After a successful career as a Texas State Champion, a USA National champion, and a 10 time All-American springboard and platform diver, Henry moved to New York City where he joined Teach For America educating 6th grade children in the South Bronx. As a teacher, Henry was surprised that his old injuries from diving were still causing discomfort and by the end of his first year teaching, this was severely affecting his ability to enjoy his work. Henry began taking Pilates/Yoga/hybrid classes, and within six months, he taught his very first class, and within one year, was helping open studios across the country.
In 2007, he moved back to Houston to earn his MBA at Rice University. Combining his business learnings and his desire to help people transform their body & mind, Henry opened DEFINE body & mind in 2009. DEFINE body & mind’s mission is to educate people on how to become their absolute best, and believe that physical strength, length and balance impact both states of mind and being.
In the past seven years, DEFINE has grown to include four core Houston locations and twelve franchises all over the country. DEFINE will be opening in Dubai, May 2016, along with many more studios opening soon.
In 2015, Henry added his newest program DEFINE life. With a motto of Health. Passion. Purpose., the DEFINE life program encompasses all elements of the DEFINE brand to help clients become their absolute personal best. The goal in this program is to give students an opportunity to physically, mentally and spiritually discover their optimal self.
Henry has an undergraduate degree in Business and Education from the University of Florida. A Masters in Business Administration from Rice University. He is a certified Integrative Health Coach from the Institute of Integrative Health. He is a LEED AP, a certified Yoga Instructor, as well as a certified MBTI specialist.In 2013, Henry was the recipient of The Momentum Award benefiting his philanthropic work with Habitat for Humanity. In August of 2016, Henry is leading a group of DEFINE life students for a Habitat for Humanity project in Argentina.Schedule:
