We had the good fortune of connecting with Giles Chapman and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Giles, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
My thought process in regards to starting my own business was simple, how can I affect as many lives as possible in a positive way, doing something I love to do, while still making money! It instantly hit for me, I made a promise to myself that I would never give up on my dream of becoming a successful business owner no matter how hard things may get, don’t give up. I am blessed to say that I am now a successfully owner of one of the most influential Sports Performance organizations on the west coast. I am growing daily, always learning, and constantly challenging myself to reach new heights! 2021 I’ve been on full throttle and can’t wait to see what the near future holds for Xclusive Speed Sports Performance.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Xclusive Speed Sports Performance is a complete year-round fast twitch muscle training program that focuses on body stabilization speed/quickness, reaction time, explosiveness, as well as body composition and flexibility. We have been blessed to establish ourself as a prime performance hub within the West Coast!
The road to get here took a lot of consistency and smart marketing tactics. We have developed an unique training style that has been documents in a way that instantly catches the audience’s eye. Though social media and word of mouth, our training style grew rapidly! Staying focused on our bigger picture was always the objective, we never wanted to veer off into another lane – Staying true to our morals and values was key and it’s something we live by day in and day out.
We’ve been in partnership with the likes of Adidas Football, Dicks Sporting Goods, FlyWheel Cycle, WeBall Sports, amongst many others.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Week Long Stay!
Definitely have to eat good! A must stop would be Everrett & Jones BBQ, right in Jack London Square, Oakland, CA.
Then have to get a few good training sessions in with us of course after all the good food!
Might want to hop on the bridge and travel to SF and walk along the Piers. it’s a tourist city and there is so much site seeing to do out there! The Bay Area has so much to offer, and the adventures are endless! The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
This on going process is definitely challenging at times, however the support system we have from individuals is amazing and together we continue to get through any obstacles that may stand in our way. My parents, grandmother, and the wonder mother of my two amazing boys, have been my support system through this entire process. Respectfully, these individuals hold a special place in my business success, from positive advice, new ideas, different outlook on deals and decisions, etc!
