Our Humble Heroes


After hav­ing my kids, it became a strug­gle to lose my weight. At my biggest, I was 220 lbs. I love how this place has a nutri­tion­ist who can help you with the diet. I had a wed­ding com­ing and was des­per­ate to have that look in my dress that I always imag­ined. I start­ed to diet and exer­cise. I dropped the weight for my wed­ding. I got down to a com­fort­able weight. After my wed­ding, I could not keep the weight off. My weight loss was short lived until I worked with Don at DZ Boot­Camp. Don helped me reach a goal I thought I could nev­er get too. Don worked with me to trans­form my body com­plete­ly dif­fer­ent from what I did on my own the first time around. I was that per­son who was against using weights, but with Don’s help, I now have mus­cle def­i­n­i­tion. Don helped me make results, not excus­es!


I have been try­ing to lose pounds for many years. I tried a lot of diet and exer­cise. Some­times I man­aged to lose weight but not for long. A friend rec­om­mend­ed me a DZ Boot­Camp. I signed up imme­di­ate­ly, and it was the best deci­sion. Every work­out is dif­fer­ent… I train six times a week and nev­er get bored. I learned to count calo­ries and eat health­ily. I have a lot of sup­port and moti­va­tion from expe­ri­enced train­ers. I rec­om­mend this place to all who wants to be healthy and exer­cise in a friend­ly atmos­phere, with peo­ple who have the same goals. I nev­er imag­ined that just one class will change my life for­ev­er!

DZ Boot­Camp and nutri­tion has been great for me! I love the coach­es there. The boot camp is new for me and a great work out! They real­ly pos­i­tive­ly push you. They are very knowl­edge­able about nutri­tion and the meal plans they offer, as well. Which is great because just because you work out does not mean you can eat any­thing! The 80/20 rule is great! Don will not dis­ap­point you as long as you put your best in it; he will help you suc­ceed in get­ting fit and healthy what­ev­er your goals may be!


I first start­ed my weight-loss jour­ney in Jan­u­ary 2018. I had tried and failed often, but this time felt like I final­ly had the right mind­set as well as the moti­va­tion. I began going to a chain health club but soon after became bored and felt like I was not los­ing any weight because I was not being chal­lenged. A friend of mine told me about DZ Boot­Camp, they told me to go to a class with her and so I did! Since then, I have been going at least twice a week! The work­outs real­ly make you sweat, and I am often sore, which I love because to me it shows that I am work­ing things out that I was miss­ing before!

Every­one at DZ Boot­Camp, includ­ing oth­er mem­bers, are so warm and wel­com­ing and I’ve always felt so com­fort­able. Don and the oth­er train­ers give you the right amount of push and sup­port and are still there to answer any ques­tions you may have. I am down 25 lbs as of today, and I feel like I owe a lot of my progress to DZ Boot­Camp! We all cheer each oth­er on, and I am hap­py to be a part of this tight-knit fit­ness com­mu­ni­ty! I’ve nev­er been that per­son who looks for­ward to work­ing out, but now I am thanks to DZ Boot­Camp!


For years I have tried to find some sort of “want” to work­out and make a change for the bet­ter. This place has def­i­nite­ly changed my life! Don has been such a huge part in my tran­si­tion to a bet­ter and health­i­er lifestyle, and I couldn’t thank him enough for all that he does for our DZ TEAM!! Thank you DZ Boot­Camp for kick­ing my butt every time and nev­er dis­ap­point­ing!


I love this place and the coach­es. They even help with your diet.

After being a part of many gyms I knew that I need­ed some­thing dif­fer­ent, that’s when we stum­bled across Ion Boot­Camp. I loved it so much. I intro­duced my hus­band to it. DZ Boot­Camp has changed my family’s life. I need­ed exer­cise in my life but wasn’t will­ing to take time away from my fam­i­ly. We work­out togeth­er dur­ing our lunch break, and it works out great. We have so much more ener­gy to spend on our mar­riage and chil­dren. My hus­band and I found some­thing we both enjoy. We have learned to chal­lenge our­selves and set dai­ly goals at the box, home, and our work­place.

