Altabanking Podcast Ep. 11 — Recession Tips from a Veteran-Owned Business in Utah


Feb 27 2023 • 1 hr 2 mins

Starting a business during uncertain financial times can be a challenge. Kenny Knight, who opened his business, Rage Fitness, on the eve of the recession in 2008, knows that all too well. Still, even in a recession, and later, a pandemic, Kenny has found ways to keep challenging himself and growing his businesses, even as the possibility of another recession looms ahead.

Kenny credits the discipline he learned in the Marines, as well as the obstacles he’s faced as a Black business owner for the success he’s had at Rage Fitness and in his other business ventures. Rage Fitness has built a reputation as a no-nonsense training center, but at the end of the day, it’s “still love” as Kenny explains to Altabanking host Stan Sorenson, Altabank’s SVP & Chief Marketing Officer.

With high energy and a passion for self-improvement and helping others on their personal journeys, Kenny describes how he’s grown his business after his days in the military and another career as a truck driver.
