Camp Gladiator founder Ally Davidson?s childhood obsession with the outdoors and sports led her to pursue a degree in exercise physiology. After her 2008 win on the TV show American Gladiators, Ally decided to share her love of fitness with the world at large.

Davidson also leads boot camps in 13 U.S. cities, with each hosting multiple training locales. The upbeat staff of certified trainers lead patrons of all ages and fitness levels through four-week outdoor boot camps, earning Camp Gladiator a Hot Spot title from Women's Health magazine's Fitness Awards in 2013, Best Boot Camp from Rare magazine in 2010, Best of Big D 2010?2013 from D magazine, and Best Outdoor Boot Camp 2012 from Austin Fit magazine.
An intensive four-week exercise regimen crafted by certified personal trainer Ally Davidson guarantees speedy results and sweat-addled brows for campers across the fitness spectrum. Ally’s local boot-camp staff sends muscles on a brisk march toward a firmer condition six days a week, helming total-body workouts that include interval training, plyometrics, and an abs-twisting assortment of timed strength and agility drills. The staff regularly switches up workout regimens to ensure that muscles don't become as bored as nihilists in a bounce house. Aware that not all recruits have the same motives for joining their flab-busting brigade, trainers customize their workouts to squeeze the best results from bodies of all ages and fitness abilities. The camp schedule varies based on location, with four early-morning camps to awaken muscles stuck on snooze and a pair of evening sessions to end the day on a note of high endorphins.

Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
We keep it fresh and fun.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
Lack of variety and [not incorporating] an element of fun. Being healthy should be energizing and make you feel better ... not stressed out or part of the daily grind.
When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?
I started teaching aerobics soon after high school and completely fell in love with the way working out made me feel. I got my personal training certification soon after, and have been in the health industry since then. I started taking yoga about three years ago and immediately became hooked. It is challenging physically and mentally?the best workout I have found in the 20 years I have been in the fitness industry. I believe in its benefits 100%.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
The world would be a better place if we all did a little yoga.
