We had the good fortune of connecting with Kevin “KEVO” Williams and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kevin “KEVO”, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Fitness has always been a part of my life. I grew up playing sports, but as I got into my adult years my health and fitness took a detour due to everyday life and responsibilities. Mentally and physically I was at my worst. I didn’t feel confident or motivated. I knew I needed to make a change and that was to get back in the gym and change my diet and daily habits. I knew I was at my best when I was physically fit and active. The more consistent I became, the more my life changed for the better. I saw my body changing, but I also saw every other aspect of my life start to evolve as well. As time went on, people started asking me questions about my fitness journey and for tips/suggestions. I knew this would be a great opportunity for me to help people not only physically, but mentally and spiritually as well. I would be able to give them the motivation to take their health seriously by changing their daily regimen and pushing them to their full potential in life. To see someone make a change in their life for the better encourages me to want to reach more lives.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Fit4All Fitness provides specialized personal training for clients in any situation. Whether you’re old or young, want to lose weight, build muscle, or just get in shape for everyday life, we can get it done. Our ability to create unique, effective fitness programs for our clients and their goals sets us apart from others. There is no task too hard for us at Fit4All Fitness. I challenge all of my clients mentally and physically to overcome their fears of becoming the best version of themselves. I’m proud that my business is where it is today because not long ago it was just a thought in my mind. I wanted to create a program for individuals who really have the desire to achieve their fitness goals while still being affordable. Through prayer and obedience, I was able to make it come to fruition. I ran into many challenges along the way, but I was determined and focused on not letting anything discourage me from getting started. I’ve learned that anything is possible if you truly want it to happen. With God on my side, anything I put my mind to I can accomplish. I’ve also learned that whatever is not benefiting my life and business is a distraction. I want the world to know that no matter where you come from or what people say, everyone is capable of being a leader and making a difference. It’s up to you to figure out where you’re going to lead them to and what impact you’re going to have on their lives.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
I was born and raised in Houston. I love my city! There’s no other place like it. The culture, the style, the people, the food…the whole vibe is different. There are tons of good, black owned eateries that I love like Five Central, The Greasy Spoon, Hookah Blame U, The Breakfast Klub, etc. The list goes on. I love shopping at The Galleria and visiting local spots in that area like one of the gyms I train out of – vFit Gym off of Richmond Ave. The Houston Zoo and museums are also great places to check out. You can also go for a walk or exercise at Buffalo Bayou Park, one of my favorite parks in the city.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
First and foremost, my life and success wouldn’t be possible without my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. He gives me the strength to overcome all obstacles that stand in the way of my goals. Secondly, my Grandmother because if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be here. She raised me from the time I was 9 months old. She always provided for me, even though we never had much. Somehow, she made a way. My life’s goal is to make her proud and I know she would be very proud to see everything I’ve overcome to get where I am now. Although I still have a long way to go, my vow is to never let her down.
