Goal Fitness is very personal to me.
I wear athletic apparel every day and I wanted quality products that still allowed me to express my sense of style! Therefore, I turned my lifestyle into a brand. This brand is something I am very passionate about because motivating and helping people reach their goals is what I do, I put a lot of time and effort into expanding my brand daily. I have faced many ups and downs but I still push forward in many ways whether it’s collaborating with local businesses, helping aspiring models build their portfolio, giving business advice to a colleague or just walking around my community handing out business cards. There are a lot of people who told me that none of this would be possible, for various reasons. I want to show everyone that when there is a will, there is a way. I am a senior at an HBCU (North Carolina Central University) and I work as a group fitness instructor on campus. I also work part-time to fully fund my inventory out of pocket!
What is your favorite product and why?
I love the I am strong set! I love the color, flexibility & and the quick-dry properties!
Where do you see your Empire or yourself as an entrepreneur in the next 5 years?
In the next 5 years, my website will have many different activewear options for men & women. In addition I will have two physical store locations, one in LA and the other in Miami. I will be based out of LA but I plan on selling my products on many different online platforms and in boutiques. I also plan on making my business international by networking abroad. I will be setting up a collaboration with 2 Top modeling agencies of my choice to ensure my fitness and catalog models have opportunities to take their modeling career further than goal fitness. I will also be creating many different programs to help people in different ways! Goal Fitness is my first of many businesses to come! Stay Tuned!
What is the legacy that you wish to leave behind with your business?
I want my business to encourage more black people to take fitness/health seriously. In addition, I also want to encourage more black people to launch a business so we can have more representation! The legacy is "Never give up", "reach your goals".
Interesting facts or info you’d like your audience or future customers to know about you?
Goal Fitness Activewear Launched Oct 1, 2019! We were the first recipients of the Empire Awards given by The Black Market Company. We also landed our first partnership with D&D towards the end of the month. Our inventory and team have been expanding very quickly. My goal is to help people reach their goals while I reach mine on this new journey. The best advice I can offer to any new business owner is to be a self-advocate and use the resources around you! Push forward through obstacles the "no's", not everyone will support you but you will find people who will say yes and support you on your journey!
