We had the good fortune of connecting with Kennedy Watkins and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kennedy, what is the most important factor behind your success?
The most important factors behind my success? I would say I have plenty of things and people that has motivated me to keep going. When I started my fitness journey I wasn’t sure if I would be consistent so I decided to make sticky notes to make sure I go to the gym after class. Another important factor behind my success is the support from my family and others. Once I started my fitness page so many people reached out to me and wanted to know more about my journey. I then knew I inspired many. My family always told me if this is something I wanted to do to give it my all and I did just that. God, Motivation, inspiration and support is why I keep going every day.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
My business is set apart from others because I focus on motivating my clients and nourishing them with love and inspiration. Everyday I post encouraging words and new diet plans on my page to reach out to everyone to help them fall in love with being healthy. Next, I am most excited about is helping others. As a child I always wanted to help others achieve their goals. In the future I will be looking for my own personal gym that will be only for women. The reason behind having a all women’s gym is because women feel more comfortable working around other women instead of men. How did I get to where I am today? I would say God and strength because the road has not been easy there are days I still want to give up. It’s hard to be consistent due to me having a auto-immune disorder that attacks my joints causing my body to hurt. The lessons I have learned about my business is never settle for less also push forward regardless if you have clients or not. There were times I would have no clients and I would be so discouraged. With faith and guidance from God I kept promoting my business. After a while clients started to roll in. I am so grateful to help others become the best version they can possible be. I want the world to know that I once was being called fat and big. I once use to cry and eat my life a way but I want you to know that you can overcome these obstacles and can lose the weight.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would like to shout out my Mother her name is Sherkia Conwright-Watkins for always pushing me to be great. She has two businesses that I believe deserves credit. One of the businesses is called New Beginnings Healthy Hair. A hair growth company that helps those who suffer from Alopecia and thinning of the hair or looking for healthy growing follicles. Her next business is Mocca Kre8tionz she customize and print brands, shirts, hoodies, joggers, pillows, bags and necklaces. On Instagram her pages are @newbeginningshh and @mocca_kre8tionz.
