Two years ago, when we sat down with personal trainer and fitness expert Terry Williams just before his Houston-based training facility “The League” was about to open, we had no idea that the Houston native and University of Texas alum would take his vision so far.

A little ambition apparently goes a long way.

Williams’ “STAC(K) Training” process, his idea to put a gym in Houston’s off-downtown area within a short driving distance of Toyota Center and Minute Maid Park, and his commitment to make Houston a healthier place, blew up almost instantaneously. “The League” went from being a renovated warehouse-turned-gym into a place where a community gathered under the simple reminder to “keep moving” no matter what. In the time since, Williams has worked with the Texas Rangers and made appearances on Debra Duncan’s “Great Day Houston” TV show and partnered with KHOU Channel 11 for a mini-fitness challenge. He’s even launched an end-of-the-month “run club” for those whose busy lives don’t allow much time for working out during the day, to at least get in a few laps with others at night once a month.

His training procedure now revamped and rebranded as “PAC(K)” and with The League’s following stronger than ever, Williams and his wife Ashley will start a new chapter for The League as a brand when The League opens a second facility, The League Heights, next week.

The League Heights will kick off a “Grand Opening Launch Party” this Sunday to mark the occasion. From 2-5 PM, attendees will be treated to a photo booth, food trucks, a live DJ on hand with good tunes, and tours of the new space and facilities.

The festivities for The League Heights Launch Party begin at 2 PM on Sunday, October 18, at 2219 W. 34th Street.
