Damon Davidson graduated from Sequoyah High School where he began his fitness training through competitive sports.  He quickly realized that not only were there physical health benefits, there were also mental and emotional benefits as well, and he wanted to share these with other people.  After relocating to Durango, Colorado to attend Fort Lewis College, he gained his Personal Trainer certification and began working with individuals through a local gym.  Wanting to help people get over the fear factor of traditional gym settings Damon started focusing on functional fitness training, as well as general health and nutrition.

Damon is the son of ONABEN team member Lahoma Davidson and has been exposed to entrepreneurship at a very young age, he dreams someday of owning multiple businesses.  He soon realized that his passion for fitness was a perfect segway in the world of entrepreneurship and has utilized the skills and knowledge he learned from his mom to begin to build his clientele.  Creating a pathway to the freedom of working for yourself is his main priority. 

Damon continues to work through independent gyms as well as focusing on outdoor fitness and exercise, but has struggled to create a professional image for his business.  Through assistance from ONABEN, Damon was able to create a very simple website that showcases his areas of focus as well as his own personal fitness milestones.  He feels strongly that an online presence, especially in this post-Covid environment will lead to sustained growth in his client base, as well as to allow him to branch out into other areas of expertise.

“I cannot thank the Team at ONABEN enough for the website and the technical assistance that they have given me, it is a game-changer for my small business.”-Damon

DMAK fitness is owned and operated by Damon and his wife Makayla as just one of his business enterprises, he also works independently for various contractors as well as doing professional real estate photography and videography.

Team ONABEN is especially excited to see one of our own start this journey and stays committed to helping young people like Damon get started in the world of small business.