My jour­ney with DZ Boot­Camp began in March of 2016. It has been an amaz­ing adven­ture that has not only made me phys­i­cal­ly stronger, but an all-around bet­ter per­son. Not only did I find DZ Boot­Camp, but I also found a community/family. I have lost 60 lbs and dropped sev­er­al sizes in my pants. I have tru­ly dis­cov­ered my pas­sion. I have learned to fail with­out being a fail­ure. The coach­es are the best ever. They have the patience of an angel and nev­er los­es faith in your abil­i­ty to reach the unachiev­able. They push you to run faster, lift heav­ier, and always do one more, all with the best and safest form pos­si­ble. Every­thing I’ve learned at Ion Boot­Camp has changed my life for­ev­er.

  • 5 star review  This place is amaz­ing. Don is a great guy who goes above and beyond for his clients. Theres peo­ple like me who aren’t great at this fit­ness stuff but DZ is very infor­ma­tive and sup­port­ive. The encour­age, they push and I believe they tru­ly strive to help clients achieve their best. If you’re seri­ous about chang­ing your life, this is a one stop shop. I promise 😀

  • 5 star review  Don is incred­i­bly knowl­edge­able and he’s pro­cured a ded­i­cat­ed team of experts who are focused on ensur­ing clients reach their fit­ness goals. It’s a non-intim­i­dat­ing atmos­phere yet inspir­ing when you see how many peo­ple have done and con­tin­ue to do so well. (And look good!) Fol­low­ing his pro­gram is guar­an­teed to jump­start weight loss, give u mus­cle tone, and improve car­dio­vas­cu­lar health if you’re seri­ous and fol­low his instruc­tion! Love it!!

  • 5 star review  As a wife and full time work­ing mom this was the best place for me. Don has pro­grams to fit all sched­ules. I start­ed with Don in the Sum­mer of 2019. I was look­ing for a Nutri­tion­ist that would cus­tomize a plan that was best for my body and I want­ed it to be all remote and afford­able, because I had no time to go to a gym. I sent him all my mea­sure­ments, pic­tures and goals. He put togeth­er a 90 day Keto pro­gram that we adjust­ed as need­ed based on how my body react­ed to cer­tain foods. He coached me via, phone, text and email. I swear he nev­er sleeps because no mat­ter what time I con­tact­ed him, he was there to sup­port me and guide me. I lost 12lbs of fat in 90 days. I took a break for the hol­i­days and start­ed back up with him in Jan 2020. I have lost a total of 16lbs and am now work­ing on mus­cle build­ing. Being a women, I enjoyed know­ing that he has a stu­dio with class­es by amaz­ing train­ers which made me feel at ease when it comes to safe­ty. Don’s flex­i­ble pro­gram allows me to work on my health and fit­ness, while still work­ing full time and tak­ing care of 2 tod­dlers and a hus­band.

  • 5 star review  I had a mem­ber­ship at a local park dis­trict gym. After being there for a year, I was dis­ap­point­ed with the lack of results and the lack of assis­tance from the staff. I dis­cov­ered DZ Boot­Camp by acci­dent while going to the post office. I joined in Novem­ber and I was feel­ing hap­py with the work­out. Unfor­tu­nate­ly just before thanks­giv­ing I had an acci­dent and my wrist was bro­ken. I was out for a month and a half. Once I was giv­en the all clear, I went back. Because of the injury I’ve had to restrict some of the activ­i­ties. DZ Boot­Camp has been great on mod­i­fy­ing my exer­cis­es so that I can still work­out and build my strength while my wrist still heals. Don has been great! He’s lis­tens and under­stands how to best help you to reach your goals. I real­ly enjoy going there!
