Mike Donaghy is a La Cañada Flintridge native and St. Francis High School graduate who in April celebrated the 20th anniversary of his health and fitness business, the Training Center. Donaghy answered questions from the La Cañada Valley Sun via email.
Sun: What inspired you to get into the physical fitness business?
Donaghy: I've always worked out on a regular basis since age 13. With the determination to improve myself, combined with a business background, I jumped at the opportunity to open my first gym at age 21. I started my first business, auto detailing, at age 16, and did that until I graduated from St. Francis. I always wanted to be an entrepreneur.
Q: What was your favorite sport or activity when you were growing up or attending St. Francis?
A: My favorite activity during high school was working out, but also building friendships that are still strong today.
