My name is James Reid. I am a certified personal trainer and lifestyle & fitness coach. I am a spin instructor and creator of my own style of spin, Hip Hop/Soul Spin. I am a youth football coach and mentor as well.
I am currently running my training business out of a local YMCA and I rent their cycling studio out to conduct my spin classes, which I do 3 times per week, averaging 20 people per class at $10-$15 per person. I am looking to purchase my own bikes and weightlifting equipment so that I can move my business into a premise that I’d be sharing with my daughter who owns a clothing boutique and begin to maximize my earning potential.
There are many obese people in my community who need help getting in shape but can’t afford a gym membership and a trainer, so they don’t go. Me obtaining this loan would allow me to have my own personal training studio where they don’t have to pay a membership and would then make it affordable for them to get into the fitness lifestyle.
