Charlotte-area native Leonard Love, is no stranger to fitness. As a high school football player at Butler High School, he was a second-team All-Mecklenburg selection by the Charlotte Observer. He was a member of the Appalachian State team during the school’s historic upset over Michigan in 2007. In the years since graduation, Leonard’s lived all over, but he returned to the Queen City to start Gymonkee, a mobile app that uses virtual “coins” to give consumers discounted access to gyms and greater awareness of the array of fitness options available.
While they didn’t work out together, Leonard and Matt Olin did have a short, but high-intensity chat about how Charlotte is blossoming and why it’s the perfect place to pilot a startup.
