We Offer a Variety of Services to Help Our Clients Reach Their Fitness Goals and Maintain a Healthy and Positive Lifestyle.
At Custom Fitness we provide both private and semi-private training. Private training is for our clients that would like that personal and individualized focus without training with other clients. Our Semi-Private training is along the same lines except it is done in a small group setting, still allowing for that individualized focus from their trainer but in a more social setting. Aside Personal Training we also offer Yoga, Prenatal Yoga, and Fit Camp, see our schedule for dates and times!
Being Healthy and Staying Healthy isn’t only about the work-out that you engage in, it also centers around what you ingest into the body. Our nutrition services are complimentary and our trainers will work with you to find out what needs your body has in regards to nutrients and maintaining a healthy balanced diet.
Pre/Post Natal Training
Prenatal and Postnatal Training offers our clients the chance to explore healthy nutrition plans geared towards eating for two, as well as an opportunity to shed their baby weight and get their bodies back into a healthy place.

Every client has different goals and needs. At Custom Fitness, we like to sit down with each future client for a fitness consultation to discuss those goals and needs. This way we can customize a solution for the client. We don’t sell “per session personal training” but rather custom client solutions. With that being said, you can get started with us for a little as $90.
Our environment is unlike other gyms. We provide an upscale, exclusive feeling from the moment you walk in the door but at the same time, our studio feels more homelike than any you might encounter elsewhere. Our goal is to provide an atmosphere that makes people feel comfortable because we know how hard fitness is in the first place, having a place that you can comfortably get to and enter is a big plus.
We do offer a 21 day guarantee for our services to ensure that we are the right fit for you. If it is not the right fit, it is not worth it.
At Custom Fitness each workout for our private and semi-private clients is customized to their unique abilities and needs. For our Small Group Training Clients each workout is customized to the goals of the group. Our workouts include functional training with minimal or no equipment. (You will be shocked at what amazing results you can get without huge machines). We do this to ensure that you are able to perform your workouts anywhere, anytime. Each workout will include the following components: muscular strength, muscular endurance, cardiovascular endurance, flexibility, balance, and moderate power, etc. Each workout lasts 45 minutes or less but is designed to be highly efficient and effective. Our clients may workout for half the time of their friends outside of Custom Fitness but will definitely see greater results!
YES! Arthritis is a condition that creates an absolute need for movement. “If you don’t move it you’ll lose it” is talking about YOU. When arthritis attacks, movement will help ease the discomforts associated with it. Our private and semi-private programs would be perfect for you. We customize each workout around your physical abilities and your goals. We utilize several techniques and programming styles to suit your needs. On the other hand, with our private and semi-private training you will also receive custom nutrition counseling which will lead you into a plan of eating less inflammatory foods which can definitely help the pains of arthritis which are usually made worse with inflammation.
While we are able to suggest proper supplementation and do offer both Advocare and Arbonne supplements at our studio (neither are on auto draft), the answer is NO. We believe that FOOD is your best choice when it comes to the intake of vitamins and minerals, healing the body and enhancing your health. When needed we are happy to suggest specific supplements that may enhance your body’s abilities, but it’s never a “have to” situation.

Custom fitness was started in 2006 by Kris Stokes, a native Amarillo’an. We are not a franchise or fitness chain but rather a local business that truly cares about the people of Amarillo and the surrounding areas. “Big business” isn’t something you’ll find at Custom Fitness but rather down to earth people who have a true passion for helping others achieve their health and fitness dreams.
Stretching is best done warm. It’s usually best to perform a set of “warm up” exercises to get your workout started and finish with stretching. The same is true even in classes like yoga. You’ll notice that the instructor will start with smaller movements of beginning to stretch and building into the larger movements to create deeper stretches. If you were to stretch “cold”, you would need to make sure not to push your body to your “warm” abilities which could cause harm. Rather, back yourself out by 3-4 inches of the stretch that you would normally perform when “warm” and hold for 30-45 seconds to ensure the muscle has had enough time to elongate.
Cross Training (not to be confused with Cross Fit) is utilizing several methods of exercises to work the body from all fronts. An example of this might be doing a strength workout on Monday, a yoga workout on Tuesday, a cardio workout on Wednesday and a Pilates workout on Thursday. Combining different modalities of exercise into your current training regimen will give you the most benefit. This can be done by changing daily or even by using periodization where you might train one specific way for the first month and then switch to another one specific way for the next month.
Cross Training (not to be confused with Cross Fit) provides a stronger foundation of health and balance within the body. By utilizing different training modalities and ensuring you are encompassing all of the major physical needs within the body, you will feel better, move better and enhance your workouts to a point that your goals will easily be within reach. You might even feel better in areas that you didn’t realize “didn’t feel good in the first place”.
