Arena Member Dillon Levy discussed his journey with us and how the atmosphere we have cultivated amongst our members has greatly benefitted his life. Lots of places can teach you techniques, but the culture of the gym really decides what kind of people feel comfortable.


Dillon Levy:
I’ve been a member of The Arena since, I think 2016. Me and a good friend came here, started training. We were doing boxing, but then I kind of slowly transitioned over here to mainly the Fight Built class with Jay. Recently, I’ve kind of come to discover just a lot of the benefits being a member has brought to me, the discipline, the mental toughness, and it’s translated to my life outside of the gym.


I work in mental health and that’s sort of a profession where you kind of need to have discipline and kind of resilience and the ability to stay motivated. So I’ve really appreciated a lot of the stuff that this gym has cultivated for me. It’s a really friendly environment. There’s no egos here. Everyone’s here to get better. That’s really honestly what I’ve loved about this gym more than anything else is how friendly everyone is. If you come in here with the right attitude and the willingness to be humbled and learn, you’ll get a lot from it.
