Today, we have the pleasure of interviewing Kyle Thompson, CEO of K25-style, an athleisure brand that sells an array of clothing and accessories to help you look and feel good everywhere even during your workout.

I am a young entrepreneur and launched my business on April 18, 2019. I am multifaceted, owning two businesses, and have always been enterprising and interested in the business field.

All through my life, I have realized the importance of your style inside and out and have a passion for helping people get in shape and style, which lead me to create K25-style.com.
How did you get into what you do right now? Please tell us more about your journey.
As far as specifics about my journey, I created K25-style.com originally as “K25hotthreads” when I was looking online for a stylish shirt that could be worn in the gym or at school but couldn’t find any my style. I knew I had a great sense of style in the gym because I regularly got compliments. And, was asked about my style, supplements, and workout routines so, I capitalized on it. Out of my athleisure business came my nutrition business, which was introduced to me by a close friend and fellow young entrepreneur (Instagram @jasmin.tamia). She was into powerlifting and told me about these amazing supplements that I could sell too, so I became a distributor and created my website.
Who are your role models?
I have had a vast amount of role models, and an array of them have been in my family, but as far as one’s outside my family in the business field, Daymond John, Style bell, & Calvin Anderson.
