Universal Fitness & Health was founded in 2002 by owner David Jenkins. After working as a personal trainer at large gyms such as Bally's Fitness and Q Sports Club, David wanted to get away from the membership driven "warehouse style" exercise facilities. His mission was to develop a facility where the health and fitness of each client was the main focus.
David grew up in Spring and excelled as an athlete from little league through his senior year of high school. He graduated with all-district honors in basketball and was nominated as a McDonald's All American. David decided to forgo his athletic career and attend college at Sam Houston State University where he earned a degree in Kinesiology with a minor in Business Administration.
For over 35 years David has followed his love and passion of helping others achieve health and fitness through proper diet and exercise. David lives with the chronic lung disorder sarcoidosis, and he lost his father to a heart attack at an early age. From these personal experiences, David knows that there is nothing more important than your health.
If you are serious about your overall well-being and fitness, David is here to help. If you have the desire, but need the extra motivation to get started, or you need the support to continue what you’ve started, David will guide you every step of the way.
