Peak Performance Fitness

How long have you been in business?
17 years

What are the three most important lessons you have learned building your business?
Trust your instincts; only pursue what you are passionate about; surround yourself with great people—family, coworkers, clients and friends.

What is a day like in your heels?
Definitely not heels, always running shoes! Up by 5 a.m. for a workout; take boys to school, 8 a.m.; start with clients straight through until evening; possibly teach a class or two; homework and bedtime with the boys at night.

What have been some make-or-break moments in your career—important client meetings, presentations, procurement, pitches etc.?
Finishing by bachelor of science from Furman University in exercise science and receiving my certification from Titleist Performance Institute.

When you first started, what was the biggest challenge when it came to cultivating clients/customers?
Building a good reputation within the community and slowly building clients through referrals.

On those impossible days, what motivates you to keep going?
I am motivated by wanting to be strong and upbeat for my clients; positive energy is crucial in the fitness business. Most of all, being a good role model for my sons.

What is your balancing secret in managing a business and family?
Time management and lots of energy and focus.

What inspired you to start your business?
I have always dreamed of owning my own fitness studio, which came from being around and involved in my family businesses over the years.
