Doug graduated Kent State University. A competitive gymnast through college, he entered into the fitness industry as a means of maintaining an active lifestyle. Combining his education and degree in Business Administration and Marketing with his sports background, Doug forged a career of close to 30 years managing several large, multi-purpose, family, athletic clubs, as well as opening several facilities from the ground up.
Following the most recent facility closing due to the ‘fall-out’ of COVID, he opened SimplyFit with the objective of creating a fitness community for people who are looking to ‘just keep moving’. From strength training to yoga, bootcamp to balance and weights, SimplyFit provides activities for all ages and fitness levels. Doug spent the majority of his youth focused on movement for athletics, and now is focused on helping others improve their movement to feel better.
