About Grovert

I am the Founder and CEO of Fit Lifestyle Box, a monthly subscription box for men and women in the fitness industry. Before this, I served in the Air Force for 6 years as a combat photographer before I was injured and medically retired.

Today, I am an MBA student, the owner of Fit Lifestyle Box, and one driven individual. I am a student of business and I say that because I'm a sponge learning anything and everything by doing.
