Today we’d like to introduce you to Starr Williams.
Alright, thank you for sharing your story and insight with our readers. To kick things off, can you tell us how you got started?
I started my fitness journey after dancing professionally and playing semi-pro football in an all-women’s league that came to a halt due to several injuries. I then went on a regular job that was unfulfilling.
I decided to go to school for personal training and small group at Heritage College. I then became aware of how important it is to be mentally and physically well. In 2014 I competed in my first fitness competition, placing third and fifth. By this time, the fitness bug has laid eggs.
I went on to compete for the second time in 2016, earning my “Pro Card.” The same year I quit my last job at QT with another injury, but it was my time to heal myself and push my brand StarrLuvlyBodies. With all the injuries that I have been dealing with, along with life traumas. My mental health has become extremely important. My motto is what my mom said to me “Get Yo Ass Up And Do SOMETHING!!!”
I began training full time out of my house basement to now at my location on 43rd Monroe Ave, called “the basement.” We have all types of classes and mental/physical goals we set to achieve.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been fairly smooth?
In this business, working full time for myself has not been an easy road because when dealing with people, they may not be as consistent with showing up or continuing their membership. So you have to know what months will be your most challenging, then you can prepare for bills and such.
Thanks – so what else should our readers know about StarrLuvlyBodies-LLC?
StarrLuvlyBodies is a place for women to express their “Softness&Strength.” It’s a space to release mental trauma through discussion while sculpting our bodies. We have several classes: dance aerobics, high step, StarrPOW bands, big heavy tires, and more. We have a hot sauna as well. I believe StarrLuvlyBodies is known for our slogan to Get Yo Ass Up And Do SOMETHING, sculpting the body, and mental breakthrough. I’m most proud of our consistency through the years and all the women we’ve touched. I want the readers to know that no matter the situation or how you’re feeling, you CAN do everything, so GET YO ASS UP AND DO SOMETHING!!!
What do you like and dislike about the city?
I love the fact that Kansas City is growing more into fitness. The statistics “used” to say we were a state growing 13% in obesity each year.
I believe Kansas City needs to create more programs for mental health as well as physical.
