Trainer and fitness guru Justin Bradshaw modeled SGT. H20's CombatSwim after the rigorous training he received as an Army diver. His challenging exercises encourage full-body fitness, using workouts that build stamina, boost metabolism, improve swimming skills, and promote weight loss. Incorporating the best of land-based cross-training systems, CombatSwim includes plenty of high-intensity interval training and pulse-hiking calisthenics. In the pool, water adds extra resistance that amplifies the effects of the exercises, which include swimming sprints, endurance swimming, and treading water with weights. Designed to sharpen the mind as well as the body, CombatSwim leaves exercisers with the same confidence and conditioning as some of the world's elite military warriors.
As a high-schooler, Natalie Tailford became hooked on the sense of peaceful floating that comes from practicing yoga. Later as an adult, she found a way to get that feeling of inner floating both literally and mentally. After spending years in a cubicle, she left the corporate world and ventured out on her own to open Float On Yoga. She graduated from the Divine School of Yoga Therapy, and, as a certified yoga therapist, her average workday now includes meeting clients in breezy area parks. Using the calming waters of Lake Grapevine and Lake Lewisville as studios, Natalie or another Float on Yoga instructor teaches yoga to up to five pupils at a time as the class floats on standup paddleboards. The hybrid classes follow the mantra "Breathe, balance, float," which seeks to align body, mind, and water wings as students practice watery asanas and cobra poses.
