The 25-year-old Marine Corps veteran co-founded personal training studio Trainerspace with two other U.S. military vets. Skees serves as director of business development for the business.

His partners are Cary Reichbach and Chris Brown. Skees completed the Veterans Florida Entrepreneurship Program in 2016.

"I'm proud to recognize Logan with the Young Entrepreneur Award today for his hard work to grow Trainerspace," Gov. Rick Scott said. "I would also like to thank him for his service in the military. Florida is one of the best states in the nation for veterans, and we'll keep working to ensure our brave service members like Logan have every opportunity to succeed in our state."

Skees said that he was "beyond grateful" for the recognition.

"Empowering our clients at Trainerspace to reach more of their full potential through both safe and effective personal training is an absolute privilege," he said.
