Today we’d like to introduce you to Brett Radosta of Team Radosta Swim, Fitness and Stand Up Paddleboards.
Brett Radosta, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I have always had an entrepreneurial spirit. I started my first company with my Dad when I was 12. It was a New Orleans Sno-Ball stand located in East Atlanta. We sold it when I went to college. I met my wife during college and we started a family. I did the 9-5 thing for about 15 years. I grew up as a swimmer and always had a passion to living a healthy lifestyle and as I got older and busier I realized the gap between living healthy and living unhealthy was getting wider and wider and I was headed towards unhealthy.
During the economic downturn that started in 2008, I began to evaluate things that are important to me and decided to create a company that I could use as a vehicle to live more intentional and to share my passions with others.
In 2008, I formed Team Radosta Fitness and Nutrition and started with 7 clients that wanted to live a healthier, balanced life. Since then we have expanded from a 5:30 am group fitness class into Workplace and School wellness programs, Stand up Paddleboarding and swim lessons. We are currently in the process of launching a Podcast that is designed to motivate and inspire individuals to create a path from a busy, over-scheduled life to a life of well-being and balance.
