My name is Blaine Phariss, I am from Abilene, Texas. I am a senior at Hardin-Simmons University, and I am an Exercise Science Major hoping to continue my studies in chiropractic medicine. In my spare time, I like to play golf and workout. I currently help out at the Abilene Youth Sports Association with coaching and reffing boys and girls sports.
Meet The Staff
I am a graduate from Hardin-Simmons University where I obtained a bachelor's degree in Exercise Science. I have spent nearly two hundred hours working with physical and occupational therapists including patients ranging from children to late-stage adulthood. Other areas of experience include working with athletes at all levels including high school, collegiate and professional. In my spare time, I continue in adding countless hours of various martial arts training, I love outdoor activities, and I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I look forward to working with our StretchWORX clients as I enjoy helping people achieve wellness goals and an overall better quality of life.
I am certified in 25 different group fitness formats with Crunch Fitness where I currently teach. In May of 2019 I was given the "Award of Excellence" ranked # 3 in personal training sessions serviced with the Company of 19 locations. I love changing lives through fitness! When i am not teaching my " JUMPING JACK JOB" ( that's what my dad calls it) I am a busy mom of 4 beautiful kids & 2 fur babies. We love traveling in our Travel Trailer exploring fun new places!

I have always found myself involved in health and wellness. From being an athletic trainer in college, to a nationally qualified physique competitor and a personal trainer/group fitness instructor. I believe that my love for people and my desire to see them happy, healthy and prosperous will always keep me in this field, in some shape or form. I believe that our Emotional, Spiritual, and Physical health are key components that must be a priority in each of our lives. Here at StretchWORX, I get to help and partner alongside you, to do that exact thing. Let's renew and restore your body. Let's restore that range of motion, let's relieve those aches and pains caused by those tight muscles. It starts from the inside out... So come on in!!

Hi my name is Tiffanie, and I am from Amarillo, TX. I have a Bachelor's in Health Sciences, and I'm in Abilene at ACU working on my Master's Degree in Occupational Therapy. I was a therapy tech for 3 and a half years helping both physical and occupational therapists, so I'm very interested in neuroscience, rehabilitation, aging well, mental health, and various disorders. I have a passion for helping people and seeing them accomplish what goals they have set for themselves. It makes me ecstatic seeing people accomplish things they didn't think possible. I'm a fan of music and most genres, I like documentaries, and spending time with my family. I hope we can see you soon for a stretch!
I grew up in east Texas near Beaumont, but have spent the last 6 years in the Austin area laying the groundwork for my career. I received a bachelor's degree in Exercise and Sports Science with a concentration in rehabilitation sciences. I worked for two years at an orthopedic clinic alongside physical and occupational therapists to help patients of all ages recover from injuries with the use of exercise. I am currently a student at ACU in the Occupational Therapy program pursuing a master's degree and I have a huge passion for helping people return to the things they love after a life-changing event. I love hiking, skiing, watching way too much TV, and cuddling with my two calico kitties. I look forward to working with clients at StretchWORX and seeing all the positive outcomes that assisted stretching can offer!
