Ken Belveal – Growing up I was always small and I got picked on a lot – probably no more than anyone else but I thought it was a lot. My mom told me to tell them “you’re just a big bully”. Well, that went over well. Not. Finally my dad, who was a 6’4″ and 230 lbs. ex-marine, heard about what was going on and asked me to exercise with him. I did and after six months of exercising we had to take our shirts off in gym class and I heard the two boys next to me whisper “look at his chest”. Guess what, no one picked on me after that! I thought that was pretty cool and so I started exercising more. So much so that my dad asked me if I could do this for eight hours a day. I said that I could.
I promptly went off to college and got a degree in finance and was a banker for five years. I was the credit manager and one day when I was talking to a loan officer and I fell asleep! He had to clap his hands together to wake me up. I gotta get out of this business. I quit my job in Wyoming and moved to Houston not knowing what I was going to do. I filled out this book called What Color is your Parachute. It’s a workbook that narrows your answers to four things that you would like or be good at and guess what – personal training is what I should have been doing all along.
They say to find what you love to do and you’ll never work a day in your life. Well I have found what I love! Helping people achieve their fitness goals gives me great pleasure.
I have been training people for 22 years now helping hundreds relieve pain, lose weight, get strong, etc. I have 3 certifications – ACSM personal trainer, PFIT personal trainer, PFIT rehabilitation specialist.
I have a beautiful wife and am also blessed with 2 wonderful children. We are excited to be a part of the community and love the people we have met here.
Enough about me, how can I help you?
