Today we’d like to introduce you to Renay Grant.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I’ve always been physically active participating in sports and a broad spectrum of activities from high school basketball, running, hiking, weight lifting, etc. I find human anatomy and physiology fascinating and the body’s ability to physically adapt and improve as a result of healthy eating and consistent exercise. I’m truly blessed to have an opportunity to share my passion and love for fitness with others.
My husband Charles and I began the Stayfit Wellness journey in 2015. We’ve received tremendous support and encouragement from friends and family along the way. I would be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge my best friend Gloria Williams, Kenny Loyd, Andrea Loyd, and Modu Seye; who not only believed in our vision but have supported us from day 1!
We’re committed to offering exciting, yet challenging programs to our clients designed to shift behaviors and improve their health and overall quality of life. As we journey through this amazing life, regardless of our current fitness status, I believe we can and should continue to learn and adopt healthy habits to Stayfit!
Has it been a smooth road? Some of the challenges I’ve experienced along the way include achieving work-life balance, overcoming the initial fear of starting, and the toughest by far has been learning how to operate a small business. Resilience is a great life quality to possess, even more so as an entrepreneur. There have been times that I considered walking away, but I have an amazingly talented, handsome, patient and supportive husband/business partner who gently reminds me to step back and reflect, re-evaluate, and enjoy the journey. I’m also blessed with a great network of family and friends who encourage me daily.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Stayfit Wellness story. Tell us more about the business. Our goal at Stayfit Wellness is to motivate, transform and improve the health and well-being of our clients. We strive to provide fun and lively Group Fitness classes infused with some of the latest exercise trends in the industry. We’re also proud to offer nationally certified Personal Training, Wellness Counseling and other services that result in a better quality of living.
Join us for 1-hour Group Training Monday – Wednesday at 6 pm and Saturday at 8 am at 40 Dodd Street SE #500, Marietta, GA 30060. All fitness levels are welcome.
How do you think the industry will change over the next decade? As the obesity epidemic trends upwards at record rates coupled with rising healthcare costs, I foresee the fitness industry becoming an even more integral part of our daily lives. According to Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the current life expectancy is 78.8 years.
The focus of Stayfit Wellness is to address obesity and other health-related diseases by offering engaging fitness and nutrition services throughout the year so our clients can Stayfit and active throughout life!
