Leslie assists new recruits at the base to pass required running times.  She wanted to reach out to the community to help others with exercise and fitness and thought this would be a good time to start her own training business.

Leslie assists new recruits at the base to pass required running times. She wanted to reach out to the community to help others with exercise and fitness and thought this would be a good time to start her own training business. Leslie came to the Angelo State University • Small Business Development Center and met with Advisor Paul Howard for help in getting this business started. Paul suggested client work on a business plan to determine feasibility of this project. Leslie did her homework and talked with her husband and they decided to start the business on a much smaller scale. Leslie did just that and she is now quite busy with her new business. 

Off the Grid Fitness was born and Leslie is happily pursuing her dream as a small business owner. This business created one new job for San Angelo and the Concho Valley. Hopefully many will benefit by learning how to train properly and consistently.
