Brent Gallagher started his training career in the year 2000 in a small specialized studio in Alabama, and soon discovered his dream was to own his own studio. He wanted to create a space with a unique and energized look and feel, where trainers and clients would become family and the studio itself would become part of the community fabric. He wanted to build a special space with an energetic, motivating and positive environment-a place where he and his team could ultimately transform lives.
The Big Gym Boom
His goal was not only to transform bodies, but lifestyles. He set out to create a fitness studio built around a holistic approach that incorporated personal training, sports performance, coaching, Pilates, nutrition education and meal plans. Big gyms were popping up everywhere, so an intimate, personalized studio was a unique vision in the booming fitness business. How could he make his small studio stand out? The solution was simple: he would build in a prime location convenient to busy moms, executives and kids-they could come in, receive the utmost personal attention and get a 30-minute workout with 60-minute results. It would be a pristine fitness studio with a reputation for ultimately the highest levels of quality facilities and fitness training in Houston.
West U Fitness is Born
Gallagher moved forward with his mission and in January 2006, West U Fitness was born. With only two trainers and ten clients to its name initially, Brent called upon his wife and fellow trainer, Cassie, who happily came on board with her current client base in tow. His vision became a reality. Each day, more and more clients began showing up to join the remarkable West U Fitness community they were creating. Today, the team and the client base have grown to hundreds and continues its amazing but proficient growth.
