We had the good fortune of connecting with Lonnie Bush and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lonnie, why did you pursue a creative career?
I always knew I wanted to do something that would make a difference in the lives of others but it had to be something that I enjoyed also I am a fitness trainer and owner Lonnie Bush fitness I also have a non for profit celebration of life that assist men women and kids battling cancer I created it after my own battle with cancer I come up with the funds to assist the patients with everything that I wished someone would’ve assisted me with when I was battling
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?
I absolutely love what I do health and fitness is so needed in our community I love leading a high energy hype workout with people of all ages and fitness levels I love motivating them to strive for a healthier lifestyle I make it fun and welcoming for everyone despite how much they weigh I encourage them to use the 1hr class to sweat out anything they may be going through for 1hr it’s all a about them and when it’s over if they feel like laughing or crying or talking about anything I make myself available it’s tough at times to gain someone’s trust that’s been hurt so I make everyone comfortable no matter if I have a class of 5 or 50 I interact with them all and allow cancer patients and anyone that can’t afford to workout but desire to come for free because I’d rather encourage and motivate them than to collect the price of the class
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
Me and my friends like the same thing so of course we would go for a walk and do some physical activities go listen to some live music and do a little dancing find some good seafood or sushi to eat then mostly chill around a nice fire or water with drinks laughing and bonding
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
Wow I’ve been blessed with so much support from family friends and the community so it’s really tough to narrow down to just a individual but I’ve had a amazing group that God saw cut to bless me with they have loaded and unloaded weights and everything needed to teach my classes all over the city before I opened my own fitness center they are the first to arrive and the last to leave they do everything from promote what I do to even dressing up as elf’s and Santa’s helpers when I do my surprise Christmas giveaway to cancer patients it’s definitely no I in team!
