An interview with owner Stephanie Baker
So, let’s start with are you from this local area?
“Yes, I am. I am from West Bridgewater, MA. I grew up in West Bridgewater. Once I had a child I was planted.”
Tell me about your business? Why did you choose this line of business?
“I started out as a client. This was how I got my baby weight off and it was actually the only program that not only worked for me, but I fell in love with. I was actually a paralegal. When I fell in love with the program here, I proceeded to get my training certification. I started training here one night a week for fun. Two years later, I bought the former owner out. I have owned the studio for two and a half years now. We are small group training facility for women only. This provides a comfortable environment for women to train. It consists of personal training, cardio, accountability, and nutrition. We start where you are, and we help you meet your personal fitness goals because everyone’s is different. “
When did it start? What Year?
“I started training in 2013, two years later in 2015, I bought out the business.”
What was it that made you want to start this business?
“I have a real passion for fitness because I can relate to these women. I went through the same struggles that they did. The former owner was ready to retire, so I wanted to continue the program. There is no better feeling than seeing a woman hop on a scale and having a successful weigh in. Teaching women how to build self-confidence is a great feeling.”
If you had to start over from day 1, what would you have done differently? Or what was your most difficult challenge?
“The hardest part is learning how to strike a balance between the business and your personal life. Running a business is more than just full-time job and it can interfere with your personal time. Luckily, I have a great staff that helps me coordinate everything.”
