We had the good fortune of connecting with Ryan & Sara Vowell and we’ve shared our conversation below.

One of the most rewarding things about getting to know so many entrepreneurs and creatives is seeing first-hand how many of them are focused on so much more than just financial results. So many of the folks we connect with are focused on having a positive social impact on their community or the world at large. Can you talk to us about how you are helping the community?
We are a husband and wife team with over 10 years of personal training experience. After spending years in corporate careers, we began to see the unhealthy effects it had on lifestyle, family and friends. We made it our passion to help others improve the quality of their lives through fitness and nutrition. Our dream was to create a place where people could come together as a community to empower one another and make each other stronger than they were yesterday. Green Zone Fitness is where everyone from beginners to advanced athletes can come to get a results-driven workout in a fraction of the time… and price. Green Zone Fitness is an all-encompassing private gym and group training studio where members can come to achieve their goals in a sustainable way. We understand the demands of a busy schedule and have created workouts for maximum effectiveness and saving clients time in the gym. We use our passion and enthusiasm for health to empower members of all fitness levels to reach their goals through fun, energizing and innovative workouts It is our mission to create a community of people who strive to get STRONGER TOGETHER!

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
– We would take them to some of our favorite restaurants including True Food, Simons Hot Dogs, Hulas, Postinos, Herb Box, Barrio Queen, Tocaya and Windsor. – If we were taking day trips we would hit Sedona and Flagstaff – Fun outings would include Top Golf or bowling at Zanzero.

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?
Building and opening Green Zone Fitness had no shortage of obstacles and hardships. Not only were we trying to open during a global pandemic, but we also had a detrimental contractor situation that set us back months. If it was not for our close friends and family during these trying times, we would not have been able to move forward with the project. The contractor who ended up helping us complete the project, Jeff Finley with Phoenix Contracting Services, cannot go unrecognized. If it weren’t for him, his guidance, expert team and dedication to our project, we would not have been able to finish the build out. Finally, we have to give major thanks to all of our founding members who stuck with us through the difficult times. They purchased their memberships before we opened our doors (expecting us to be open much sooner) and they stuck by us through all the delays and setbacks. It took a village to get Green Zone Fitness up and running. We are forever grateful and appreciative of everyone who helped make it happen.
