A Fitness Series – The One that Has it All
Camp Tampa is a boutique gym located in South Tampa that offers a variety of classes from circuit to yoga. The gym consists of three buildings each housing their speciality. There’s Yoga, Cycle/Circuit and Stations/Hit. I decided to give their HIIT classes a try after two of my friends started teaching there. Shoutout to my homies/workout queens, Anna & Alyssa, for putting me on!
Now what is HIIT? HIIT or High Intense Interval Training involves bringing your heart rate in and out of the fat burning zone. It is one of the most effective types of training when it comes to burning calories and Camp offers an entire studio dedicated to this type of training – which is pretty dope.
First impressions are important and Camp did not disappoint. Their website is clean, fun and super easy to use. I was able to create an account and schedule my first class in under 10 minutes. The hardest part was picking which class to try first. Their schedule is LOADED with so many choices.
Variety is the spice of lifeWilliam Cowper, “The Task” 1785
The first class I tried was Ass & Abs with Anna. Man did she make me WORK. Her playlist was top notch and every exercise made my muscles pop! The best part is everyone is going at their own pace. You put in the work to see the results you desire and that’s exactly what I need at this point in my fitness journey. Since that initial class, I’ve also taken Anna’s Hot Arms & Abs and Hot Full Body. All the classes mentioned are 50 minutes long and consists of a warm-up, 3 blocks of exercises and core work to finish. What’s great about these classes is they are always different and each instructor brings their knowledge and flair. You get to use equipment as well such as weights, bands, TRX straps and blocks.
Not only do they offer variety with their classes, they also offer different ways you can enjoy classes at Camp. There are several class packs you can purchase if you don’t want to commit monthly or you can go unlimited. Guys, they even have an intro offer for your first month. Class packs range from 5-30 classes and priced between $90 to upwards of $395. Their unlimited starts at $99 for your first month and then goes to $159. Now I know these prices ain’t cheap but I did mention this was a boutique. I do find their prices to be worth the money 100% for $159 I can take cycle, yoga, hit and more? The gif says it all. Most of the high end gyms around here are at that price or more and offer one type of class. Case closed on value.
Final Thoughts: Camp Tampa offers so much flexibility. You can really tailor the experience to fit to your schedule and budget which is why it 100% gets my pick for Best Workout in Tampa. Happy Camper over here!
