Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Ronail Shelton, Head Trainer of RS Fitness Personal Training, located in Los Angeles, CA, USA.

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

Personal training is ideal for those seeking high levels of personal attention and accountability. Uniquely varied workout routines are designed to accomplish your specific goals and give you the best results in the least amount of time possible.

Tell us about yourself

I help people get out of body pain by teaching good form and technique through corrective exercise training, and I also help with muscle toning and sports-specific training programs that help you define your fitness goals.

Based on your current fitness level, I will find your strengths and weaknesses & develop a program that meets your needs. Bi-weekly fitness assessments are provided, which closely measure and track your progress. I help clients improve their lives through fitness.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

The biggest accomplishment of being a business owner is the number of people I have been able to help over the past years.

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

One of the hardest things about being a business owner is being 100 percent at fault for things going wrong or not going as planned. Although situations are always bound to happen, I do not let them bother me as long as I can learn from them.

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

Three tips that I would give to someone who starts up their own business would be to think of ways you can service your customers that other businesses are not doing (stand out). Are you convenient? Lastly, make sure you have fun doing whatever it is you are doing. If you enjoy it, others will feel that enjoy and make their time with you more enjoyable.

Where can people find you and your business?
