A Chat with Larkin Magnus Fitness
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? I used to be overweight myself at 300+ lbs, but now I'm a competitive bodybuilder. I know what it's like to be out of shape and severely overweight, and I use my personal experiences to help my clients turn their lives around the way I did for myself.
Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged? Variety is the key to a successful routine. If you are doing the same thing every day, you will eventually stop seeing results. I put my clients through new and variable routines to make sure they are always progressing. Progress is the biggest motivator.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I used to teach English at a university while I was doing my PhD and realized that teaching that way wasn't for me. But I was exercising every day and thought I could make it a livelihood! So I stopped teaching literature and started teaching people how to live healthy lives.
What do you love most about your job? I love seeing the look on someone's face when they see before and after pictures, or see that their weight dropped, or see that their measurements changed. It motivates me to see my clients motivated.
