Jan 2023 Member Spotlight: John Yantis,  Founder of Yantis Company and Aggie Legend!

We salute John Yantis in our Member Spotlight this Month!  John has been a faithful member of the Inside Outside Family since 2005.  A 1953 Graduate of Texas A&M, he has been honored with the Distinguished Alumnus Award, the highest honor bestowed on a former student of Texas A&M and awarded since 1962 to only 268 of Texas A&M's nearly 500,000 students.  John was the founder of the family owned Yantis Company in 1965 which has grown to be one of the 10 largest General Contractors in San Antonio.

Dec 2021 Member Spotlight: John McMurray,  Investment Advisor Russell Investments

We salute John McMurray in our Member Spotlight this Month!  John has been a member of the Inside Outside Family since August.  He has had a long career in Investment and Banking, currently for Russell Investments, and recently moved to San Antonio from Seattle where he participated in SuperSlow Strength Training at the SuperSlow Zone in Seattle.  He found us via our DXA scanning service and was thrilled to find a facility which promoted this method of Strength Training.  He has always been interested in health and for many years followed the conventional advice about diet and exercise.  Unfortunately, these strategies (healthy whole grains and aerobic activity) didn't keep him from getting fat as he entered middle age.  11 years ago influenced by Art De Vany and Dr. Doug McGuff's book, "Body by Science", he radically changed his thinking about diet and exercise and within a few months was  back to his college weight. His long time primary care physician in Seattle, Ted Naiman (P:E Diet), was also a strong influence in his transformation.  John grew up in Texas and has degrees from UTSA, MIT and Trinity University where he met his wife of 40 years.   We enjoy having John as a valued member of the Inside Outside Family.
