At the FIT HUB fitness boutique, the buzzword is personal. From personal training sessions to small group classes to personalized nutrition consulting, FIT HUB’s goal is to make health and fitness enjoyable and individualized.
And to find out where that passion for the personal comes from you don’t have to look any further than owner and founder, Lori Teppara.
For Lori, fitness and health has been a part of her life for, well, her whole life! As a lifelong athlete, exercise and nutrition major, and previous owner of a fitness business, Lori is passionate about bringing fitness to a personal level for those in her community. Instead of creating stress and insecurity, FIT HUB seeks to empower their clients with achievable goals, perseverance and confidence.
We had the chance to learn more about Lori and what makes the woman behind the business.
A. I have been an athlete all of my life and have always enjoyed all things sports and fitness. I studied Exercise and Nutrition in college and have been in the field ever since. I started by personal training in college, and upon graduating, I went into corporate fitness in New York and Connecticut. After three years of being in corporate fitness I started my own business in NY/CT, which offered in-home personal training, and sports and fitness programs in schools. Seven and a half years ago, I sold my company in NY, and we moved to NC. Since moving to High Point, I have worked in employee wellness, bariatric medicine and then decided ultimately to open my own studio.
A. I would flip houses or lead travel excursions.
A. That it’s okay to fail.
A. I love beer and baked goods.
A. Positive endorphins and reaching goals.
A. You won’t know if something works unless you try it.
A. All of Malcolm Gladwell’s books
A. Hmm, so many. Palau, Beijing, Kuala Lumpur, Shanghai, Tuscany, Barcelona, Belize… I love to travel.
A. Typically outside on a field of some kind with my husband and kids
A. Vodka, cran, lime and club.
A. Family, friends, travel and learning new things.
A. Take risks. Do something you love and it will never get old. And do something that helps others.
A. Outside in nature
A. I can’t choose just one. I’m thankful for everyone who is willing to take a risk to start a business that helps grow and expand our town.
A. Rollerblade or run the Greenway, and then stop in at Brown Truck for a beer. Why… because that is what I would do every afternoon if I could. 😉
