Trainers lead intense but fun one-hour boot camps that demonstrate results with regular body measurements. Sessions alternately focus on strength training or core, abs, and cardio, tapping into a wide range of exercises, from pulling weighted sleds across the gym’s indoor turf to traditional drills such as dumbbell chest presses and jumping exercises. The trainers also provide campers with nutritional guidance to help boost their success. See the boot-camp schedule.<p>
As a personal trainer for a big gym, Drew deVry grew disenchanted by the hundreds of dollars he was asking people to spend on training each month. He knew that the costs were prohibitive for so many people, and so he struck out on his own and opened Freedom Fitness.
With more than a decade of training experience and a certification from the American College of Sports Medicine to guide him, Drew developed hundreds of exercise routines for people of every ability level. When members walk in the door, he and his staff pick out a workout based on their goals and restrictive issues before helping them get acclimated to the equipment. Routines make use of equipment such as free weights, cable machines, and a full lineup of cardio equipment, including the gym’s treadmills, elliptical machines, recumbent bikes, and StairMasters.
In addition to penning a plentitude of workout plans over the years, Drew—a certified nutritionist—has also authored a variety of nutrition plans. He and his staff pick one to suit each member, usually starting off aggressively to trigger an encouraging round of fat loss, then tapering into a sustainable plan for lifelong health. He eschews reliance on supplements in favor of tapping into the nutrition in everyday foods, hoping to inspire a "love affair" with fruits and vegetables that makes visits to the produce section exciting.
