Full Circle Fitness has closed its doors at 2515 East Coast Highway.
“I get phone calls every day, people saying they are sorry we’re gone,” said owner David-Dorian Ross. “But it’s kind of a positive thing. This is going to be better for me.”
The gym closed on July 1, Ross said.
Ross is continuing to work with clients, and other members of his staff also will continue their client work. Ross also has been lecturing throughout the country, has written a book and is working on a deal for a PBS special.
“The thing about the store from is it began to limit what I was doing well,” Ross said in an interview. “It was preventing me from doing things I wanted to do. This is better for my place in the future.”
According to his website, Ross is a seven-time U.S. medalist and three-time world medalist in the martial art of T’ai Chi Ch’uan, or Ultimate Harmony Boxing.
“He is the creator of best-selling videos and the author of numerous books and articles on T’ai Chi and holistic health, as well as a kinesiologist, lifecoach, speaker, celebrity trainer and expert in the conventional fitness and wellness industry,” the website states.
His newest book, “The Tai Chi Companion,” includes video, audio, graphics and more, Ross said.
Full Circle Fitness originally was located in the former I Heart Puppies and current Delanowear space at 2801 East Coast Highway before moving in early 2011; read our story here.
