About us

Woman Owned & Family Operated


Founded and built in 2014 by born and raised Austinite, Inez Escamilla, her mission was to create a safe, fun and welcoming environment to escape from the stress of everyday life.  She wanted to have a unique lighthearted space that empowered the community like the gym has always done for her.  

Inez and her husband, Nic Joslyn rebuilt Ignite in 2017 after being displaced from the original SoCo location.  Both Inez and Nic are welders so Ignite Fitnez has a level of craftsmanship and custom equipment that you won't find at any other gym.  

In November of 2019 Inez and Nic had a son, Jace.  Since Nic now runs their welding business, Loose Cannon Industries and Inez is enjoying being a first time mother, the management team is Maliek Derstine as the General Manager and Galina  Kuvshinov as the Assistant Manager.
