We had the good fortune of connecting with Lorence Ricks and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Lorence, we’d love to hear more about your end-goal, professionally.
The end goal is to have a few training locations opened in the country (3 minimal). By the end of my career I want to be traveling back and forth between those locations (only to make sure business is running as needed) and spend as much time with my family as I possibly can!
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My career is a rollercoaster that’s not for the weak! I thought things were much more easier until I started working for myself! Training and servicing the clients is only a small and easy portion of owning your own fitness business. The backend work is where you can EASILY get discouraged! The service calls, the scheduling etc. My lesson that I learned was to stop trying to run a business just off mental notes!! You can have the best memory in the world but once business begin to pick up, you quickly forget about something that was to be done! Log everything!! Our brand Un1Fit Personal Training & Athletic Performance will be recognized in South Florida by the end of 2021!!
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Beach. It’s South Florida, you’ll find everything near the beaches.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I’m shouting out my Savior! With as much adversity I’ve encountered (both personal and work life) He always tend to put me back on the track that I belong. So I give all my thanks to Him!
