Personal Story

My name is Igor Cvetkovic, and I am a personal trainer with a passion for helping others reach their fitness goals.

I was born and raised in Serbia. I graduated from gymnasium high school and then College for Physical Education. I also received a Black Belt from the Shotokan World Karate Association.

I have always been involved in sports. I played soccer, basketball, karate and tennis. My constant involvement in different sports and trainings motivated me to work hard. It also validated my belief that every single person in this beautiful world deserves to be fit and healthy.

This was my motivation to launch Igor Zing, my fitness company. When I hold training sessions with my clients, every day is different and fun; every day there is something to learn and do better.

Business Description

Igor Zing offers personal training, group outdoor training and nutritional counseling. Our core approach focuses on strengthening the whole body to maximize fitness, ease of movement, and functionality.

We think that is the most important part of Personal Training is to “transfer knowledge from teacher to students.” For my customers who come from all over the metro DC area, my goal is to achieve long-term fitness results through varied workouts. Each class includes compound and dynamic multiple muscle group exercises, core training, functional training, cardio/ strength intervals and circuits, plyometric and martial art movements.

My current goal is to be able to expand my studio where I hold indoor workouts in the winter and during bad weather. It's a build-out that starts with submitting blueprints to the county, waiting for approval, and then beginning construction.

What is the purpose of this loan?

The loan will go towards paying an architect to complete the professional blueprints for my studio expansion. I will eventually be able to accommodate more customers for indoor group training.

Igor's loan is endorsed by Northern Virginia Family Service. The information below explains why his trustee thinks Igor is a great candidate for a Kiva Zip loan.

I met Igor after buying a Amazon Local deal to take his group exercise classes. After seeing what a hardworking business owner he is and after getting to understand his vision for his training practice, I realized he would be a perfect fit for a Kiva Zip loan!

My Amazon deal has ended for his classes, but Igor and I remain in contact via email about ways to promote and improve his business.

Igor's passion for personal training, health and fitness really shines in his practice. His eight years of experience and endless certifications and formal training allow his program to compete with other popular programs in the area.

The loan will allow Igor to speed up the expansion of his studio. First, he will invest in the blueprints with an architect for the expansion. Later, he will take out a second, larger Zip loan and combine it with his savings to complete the build-out for the expansion.
