At its core, Body By X is in business to help people reach and maintain their fitness goals. We think everyone and every BODY is unique and therefore everyone’s fitness program should be unique to them and their goals. All of these great offerings come at a terrific price! We believe everyone should have access to affordable exercise. We created Body By X to meet the needs of those in our community who want a smaller, more personal space to work out. We’re like no other fitness center, and we believe, as all of our members do, that we’re the best in Marin.
WHO ARE THE MCCLINTONS?
XAVIER JARRELL MCCLINTON,
THE "X" IN BODY BY X
Xavier, and his wife Nadia, are the co-founders and partners of Body By X Skill Development & Training Center. Xavier has been a personal trainer, an architect of mind, body and soul for more than twenty years. His vision for Body By X was to create a space where kids and adults could overcome their physical and emotional fears and improve their self-esteem.
Having been in the fitness field for almost 30 years, I’ve seen a lot of people come and go. I began my career on the sales side and quickly realized that just selling people memberships was not the way to help them achieve long term success. I realized that people needed help beyond just signing a contract. It was at that point that I decided to become a personal trainer. Since then I have helped hundreds of people reach their goals and sustain a healthy lifestyle. Growing up with the lack of a good role model inspired me to become a good role model myself. This is why I gain such satisfaction coaching, training and mentoring kids. We’ve included 2 pieces of equipment at the Center, a leg press and an assisted pull-up sized for kids as young as 6 or 7 years-old.
Over the years, I have learned not just to listen but to really hear the needs of people of all ages. It’s this ability that helps me to encourage people to move beyond their perceived limitations. For example, I help women gain the strength to do exercises using their own body weight, including push-ups and pull-ups. It gives me great satisfaction to see the confidence this instills in them.
I opened Body By X with my wife, Nadia, to build a community of like minded people doing like minded things. I feel that this kind of environment breeds success. This is an aspect of Body By X that I believe our members truly treasure.
THE“BODY” IN BODY BY X
Nadia is a personal trainer and teaches an endurance indoor cycling class and Aerial Fitness! She also manages the business side of Body By X including marketing and community outreach. Nadia has worked in advertising, retail management and as a project manager for a software company. She has a master’s degree in psychology and all of these experiences have prepared her well for gym ownership!
Who am I? Who I am today is a very different person than I was 10 or even 5 years ago. I had never been to a gym before I met my husband and business partner, Xavier Jarrell, in 2006. In fact, I guess you could say I was gym phobic! I fancied myself as an outside exercise person, but my kids will tell you I was never really into exercise before X. He inspired me to lift weights. I hired him as my personal trainer. And while I fell in love with him I also fell in love with weight training. It’s one of the most empowering things I have ever done! It has given me so much internal strength and confidence. Enough confidence that this former gym phobic is now training others to help them reach their goals!
It’s the most rewarding work I have ever done and I am proud to have a business that inspires kids and adults to build strength physically and emotionally.
First and foremost, we are Mom and Dad, sharing sports and fitness with our children is one of our favorite things! Please stop by our fitness center to say hello and learn more about our philosophy.
