Today we’d like to introduce you to KaRon Lamar.
Hi KaRon, thanks for sharing your story with us. To start, maybe you can tell our readers some of your backstory.
I began my personal training journey six years ago. I was conducting personal training sessions with my music teacher in exchange for music lessons. Once the music lessons stopped, I began training my music teacher and her friends one day a week for the summer at Forest Park.
The following summer I decided to market myself and do more outdoor training sessions. My neighbors decided to help me by letting me train them. Eventually, more people became interested and my group training sessions increased. For three years, my boot camps were doing great. Then before the pandemic hit, my classes and clients had started to decline and by the time the shut happens, I had no clients, nowhere to train, and no prospects. So I decided to take a different career path. Then something amazing happens. Two inspirational people reached out to me for personal training. My confidence returned, and the love for training rekindle the flame for fitness. This time I wanted to start my own business and get a space to train in. With the support of my mom, family and friends. I decided to open my own training studio.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
It has been a long process but am becoming more patient. There are always struggles but it’s how you overcome those struggles that build character. I have a great support system.
We’ve been impressed with We Gym Fitness, but for folks who might not be as familiar, what can you share with them about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
We Gym Fitness is a training facility created to service people of all fitness levels. Since I am not a franchise, I have more creative freedom to think outside the box and provide a variety of classes to accommodate the needs for people who are just interested in general fitness as well as athletes. The GYM in the name stands for Get You Motivated. That’s all I want to do as a trainer. Motivate, inspire, empower and transform my clients so that they can feel amazing.
My plan in the next few years is to expand and open up a second location depending on the success of this location.
