We had the good fortune of connecting with Brittany Noelle and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Brittany, can you talk to us a bit about the social impact of your business?
My business helps to impact the community in many ways. I provide free resources on how to eat healthier, live a toxic free life, how to workout effectively, and relieve pain related to poor movement patterns. I help people become stronger and more confident through weight training and mindset coaching. My home fitness programs have helped many people during the pandemic who were unable to go to the gym but needed to stay active. I love that I’m able to help people around the world with my online personal training programs. Helping people to live healthier lives and to have access to proper wellness information is super important to me. I hope to impact many more people as the years go by.
What should our readers know about your business?
I have an online personal training business. I create custom workout programs for my clients based off their needs and specific lifestyles. I also provide my clients with nutrition coaching that doesn’t involve diets or restrictive eating. My business is unique because it’s all done through my fitness app and doesn’t require my clients to meet me at a specific time to workout, yet I’m still able to hold them accountable and help them with workout form.
Initially, one of the struggles was getting people to understand how online training works. The first 8 years of my personal training career, I trained people 1 on 1 in person. Once I built my social media presence, I wanted to be able work online full time but had trouble getting my in person clients to consider online. Once the pandemic started and gyms were closed, more of my clients were willing to try online training as an alternative. Also at that time, other people were looking for options for training at home and to stay active. I was fortunate that I already had the infrastructure in place to be able to run an online business before the pandemic started. So although my in person business suffers, my online business grew. Now I’m able to work full time online and I love it because it allows me the freedom to spend time with my loved ones.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Right now LA Is a bit of a mess with the pandemic. So some of my favorite restaurants (Beauty & Essex, Da Michele Hollywood, Medici, Nobu, Playa Provisions, and Qusqo Bistro) are closed or only doing take out. But I would for sure spend a day driving through Malibu and stopping at a few of my favorite beaches. I’d also have to stop my Malibu Country Mart for a sandwich.
Another day we would hang out in Mid City. Take photos outside of LACMA, walk the Grove and farmers market, and then grab tacos from a food truck on La Brea. Then head up to North Hollywood, visit the Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Studios in the evening and then drive to Hollywood & Highland to see the walk of fame.
The next day we would be spend on the West Side. We’d walk the boardwalk from Washington to Venice and see the street performers and artists. Visiting James’ Beach for a cocktail and tacos is a must. It’s a great place to hang out when it’s open and the owner is the sweetest. Also, nothing beats a sunset at the Venice Whaler and margaritas at Baja Cantina. We would also head up to Santa Monica to visit 3rd street and then catch the views from UCLA’s main campus to see the city. I would also recommend visiting the Ghetty Center when it’s open if you’re on the west side. The gardens are spectacular.
Another day would of course be dedicated to Downtown. If you’re a Laker fan you’ll want to see the Staples Center and walk around LA LIVE . You may also want to catch a baseball game at Dodger stadium or hit up a few breweries and wine tastings in the art district.
Those are just a few of my favorite things to do in Los Angeles and I didn’t even cover the South Bay Area or the valley. I’ll get to those in a shoutout another time.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
My mentor Gwen Lane and the Spark Society has helped me to make a greater impact with my social media which I’m forever grateful for. I also attribute the book, You’re a Badass At Making Money for changing my money mindset and inspiring me to take my business to the next level.
