ABOUT APRIL DELEON BOLIN
April Deleon Bolin fitness expert, nutritionist and entrepreneur, instills devotion into every aspect of her life.
As an Austinite she has grown-up seeing Austin become the “Fit City” that it now is. As a little girl she watched her father a former Marine teach young men about fitness and held weight training workouts in her own garage. This inspiration has given her the drive, desire and discipline to form the foundation of SHAPE UP FITNESS! By age 19 she was cleaning treadmills at a local gym as a second job learning the business. After finishing her degrees she went on to accomplish her passion and slowly began using her drive and diligence within the world of business. Don’t ever doubt April-when she puts her mind to something she believes in lets just say there’s no stopping her!
From college she went on to find her first job at Austin Heart Hospital and than to become a nutritionist for Austin Diagnostic Clinic. “I realized working for others was not for me. I felt I could do a better job and could help others MY way. I knew I had a much stronger purpose in life”. Wasting no time April then went on to teaching classes at a local apartment gym. She realized she had to do something that no one else had done. She continued to work for the hospital while growing her business into the corporate business world.
April’s next endeavor was Shape Up Fitness, a Corporate Wellness Company offering aerobic classes, nutrition, and personal training to property management companies and business locations in Austin which she founded in 2005. Now with over 40 locations, Shape Up Fitness has climbed the ladder to become what it is today. April is now providing classes in the Houston, Dallas, San Antonio, and newest expansion out of Texas. April DeLeon Bolin has raised the bar for wellness and continues to pioneer new concepts in fitness and nutrition.
