Lindsay Gray, a piloxing instructor, throws jabs during a morning class Thursday at Premier Fitness in Tyler. Mrs. Gray has made health and fitness a priority after surviving a major car accident in 2009, which yielded severe brain and facial injuries.

Piloxing integrates the slow, graceful moves of Pilates with hard-hitting punches of boxing.

Lindsay Gray says she works twice as hard during her classes to motivate people. She’s seen here throwing a left hook.
