Business Visit | E'ville Fitness | #repitlocal
--
E'ville Fitness is so much more than just a gym…owners Carie and Eric Terry have created a business that is committed to staying strongly connected to the roots of our Edwardsville community. Carie shared her story that included getting hooked on fitness and maintaining a healthy lifestyle years ago when her children were young. She firmly believes that a healthy lifestyle is key to maintaining positive physical, mental and emotional health.

After working as a personal trainer for a number of years, Carie decided to take the plunge and jump start her own gym. She purchased a previously owned gym space in a coveted location in Edwardsville and turned it into E'ville Fitness. Through lots of hard work, she was able to increase member enrollment from 23 to 563!! Shortly thereafter, COVID struck. Her strong member base and community ties helped keep her afloat throughout the past year and now, her gym is blossoming!

During our talk and tour, we were able to meet with Carie, Eric and one of the gym’s phenomenal personal trainers (Jared Roosa). During these discussions, several key takeaways stood out:
• Customer satisfaction is KEY—there are several other great gyms in the Edwardsville area, E’ville Fitness aims to treat their clients like family and give them the ultimate one-on-one experience to set them apart.
• Don’t let the naysayers get you down…do, however, let them FUEL your FIRE!
• Community is huge – cross market with other local businesses to help lift each other up, for we all have a say in how our community grows.
• Find your passion, and it is OK if you don’t know what your passion is right this second. Don’t be afraid to pivot ideas or even careers! If you work hard and continue to fight to gain a career in something you love, you will find true happiness.

A huge thank you to Carie Riess- Terry and her husband Eric for welcoming us to your second home. We are inspired by your story and cannot thank you enough for meeting with us today!
