Today we’d like to introduce you to Kenzie Mariano.
So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Fitness, health, and helping others all first started as hobbies of mine. I was an athlete throughout my middle and high school years until I got very sick and injured. I’ll never forget my last cross country race. I broke my record, placed top 20 in the state of Florida, and did all of this while unknowingly having mono, strep throat, high fever and a sprained ankle. As you can imagine after that I was bed rest for about 2+ months. To this day I find myself running low on energy and getting sick often not only because of this incident but also because I was a premature baby. With all this said, I started a new journey in my life. I wanted to find a way to keep myself healthy. I needed to find a way so I wouldn’t feel so crappy all the time. And that is when I started getting myself in the gym everyday, taking vitamins, and really focusing in on what I was eating. I went about my life and went to the University of Alabama.
Scared to really chase my dreams, I settled for getting my degree in Marketing, because hey, there’s plenty of marketing jobs out, there right? I did minor in Nutrition though just because that’s what I loved and that’s what I wanted to learn everything about. I graduated from the University of Alabama in 2016 and was stuck.
Did I want to get a 9-5 job where I sat in a cubical all day working for someone else or did I want to take the risk, do what I love, and be my own boss. Well I went with option 2. I am now my own boss, working every hour of the day, training clients from all over, and making others healthier and happier versions of themselves. I’ve always been the type of person who gets truly happy when I see others happy, and that’s a huge goal of mine, to make others happy and confident with themselves. Running and working out have always been a sense of escape for me. I work out not to lose weight or look a certain way, I do it because I enjoy it, I need it, it clears my mind and keeps me sane. It’s a lifestyle. It’s my life.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Nothing is ever easy as most of us know. Starting your own business is probably one of the most challenging things a human can do, and you won’t understand until you try for yourself.
I started my business 6 months ago so I know I still have a lot of events, good and bad, to encounter and grow from, and I’m ready to take on any challenge that come my way. Yes, I have days or even weeks where I want to quit and go take that 9-5 marketing job that pays well, but then I snap myself out of it and get back to fulfilling my dreams. I’ve used my marketing knowledge to promote myself, my business, build my own website, make my own logo, and the list goes on. Some of my biggest struggles so far is not making nearly enough money, working 18 hours a day, and just trying to do everything I possibly can to get my business off the ground. Don’t get me wrong for starting 6 months ago I am doing great, it is just a consistently challenging process starting your own company, but it’s all worth it. Being truly happy and waking up to do what I love everyday, I couldn’t ask for anything else. There is no other word for it besides grateful.
Please tell us about Kenzie Mariano Fit.
I am self branded for my personal training services as Kenzie Mariano Fit. I do online and in person training along with meal planning, and being a life coach to most of my clients. What makes me different? I make everything we do personalized. I customized the workouts and meal plans to work for YOU. I will never give 2 clients the same plans.
We are all different, and you deserve to be treated like so and get your money’s worth.
With social media today, it’s easy for the average person to get sucked in to spending hundreds of dollars on workout programs created by Instagram models with good bodies who have no knowledge on fitness or health. They just know what works for them and expect it to work for everyone else, and people fall for it. That physically is impossible if you want fast accurate results. You need a system that works for you, and that is what I’m here for. Once you are my client, I give you my all, I consider you family.
I want you to achieve your goals just as much as you do.
