Camp Gladiator–A Different Way to Workout!

Last week I had the awesome opportunity to try something new, Camp Gladiator!

According to their website:

“Camp Gladiator is not limited by a title: gym, club, camp — the only word that does justice to what we are is a movement! Camp Gladiator Camp Gladiatoris a wave of positive energy that sweeps through a community, causing people to connect to who they were meant to be. We believe you are meant to run, jump, crawl, sweat, compete and believe! Camp Gladiator is a refuge to be around other like-minded individuals, working together to accomplish something for yourself and be challenged from within.”

After my very first experience with Camp Gladiator, I can tell you that everything they say is true.  I was personally welcomed by the trainer for the location that I attended, Mike.  He was energetic (even early in the morning!) and personable.  I was really impressed by the way that everyone was spoken to by their first names, even me.

We started out our workout with an Olympic themed bean bag toss game that resulted in different workouts depending on where the bean bag landed.  The classmates were really good about cheering each other on and supporting each other.

When we finished that, we worked our way over to our mats for a squat challenge followed by a partner activity to round out the class.  My partner (Jenny, who was also super nice to the new kid) and I were responsible for completing up to 6 sets of 6 different workouts focusing on different target areas.  The activity built in team work and community because there wasn’t one exercise that we could have done without each other.  It was nice to have that motivation because I felt like part of the group and I wasn’t as quick to cheat.  Just keeping it real.  🙂

Even after the class, I continued to be inspired by the community that had been developed within this group.  Just since the class I have seen pictures posted on Facebook as well as featured campers and inspirational pictures and quotes.  I totally feel like I got an amazing workout (I was s.o.r.e. the next day for sure!) as well as a nice sense of community and accomplishment.

Overall, I felt that it was a success.  I feel that this class would be beneficial to all ability levels and different stages of “gladiators”.  They have locations and times all over the Tampa Bay area.  In fact, the Tampa Bay Area has a large number of CG Trainers, so finding a time and place shouldn’t be too hard at all!
