Meet Your MODs- Edgar Leon

Good things come in threes—that’s why we have three world-class MODs at Champions Club!


Over the last couple of weeks, we have introduced you to the friendly and hard-working MODs that help make Champions Club Southlake’s premier recreation destination. Each MOD brings their unique personality to the team, and this week’s MOD is no different!


If you like to work out in the evening hours after work, then you’ve seen Edgar Leon making the rounds of Champions Club. This week we are speaking to the night owl that runs Champions Club in the evenings while you run on the treadmills.


Tell us a little bit about yourself.

My name is Edgar Leon, and I am a Guest Services Coordinator at Champions Club. I have lived in DFW for the last 20 years, and I love every part of it! 


What are your hobbies and what do you like to do in your free time? 

My hobbies include checking out different restaurants, traveling, and exploring the outdoors with my family. For entertainment, I enjoy watching the Dallas Cowboys and Dallas Mavericks play. 


What is your favorite thing to do at Champions Club? 

I love seeing the many faces that make up the Southlake community come through the door every day! 


What do you like most about being a MOD? 

What I love most about being a MOD is connecting with staff from the different departments that enable the facility to run the way it should! 


What would you say to someone considering a Champions Club membership?

If you are looking for a place to not only help with your health and fitness goals but also allow your family to enjoy our activities and programs, I would absolutely consider joining Champions Club!


Change up your routine this week and schedule an evening workout! Stop by the front desk to give Edgar a high-five!


We hope you have enjoyed getting to know your MODs over the last three weeks. We like to think of every Champions Club member as part of our family, and we are happy to tell you a little bit more about our family. 

Mental Health Awareness Month: Exercise for Mental Health

May is Mental Health Awareness Month, and this week’s tip is to exercise!

It’s no secret that exercising is great when you want to improve your physical health. However, it is also an extraordinary habit to build to maintain your mental health as well. Apart from all the physical benefits of a regular exercise routine, working out is advantageous for your mental well-being.

Completing a new or challenging workout can feel like a huge accomplishment. However, even mild exercise can have terrific results on your mental health. For example, a regular exercise routine can help fight anxiety, depression, and stress! Working out builds endorphins, promotes neural growth, and serves as a distraction from the day-to-day grind. Physical activity can reduce anxiety by relieving tension and stress and giving your mind something to focus on. But that’s not all. Exercising leads to sharper memory, higher self-esteem, improved energy, and better sleep—all crucial components of mental health.

If you’re ready to invest in your well-being, then look no further than Champions Club! Our world-class staff is here to support you in every aspect of your wellness journey. Ease into fitness with one of our group fitness classes or small group training. If you’re more into individual workouts, check out our private exercise studios, cardio equipment, free weights, and weight machines! No matter where you are in your fitness journey, our staff is here to answer your questions and point you in the right direction.

Not a part of our Champions Club family yet? Join today and take advantage of our complimentary fitness assessments! The assessment includes a body composition test, a flexibly and aerobic capacity assessment, as well as a Blood Pressure reading. What better way to gain peace of mind about your overall wellness than to be armed with knowledge?

Exercising is a vital step in maintaining your mental and physical health, no matter how you like to get active. Make a vow to incorporate exercise into your routine this month and beyond!
