Meet the small businesses built on Bounce House in the Small Business Spotlight series. LeeVon Perry, a personal trainer in Colorado, shares his journey to help people achieve their fitness goals, with his company, Big N Burly LLC


To begin, LeeVon, tell us how you have gotten to where you are today - a small business owner.

I played college football and graduated at North Dakota State University. After, I  was working with "at risk" youth, though it was morally rewarding, it wasn't too good for my emotional state and my wallet. Switching from that to personal training was better but I missed working and helping those kids. Since I have a genuine passion for both, I came to realize that there isn't really a perfect job for that - so I made one.


Speak to the mission of Big N Burly LLc. What do you want people to achieve by working with you?

I plan to help people reach their best them, whatever that goal is. Of course we'll work on changing some bad habits but ultimately I'm a personal trainer and getting someone to their goal is always top priority.


For the kids, part of my work is reaching out to Youth Centers and Treatment Centers to show kids that someone does cares and how healthy habits at a young age can make a world of difference.


What has been the most rewarding and most challenging aspect to starting your business?

Knowing that I can take the work ethic I got from a D1 football program and an NFL program and instead of putting all my hard work so someone else can reap the benefits, now I get to.

How has COVID-19 affected business, and what are the ways in which you have made changes to your typical day to day?

It's made a difference in the interaction phase. Definitely more online clients but, hey progress is progress even if we have to be states away.


For other people, hesitant to move forward with their own business ideas, what advice would you give them?

It's never the "right time" if you're going to go for it DO IT. I promise there will always be jobs.

In the next 5 years, where do you hope to see yourself and Big N Burly LLC?

Thriving. I plan on taking a step back, having a couple different trainers under the company and helping them reach their full potential and carry on what are overall mission is as a whole.
