Sweat Quote of the Day

When everything seems like an uphill struggle, just think of the view from the top
Author Unknown

                    On every journey to the top of your mountain, there may be slips. There will be rough grounds, unpredictable weather, and even some scary and threatening situations. But just think, is all of this mess worth getting to the top? That is a question that only you will know the true answer. Should it be ‘yes’, which I promise is worth it, you will carry on and overcome any struggles that come your way to make sure you get to the top of the mountain. There is satisfaction, strength, power and relaxation at the top of that mountain and its your time to soak it in. Now, you cant stay on that mountain forever, so consider your options. You could go back down and be back where you started, or you can take a leap of faith, grab your parachute, and jump to your new life. You must trust that that your hard work will stay with you and lead you to your new and improved life.

Sweat Equity
As an avid fitness enthusiast, it made perfect sense for Evan Settle to open his own personal training studio Sweat (1215 E Cary St.). W­hen it came to deciding where to locate his business, it didn’t take long for him to choose a renovated warehouse on Cary Street that was initially built in 1866.

Settle: “Running my own business is one of the best decisions I have ever made, it has been a true learning experience.”

A Downtown Location: W­hen it came to deciding where to locate his business, it didn’t take long for Settle to choose a renovated warehouse on Cary Street that was initially built in 1866.

GRID: Why did you choose  this location for Sweat?

I fell in love the exposed beams, exposed brick, and just being in an historical building. I do think my studio is on the nicest block in Richmond.

GRID: Starting up a gym seems pretty daunting. 

Running my own business is one of the best decisions I have ever made, it has been a true learning experience. I am living my dream. It also helps that what I am doing is my true passion.

GRID: How important is the space and location of your business?

My goal here is to meet everyone’s individual needs and I believe being in such a centralized location helps me serve a greater cross-section of the Richmond area.

GRID: What are your future plans for the studio?

My future plans include expansion, possibly to a new larger location, so I can serve more of Richmond. If there is one thing I have learned it’s there is a much larger need in Richmond for a high-end fitness facility, which is my next project.
