that a lot of the issues we have in our bodies stem from a lack of movement which has become the norm for the majority of us. Body pain, weight gain, bad posture, chronic fatigue, difficulty breathing, poor sleep, irregular digestion, anxiety, and depression are just some of the major problems that I can help you overcome by making movement an essential part of your life.

Online Coaching picks up where in-person Personal Training leaves off. While Personal Training is great to help you show up and complete a training session, it is lacking for helping you to make some serious lifestyle changes and to develop strong habits outside of the gym that are going to stick in the long run. With Online Coaching, you actually get a whole lot more – and for a whole lot less money than Personal Training! Plus. Online Coaching works around YOUR schedule – no matter how hectic.

With Online Coaching, you get unparalleled support and accountability to ensure you finally reach your fitness goals. I will help you to identify the obstacles in your life that are hindering your true potential of achieving these goals. From there, we devise a plan, and I will be there every step of the way to guide you and make sure you stick with it. In the process, you will develop the skills, habits, and discipline needed to get the results you deserve!



I've always been the skinny guy who couldn't put on muscle no matter how hard I tried. I've had multiple coaches throughout the years, but never was able to make any progress that stuck.

On top of this, I had ongoing issues with my right shoulder for years that had prevented me from doing a lot of exercises without experiencing pain. My upper body strength and ability to put on muscle had suffered because of this.

I started training with Brent a little over a year ago. At the time, I couldn’t do a single pull-up without experiencing pain. Now I routinely do over 30 pull-ups in a session without any pain in my shoulder. Brent has found a way to make training completely pain-free. I have made significant gains in strength and have put on muscle not only in my legs and butt, but finally in my chest, back, and arms too. I have been getting compliments on my physique - people can actually tell that I workout and am putting on muscle!


I was looking for someone with a holistic approach, using gym sessions as the foundation to build strength, improve posture, and generally start to feel good!

Getting started was easy. Brent created a tailored plan to get everything moving in the right direction, and he consistently tracked my progress. His easy-going but professional approach makes working with him a pleasure, and has ultimately made working out something to look forward to rather than a dreaded hour of torture.

8 months on, I have seen great results, feel much more confident, and most importantly have built the discipline and found the motivation to make health and fitness a key part of my lifestyle. I couldn't be happier with Brent and his coaching!

I’m fortunate to run an online business from the comfort of my own home. Which sounds amazing! …Until you realize that includes ‘working from the couch’ (#ouch) or writing content in bed.

So at 32, the back pain I had was excruciating. It was to the point where I doubled over in pain right before walking on stage to speak at a conference. No more, thank you. Then I found Brent.

Today looks nothing like it did before. No pain. My posture drastically improved. AND… I can deadlift 100lbs—like a boss.

What’s even cooler is that our work together spills over into other areas of my life, business included. This process of committing to myself to working out 3x a week with the help of Brent shows me that change happens when you commit to showing up—and putting in the work—consistently over the long-haul. My body and my business are better for it.
