Meet the Owners
Steve Kear grew up on Oahu surfing. He came to Maui over 40 forty years ago and began T&S Building Consultants and remains the owner and operator. He has been a member of the Maui Ski Team and played 5.0 level tennis. It was a tennis injury that got Steve started going the gym almost 30 years ago! He began training and body building and never left!
A true gym rat, Steve enjoys the gym atmosphere and considers going to the gym “a life style”. He designed and built The Gym Maui with his construction expertise. Together with partner Scott and Donna his wife and partner the gym has taken on what he has always strived for. A sense of family and community.
Donna Kear is a 25 year registered nurse with intensive care, emergency response, and clinical nurse educator background. She has worn many hats including having owned an underground utility business to the excitement of the scuba world and leading international scuba adventures.
Donna often teases that it may be called “The Gym Maui” but it is really “2 guys and a girl”! She takes pride in the partnership she shares with Scott and husband Steve and appreciates the diversity each of them brings to the gym.
Following a medical emergency a few years ago Donna was humbled and attributes her good health to seeing her through that time in her life. “For one person fitness could be looking great in a new pair of jeans. For me especially as a nurse it is about wellness and what a difference it can make in your life! I can celebrate that this year I will be 60! I know it is because of exercise and reaching for my own fitness goals.”
Scott Waterloo has made the gym atmosphere part of his life for over 20 years. He is a personal trainer and athlete in his own right. He enjoys a variety of sports including paddle boarding, scuba diving, and snowboarding. He is a certified scuba instructor and boat captain.
As a co- owner and operator of The Gym Maui, Scott’s vision is to support any individual wanting to achieve personal fitness. Whether you are a beginner or long time gym goer looking to raise your own bar, Scott is here to help you to achieve it.
“Our gym is about our community, our athletes, our members and those who visit Maui. We want them to feel welcome at The Gym Maui.”
