SPECIAL ADVERTISING PROMOTION Justin Boots presents • Fo rgin g • Raising the Barre lthough she didn’t grow up in Fort Worth, Stephanie Perry got here as fast as she could. The San Diego native and owner of the Pilates/ Barre studio D Method moved to Cowtown to attend TCU and never looked back. “It’s impossible to feel like a stranger in Fort Worth,” she says. “This town is all about community and I love that.” She works hard to make D Method feel like a community, too. “Owning a small business in Fort Worth fulfills all of my dreams,” says Perry. “In house, we serve our clients by offering a friendly and luxurious facility where everybody knows your name. We plan countless out-of-studio events to really grow that connection with our clients. People can get a great workout at lots of places; what they can’t get is a place where they are treated like family.” She also is committed to partnering with local charities like the Samaritan House and Moncrief Cancer Institute for community outreach events. Although the studio opened three years ago, Perry is constantly adding new times and new classes to the schedule. In addition to Pilates, Barre and a rebounding class called Bounce, a new cardio dance class will launch this month. Perry is also looking to bring health and fitness workshops to the studio. “Ultimately, my goal is to serve the Fort Worth community,” she says. “I am so grateful to this town for allowing me to live out my dreams, and if I can help improve the lives of Fort Worth people, I know I will have succeeded.” making an impact A We salute the entrepreneurial citizens of the greater Tarrant County area.
