I wrote my last review of Soldierfit’s Frederick location several years ago, so I thought it’s time to submit another one. The best thing is, I’m still a troop and loving it more than ever. I’ve never been a joiner, and I generally dislike the anonymity of your run-of-the-mill gym with its gleaming machines that I mainly don’t know how to use. So that never stuck. Soldierfit stuck for going on seven years now and for so many reasons. I love the bootcamps, they’re always fun, always different, never boring. I love the people — the ones that teach bootcamp and the fellow troops. Such a nice bunch. So much so, that I’ll show up a little early every time just to chat. I love that there are all body types. There’s a wonderful diversity. And everyone is so encouraging and supportive. Yes, it’s a workout and it’s sweaty and as challenging as you want it to be, but to me these days, it’s pure and simple fun. There’s a huge feeling of belonging and having found a happy place. It’s family. If you’re looking for a place (sappiness alert!) “where they always know your name and they’re always glad you came” and all with a killer workout any time it fits your schedule, Soldierfit is for you.
