Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Shaun Smith, CEO of In-Phase Training LLC., located in Dallas, TX, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

In-Phase Training is a fitness and sports program that seeks to enhance the skills of youth and high school football players in the Dallas-Forth Worth Area. We also provide personal training for adults seeking to lose weight, build strength, or rehab an injury. Regardless of your objective, our mission is to help "YOU" reach your goals.

Tell us about yourself

I started In-Phase training in the summer of 2021. Being a long-time educator and football coach, I wanted to share my knowledge and expertise with more people. Football has been part of my life for a very long time. I played in college, and my dad was a collegiate coach. I have been around the game my entire life. I know what it takes to play at the next level, and I know what it takes to become successful. I live for the success story. I live to help people improve their lives. I want to see my young athletes succeed on the field, and I want to see my adult clients reach their fitness goals. My motto is simple, "When my clients win, I win"!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

I remember there was a time when I had one client per week. Now my business is serving 40 plus clients per week. My company has been operating last than year and business is booming. Another great accomplishment was getting my website on the front of some google searches/pages.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Becoming an entrepreneur can be profitable, but it requires a lot of work. In order for my business to flourish, I have to give it the same care I would give a newborn.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

Starting a business is like climbing a mountain. The beginning is steep, but the longer you climb, the easier it gets. Once you are at the top of the bottom, it's all downhill from there. Making money will become easier and easier.

Where can people find you and your business?
