The Dialogue with Heavy Harris
This feature is a question-and-answer session with a new Blount County Chamber member. So here we go with our 53rd installment visiting with Heavy Harris, president of Dynabody Fitness Equipment which makes top quality fitness equipment for schools, home or privately owned gyms at an affordable price.
Describe what Dynabody does. We manufacture the Dynabody brand of fitness equipment as well as operate a 24 hour gym.
How did you get started in this business? I am a former power lifter & followed my passion.
What is your background? I have an engineering degree from the University of North Carolina.
What impacts your business most? It is very difficult for schools that do not have winning sports teams to get funding for the best equipment available in spite of our rock bottom pricing for the schools.
Name three things you wish you knew when you started . Employee retention & problems. How to collect $20.00 from somebody for a gym membership.
What do you enjoy about running Dynabody? Please look at our school galleries on our website. Our custom made equipment with school colors & logos creates an environment to promote school pride and encourage students to always do their best.
