The H-town Story
Like many great inventions, The H-town was born out of a garage.
In 2005, Theo Tsekouras was looking for a sytem that would help him be the best firefighter possible. He tried them all and to no avail. That is until he stumbled onto a small website called CrossFit.com. That single first step helped change Theo's health from Sickness into Fitness.
Today, H-town has expanded to 2 locations … and growing.
The first H-town location opened in Houston, TX in June 2010 in a 234sf garage. The response was overwhelming. All 60 memberships sold out in less than 4 months, with a waiting list to get in.
From there, H-town expanded and sold all 300 spots in less than 1 year. Enter Seth Lawrence, Theo's business partner and H-town's Director of Training. After experiencing his own life-changing transformation as an H-town client, Seth partnered with Theo to open the second location, on North Durham Dr in Houston.
The rapid success of this second gym — which is close to selling out all memberships — proved that H-town was onto something.
If you’re looking for the reasons behind H-town’s success, you’ll find dozens.
Here are just three:
Fun — It’s more than a workout. You get fit in a group, with new exercises to challenge you, and new friends to cheer you on. You can call it a community. We call it inspiring. Our member athletes don’t have to be here — they want to be here!
Fast — Our program is designed for busy people with busy lives. That’s why you’ll find some of the most successful people in town here. Get in, get fit, and get done in about 45 minutes.
Fitness — H-town combines body movements (gymnastics), personal coaching, and healthy nutrition, in a safe, supportive program. For male and female athletes, ages 16-70 (so far). Our members lose weight, gain strength, sleep better, enjoy more energy, and experience a total life change.
