Justin-Murphy

Best Personal Trainer
Justin Murphy

Justin Murphy grew up racing motocross, and being physically fit was an important component for success. So even when he gave up racing, he continued working out, going so far as to earn his degree in kinesiology from UNT. A personal trainer for the last five years (currently with Builtco), Murphy specializes in ”transformations:” Getting his clients to whatever their goals are in a realistic timeframe. But that doesn’t end at standing next to them at the gym, shouting encouragement — in fact, most of his work with clients includes preparing workout and diet regimens, detailed from day-to-day, and making sure they stick to it. “The people who stick to the program get the results!” he says, and nothing is more satisfying to him than helping someone stay fit and live longer. And apparently, Dallas Voice voters think the feeling is mutual.

Yoga

Best Yoga Studio
V12

In the nearly three years V12 Yoga has been around, it has grown a devoted following of regulars. And why not? With a wall of windows overlooking Downtown, anyone would enjoy doing their sun salutation in the warm comfort of this historic building on the edge of the Farmers Market. Owners Veronica and Ade Hazley create a peaceful and encouraging environment of instruction and practice seven days a week. And the studio is right over a bar, for those who like to follow “Namaste” with a brewsky. Hey, it’s all about your practice.
