Meet Gretchen Torres of Purefit Wellness LA

Today we’d like to introduce you to Gretchen Torres.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
I started Purefit Wellness LA with the intention to provide Corporate Wellness Programs to small and large offices in addition to providing one-on-one services to those who prefer a private setting. After managing retail businesses for over a decade, I switched my career path into the Wellness Field after falling in love with yoga.

This was when I decided to take become a certified Yoga Instructor in 2014. Since then, I have been trained in Hot Power Fusion, Yoga Sculpt (with weights) and Yin Yoga. I shortly began teaching in studios. privates and corporate wellness classes.

It was a natural progression for me to start a Corporate Wellness company as I had the first-hand experience on how stressful a corporate job can be. I would have loved nothing more than to have a weekly yoga, meditation or a workout class in the midst of the busy workweek. To allow for just one hour to de-stress while creating a team building environment.

Sometimes you just need to step away for an hour to refocus and then you are ready to take on the rest of your day. I wanted to not only share my passion for yoga and wellness but also incorporate my experience in a corporate setting to truly be able to cater wellness programs unique to the needs of the employees.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
I would say you can’t have highs without some lows. It has definitely not been a smooth road. Some struggles have been the loss of clients whether its based on budget, moving to a new area or simply the client wanting to try something new. With any business, clients will come and go. The focus is to provide service clients are happy with so they want to maintain the service long term.
