Kusch’s involvement in fit20 aligns with his commitment to help others live better lives through business. He believes there is no reason fit20 can't be in every community in America in the next few years.
Kusch has founded and owned multiple businesses, including UMG Events, LLC, and American Professional Gutters. Currently, Kusch is the founder and CEO of Kinvesting, LLC, a consulting and investment firm for small businesses.
He is an Army veteran who was severely injured by an IED blast in 2012. While in college Kusch played club hockey and has earned a Team USA selection for the 2020 International Disabled Hockey World Cup. He was also named USA Hockey's 2020 Disabled Athlete of the Year.
In a press release, fit20 USA CEO Aqil Radjab said, "We are honored to have such a dynamic and compelling investor as Raymond join the fit20 USA team. He has overcome so much and is an inspiration for so many. We look forward to his insights and advice as we grow our franchise program in the U.S."
Kusch stated, "As a veteran and a disabled person, I know I need to stay fit, but finding the time and the right place is challenging. The science behind fit20 substantiates the fact that 20 minutes per week with a personal trainer has an amazing impact. I could not be more motivated to be part of an organization like fit20 that is able to help people of all ages, backgrounds, and ability levels, including veterans and those living with disabilities. This concept truly is the perfect 'fit' for anybody."
