Inspiring Conversations with Jaron Davis of Imperfect Fitness

Today we’d like to introduce you to Jaron Davis.

Hi Jaron, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
My journey has been a combination of my love for fitness, entrepreneurship, and the pure enjoyment of being creative. I dedicated my entire childhood to being an athlete.

Even going back to grade school. When others would enjoy playing video games in their free time, it was routine for me to go to the library and rent VHS tapes on basketball fundamentals and the like. I began to obsess over anything that I could do to gain an edge on the competition. I fell more in love with the process (pushups, pullups, etc.) of winning than winning itself.

Dually, throughout childhood, I also had dreams of wanting to be a businessman when I grew up. I didn’t know what that even meant, but it sounded cool. A lot of mishaps and overall frustration surrounding dead-end jobs sent me on a relocation from the Midwest to Maryland.

Being from a small blue-collar town (Springfield, Illinois) served me well as I already had the grit needed to thrive in a new metropolitan area, knowing no one at the time of moving. My dream of owning a gym was just that until I started taking action to make it happen

Would you say it’s been a smooth road, and if not what are some of the biggest challenges you’ve faced along the way?
Definitely not a smooth road. I started with literally no money and a pandemic around the corner waiting on me. I quit my day job a few months prior to the shutdown in order to go all in on my vision. My wife and I also had a newborn baby girl and our son to care for.

Starting a business with no capital and very little support is not for the faint of heart. When we say you gotta be built differently, this is a real thing. Again, my love for the process gave me the ability to see obstacles as something I could trample over. I learned some valuable lessons in resilience and even more faith in God for sure.

We don’t make any excuses though around here. I’m a firm believer that in life we have to play the hand we’re dealt and find a way out. The character you end up developing is invaluable.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
Imperfect Fitness is a health and wellness company that believes in solving problems mentally and physically, holistically. Yes, we have a gym location in Millersville, Maryland, but having a gym tells so little about the work that we do.

Our entire approach starts by advocating for mental health. The icing on top just happens to be that we are experts in the line of physical fitness, weight loss, and body transformations. We service the entire DMV, having clients weekly at our gym from as far as Fredericksburg, Virginia, and Delaware. We also have an online coaching program, where we teach people healthier lifestyle choices to improve their mental health and get them in shape along the way. Through coaching, I have been blessed to have clients in almost every state.

We are now focusing on expanding our services as we launched “Maryland Stretch Factory,” an assisted stretch therapy clinic offering numerous benefits to the mind and body in June of 2022. The future is very bright for all people stepping into the world of alternative medicine, and I’m glad we are a part of that growth.

How can people work with you, collaborate with you, or support you?
