Hey there, we're Bud + Caryn Terrell.
Bud and Caryn Terrell, owners of My House Fitness®: Plano, feel they have been called by God to help people improve their health through exercise, nutrition and fellowship.
Since the opening of their studio in March ‘16, they have been blessed to see this calling come to fruition.
After years of moving their family around the country and world for Bud’s career as an operations and supply chain manager with Clorox, Bic and Colgate-Palmolive, they often dreamed of owning their own business so they could stay in one place and put down roots.
The problem was, they didn’t know what kind of business they wanted to own until Bud’s mother passed away from ovarian cancer in 2014.
Bud was very athletic as a child, he was a competitive swimmer in high school and college and reached the national championship level.
At the time of his mother’s illness and death, he was far removed from his swimming days; he was overweight, traveled 80+% of the time, ate poorly and was not exercising regularly. In conversations with his mother’s doctor, Bud came to realize that many of the co-morbidities that she was facing and even the cancer itself, were directly related to her poor diet, exercise and health choices.
After her death, he recognized that he was making many of those same bad choices himself and that it was time to do something about it.
Bud and Caryn quickly realized that their business should be health and fitness related.
This led them to My House Fitness, a company that values not only health, fitness and wellness, but that seeks to create a community where people from all walks of life can come to learn and “live better”. Bud and Caryn’s passion and goal is to educate and enable people to take the necessary steps to improve their health, eat better and smarter, and exercise.
They want their clients to learn to maintain their bodies while they still can, before it’s too late and damage becomes irreversible.
While Caryn continues to teach pre-school in McKinney, you’ll see Bud around the studio most days. Bud & Caryn have two children – their son lives and works in Dallas, while their daughter is studying Biochemistry and Microbiology at Oklahoma State University.
"We both feel like we've been called by God to help people and using their health + fitness as the vehicle. We're blessed to be able to be a part of so many life transformations."
