Meet the Owners – James & Keri!


Life is entirely unpredictable and full of opportunities. You never know, at any given moment, what will be thrown your way. So, never be afraid to take a chance! We are so happy that we did. Our dream of being a part of something as fulfilling as Alignment 8 has been realized. Never give up!!

Keri and James

We have been so fortunate to be given this opportunity. It’s true what they say. When a door closes, a window really does open! Going forward as the new owners of Alignment 8 has been one of the best decisions of our life. Nothing compares to seeing happy clients growing stronger and more confident. We are creating an environment filled with positive reinforcement: building one another up and encouraging each individual to shine bright.

We have found a home in Midland because of the great people who have welcomed us. We love it so much, that along with our adorable fur babies (Lola and Carlos), we are purchasing our first home in September of 2015! Midland is a wonderful place in which to enjoy the things we love doing together such as being outside, going for walks, disc golfing and just being with our loved ones. It has become so easy to think of Midland as our home.

We have both worked in the service industry and completely understand the importance of customer service. With this in mind, we created a mission for Alignment 8. It is our goal to create a community that encourages self-growth, enriches your life and is a welcoming place for everyone of any fitness level. We want Alignment 8 to be a safe place where you can focus on YOU. No hype. No competition. Just you and your personal growth.

After the loss of my parents in 2013, life truly changed for us. It has been an uphill battle, but we have continued to move forward every day with a grateful heart. Our optimism and empathy in addition to life’s beautiful synchronicities brought us to where we are today. Through loss we have learned how to be strong, kind, and resilient. And we want to share that energy and outlook with our clients! Every day we interact with people who have their own stories of pain, struggle, and heart break. Alignment8 is a safe place. It’s a place where you can set that baggage aside and focus on you and your strengths. We get a new chance every day to become better and to get it right. Alignment 8 has helped me come back to life. Our clients and staff have filled my heart and spirit with so much joy, happiness, and pride. We can never say thank you enough! Taking over as owners in March of 2015, has been the best risk we could have ever taken and we cannot thank our staff, clients, friends, and families enough for their support, patience, and believing in the beauty and power that is A8. Never let your past define you. Just keep striving for the brightest and most beautiful future because you can (and will!) get there!
