The power of technology and the internet has radically upgraded the way trainers deliver fitness content and programs to their students. With the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic, more personal trainers and health coaches have made it big online. And ahead of the pack is Harry Holmes, a fitness trainer who has made major ripples all across the online fitness training world.
Harry King Holmes III is the owner and CEO of King Global Sports and Fitness LLC, a company that is on its way to becoming one of the most influential black-owned online fitness companies in the country. The Chicago-based operation helps countless people all over the nation, and even help the world stay fit and level up their bodies and health. The company’s crown programs have proven more than effective in helping their clients lose weight, increase stamina, and improve their overall quality of life by living healthier.
Ever since high school, Harry Holmes has been a genius at building brands. He knew early on that he would find his sweet spot in entrepreneurship and branding. He started in business with King Entertainment LLC, a nightclub hosting and party company that would serve over eight hundred patrons every weekend. Harry ran the entertainment and nightlife company for eight years. But six years ago, his whole life changed after he became a father.
After his son was born, Harry switched to a healthier and more family-oriented way of life. This decision included staying fit by exercising regularly and finding ways to remain mentally and spiritually healthy. The “dadpreneur” also quit drinking. With time, Harry Holmes’ health and physique improved dramatically, a result that would inspire him to pursue a certification as a personal trainer.
The first few years were rough for Harry. He struggled to keep King Global Sports and Fitness LLC profitable for a season and had to drive Lyft and Uber part-time to make ends meet. Circumstances led to a break-up, and Harry had to move back in with his parents.
But through the difficulties, Harry Holmes chose to persevere. With time, his business started picking up, and he booked more coaching clients. Today, King Global Sports and Fitness is a six-figure online fitness company with a physical gym location in Chicago’s suburbs.
Harry and his team at King Global have helped over one thousand women improve their physical and mental health through a program called The Queen’s Project, a community that continues to grow with time. Earlier in 2020, the fitness guru also launched Fitness Empire Accelerator, a twelve-week intensive that helps train and teach people—most especially women—become professional trainers as well.
Harry Holmes works hard to bring the best results he possibly can for his clients. In the same breath, he aspires to build up more professional personal trainers and build six-figure fitness companies by the end of 2021. In time, Harry hopes to create a business that will run even as he travels the world and continues giving back to the community he grew up in.
