Head Over Heels Fitness's owner, Julie, had a lifelong dream of being a dancer, but by the time she got around to taking lessons, the usual ballet, tap, and hip-hop techniques didn?t appeal to her anymore. She dove into pole-dancing fitness, and loved the adrenaline rush she got climbing and twirling around a pole. After a move left her without a nearby studio to practice in, Julie found herself missing the company of strong women during classes, so she opened her own studio. Now she spends her days teaching special pole classes that combine pole dancing, yoga, and other techniques to whip bodies into shape in a fun environment.
After shedding the extra pounds that came along with hypothyroidism and three pregnancies, Melody Chandler founded Texas Fit Chicks Boot Camp 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.
