-- Two years ago, Aim 4Fitness
owner Kathy Mullins knew she wanted other women to experience the type of fitness achievement she had. After conquering her weight and self-image issues by adopting a healthy lifestyle, eating well and kickboxing, she knew what it felt like to take control of her own health and feel strong.
So, with 25 years of accounting experience and a certification in cardio kickboxing, Mullins opened a small women's facility off Brad McNeer parkway. Offering only cardio kickboxing to her members, Mullins created an environment where women felt empowered. Starting from scratch, Mullins had no members, but quickly grew to a 40-member facility within six months of opening.
Two years later, Aim 4Fitness has moved to a 3,400 square foot studio located in the Waterford Shopping Center in Midlothian- more than double the size of the first location. With over 120 members, Mullins has expanded her offerings to include Piloxing, Cage Fitness and a number of fusion classes to keep members moving. Many members have been at Aim 4Fitness since day one and claim Mullins and the atmosphere she provides has given them the confidence to conquer high fitness achievements.
"I wanted to have a place where women could come to a friendly environment, have fun working out and see amazing results," says Mullins, "My driving force has always been to help women feel better about themselves and know the strength they have within them."
Especially important to Mullins is involvement in the community and giving back to others when she is able to. Partnering with the James House, Mullins created donation based self-defense classes open to any woman who wanted to learn how to protect herself. Over the holidays, Aim 4Fitness participated in Operation Christmas Child, creating shoeboxes filled with essentials for those in need.
For her two-year anniversary, Mullins is having a members- only morning on March 1, 2014, complete with classes and a DJ taking requests for the workouts. "Really... I have the best members!" Mullins says. "They are what makes this studio fun an encouraging... for me and everyone around them."
Classes at Aim 4Fitness boast women at every fitness level... from the very fit to those just starting on their journey. Mullins makes a personal connection with each member, pushing them to redefine their limits. And in doing so, having fun is a priority. From 80's theme nights to group competitions, the women at Aim 4Fitness are having fun while getting fit.
Mullins plans to continue to incorporate new programs and classes for members, including ramping up her Cage Fitness and kickboxing offerings. Says Mullins of the years ahead, "Is there's one thing my members know--I'm always looking for new ways to change up their fitness routines and challenge them!"Located in the Waterford Shopping Center in Midlothian, Aim 4 Fitness offers group fitness classes in a supportive environment that support big results.
