We had the good fortune of connecting with Martha Savloff and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Martha, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
Inspire Weight Loss was birthed out of my personal story. A story of being overweight, seeing my health deteriorate, feeling uncomfortable under my skin at the age of 40. I was at a crossroad and needed to make a change. I had enough with the feeling of heaviness and pain. So I entered my journey of weight loss and HEALTH GAIN. I lost the first 17 pounds and a whole lot of inches. I found myself feeling great and GRATEFUL. I was also at a crossroad in my professional career and having been in the administrative side of healthcare, I decided to go back to school, get my master certification of Health Coaching and PAY IT FORWARD. I opened Inspire Weight Loss. Being able to help and support men, women and adolescents to not only lose excess weight BUT GAIN HEALTH is the drive and passion that gets me up in the morning and not only me, but my team as well, We Inspire forward and continue to be very grateful each and every day,
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Definitely not easy, but when passion and gratefulness is the driver…..you can endure anything. I opened the doors of Inspire Weight Loss over 4 years ago. I started Inspire out of the trunk 0f my car doing house calls, tapping into my friends and family. Kept working, talking, posting on social media, celebrating my clients success and at one point I was so busy that I even ended up reserving the conference rooms at Dunkin Donuts….yep a weight loss business meeting clients at a Dunkin Donuts…..had to do what I had to do… grew from there and now have a center located in Davie, Florida, a beautiful team that holds the same heart towards our clients. The support we provide our clients mixed with the natural and well balanced programs and treatments that allow our clients to not only lose weight and develop healthier habits, but also keep it off long term with a sprinkle of amazing customer service and accessibility is what sets Inspire apart.
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?
Wow lots of options here in South Florida. I would start with breakfast at Fresh Fusion in Davie for the best avocado toast and acai bowl ever! Then a boat tour through the intercoastal making our way South. I would then tour them through the staples of Miami. Bal Harbour, South Beach, Star Island, Little Havana, Wynwood, Coral Gables and stop at Versailles for authentic Cuban Food and pastries. At this point we need to burn calories, so we will go to Hollywood Beach Boardwalk and walk until we get tired.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Shoutout to my husband, Father of my children, business advisor and the best thing that ever happened to me for always supporting me and guiding me every step of the way. Love you Gus.
