What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Mind Set is a community-based, full-service, fitness/wellness center with a specialization in adaptive exercise programs. It is important for everyone from athletes to weekend warriors to those with unique challenges to have access to quality exercise options.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I know many people with multiple sclerosis and they wanted an way to access wellness and fitness. We encourage our non-MS clients to achieve a higher level of fitness, [yet we still] make an impact on the MS movement.
What do you love most about your job?
Exercise has a tremendous impact on quality of life and I love introducing exercise to people. Exercise impacts everything from relieving and preventing depression, improving quality of sleep, lowering the risk of diabetes, boosting energy, lowering anxiety, increasing memory, and lowering the risk of dementia.

Jonathan Jackson wasn’t supposed to win the triple jump championship at the 2008 Penn Relays. A severely inflamed knee should have knocked him out of contention, but learning how to overcome obstacles was nothing new to him. As a child, he suffered a severe injury to his eye and gravitated to track since partial blindness wasn’t a barrier to entry. Despite his knee, he took the field at the Penn Relays in 2008 and pushed himself to win both the triple long jump and long jump, also earning the title of Most Outstanding Athlete that day.
Now that he’s beyond his days as an All-American athlete, Jonathan helps his clients meet and exceed their own goals at First Step Boot Camp. His classes move at an up-tempo pace and use the latest in sports science training techniques to dramatically shape and strengthen their bodies. Participants can also make use of his carefully cultivated 70+ page diet plan to learn fat-burning eating methods and recipes that include a chipotle quesadilla that can be used as a competition discus in a pinch.
Helmed by certified personal-fitness specialist and avid marathon runner John Thurmond, Thurmond Fitness helps clients achieve and exceed fitness goals with one-on-one training and motivating boot camps. Lindsey Mathes is a level 1 Crossfit certified trainer who is able to adapt to every client's workout plan, regardless of fitness level. The other trainers—one a Golden Gloves champion and former Olympic boxing team member, one an arena-football player and coach for elite athletes—empower their students with hands-on sessions in private, uncrowded gyms. They also lead outdoor TruFit boot camps throughout the area.
After transforming their bodies into rippling masses of sinew, pupils enlist the expertise of licensed massage therapist Naomi Jagim, who reduces the risk of injury with Swedish massage, deep-tissue treatments, and magic tricks with muscle knots.
A joint venture between a professional boxer and a team of successful kickboxing-equipment tycoons, Title Boxing Club maintains a network of dozens of studios spread across 29 different states, winning over a devoted clientele with its invigorating and engaging boxing- and kickboxing-themed classes. Each workout uses the heart-healthy exercise of cardio training to satisfy people’s innate desire to punch and kick something other than a broken jukebox. Participants build lithe, strong muscle tissue by delivering powerful blows to punching bags, and build flexibility and agility by practicing roundhouse kicks and hooks. Students can build their core strength and endurance with medicine balls and burpees, enlist a qualified personal trainer to practice their newfound skills in the ring, or just torch calories during intense full-body Power Hour workouts.
Under the watchful guidance of founder and yogi Brynn Byrne, the dedicated instructors at Elemental Yoga: North Texas Yoga Therapy help students boost core strength and detoxify bodily systems with their schedule of yoga classes. Classes vary based on skill level and intensity, with meditative flow easing practitioners into centering poses and advanced posture sessions helping seasoned students progress on their yogic journeys. No matter the class, instructors embrace the tenets of holistic healing, crafting sessions that can improve respiration, sharpen mental faculties, and restore energy lost during attempts to power the television with a stationary bike.
