Getting To Know Kyle Mims, Owner of HOTBOX Fitness

We have the privilege of working with some of the most amazing people and business owners that our great country has to offer.  Today, we want to recognize one of our amazing clients, Kyle Mims.  Kyle is the owner (and also a trainer) at HOTBOX Fitness, which is located in the Gulch in the heart of downtown Nashville.  HOTBOX Fitness is touted as “The Most Intense, Ass Lifting, Body Toning, Fat Melting Group Fitness You Will Ever Love…Let Us Prove It.”  HOTBOX Fitness has been a staple in the Nashville fitness scene for going on a decade, and is as busy as ever!
We find that some of the greatest inspiration available to us is located right within our list of clients.  In a recent interview with Kyle, first we spent some time catching up.  You can imagine that due to his busy schedule from constantly being in demand, his free time is limited.  We are constantly amazed at how these owners and entrepreneurs are constantly working within their business to not just thrive, but to continue to thrive through continued growth in both their client bases, and also their services they provide to our communities.  Kyle is without a doubt one of the best we have seen in Nashville.  It’s obvious to us, that for Kyle, the business only thrives as much as his customer base does.   As a matter of fact, his customer base is more like a community or a family that anything else.
Let’s get to know a little more about Kyle and HOTBOX Fitness, shall we…
1) What are the top 3 or top 5 things that people should know about you and/or your business and they don’t…or that they presume that is incorrect?
“I believe a lot of people, before they get to know us, assume all trainers live “fit” and perfect lifestyles, in and out of the gym. All of our trainers do share a common love for working out, sweating, and feeling as good as we can, but we have our off days and weeks, just like everyone else. Burgers, fries, cookies, tequila, yup, it all happens haha. Hotbox will never preach that you have to live the “fit” lifestyle each and everyday. Set goals, have a plan, be consistent, and don’t beat yourself up when you fall of the wagon, but own it when you do and pick right back up where you left off. Hotbox isn’t just about fitness and exercise, it’s about being yourself and cutting loose too.
The most common misconception with gyms in general would have to be the idea that you must be in decent shape to start hotbox or other intense workouts. Classes like hotbox’s are what help you get in shape.”
2. What are the top 3 things that hotbox has gifted you that you wouldn’t have had you not opened or owned the company?
“Before hotbox came along, I was a full time touring musician in a punk rock band traveling the world in a van and going wild with my best friends pretty much every minute that we weren’t sleeping. After stepping away from music, I enrolled in school to purse nursing, and although I was genuinely excited about that career, I knew I would have to curb my personality a little bit as the medical/hospital industry was a little bit different of an environment than being in a punk band. When hotbox came along, I didn’t hesitate to jump at the opportunity and parted ways with nursing school. Part of the beauty of the working there, and one of the things that make hotbox so unique, is that everyone is encouraged to be themselves and embrace their weirdness. We make sure to bring on really solid individuals who will care for the clients and not be afraid to share their true personality.”
3) What’s next for Kyle Mims?
“I’m a firm believer in setting goals, and according to my goal sheet, hotbox has about 5 stores to open up within the next 3 years and have 10 total by 2023! If your goals aren’t a little scary, they might not be big enough. Outside of hotbox, I’m always trying to find a way to learn more about myself, so I can be the best version of me and be a better husband to my gorgeous wife!”
