Who are the McClintons?
Xavier Jarrell McClinton, The "X" in Body by X
Xavier, along with his wife Nadia, are the co-founders and partners of Body By X Skill Development and Training Center. He 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. Xavier is currently taking a medical leave of absence from the center. We look forward to having X back at the center to share his boundless enthusiasm and encouragement!

She 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—it’s good for women’s bone health, he said. I hired him as my personal trainer. And while I fell in love with him I also fell in love with weight lifting. It’s one of the most empowering things I have ever done—right up there with natural childbirth. It has given me so much internal strength and confidence. Enough confidence that this former gym phobic is now teaching indoor cycling and FlyGym classes!
My favorite aspect of owning a fitness center is being able to help people achieve their fitness 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 gym to say hello and learn more about our philosophy.
