The Health and Well-Being of our CG Community
We’re taking it (back) outside at many of our locations! During this transition, Camp Gladiator remains focused on the health and safety of our Campers and Trainers. We are carefully monitoring city and state policies as we begin our return to in-person Camps and are diligently updating protocols and practices to best serve our community.
In-Person Camp Procedures:
Across all of our open locations, CG is committed to the following safety measures:
- Mats will be placed 10 feet apart during the workout so that Campers and Trainers will maintain social distance at all times.
- Campers are encouraged to bring and use their own mat and dumbbells
- If Campers choose to use shared equipment provided by the Trainer, hand sanitizer must be used before and after each use
- Download the CG App and bring your phone to each workout so you can use it to check in
- Celebrate and motivate with encouraging words, but avoid all physical contact. Air-fives all day!
- Trainers will be aware of specific requirements suggested and/or required by the CDC and each State/County/City Government.
- Please do not come to Camp if you do not feel well, or have had contact with an individual who has tested positive for COVID-19 or may have COVID-19. Check your symptoms with the CDC here.
- If you are “at-risk” due to age or pre-conditions, seek medical advice
*Camper minimum may vary based on certain government regulations. Talk to your Trainer directly for location-specific requirements.
If you are an active BOLD Camper, you still have the opportunity to get in a great CG workout using our virtual workout program! Even as we are able to transition our workouts back outside, some Campers may want or need to stay home. Therefore, virtual locations will still be accessible through the CG App or through the Virtual Workout Schedule. Good news: our virtual workouts are here to stay!
Outdoor location reopenings will be handled with mindfulness for our community. During this transition, we fully believe that whether online or outside, we will continue to be #BetterTogether.

Learn to Measure Your Heart Rate for Optimal Performance
In this day and age, most of us walk around with fitness watches, like a FitBit or an Apple watch. These awesome gadgets track our heart rate (HR) and are great tools to track your intensity during a workout. When we workout our HR spikes into different HR zones. Each of these zones are beneficial in different ways and can be lined up perfectly with the CG 4 week cycle.Read More
The benefits and misconceptions of strength training
The benefits of strength training are numerous and provide an overall improvement to functional movements in everyday life. From a medical health standpoint, strength training helps to decrease mortality rate, reduces the risk of injuries, and reduces the risk of developing osteoporosis (condition where bones become fragile and brittle) and sarcopenia (the degenerative loss of skeletal muscle mass). From a physical health standpoint, strength training can increase lean body mass, slightly raise metabolic rate, improve movement control, and even cognitive abilities.Read More
