We had the good fortune of connecting with Jonathan B. Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jonathan B., what is the most important factor behind your success?
Coming into the fitness environment and profession I noticed a lot of people following cookie cutter weight loss and performance advice that kept many short of their results.

My experience as an athlete groomed me to understand different conditions, techniques and philosophies around execution, but most importantly that all success isn’t “one size fits all”.

This empowered me to heavily research and provide information/education on body types.

My fitness platform has helped and encouraged my followers to love who they are, view and empower themselves correctly via proper training and dietary advice.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
Being a former collegiate athlete, I didn’t have a solid graduation plan or thoughts outside of pursuing my athletics professionally. I asserted myself in the commercial fitness space and immediately ran into road blocks because the overall mission was sales and not helping the customer.

I overcame my despair and found new opportunity in corporate wellness as an entry level trainer. I fell in love with being able to genuinely help people without the pressure of commission-based pay.. 2 years later, I landed a management position and was honored to lead a team of aspiring trainers and instructors to record setting participation numbers.

After 7 years of hard-work and leadership in corporate wellness, I knew it was time to branch out off and accomplish new goals.

Through my experience, I grew to know that most people are simply uninformed about their body type and what works specifically for their DNA. I’m proud to continue to impression of my brand via YouTube and Instagram to help others overcome issues around fitness, nutrition and overall performance.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I really love City Centre – Memorial and the available attractions. We’d do some shopping at H&M and Urban Outfitters before grabbing a bite to eat at Bellagreen.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would love to shoutout my family and grandparents for showing me the value in the appreciating others for exactly who they are. This empowered my values and allowed me to maintain peace and progression in my life.
