Fitness guru builds life, business in Summerlin

As someone who makes her living helping others to look and feel better, fitness guru Sitara Garma has a special appreciation for the beauty of Summerlin, the master-planned community where she owns and operates a fitness business and lives with her husband, Genesis.

Garma, a four-year-resident of the village of Summerlin Centre, opened Core Fit last year in The Hills Business Park. In less than one year, her high-end pilates studio has grown to nearly 10 employees.

“Summerlin is the ideal place for a fitness studio like Core Fit,” said Garma, who credits the community’s healthy, active lifestyle and fitness-oriented residents for the success of her business. “The community tends to attract those who are committed to healthy living so it’s been a great place to operate a pilates studio.”

Garma, who received her doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Southern California, the nation’s top physical therapy program, also received a degree in kinesiology from UNLV. She previously lived and worked in Los Angeles and said she now enjoys a brief seven-minute commute to work.

“I love living and working in the same community,” Garma said.

Developed by The Howard Hughes Corp., an affiliate of General Growth Properties Inc., Summerlin began to take shape in 1990.

Single-family homes, townhomes, condominiums and lofts are available. Prices range from the low $200,000s to more than $1 million.
