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.
My cousin has recommended this place to me and let me tell you, you will feel the BURN the next day! Such a friendly environment with workable schedules. If you’re ready to get healthy and get in shape, why wait?! Accountability is the key. Do you have what it takes?!? Seriously, come join us!
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 😀

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!!
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.
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!
