We had the good fortune of connecting with Judd NeSmith and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Judd, how did you come up with the idea for your business?
Many people who are 50+ years old do not have access to properly designed exercise and nutrition programs to help them reach optimum fitness. I created an online personal training business to solve this problem.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Since the age of 15 I have been a certified “gym rat”. I fell in love with strength training at an early age because it helped me overcome a body image complex. Plus it paid off in a big way while playing football and baseball. Adhering to an exercise program taught me discipline and consistency. Both of these habits helped me gain some financial freedom as an entrepreneur in my late 20s.
At age 54 I can honestly say that I have not missed too many days in the gym or participating in my other forms of favorite exercise such as cycling, running, and cross country skiing.
Consistency with an exercise program is key and I can help you with that. I guarantee it.
After spending 12 years in Los Angeles as a network radio executive and entrepreneur, I realized that I needed to pursue more meaningful work that was in line with my core values of health and fitness. I experienced the toll of entrepreneurship and how the stress of operating a business could negatively impact your overall health, especially your fitness. So I sold my company, took some time off, and launched a personal training business in Los Angeles that followed me to Boulder, CO.
I am also proud to be the fitness expert on Best Reviews.com.
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?
First, we would have breakfast at Snooze on Pearl St. in Boulder followed by a drive to Brainard Lake above Boulder off Peak to Peak highway for a long hike, trail, run mountain bike ride or XC skiing adventure. Afterward, we would visit Wibby Brewing in Longmont for some cold beer followed by dinner at The Roost on Main St. in Longmont.
I’d also look for a live music event at Red Rocks or The Mission Ballroom in Denver.
