Paul Gilmer, Jr. is an entrepreneur who is driven and focused on expanding his brand to the next level. As the founder of Progress Fitness Unlimited, he has been active in the fitness industry for the past seven years. He is a certified master fitness trainer (NFPT) and certified senior fitness specialist (ISSA) and an accomplished trainer of kids through his original Kids Fit Club.

Progress Fitness Unlimited was founded in 2013. After working in the industry for other fitness companies for several years, Gilmer decided to branch out on his own. This pivotal decision gave him the opportunity to use his own ideas and bring his dreams to fruition. Progress Fitness Unlimited has a variety of signature programs. These include mobile personal training services. Whether someone prefers to train in their home, office, apartment complex or at a local gym, their dynamic team can meet their preference.

Some of the programs available include hip-hop boot camps which are designed to encompass all fitness levels. These camps give participants a total body workout that is challenging yet, effective and safe. While training hard, the boot campers listen to a mixture of old and new school hip-hop and R&B music. They also offer a senior fitness program that takes place in a group setting or one-on-one. This training meets the needs and skill level of seniors and they are able to listen to oldies while exercising. “We have partnered with several different senior communities, rehabilitation centers and rest homes. This is a program that seniors truly enjoy,” says Gilmer.

Progress Fitness also offers strength, flexibility and balance (SFB) programs and specialized training for participants with Parkinson’s disease and other coordination impediments. There is a Kids Fit Club Program that promotes fitness and athleticism among the school-aged population. In the course of fulfilling this purpose, the program aids in reducing obesity and diabetes in the targeted population. The company seeks to help fill the gap left by the loss of required PE classes in schools. They have partnered with several different schools, summer camps and after school programs throughout the Triad area.

Lastly, there is KnockerBall, an exciting and new program, which is all about fitness Fun. They are the first and premier business in the Piedmont Triad Area offering KnockerBall, which is the new energetic contact sport that’s fun, safe, and sweeping the entire nation. Anyone can rent KnockerBall sessions for birthday parties, church events, corporate events, fundraisers, team building and much more.

Gilmer says his parents have had a major impact on his life and career. “They are retired real estate entrepreneurs from whom I learned a strong work-ethic and passion for business. Secondly, my faith has and continues to impact my life because it keeps me grounded,” he says. “I love helping my clients achieve their goals and showing them how to tone their bodies, and lose weight through weight training.

Moving forward, Gilmer hopes to further expand the amount of products and services he offers and also bring continued awareness to his signature programs. “We are Progress Fitness, where ‘Progress’ and ‘Fitness’ go hand in hand,” says Gilmer.
