Welcome to Blackburn Fitness and Training
Boot Camp Fitness and Training is now Blackburn Fitness and Training, an identity that reflects our experience and expertise as the best fitness community in Tallahassee.
When our founder, Laurel Blackburn, started her gym in 2005, there was no other boot camp in Tallahassee and no other place where kettlebells were fully integrated into workouts. Our gym has stood the test of time, thanks to the quality of our trainers and to a dedicated community of clients.
As we approach 15 years in business, it is the perfect time to launch a brand that will tell our story for years to come. Our new brand reflects what all of our clients know: that we welcome and support everyone, whether you’re an experienced athlete or a beginner.
Here’s what’s changing: We will have a focus on personal training, available one-on-one, or in a small-class setting. We’re also welcoming another Blackburn to the team, Laurel’s son, Nigel, a certified trainer and World Champion athlete in grip sports. Nigel has been a familiar face at the gym as a trainer; he’s now running Blackburn Fitness and Training with his mom.
Here’s what will never change: We’re not just another gym; we’re a family. Our clients become close friends, and many of them have been with us since the beginning. We keep class sizes small to provide personal attention. Our certified trainers are experts in proper technique, which protects you against injury.
Hard-core athletes and beginners alike will find our workouts challenging. We will push you to pick up that heavier weight or run a little faster, but we’re happy to provide modifications for beginners.
We don’t believe in age limits. Health and fitness are attainable for everyone. We all take our own path to fitness, and no one has to sit on the sidelines.
We’re excited about the future of our business and helping you achieve your fitness goals.
