Tell us a little about your business/organization:  how did it begin; what are your services/products, etc.

CNU Fit is Kent County’s leading personalized fitness coaching company for successful, busy professionals to lose weight, fit their clothes better, increase confidence, and boost their energy.Personalized fitness coaching combines regular assessments, strength training, nutrition, and lifestyle coaching to give individuals the support and accountability they need in order to boost their metabolism and reach their goals. We empower our clients to be the best version of themselves.

Since our founding in 2009 by Evans Armantrading, a local business leader who is passionate about fitness, freedom, finances, faith, and mentoring individuals through life and business, we have been awarded North America’s Fitness Business of the Year for 2017 and endorsed by medical experts for our safe and effective programs. Through our easy to understand coaching techniques and our experienced and knowledgeable staff, we’ve helped over 2,300 individuals lose over 35,000 pounds.

Tell us about your role in the business/organization.

As the Office Manager, I wear multiple hats in the company across both locations. A good summary is that I run the day to day operations: anything from client billing and scheduling, to leading our team, meeting with clients and ensuring they are meeting their goals, and conducting consultations for potential clients. I’m the first face you see when you become a client, and I ensure everything is in place to give you the best experience possible.

Tell us something that makes your business/organization unique. 

Unlike large group fitness classes or personal trainers that offer incomplete programs without accountability, CNU Fit is the only one that has a non-intimidating environment with all the tools needed to deliver long-term, sustainable results. We support our clients to lose weight, fit their clothes better, increase their confidence, and boost their energy through all of our programs, from our hands-on assisted stretching program to our nutritional coaching led by a team of registered dietitians. Everything we do is individualized because we truly believe the fitness is a lifestyle, and cookie cutter programs are a quick way to fail in reaching your goals.

What do you see for the future of your business/organization?

In the next 3-5 years we want to impact as many people as possible. Currently we have two locations (Dover & Milford) as well as we are the only personal trainers contracted to train clients at Dover Air Force Base. Of course we would like to expand our reach with more locations that way we can have a bigger impact on helping Delawarians become the best versions of themselves.

How has the Chamber helped your business/organization grow?

The Chamber has made a huge impact in helping our organization grow. We have met many of our current and past clients through mixers and other events.  We make it a priority to never miss a function.  Attendance at these events is essential to us in connecting with other business owners in order to grow our reach and maximize our impact.  We also place a great value on the legislative support we receive through the work of the CDCC.

What is your best advice to other businesses/organizations?

Definitely don’t be afraid to get out there in the community! Also, maximize your staff. It’s awesome to bring staff members with you to different events because it may get them out of their comfort zone and allow them to see what it takes for client acquisition, as well as what it means to truly be a part of the Kent County Business Community.
