The Capacity Fitness & Nutrition Story

Hugh Green & Gabi Venuto

I found my passion for fitness in high school playing football, basketball, and baseball.  Right away, I loved that lifting weights and working out made doing the sports I wanted to much more enjoyable! I was hooked and continued my love for sports into college with football.  My passion for health and fitness continued through my transition from college athletics to the corporate world, as I found myself spending an hour or more at the gym after work every evening.

Eventually, as many do, I found functional fitness and fell in love.  I couldn’t get enough of the variety of new movements and the challenge to get a little bit better each day I worked out! Functional fitness became a part of my life in 2011 and I began coaching and competing in 2015.  Through my love for fitness I met a beautiful young woman named Gabi who had come to Baltimore for nursing school in 2019. We instantly hit it off and began training together every day at the gym!

Now, one of our favorite things (aside from working out together) is to go on hikes to relax and talk through what we want to be when we grow up.  In the Spring of 2020, we were on one such hike and Gabi turned to me and asked if I wanted to start a gym together.  I quickly replied with, “Absolutely!”  We started that week (May, 2020) with outdoor classes in our apartment building’s parking lot, eventually finding our way to Locust Point in July of 2020.

The past two years have been filled with pride as we watch our members grow as we do everything we can to help the most people through improving their health and fitness each and every day.  We get to live our dream and are grateful for the opportunity to let others live theirs, too!
