We had the good fortune of connecting with Melvin Harden III and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Melvin, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
LéWork Fitness mission is about helping everyone reach their highest self. When you begin to take the necessary and uncomfortable steps to become your best self you unintentionally help others shine their own light as well. So with preaching and instilling these habits into every client and person that follows LéWork Fitness, this creates a chain reaction from the Dallas community to the entire world! A lot of us fail to realize we make pointless excuses just to stay in our comfort zone, yet most complain about not having any growth in their lives. Many are not aware that there is no growth in a comfort zone and never will be. This also goes for our diets too whether it’s physical, financial, spiritual, etc.. Everyone must acknowledge their faults and analyze what is really holding them back, and then plan to overcome those things. It’s very simple, we just must remove our feelings from the situation and do what’s needed to be done. Those methods have helped LéWork Fitness reach Texas, California, Oregon, Washington, New York, Canada, South Africa, and many more places so it is great to know the world is slowly but surely being changed for the better one person at a time.
Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
Nothing worth having is every easy right? Growing your brand when you have never done it is always challenging in the beginning. I would say I overcame that but accepting that organic growth is the best and you can’t lose when everything is genuine. I understood I had to pay my dues like everyone else and create my own method that worked best for myself and my business. What sets LéWork Fitness apart from others is the style and way of training. You never know what type of workout you are going to get and each of them push your limits every single time. Whether it’s the slam ball, battle ropes, resistance bands, agility ladder, etc., you give max effort and see yourself do things you deemed as impossible for yourself daily. Also as a trainer I make sure I have cooling towels, and nano silver spray (immune system booster) for clients to make sure they keep their composure when they are tired and ready to quit. I also live the lifestyle I preach so I make it very hard for people not to believe what I say when it comes to certain methods to maximize your inner and outer being. I want the world to know that nothing in your life will change until you change.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
I guess we are talking about before Covid-19 and week long trip wouldn’t be happening in my city so I will talk about a cool, chill, weekend trip. Of course first thing on the agenda is to workout and get that sweat in for the day. Next get ready to hit the farmer’s market to get some good food to eat on. Nine times out of ten I would most likely get something from Bam’s Vegan to eat since that is my favorite spot there. After that we could hit Klyde Warren Park to see what activities are going on for the day, and decide if we want to hit a NBA Game for the night or go watch all the sports at a bar. We have a couple of arcade bars in Dallas as well. Most of the dopest activities are seasonal and that itinerary would depend on what’s available in the area as well.
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?
I would like to shoutout everyone who has every given LéWork Fitness a try with anything that has been offered or posted. Without them none of this would even be possible! When they change their lives and you see the happiness increase along with the confidence that is worth more than gold and can not be taken away. Also “The Alchemist” by Paulo Coehlo changed my life and helped me tap back in to becoming my best self to help others do the same.
