Today we’d like to introduce you to Alina Gainutdinova.
Hi Alina, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I do vodabike classes already for three years. Initially, my sister started to do it. She was a fitness bikini model, but one time had a back problem and did surgery. After surgery doctor said that she can’t anymore have any workout, only swim. She has been on vacation in Italy and first time tried aqua cycling, very liked it and asked where she can study this fitness, get a license and buy bikes. That school have an education course and shop too. It was five years ago. I lived in Russia at this time, when she showed me this I decided to come here I tried it too. It was great. I’m professional sportsmen in the past and did bike too, but aqua bike it’s more interesting and helpful. I came to her, tried it, helped her with advertising and etc. Came back to Russia, packed all my stuff and went to Italy to study it too and from 2018, I here in LA helping people to burn calories and to be in a good mood.
Can you talk to us a bit about the challenges and lessons you’ve learned along the way. Looking back would you say it’s been easy or smooth in retrospect?
It was a very, very not smooth road. Every people liked it and we presented it in fitness gyms, hotels, sports centers. They liked it but said it’s too dangerous for our pool, sorry no. We were in around 50 places. And the second problem was pool, need a pool with the same level 3,5-4’ but usually people have a very deep pool. We did private offsite classes and looked for a pool for rent. Rent was so expensive (60-150$/hour), we had just six bikes.
Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your business?
