What's your business, and who are your customers?

Gymati is the first fitness body spray with sweat shield technology designed to keep you smelling fresh during and after physical activities. Powered by air, 100% vegan with zero aluminum, and proudly made in the USA. Gymati is for men and women who want to feel confident and focus on performance rather than body odor.

Tell us about yourself

I love excelling in sports and being the best version of myself. I started exercising to get my daily dose of dopamine to help me overcome my childhood struggles. During my journey, I have grown a genuine passion for helping others be the best version of themselves.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

The fact that thousands of athletes from across the nation are sharing positive feedback on Gymati and how they finally found something that really works. It always makes me feel happy knowing that I helped someone.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

It’s challenging to keep believing in yourself and your business decision because, most of the time, things don’t work out as planned.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Be nice to every person who crosses your path. You never know, they may help you one day.
  2. If taking risks for your business feels like a risk, you are in the wrong business.
  3. Being grateful every morning for all the things you already have will help you keep going no matter how hard life can get.
