Q&A with Camille Hamilton, Owner-Operator of Body Evolution Training
Tell us about your business.
Our facility is a breeding ground for a new life, a fresh start, and a next-level fitness experience.
What inspired you to start or run this business?
Our goal is that every individual who walks through our door is treated with the utmost respect and attention. So many people don't make time to take care of the body that takes care of everyone else. We believe getting you through our door will be a win-win battle for both of us, but you making the choice to keep coming back is what's going you make you a warrior!
What is something most people don't know about your business?
Every month we include a free nutritional seminar with your membership. It's a time to weigh in and take measurements (optional), but, most importantly, we honor the "Change Maker" of the month. That person gets on the Wall of Fame at the studio and gets their next month’s membership free! This is not decided by just inches and pounds lost alone. It's a collective honorarium based on a multitude of criteria including attitude, attendance, and overall fitness improvement.
When Barron Jackson craves beauty, he doesn't always seek out a colorful sunset or a dramatic thunderstorm. For him, one of the most stunning sights to behold is a lifestyle that's changed for the better. As a certified personal trainer, Barron knows lots of people who embody this type of beauty. Many are his clients, who he coaches in boot camps at X-Train: A Fitness Community. During his indoor and outdoor camps, exercisers of all levels chase their fitness goals through intense workouts that pair motivation with cardio challenges and functional strength training. In addition to sculpting muscles with kettlebells and TRX suspension straps, participants forge friendships as they cheer one another on toward personal bests. A certified trainer supervises each session, stressing proper technique as the group performs core-toning bodyweight exercises such as push-ups and calorie-torching plyometrics such as jumping jacks. To help clients achieve a healthy BMI, Barron's team also provides free measurements, weigh-ins, and body-fat assessments along with nutrition classes.
The instructors at Yoga Studio of Corpus Christi help students focus their minds and calibrate them to their bodies. Thoughtful breathing exercises and strength-building poses are consistently the vehicles toward mental and physical balance, although the studio offers diverse challenges across 14 different class types ranging from 65 to 90 minutes each. Those just starting out can learn the ropes in a beginners session, whereas yogis looking for more intense workouts can attend Hatha flow classes, which build core strength and improve stamina through continuous movement and by teaching pupils how to apply papier mâché to their midsections. During hot-yoga classes, the instructors crank up the thermostat to 97.8 degrees, helping to loosen stiff muscles and joints, encourage detoxification, and increase flexibility during Vinyasa flow movements.
In keeping with its name, Crossroads Yoga acts as a meeting place for yoga practitioners of all backgrounds, ages, and skill sets. The certified instructors believe that devotion to yoga is an ever-evolving process that benefits from new experiences and styles. They draw upon their diverse training backgrounds, which include extensive traveling and lessons from yoga experts, during private and group classes. They also invite guest teachers to present a range of disciplines during workshops. Practice takes place atop hardwood floors within a picturesque pink-and-white house whose porch bears seasonal decorations.
Nicole Raglin founded Synergy Fitness and Pilates to reach and strengthen the underused muscles in all her clients’ bodies. A certified Pilates-Reformer teacher, over the years she’s added Anusara-yoga instructor and two forms of personal-trainer certifications to her resumé. Each of these avenues opens up more ways for her to teach people about fitness or to help society realign its spines. With the aid of six other wellness experts, Raglin’s studio holds classes seven days a week, with styles ranging from the dance-fitness fusion of Zumba to the intense bodyweight-resistance training of TRX suspension harnesses. The core of her studio’s classes remain the Reformer-based Pilates classes that started her own fitness journey.
Results Personal Training enlists certified male and female trainers to piece together personalized fitness and nutrition plans that target time-specific fitness goals and allow for anytime onsite access. When paired with a client, each trainer crafts a program geared toward desired results—such as muscle gain or weight loss—and an ultimate end date, which can correspond with upcoming weddings or long-awaited preschool reunions. One-hour workout sessions then draw on an armory of free weights and Pilates balls to activate different muscle groups and prevent bodies from adapting to the routine. With trainers always on standby, clients can walk in on the hour to start a training program without an appointment and report to the center an unlimited number of times per week.
Before each patron’s first workout, an on-staff nutritionist outlines a healthy meal plan customized to his or her needs. Each menu includes the amount of calories that they should consume per meal and day, a list of foods that rev up metabolisms, and arguments to convince tomatoes that they are vegetables. Clients can visit their nutritionists at any point during their membership, and weekly analyses of their progress ensure that they are staying well on track to meet their health objectives.
