Stanley Donkor combines physical training with psychological coaching to help improve clients’ health and fitness. His holistic approach attracts thousands of clients and followers and secures his spot as today’s top fitness influencer and entrepreneur.
In Stanley’s own words, he was “just a kid from the suburbs of Westerville, Ohio with a dream of helping people achieve their personal fitness goals.” With the hopes of productively channeling his passion, he started a fitness business about three years ago. Even Stanley was caught by surprise that the side hustle he started as a college student at Ohio State University drew in more than a thousand clients.
Not bad at all for a college student to make a living at the same time by doing what he loves the most. That was Stanley’s first taste of success as a fitness influencer and entrepreneur and an early indication of his incredible potential as a trainer. Today, Stanley has more than 61,000 followers on Instagram.
What gives Stanley a competitive edge is his holistic approach to training. He is part of a new wave of coaches who help clients achieve whole-person development. In Stanley’s case, his formal training in psychology allows him to assist clients in strengthening both their mind and body. He complements the physical training that he provides by helping others develop healthier ways of thinking about themselves, overcoming challenges, and attaining growth.
Naturally endowed with a keen insight into the human psyche, Stanley understands that most people who are seeking for transformation are paralyzed by fear. One of the most common tragedies in life is that the self can quickly become one’s worst enemy. Stanley observed that people are consumed by self-loathing, which leads to the failure of achieving the desired changes in life. Too often, people end up just sitting down while feeling bad about themselves.
As a trainer and coach, Stanley provides his clients with the motivation to take action and control over their own lives. With his help, many have found the inner strength that they needed to achieve their fitness goals. Developing genuine personal relationships is a tool that he uses to assist his growing clientele. His outgoing personality makes it easy for him to connect with people on a personal level. He knows that people recognize and respond to a genuine connection. This allows him to increase his positive influence on those he works with.
In the near future, Stanley hopes to scale his fitness business into an empire with the mission of assisting people in accepting their true and best selves. He even admits that a multimillion corporation is part of his vision board, and it’s not difficult to see that come to fruition. However, it was never just about money for Stanley. He believes that each person’s life is a story worth telling. Simply put, Stanley is well-aware of his ability to develop each person’s story into the best version.
