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. Camp Gladiator reflects Ally's passion for fitness in its mission, which espouses their desire "to positively impact the physical fitness and ultimately the lives of as many people as possible." During Camp Gladiator Total Transformation, participants lose weight and gain energy in a friendly, positive environment. Over four-weeks, trainers focus on accountability, competition, motivation, and fun at multiple locations. Results are tracked during fitness assessments, body composition tests, and a fitness calendar, while nutrition counseling helps to maximize those results. Click here to view before and after images.
Davidson also leads boot camps in 13 U.S. cities, with each hosting multiple training locales. The upbeat staff of certified personal 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.
During a Men’s Fitness photo shoot for the article “One-Off Workout: A Cardio Replacement Routine,” fitness model Tim McComsey lifted a barbell and held a dead-lift pose as the cameras flashed. The article explains five exercises requiring stellar form, and shows pictures of McComsey executing each one accordingly. As a National Academy of Sports Medicine–certified trainer at TRyM Fitness, McComsey demonstrates the same level of expertise while he shows how to perform lifts properly during personal-training sessions, fitness boot camps, and piano-tossing tournaments. Most of his workouts rely on a mix of plyometric, TRX training, and bodyweight exercises. To augment his clients’ results, McComsey draws upon his dietitian training to offer online meal plans.
Even at 14 years old, Landon Owens was obsessed with fitness. He eventually started Dinami Fitness Camp, using the Greek work for ?strength? to set the tone for his indoor and outdoor boot-camp sessions. The family-like atmosphere at the camp lends itself as a healthy support-system for clients, encouraging and motivating participants to meet new challenges. Landon meets one-on-one with students to figure out their goals and concerns before training begins. He builds that information into his sessions, scaling exercises to match the abilities and favorite TV station of each participant. He also mixes up his workouts every day to keep students engaged, bringing in kettle bells, suspension training equipment, and free weights to complement circuit, speed, cross-training, and agility training.
At Health Clubs of America, an athlete who hates to part with her favorite elliptical no longer has to—the clubs are open 24/7. Stocked with free weights, treadmills, and stationary bikes, the facilities complement their high-quality equipment with an array of training options. Custom one-on-one training helps clients achieve personal fitness goals, whereas 30-day boot-camp programs whip groups into shape, all while fostering a sense of community.
We are not your typical gym. We teach the CrossFit methodology, which includes basic to advanced level classes in functional exercise, athletic conditioning, plyometrics, kettlebell training, olympic weightlifting, medicine ball training, and basic gymnastics.
