The World According to Armond Rashad

By Demetrius Carrington


When you see Armond it’s clear that you are looking at someone that takes pride in his appearance. His high energy coupled with his chiseled physique captivates any room that he walks in. But there's so much more to him, in a short period of time he has made Jab’s Gym Eastern Market the most visited gym in Detroit.

Besides Jabs Gym, his business empire includes real estate and soon he’ll be adding restaurateur to his portfolio.


As a proud member of Kappa Alpha Psi Incorporated, his philanthropic efforts are just as impressive. Whether he’s feeding the homeless or preaching the effects of good health you can count on him being there for the greater good.

Also, as one of Metro Detroit’s most eligible bachelors he enjoys a healthy social life.

I recently got an opportunity to speak with him at the Detroit Athletic Club where he is one of the youngest members.
