Building a Stronger Community

By Kelsey Grudle

The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch welcome new Fitness and Wellness Director Tamra Christiansen.

Born in Midland, Texas, Tamra was raised in nearby Bulverde, and her love for the Texas Hill Country grew strong. She continued to build her life here as she graduated from the University of Texas at San Antonio with a Bachelor of Science in Health and an Internship in Pediatric Obesity. Tamra’s passion for fitness started early as a competitive dancer and cheerleader but truly began with her love of running and strength training. 

Tamra has been a fitness and wellness professional for over 20 years and her detailed and personalized approach has helped her maintain a strong career in this industry. Along with her Personal Training Certifications, Tamra teaches a variety of Group Exercise formats including core classes, group cycle, HIIT training, kickboxing, stretch classes, water aerobics, water boot camp and more. She is also available for private and semi-private personal training in 30-minute to one-hour increments to help members focus on specific areas of strengthening. “My approach to personal training and fitness is to address every member’s needs individually to get them to their goals. I have worked with all age ranges and many unique situations. Specific training can help individuals improve their golf, tennis or running game, and I specialize in flexibility and yoga, and that is good for everyone! I have also worked to “pre-hab” prior to surgeries and continue and complement rehab after surgeries,” says Tamra, adding, “I look forward to meeting everyone and I welcome all ideas and suggestions!”

In Tamra’s spare time, she lives a vibrant life running trails with her puppy, Ross, and spending quality time with her husband, Corey, and her two boys, Collin and Caleb. Tamra loves lifting weights, competing in races or triathlons and learning new ways to bring wellness and health into others’ lives. She has a true passion and love for helping people reach their unique fitness goals. Tamra’s motto and continued motivation is, “If you care for your health and wellness first, you are better equipped to care for others.”

Tamra Christiansen is the Fitness & Wellness Director at The Clubs of Cordillera Ranch. She can be reached at or 210.878.5367.

Fish Stocking in Swede Creek Lake

Swede Creek Lake is an outstanding resource and amenity at Cordillera Ranch, and during my 16 years on the Ranch, we have watched the fish populations remain fairly healthy. In 2015, we did a fish survey in Swede Creek Lake to get an estimate of the health and numbers of fish and that report found a very healthy population of bass and several species of sunfish. Over the years, we have caught the following species out of Swede Creek Lake: largemouth or black bass, Guadalupe or spotted bass, rock bass, red breast sun fish, long ear sunfish, green sunfish, bluegill, channel catfish, striped bass and a few turtle species that include the red-ear slider, Texas river cooter and softshell turtle. We have also seen nutra rat and beaver using the lake as home.
