Mario was kind enough to take some time to tell us about himself and his businesses.
Hi Mario, can you tell us a bit about your background before founding Life Designers and Nspire Inc?
I was born and raised in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, and I grew up with my mother, father, older sister and my younger brother. At age 15, entering my senior year of high school, my parents purchased a home, and we moved to East Stroudsburg Pennsylvania in the Poconos. There, I graduated from Stroudsburg High School and immediately enlisted with the Pennsylvania Army National Guard. During my 6 years of service with the Army, I served 15 months as a military police officer in Baghdad, Iraq, during Operation Iraqi Freedom. I returned from the war and began attending college at Lock Haven University of Pennsylvania, where I would go on to graduate and receive a Bachelor of Science in Criminal Justice & Sociology. Shortly after graduating, I began my law enforcement career as a Federal Police Officer with the Department of Defense, and I later moved to Virginia Beach, VA, to further it.
After falling on some financial hard times in Virginia, my goals and passions became focused around a desire to inspire, educate, and guide people. This led me back up north to New York City, where I began working in a luxury condominium in midtown Manhattan.
Determined to never allow anyone to go through the financial struggles that I faced, I was able to create meaningful relationships with a wide variety of successful entrepreneurs living in my building who were involved in real estate, finance, entertainment and investing, to name a few. These new associates later became my valued mentors and inspired me to delve right into business ownership. I was finally on track to helping people on their journey to living a fulfilling quality of life.

When did you found Nspire Fitness, and what are the main functions of the company?
I founded Nspire Fitness in January 2017.
Nspire Fitness is a fitness consulting company that encourages individuals to prioritize not only their physical fitness but their financial and mental fitness as well. We provide avenues to keep these three major components in order and in the best shape.
The company does this by providing resources such as meal plans, fitness regiments, and personal training to keep our clients fit and healthy.
Nspire Fitness provides financial guidance and strategies that aid in being able to provide for your personal or family needs whilst being able to conveniently afford wants.
This type of fitness is achieved in installments by first getting them familiar with the benefits and rewards of your health decisions. After that, we aid clients in adjusting to the mental, emotional, and physical changes that stem from their new fitness choices.
The overall result of our life-changing programs is the fresh outlook on life our clients record to have of their health and how it betters them and their environment in turn.
It does not end there. We also aid in business growth and development by incorporating development processes and services such as marketing, web development, EIN establishment, click funnels and landing pages. After these stages, our brand invests in your principal goals and helps you meet your company’s needs that are essential for productivity.
Has COVID impacted your services and/or the expectations or needs of your clients?
Obviously, COVID has proven to be catastrophic to the many individuals infected with the virus and their families. Not to mention what a nightmare it has been on the global economy.
For my businesses, it has turned out to be a blessing in disguise. Now more than ever, people are more in tune with their finances and their overall quality of life. It was almost as if COVID was a giant reset button and wakeup call that now has individuals looking to restructure what they thought was stable and secure.
This is where my businesses flourish. We implement the resources needed to avoid such a catastrophe and live the quality of life individuals desire under no one else’s control.
