Give Fitness Health Club is not only a great place to work out, but also a wonderful business committed to its community. Josh Donovan, owner of Give Fitness, is a local Atascadero resident with over 10 years in the fitness industry. Josh partnered with Matthew Holguin and Working to Give to open a reasonably priced state of the art gym that also has a mission to give back 50% of profits to the community. Matthew Holguin started Working to Give while completing his MBD at Azusa Pacifica University in 2005. It was his intention to create a company that was purpose driven rather than profit driven.
Give Fitness is a partner with GIVE – Working to Give which made it possible to bring a state of the art workout facility to downtown Atascadero in addition to significant financial support for the community. Matt Holguin (Working to Give) and Josh Donovan (Give Fitness) both currently live in Atascadero and are excited to bring this model of giving to their community. Matthew Holguin began Working to Give with the intention for the company to be purpose driven rather than profit driven. Learn more at www.workingtogive.com.
