Business Name: Inspired Method, Inc.
Business Owner: Jared Rodriguez
“As an LA native, I was fortunate enough to be raised in a passionate sports family from the San Fernando Valley. At the age of 25, I was a handful of years into my fitness career and had the amazing opportunity to move over the hill and into the westside. Although I am from here, I wasn’t very familiar with Santa Monica and all its wonder at the time. Once I was here, I knew I wanted to build something that would inspire, create meaningful community, get results and train outside.”
Why did you decide to open a business here in Santa Monica?
“I have distinct memories of driving down San Vicente Boulevard, around Downtown Santa Monica; even down Lincoln Boulevard and seeing the most inspiring fit, motivated, and healthy individuals running and working out. I immediately fell in love with the health and fitness culture here and knew I wanted to have a major role in helping, inspiring, and affecting positive change in people’s lives. That’s when I started my Santa Monica business. After years of learning, mistake making, success creating, teaching thousands of sweaty workouts, and improving my abilities as a businessperson, I realized I was finally ready for my next step. I ended up purchasing an outdoor bootcamp business and rebranding it to the 4-Pillar System Inspired Method. Starting my coronation in 2017 was one of the hardest, yet most rewarding things I’ve ever done in my life.”
