PCA USA Podcast: Episode 23 | Kevin Taylor Interviews Connor Blackmon of Heroes Fitness
In podcast episode 23, host Kevin Taylor revisits personal trainer and fitness center owner Connor Blackmon.
When we last talked to Connor Blackmon, he was about to officially launch his new physical location in Riverview, Florida. Since then, he's had his grand opening and a great show of support from friends, clients, and the surrounding area.
Opening Heroes Fitness was a two year process. He has dreamed of opening a gym, ever since becoming a personal trainer. He realized that talking wasn't moving his dream forward, so he took action. He talks about the process of opening the gym in detail on his own YouTube channel.
Heroes Fitness is 2,000 square feet, with an open design that allows for group fitness and boot camps. The fitness studio also employs personal trainers Gilda and Rob. The facility offers:
The turf and Captain America posters stand out at Heroes Fitness. But, we also love his YouTube videos, interaction with clients on social media, and his focus on fun, energetic bootcamps.
We said it before and we will say it again, Connor doesn't just talk - he takes action. So it's no surprise that he recently competed in his second contest during the Europa.
What is different from the first contest to the second contest? Connor says he brought in a different mindset. He went from wanting to be the best in a show, to bringing his best physique to the show. The result was a more enjoyable and fun competition experience. And we have to say, he looked amazing for the show. Next up for him, he is bringing a Heroes Fitness team to PCA USA in Lakeland in August. We look forward to seeing Connor, Gilda and Nicole on stage.
