We had the good fortune of connecting with Kenzie Mariano and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kenzie, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
I’ve always wanted to help people. Fitness was something that turned my life around, so I figured, why not use everything I’ve learned in the fitness industry to help others turn their lives around too.

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
I first decided I wanted to become a trainer after I graduated from The University of Alabama. Some said it was a dumb decision, to start my own business as a trainer instead of getting a secured job with my degree, but I knew I wanted to help people and to do it in an industry I was passionate about. So I took the leap and never looked back! It has definitely not been an easy journey, and still isn’t. I am currently in the process of totally rebranding, which is super exciting, but also a lot of work. This is just the beginning for my brand and I’m excited to take you all along the journey with me!
