After suffering an injury in Army Ranger School, Corey McHugh had to undergo physical rehabilitation. It was during this time that he realized he wanted to help people get in shape and be healthy.

"I fell in love with healing people with exercise," said McHugh, manager and co-owner of BodyTrac.

With degrees in exercise science and biology, and a background in strength and conditioning, McHugh is pursuing a doctorate in physical therapy. He has been with BodyTrac since 2012, and recently opened the BodyTrac location in Westchase.

BodyTrac Health & Fitness offers personal training for groups up to four people. Sessions are one hour long, and are broken down into 30 minutes of cardio work, and then 30 minutes of group-based training.

McHugh said that BodyTrac is different than other larger workout facilities because trainers work closely with clients and care about their success. BodyTrac offers different monthly membership options. To celebrate the opening, anyone can workout for free during December.

BodyTrac is at 11667 Countryway Blvd. and is open from 5 a.m. to 10 a.m. and 3 to 8 p.m. on weekdays and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. For more information, call (813) 501-6070, or visit
