Higher Ground Fitness Services

Trainer Brian del Castillo believes in building from the foundation up, as balance and stability are a priority before advancing to more challenging agility and strength training. Brian integrates body weight exercises, core strength, weights, kettlebells, and yoga to assist his clients in accomplishing their goals.  Everyone is unique and the trainer will develop a plan that best suits the client.

Brian offers personal, partner, and group training sessions and packages.  Clients can also schedule a complimentary 30 minute meeting/fitness evaluation to see if the trainer and training plan are a good fit.  

Come meet Brian and see the clean, private gym where he trains his clients in a safe and controlled environment.

Yoga2gather Founder/Instructor 

Very excited to celebrate the first of many years of Yoga practice at Bellaire's Yoga2gather!  Lead by their amazing founder Rochelle Mannigel (Pictured in center) and an amazing group of instructors, practitioners, and supporters, Yoga2gather filled the yoga void in our area and quickly became a favorite for Trainer Brian and his wife.  They religiously attend the Friday evening class together before "date night" and get in to class during the week as often as possible.  Learn more about Y2G on our partner page, their website, and Mindbody!
