In celebration of Small Business Saturday, we’ve partnered with Comcast to highlight a handful of the 100 small businesses owned by people of color in Harris and Fort Bend County and are each receiving $10,000 grants from the Comcast RISE Investment Fund.

Intensity Fitness

Founded by Sid Karim in 2017, Intensity Fitness offers group, corporate, and personal training, plus many related fitness and health services. “We change lifestyles by way of health and fitness,” said Karim.

He started Intensity Fitness to make achieving good health and fitness both affordable and achievable for everyone.

We checked in with Karim, who shared some of his thoughts about his business, Small Business Saturday, and Houston.

On being an entrepreneur and small business owner in Houston…

“It means that I get to show that Houston is full of opportunity, no matter your race, creed, sex, or religion.”

On his favorite part of owning his own business…

“I absolutely love helping my clients achieve results and it makes me proud to see them progress.”

On Small Business Saturday…

“Small Business Saturdays is a chance and opportunity to support people are just like you and me.”

On Houston…

“Houston means home. Houston means opportunity. Houston means a chance to make something out of yourself!”
