A Conversation with Damon O. Burrell, Founder of Heaven and Hell Bootcamp
What does being a black business owner mean to you?
I feel accomplished that I had a goal to help others get fit and healthy, and I am doing it. It's my passion. I love what I do, and I am very grateful and proud that I turned my dream into a reality.
What inspired you to start Heaven and Hell Bootcamp?
Obesity has been on the rise for a while, and it is important to me to offer group fitness at a price that everyone can afford. People should be able to get fit and healthy without having to pay an obscene amount of money to do it.
What makes Heaven and Hell Bootcamp stand out from the competition?
We’re focused not just on providing top-of-the-line training, but [we] make it our personal goal to help our clients attain theirs. We don’t want anyone to be intimidated by the word boot camp. Our trainers are friendly and will ensure our clients receive personalized training that meet their specific needs.
What keeps clients coming back?
The challenging workouts change every day. You get a killer workout in under 45 minutes. In and out. Pricing is very reasonable too, so that people can afford to stay fit.
Where do you hope to see your business and community in the next five years?
I hope to have multiple locations in the Chicagoland area, offering fitness to all different communities and people of all different walks of life.
Heaven and Hell Bootcamp
Anchored by owner and certified personal trainer Damon Burrell, Heaven and Hell Bootcamp's staff of workout wonks help clients conquer fitness goals in group boot-camp classes and private training sessions. With a regimen of 15 boot-camp classes lasting 40–45 minutes and held every weekday—as well as three Saturday morning sessions—Heaven and Hell keeps chests heaving, heart rates thumping, and sequined leotards shimmering at a rate that suits almost any schedule. The high-octane group workouts change each day, but typically feature agility training, calisthenics, cardio exercise, and core strengthening achieved by hoisting dumbbells, jumping rope, and stealing medicine balls from the nests of predatory birds of flight. For more individualized attention, the gym plumbs the murky depths of clients' fitness capacities to craft custom training regimens for use in private personal-training sessions.
