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

Hi Tierre, can you share the most important lesson you’ve learned over the course of your career?
Never be afraid to step out of faith. Faith in God which will give you faith in yourself.

What should our readers know about your business?
With so many people in the strength and conditioning business setting yourself apart is imperative. I do it by paying attention to every detail of my clients, no matter how small. Because if you miss a small detail, it could make a huge difference in the client’s performance.

I got to where I am business-wise today by a lot of prayer and betting on myself. It wasn’t easy, especially when I started as a one man band. My biggest challenges were dealing with competition, especially once social media became a heavy marketing tool. The competition would either pay for followers, or post fancy videos which attract clients with a lot of smoke and mirrors. I overcame it by just staying in my lane and staying true to my morals when it came to my training.

Lessons I’ve learned over the past 13years of business are 1) It’s ok to say no, 2) don’t worry about what you can’t control 3) your failures will open doors for good things that you didn’t even see coming.

I want the world to know that our brand does more than train clients. That we try to make them see the same potential we see when they first walk thru out doors.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Well I must say that I’m a fan of wynnwood so we would definitely go there for drinks and a little night life. For dinner would definitely hit up spots like Mila, and Juvia. Brunch spot would definitely be Tap 42 in Aventura. The Mondrian and fountain blu for good pool vibes, And one place I’ve yet to go is the Haulover Sandbar, so that would be on the list!

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?
My number one person I owe my success to is my mentor and former coach Greg Werner. My daughter for giving me purpose. My close friends who always believed in me, deserve credit as well. And The Book Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself.
