In this interview, we talk to Dre Dee of Darkside Fitness about her experience owning a studio, building it from the ground up, and the struggles of owning your own business.

We also discuss several relief options that are open to studio owners, including grants that can help them pay expenses – such as payroll – while they are closed, as well as personal safety during the pandemic.
