A national faith-based fitness organization has set up camp in Carrollton. Camp Gladiator has been in business for almost 11 years and has partnered with thousands of churches, schools, businesses and cities to provide over 4,500 locations in 16 cities, soon to be 17, across the nation. They thrive on building partnerships with churches, schools, and any other business in the local community willing to help with their mission, which is “to positively impact the physical fitness and ultimately the lives of as many people as possible.” They turn parking lots, fields, and outdoor amphitheatres into socially distanced workout spaces.
According to Leslie Cowart, Partner Trainer with Camp Gladiator, “We focus on building a community/relationship with everyone that joins Camp Gladiator and have options for all fitness levels to participate (Don’t let the name scare you). So many people are still very hesitant about going back to the gym or have never liked the gym period, and we at Camp Gladiator like to provide a community for people to be comfortable in so that they may reach their fitness goals, especially during a pandemic like the one we are in now.”
Camp Gladiator has partnered with Tabernacle Baptist Church in Carrollton to provide an outdoor location for workouts on Mondays and Wednesdays at 9:00 am and 6:00 pm, and Fridays at 9:00 am only. There are also virtual workouts available from 5:00 am to 10:00 pm, with a live workout starting every 15 to 20 minutes.
If you’re interested in learning more about them or trying the program, they have a free pop-up workout coming to the Carrollton AMP on Saturday, September 12, at 11:00 a.m.
