Henry “Hank” Richardson is the founder of D E F I N E: body & mind. Hank is a former All-American and National Team Member for the sport of Springboard and Platform Diving. After a successful career as a scholarship diver, Hank graduated from the University of Florida and moved to New York City where he joined the program Teach For America to teach 6th grade children in the South Bronx, NY. As a school teacher, Hank was surprised that his old injuries from diving were still causing him discomfort. By the end of his first year as a 6th grade teacher, his injury was severely affecting his ability to enjoy his work. With the encouragement of a friend, Hank found himself taking his first Pilates/Yoga/Ballet hybrid class, CoreFusion, at the spa exhale, in New York City. Sixty minutes and lots of shaking later, he found a method of exercise he knew would change his life. Six months later, he found himself teaching his very first Core Fusion class, and within one year, he was helping open and teach at locations all over the country. Hank has helped run studios in Boston, Bridgehampton, Chicago, Los Angeles, and San Francisco. In 2007 he moved back to Houston to begin his MBA at Rice University, and now that he has graduated, he is ready to bring this transforming exercise class to his hometown of Houston, TX. Hank is passionate about teaching and describes his style as supportive, challenging, and fun.
