Mayweather Boxing + Fitness to Open Gym in Mixed-Used Development
CINCINNATI (October 28, 2021) –Cincinnati Center City Development (3CDC) has signed the first street-level commercial tenant in its recently completed 4th & Race project. Mayweather Boxing + Fitness has officially signed a lease with the non-profit developer and will move into a 2,800-square-foot street-level space on 4th Street this coming spring.
Mayweather Boxing + Fitness is a workout experience created by boxing champ Floyd Mayweather that has been taking the country by storm. It offers high-intensity non-contact boxing lessons, along with group fitness exercises led by an energetic group of hardworking instructors. The fitness studio in the new 4th & Race project will be its second location in Cincinnati, with its first location set to open in Hyde Park later this year.
With 50 locations nationwide, franchise owner Danny Calhoun and his Ohio franchise team – comprised of Patricia Domingo and Ivan Bee – are excited to be activating this area of downtown Cincinnati with their new space.
Calhoun is a Cincinnatian whose career spans more than 30 years in the boxing and fitness industry. The University of Cincinnati graduate and one-time Bearcat football player studied personal training and is a retired professional boxer, former USA boxing ranked amateur, and current boxing promotor for local and national events. It only seemed natural for him to join Mayweather’s endeavor in December 2020.
“I’m looking forward to sharing Floyd Mayweather’s legacy,” Calhoun said. “Each gym we open will create a better quality of life for each city and every member who joins us. The Cincinnati locals can count on consistently experiencing what it is like to be a part of a proven winning team.”
The Ohio Mayweather team is rounded out by Domingo, a national swimming, track and field, and volleyball athlete from Spain who found boxing while she was trying to maintain a fit and healthy lifestyle; and Ivan Bee a certified personal trainer with additional certifications that are key in the fitness industry.
Domingo, who will act as director of training and development, recently made the move to the Ohio team after having been with the California-started Mayweather Boxing + Fitness team since 2018.
“Being in this position is going to help me introduce the sport of boxing and fitness in general to women in Cincinnati,” Domingo said. “My ultimate goal, personally, is to give access to the fitness and sports world to all women and girls.”
Bee is the franchise’s vice president of operations, and is bringing a 24-year career in business to the Mayweather team.
“My career accomplishments and future goals all mirror my life calling of positively leading and changing people’s lives,” he said.
Bee said members can use not only both facilities in Cincinnati, but also any open location across the country, adding that they currently have plans to open 20 locations in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana over the next 10 years.
In addition to offering membership discounts for neighboring businesses, Mayweather Boxing + Fitness plans host wellness seminars, watch parties and corporate workouts.
“We’re here to change lives,” Domingo said.
Mayweather Boxing + Fitness will be moving into a bourgeoning business district in the southwest corner of Downtown Cincinnati along 4th Street, which is a wonderful blend of long-time businesses and new shops and retail establishments.
“Fourth Street has been reignited in recent months, and we’re happy to be a part of re-establishing the area as a destination for shopping, dining and living,” Lindzie Gunnels, senior commercial leasing officer with 3CDC, said. “This location within the 4th & Race project will add to the momentum that’s been building in the Central Business District, and we’re excited to have Mayweather Boxing + Fitness be part of that.”
For Calhoun, it was easy to situate himself within the confines of Downtown Cincinnati and the location seemed like a perfect fit for the new studio.
“I like to partner with winners and like-minded people with vision,” Calhoun said. “3CDC has been a staple of the development of Cincinnati and Floyd Mayweather and I are happy to be a part of this growth.”
3CDC was represented by Terry Ohnmeis, a Director with Cushman & Wakefield, in the deal.
The mixed-use 4th & Race development is a partnership between 3CDC and Indianapolis-based developer Flaherty & Collins. The project consisted of a 264-unit residential tower above a 584-space parking garage that opened earlier this year, and 22,000 square feet of street-level commercial space.
