After experiencing the frustration that comes when workout results plateau and the cost of personal trainers seems prohibitive, Melody Chandler decided to become a personal trainer herself. Her goal: to help those just like her find a results-driven, empowering, and affordable solution. She shed the extra pounds that came along with hypothyroidism and four pregnancies, became a nationally-certified AFAA personal trainer, and founded Texas Fit Chicks to share her weight-loss strategies and support with other women.
Her all-female staff of certified personal trainers helps exercisers of all fitness levels shape their bodies during group fitness classes. In an effort to challenge muscle memory, the team shakes up workout regimens by using different techniques and equipment?including kettlebells, resistance bands, and lead sweatpants?each day. Melody?s team also helps exercisers retain their results by supplying nutrition support with meal plans and recipes that use healthy ingredients.
