Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in health and fitness but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Tyler Starke, Founder of Starke Industries, located in Palatine, IL, USA.

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

Starke Industries is a Human Performance Testing and Training Facility. We primarily cater to Athletes and High Performing individuals.

Tell us about yourself

The Personal Training Industry has become saturated with cookie-cutter programs and embarrassing with half-naked "influencers." Following the example from the CHEK Institute and DBC Fitness, I wanted to provide a professional service that is supported by evidence-based science.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

LLC Started in October 2020, hoping to have the facility open within the next couple of weeks.

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

Still very early in the development to consider any true obstacles. Right now, I'm running into speed bumps in acquiring permits from the village.

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

Find a purpose, get organized, and go after it.

Where can people find you and your business?
