Who is Donavon?

Founder / Master Fitness Trainer for Group4 Fitness Systems

This Desert Storm War veteran moves beyond simple encouragement to deliver a hard-core military style of motivation, pushing you to reach your full potential.


He is a Nationally Certified Personal Trainer who got his start more than 18 years ago as a Master Fitness Instructor for the US Military. Since that time he has worked with many different types of clients, foregoing specializing in one group of people for the varied experiences that a diverse client base can bring.


**Dr. Donavon Huff has been awarded the City of Cleveland Mayor Frank Jackson Recognition Award!


While Donavon's achievements included training active duty men and women that were in complete wellness and or disabled. Through training he met along the way some of the most responsive defense teams that help to protect and aid in supporting these men and women: Paratroopers, Army Rangers, Special Forces units, Air force Officers, Non- Commissioned Officers, Correction Officers, Police Officers, Fire Fighters and their wives and extended families. Receiving from many of them the highest forms of recommendations and new client referrals along the way—perhaps his greatest contribution to the fitness world to date is his ability to bring his fitness knowledge and training to anyone willing to change their life. Recognizing the opportunity for everybody to benefit from this style of training, Donavon founded Group4 Fitness Systems.


For 18 years now, Donavon's focus has been on diversifying his fitness programs, so that they cater to all levels of fitness, body types and sizes. His time spent in rehabilitation has taught him the importance of having a flexible approach to fitness—one that can be disciplined and hard core, or encouraging and motivational, as needed.
