At age 16, Danny De Salvatore was astounded at how his body conformed to his wishes after a weightlifting regimen. What began as an effort to better his soccer playing grew into a lifelong passion—he earned a bachelor's degree in exercise science and a personal-training certification through ISSA. With credentials in hand, he worked at national gym chains throughout Columbus and taught in Rome at fitness centers during the summer. He continuously tracked observations as he met with clients, making note of which strategies led to results and which were simply fads. Soon, he was ready to open his own facility and cultivate the intimate, small-business vibe that would lead to loyal members.
Danny has gathered a team of experts to man one-on-one training sessions as well as group classes at Breathe Fitness. All of them contribute to a familial support network, making customers feel welcome by memorizing their names and tattooing their initials onto each pectoral. Tanning and nutritional wellness services round out the gym's fitness offerings for a balanced approach to physical welfare.

Alongside experienced instructors, nationally ranked heavyweight boxer Danny Calhoun not only gets students fighting fit during boxing and martial-arts courses, but helps empower them in a fun, safe, and motivating environment. Make that two environments—when The Punch House's student roster soared, Calhoun and his team opened up a second facility.
Calhoun himself teaches students the same techniques for hand speed, footwork, and cardio endurance that he uses in his own pursuit of boxing's World Heavyweight Title, but all the teachers bring their own specialties and skills to the mat. Together, their combat tutelage has drawn such professional athletes as Indianapolis Colts linebacker Tyjuan Hagler and UFC champion Rich Franklin.
