New boxing gym in Antioch to hold Grand Opening, Saturday

Thursday, May 8th, 2014

Family‐Friendly Gym Aims to Become a Positive Presence in the Community

Double Trouble Boxing (DTB), an Antioch-based boxing gym welcoming members of all fitness levels, will hold its official grand opening event on Saturday, May 10, 2014 at 1908 A Street in Antioch, CA beginning at Noon. The free, family‐friendly affair will offer food and giveaways from local sponsors such as Celia’s, Costco, Juarez and Subway; a bounce house and other treats for kids; and a waived enrollment fee for new members who sign up during the event.

We are thrilled to be hosting our supporters and the community at our grand opening on May 10,” said Michael Alexander, co‐owner of DTB. “Sharing our love of the sport of boxing as well as helping people achieve their health and fitness goals are passions of ours, and the event is our opportunity to showcase these passions as well as our first‐class facility and staff members.”

Boasting a custom‐built boxing ring and state‐of‐the‐art sound system, the 2,119 sq. ft. gym also features a wide variety of weight training and cardiovascular equipment, including free weights, treadmills, elliptical trainers and stationary bicycles. Classes offered at DTB were designed with athletes of all skill sets in mind, ranging from cardio and technical boxing to cycling and kids’ boxing. Personal training with DTB’s certified fitness instructors is also available.

DTB is located in the heart of downtown Antioch’s business district, a move which Daniel Castillo, co‐owner of DTB, says was strategic. “A large part of the reason we chose downtown Antioch for our gym was that we have deep ties to the community,” said Castillo. “Both Mike and I attended school in Antioch, so the city will always feel like home to us. In addition to helping revitalize the area’s economy, we wanted to provide the city’s youth a place where they could come and participate in a positive after‐school activity,” he said, referencing the large number of elementary and high school‐aged children that are members of the gym.

Despite its relative newness, DTB and its staff members are already an active presence in the Antioch and East Contra Costa County communities. The gym recently sponsored and hosted special training classes for young, African American males in conjunction with a local mentoring and advocacy program, and DTB’s staff members participated in a volunteer cleanup day for the City of Antioch. Additionally, both Alexander and Castillo are frequent attendees and presenters before the Antioch City Council. The DTB owners say that they look forward to seeking out, participating in and supporting other community‐oriented initiatives in the future.

About Michael Alexander:

Michael Alexander is the co‐founder and co‐owner of DTB and also serves as a trainer and instructor at the gym. An Antioch native, Alexander became a professional boxer in 2007 after serving in, and boxing for, the United States Marine Corps for four years. He received his degree in kinesiology with a concentration in human performance analysis from San Francisco State University.

About Daniel Castillo:

DTB co‐founder and co‐owner Daniel Castillo is also a trainer and instructor for the facility. He graduated from Pittsburg High School in 1999 and became a professional boxer in 2006 after several years of Golden Gloves fights under his belt as well as professional appearances on HBO, Showtime and Spike TV networks. Castillo is a professional sparring partner to many of the fighting industry’s elite athletes, including UFC stars Nick and Nate Diaz.

Givans Taekwondo has been serving the youth and adults of Antioch for over 10 years and has expanded their program over that time

Now, owner, and martial arts Master Instructor, Ed Givans, has expanded their programs, once again, to add after school homework assistance, as well.

Our goal is to help kids and to provide them with great programs,” Givans said. “In order to better accomplish that, we have opened our new after school program.”

Givans photo 300x225 Antiochs Givans Taekwondo expands with after school Learning CenterThey have homework stations for students to do their after school work, an entertainment center, computers and more.

Because Antioch is a commuter city, they provide extended hours until 8 pm for pick-up so for parents who work outside the area.

Givans offers the first program with Olympic Taekwondo and an after school program. Taekwondo is the only Martial arts in the Olympic Games. Our program goes beyond just kicking and punching.

At Givans Taekwondo and Learning Center children and adults can learn martial arts, respect and discipline, and improve their education, all in one place. Please visit their new learning center at 4851 Lone Tree Way, Suite A1 (behind Uno Chicago Grill), call 925 777-0227 or visit their website at www.givanstkd.com.
