The Blueprint Experience

Fitness that moves you!

Over the past 15 years, Casey Venters has gained a reputation as a respected authority in the fitness industry. Casey has an impressive fitness resume, which showcases his expertise. He earned a Master's degree in Exercise Science, has numerous certifications, was an adjunct professor, a former gym owner, a performance coach, a personal trainer as well as a public speaker for companies such as Marriot and Under Armour.

But none of that mattered as much as Casey's deeply held belief that the fitness industry as a whole had failed its members.

Each day numerous people suffer from soft-tissue injuries that are not the result of an accident or other assignable cause. These injuries begin as a little irritating pain and get progressively worse. Over time this pain results in an injury. Ninety-nine percent of these injuries are entirely preventable, and Casey was passionate to show people how to live pain and injury-free.

Casey saw a significant gap between clinical treatment for pain or surgical recovery and current gym offerings. As an answer to the problem, he seized the opportunity to create a fitness facility that bridged that gap. "I started the Blueprint Experience because I wanted to implement my proven system for helping people get out of pain and for pain and injury prevention. Even if you don’t currently have pain, if you continue to exercise and workout incorrectly, you are going to get hurt. We prevent that here,” says Managing Partner Casey Venters. Thus was born The Blueprint Experience, Fitness that Moves You.

What makes The Blueprint Experience unique is how a fitness plan is crafted for each person individually tailored to their needs and goals the way a blueprint is crafted for building a house. The member's journey begins with a movement screening and 3D-body scan conducted by a Fit Architect professional using state of the art technology. During this screening process, data is collected including, mobility, stability, weight, and postural measurements to lay the foundation on which a unique fitness blueprint plan is developed. Members then begin a progressive training program that addresses all of their fitness goals according to their blueprint. Members have three options to meet their needs: 1) work directly with a Fit Architect, 2) attend small classes with individualized coaching led by a Fit Architect, 3) take their blueprint, and do it on their own.

The Blueprint Experience employs a relationship-based model that fosters a community feel. Members are known and greeted by name each time they enter the gym. Friendly fun competitions encourage members to attend the gym regularly and give 110% every time they're there. State of the art equipment and technology is used to enhance the member's experience and accelerate their results.

Located inside the beautiful European-style Adriatica Village in McKinney, The Blueprint Experience has lots of windows that allow in the natural light with views of the chapel and outside walking path. So even when you're inside, you still feel like you're almost outside.

But that's not all. The current facility is only the first phase. A phase two facility is coming soon, which will include a swimming pool, and on-site clinicians offering physical therapy and chiropractic services. Phase two will be the complete realization of Casey's vision to bridge the gap with on-site clinical professionals for members whose needs transcend the current gym.

The Blueprint Experience isn't just about fitness though; they also love giving back to the community. Blueprint is a charity partner with The Warrior's Keep, whose sole mission is to raise money to treat PTSD veterans with outdoor therapy. Blueprint also sponsors several local schools teacher appreciation weeks and are a Gold-level sponsor for the upcoming Christmas in Adriatica Event. They were also a sponsor of the McKinney May Smiles Charity event.

Right now, The Blueprint Experience is offering a free 10-Day Experience for people to give it a try. This experience will allow you to try everything the gym has to offer from the strategy session, to one free training session with a Fit Architect to participating in all the group classes. This one experience you will not want to miss!

Casey currently resides in McKinney with his wife and two sons. When he's not helping other people achieve their fitness goals pain-free, you can find Casey coaching his son’s baseball team, fishing down at the local park or chasing his three year old daughter around. Casey is also active in the local chapter of Indian Guides in the Tatanka Nation – “whose goal is to build and strengthen the loving bonds between fathers and their sons and daughters (K to 4th grade) by providing structured, fun activities for them to enjoy together during the school year.”
