Today we’d like to introduce you to Tanqueray Towns.
Tanqueray, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
I’m from South Central, Los Angeles; the Crenshaw District, to be exact. I grew up all throughout the Crenshaw area, however I hail from 5th Avenue and Florence. I inherited the love of the city from my experiences playing football, and running the streets as a youth. I had one thought in mind, that was perusing my education and to make it better for myself.
With that, I used football as a way out. First, through West Los Angeles Junior College where I was able to earn my AA Degree in Liberal Arts and Sciences and an opportunity to go play ball at a Division One University. When I arrived there, I started and lettered on a Power 5 Conference team in the PAC12. After earning my Bachelor’s degree in Mass Communications and my Minor in Marketing from the University of Utah, I had a brief stint of professional football and coaching. Once I decided I had given all I had to the game, I was able to sit back and realize the opportunities the game helped present to me.
I then decided to go into business with a good friend and mentor, who taught me how to run my own business and build my own brand. Which is where you all see me standing today. My passion lies in helping others achieve what they believe to be impossible by making them realize that the word impossible itself says I’M POSSIBLE.
I currently own a physically-based and an online-based gym that provides athletes and high performers from all walks of life with the opportunity to incorporate life-changing skills that will preserve their health and maximize their life in every aspect. Even after the program is complete. My soul purpose and true passion is to help empower people so that they can go out and inspire others to inspire. Although-while achieving their own greatness to win at life.
Go be great by any means necessary! Allow me to be your guide to understanding what that truly means.
Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
The road has been far from smooth. When I had turned 14 years old, I was asked to leave my mother’s house. With not much to my name and not much to carry in my hands, I grew up with a family friend I called Auntie Chris. Throughout the obstacles of homelessness and starvation, I turned to the streets and figured a way to survive. As I watched the destruction in my environment due to gangs and drugs, I vowed to finish my education and not to become a victim of my circumstances. Instead, I used it to fuel me.
Every obstacle, every short-coming, I now can sit back can say, was not a loss. But instead, it was a lesson learned.

Success to me is being able to make this world a better place through the empowerment of people. I strive to know that I’ve inspired others to inspire.
