As a forty year veteran of the fitness industry, I believe I witnessed every form of misconduct that you could imagine.
I’m Dan Boronico. I started my fitness career at the age of 22 managing Diamonds Gym in Flushing New York back in 1982.
I later went to work for Bally’s health clubs, at the time they were referred to as Jack La Lanne.
After having consulted for Gold’s gym, I decided to open my own health club called Bell Plaza in Bayside N.Y. It was a 3 story facility that had close to a 30 year run.
I recently founded Athenas Fight Club for women. Athenas Fight Club is a boutique boxing facility that caters to the mind body and soul. It is located in Boca Raton Florida.
