After less than one year in business, Donte’s Boxing Gym (DBG) in Derwood has recently completed an expansion. The gym has doubled in size to accommodate its rapidly growing membership.
When Donte Brown opened the doors of Donte’s Boxing Gym on April 30, 2011, he envisioned a place where people could learn the fundamentals of boxing, get a full body workout and become part of a family he likes to refer to as DBG Nation. A seasoned member of the health and fitness community, Brown, a certified personal trainer and fitness instructor, realized his dream of owning his own gym and it has proven to be a great success.
The new section provides 1,500 additional square feet of space, doubling the size of the current gym. The expansion will allow space for a workout area with free weights, additional room for group classes and even an office for Brown. Since the start of the year, membership has flourished with at least one new client signing up each business day. “I’m looking forward to the continued growth of DBG Nation and I’m excited to see where we’ll go from here. The sky is the limit,” says Brown.
Brown, along with current members of DBG Nation, are excited about the growing popularity of the gym. "I love the sense of community at DBG. Rarely do you find a gym where everyone wants to learn, work hard and help each other, but I definitely see that here. For the first time in my life, I actually look forward to coming to the gym and working out. It's not hard for me to stay motivated because I'm always around such goal-oriented people," says DBG member Merissa Dyer.
