Hello! I am Randall Lavender —the Owner of THRC. I started my health and fitness background as a PRT Coordinator for the U.S. Navy. During my eight years in the navy, I developed a weight loss and exercise program that ensured the men and women excelled in their daily fitness levels. I then moved up to an air traffic controller for the U.S. Navy making sure all planned arrivals and departures ran as efficient and safe as possible.
Born with entrepreneurship in my veins, at the age of 10, I would plant and grow vegetables in my parent’s back yard then sell them at local farmers markets in the Dallas-Fort Worth MetroPlex. At the age of 15 I had my first employed job as a bicycle technician.
I attended Southwest Texas State University where I received a Bachelors in Communications. Since then I’ve started and developed many successful businesses in the San Marcos area. In 2002 I took over ownership of Texas Health & Racquet Club, previously known as Jim’s Gym for over 20 years. I made the purchase because I wanted to bring San Marcos a ‘true state of the art fitness center.’
When asked “Where will THRC be in 5 years?” I’ll answer: “Still being Hays County’s #1 Health Club!”
