Why Consider an Inursha Personal Trainer?

  • Knowledge - Inursha personal trainers are certified and/or degreed in exercise physiology and kinesiology. They are constantly in touch with new information and techniques through continuing educational programs.
  • Motivation - You perform better when you are working with another person, especially someone who wants you to excel.
  • Maximizing Time Efficiency - You save time by having a thorough workout, pre-planned by your personal trainer.
  • Routine Updates - Your personal trainer can revise your program to maximize results and keep your workout fresh and motivating.
  • Coaching - The best athletes in the world have coaches, because coaches make sure you use proper form and technique during all aspects of training. A positive change in technique, however small, can make a big difference in your performance.
  • Safety - Since our personal trainers watch for proper form, this helps reduce your risk of injury. Your safety is a top priority at Inursha.
  • Commitment - When you know your Inursha personal trainer will be there each week, ready and encouraging, you are more likely to take seriously this partnership for your personal fitness. It means a commitment from us and from you!

Robin Thomas

Robin Thomas, owner of Inursha Fitness in Fort Worth, has educational background in exercise science, is a certified personal trainer and certified sports nutritionist. He is certified in baseball through the MLB Academy and specializes in Sports Specific Training. Having both coached and played baseball for over 30 years, he is knowledgeable and capable of working with athletes of all skill levels - from kids to professionals. In addition to his sports background, Robin was a national level bodybuilder, winning the title of Mr. Texas and finishing in the top three at the American Championships.

He believes that the better the athlete the better the opportunity is to become a great player. Physical limitations can prevent a player from developing into the best they can be. If a player can gain more mobility, core strength, and explosion, he will undoubtedly perform better. I can assure that the top players around the country are training on a regular basis and not just during practice.

Robin takes his diversified experience accumulated over 20 years as professional trainer (owner of Inursha Fitness, 2003-present), collegiate baseball player and professional sports specific athletic trainer into my programs. The programs that he develops are unique because they are based on knowledge from his personal educational background and experience.

It is his goal to provide a functional and safe program for each individual and give them an opportunity to be the best athlete possible.

Crystal Apodaca

Crystal's passion for health and fitness stems from the direct impact it has on our daily lives. Exercise enhances every aspect of physical and mental well-being and she strives to create training programs that help clients attain their fullest potential. The body is an amazing machine and you must incorporate exercise and healthy eating to keep that machine running strong! So often, people take their bodies for granted until years of neglect, bad posture and unhealthy eating take their toll.

Her main focus lies in creating muscular balance and core strengthening. Muscular imbalances can lead to excessive wear and tear on muscles and supporting structures if not corrected. Crystal keeps sessions innovative by incorporating the training philosophies of Pilates, Boxing, Yoga and balance training.

She's committed to helping her clients reach their goals and feels at the end of the day, "You get what you put in!"
