We had the good fortune of connecting with Coach Litt and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Coach, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
When I thought about starting my business wasn’t until after one of my co-workers asked me to train her. Being a basketball coach and strength and conditioning coach I felt I could help her. She was going with another trainer and she had plateaued and getting her to go from 179 to 134 in two in and half months was amazing.
I then wanted to give a very affordable place where people could come workout and get healthy. I wanted to create a product that was affordable, fun, and has all the bells and whistles that makes getting healthy fun and not feel like a chore.
As I started to do my research, I found that many people started their journey and ended up quitting as it became very expensive to keep going with a trainer or classes. Also, many people did not know where to start and had no one to push them and I know that is something I could do for them and was good at.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I run a fitness gym/fitness studio called MeanVeen Fit Club LLC. It gym/fitness studio that I am very proud of because I started this from the ground up and of course I have had my ups and downs with it. I started this business in 2014 and for the first 6 months I did it for free.
We currently operate out of my home garage as I have turned it into a gym/fitness studio, and when most people hear that or contact us about our services it throws them off a bit. I can tell you what sets apart from many others out there is our pricing. With us you can pay $25 a month and get unlimited group classes, which are about 12 to 16 classes. The classes are never the same, so it keeps the members excited about coming to class (check out some of our reviews online) and never knowing what type of workout they are walking into. We also let our members try the classes out for a week free before they even decided to buy a membership with us.
One of the things that we are most proud of is the fact on how far we have come in the years, but more so how much members really like the classes and always referring others to us. the product that we have created is amazing and has only got better over the years and we are proud of that at MeanVeen Fit Club LLC.
I have got where I am today by just staying committed and continuing to study and perfect my craft. Always bringing new workouts and products to our members and keeping it affordable for them. Was it easy? I will have to say some of it came to me pretty naturally because of my coaching background, but running a business is never easy but definitely worth it.
I have learned in this business that you are not going to be able to always please everyone or get the results for them. Accountability is one of the biggest lessons that I have learned along the way. Holding our members/clients to it has been huge for both them and us.
I want the world to know that our brand and product is affordable, and that there is nothing out there like it. It may look the same as some products out there, but I can assure that it is not. There is so much more to our story and when you become a member of our gym/fitness studio you become family. Your life will change for the better when you come and join MeanVeen Fit Club LLC. Getting healthy should not cost you a lot, because at MeanVeen Fit Club LLC your health is what matters to us and not what is in your pockets. Our slogan is “MeanVeen Fit Club Where Results Are Made!” “Goals Are Met!”, and “Dreams Come True!”
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?
We here in Arizona there is a lot to do especially the outdoors (depending on the time of year it is) that you can do. But if my best friend came, we probably would for sure catch a Phoenix Suns game even though we are both Laker fans…lol! Then I would have to take him by what is called the Protein House. This place is amazing and you can get all the foods that you love, but it is all healthy…I love this place.
Then we will go to this spot called the Sand Bar located down in Chandler, Arizona. This place always has a good vibe and the atmosphere is amazing and always has amazing people there and live music. We will for sure will get us a workout in at our gym, that is a must.
Overall, there is a lot to do here in Arizona and we would find tons to do.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I have 2 people in my life that I would like to shout out. First would be my dad Robert Roberson, who always believed in me and showed me that I could be anything that I wanted in life. He has always been one of my biggest supporters and cheered me on gave me many of the tools that are instilled in me today.
Then there is my high school basketball coach Andre Smith. Now, I can say enough about this man but that he gave me the courage and knowledge of knowing what it takes to be successful. He always challenged me and let know that there was nothing that I couldn’t do and I carry that with me still today in anything that I do. It is another reason why I have been successful in almost everything I have tried or attempted today and in my business.
