I had a few different sketches that were my favoritesso I took those and began to try and create them in illustrator.I used the shape building tools a lot for the 2nd and third lo-gos. For my text logo I had to convert the text to point type soI could make the s curve and underline fitness. I used the pen

    tool to trace a fist for the image logo I have on the bottom. Theshape building tool is what I used to create the dumbbell. OnceI had the basic designs made I began experimenting with differ-ent color schemes until I found ones that I liked for each logo.
