While still with the Celtics, Doo and Optimal Fitness joined forces with various businesses in the greater Boston area to manage their corporate wellness facilities and create programming for the various companies’ employees. The first site that Doo was tasked to manage was Bain Capital, which is located in downtown Boston, and Optimal Fitness has maintained the role to this day.
