Who I Especially Like Working With


6776 Southwest Fwy

No Gym Membership Needed!

Thomas and Jennifer are absolute gems. I began working with Thomas in 2015, and I've stayed a member ever since. While I've not been as consistent as I would like to be due to a hectic travel and work schedule, Thomas and Jennifer have been so supportive, kind, and flexible. Their new system of having workouts pre-loaded onto an app is so helpful both when I'm in their gym and when I'm out on the road. I have never been athletic in my life, and they've made me come a long way! I have always been nervous about anything physical (especially in public), but they are so positive, motivating, and keep things fun. I've come to think of them as part of my personal circle. I've gone to the gym on many days when I feel like I need the endorphins and some encouragement from my favorite people! I cannot recommend them enough. I hope to remain a client for many years to come!!
