We had the good fortune of connecting with Trevor Njoku and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Trevor, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
To keep it plain and simple, I wanted to impact the world on my own terms. I could no longer see myself working in a hospital until retirement because the pandemic showed me that workers are just pawns in a billion-dollar industry. I knew that with my skill set and knowledge base in both fitness & nursing I could bring a unique dynamic to the wellness space and make a difference in the manner that I saw fit. I believe that Kurve Lab will change the lives of millions of people and that’s the type of fulfillment I yearn for.
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?
Kurve Lab is a wellness design company that operates through our 3 pillars which are VITALS, Training, and Recovery. We aim to optimize the health of our consumers while cultivating a lifestyle. We provide personal training to help you reach your aesthetic and/ or performance goals. Our recovery service is to help our clients combat physical stress or improve overall well-being. Lastly VITALS is our uniform/ athletic loungewear which is meant to be the ideal everyday wear for both men and women while keeping wellness in mind. For instance, our most recent launch has a quote on the sleeve which reads “Money Means Nothing From A Hospital Bed”. Everything we do is uniquely designed from training programs to the construction of garments.
At the time of this article, the brand is only 10 months old but I am very proud of where we are today. It hasn’t been easy at all especially with me still working as an Emergency Nurse but the vision of where I want the brand to be in the future keeps me going.
I’d like the world to know that if you join the Kurve Lab community your life will improve, that’s a guarantee. We’re doing what we love to do with positive intent and years later you will be able to tell the story of our growth with pride.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
In NYC I would say you have to shop in Soho, go to a Yankees game in the Bronx, enjoy the view at Domino Park, and check out the gym we operate out of in Long Island City lol
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?
My entire community deserves credit for my story so far. From my classmates who helped me with study material to my friends who remind me of who I am when I get overwhelmed with tasks. No one becomes great on their own. The term “self-made” is rubbish because we all need assistance somewhere along the road and I am no different.
