D1 Sports Training Savannah: Madeline & Victoria

Iron Sharpens Iron

Holy cow guys.  I found a workout facility that is PERFECT for me.  Last night Victoria and I had the opportunity to check out the D1 Sports Training center here in Savannah, Georgia.  And I am in love.

D1 Sports Training Savannah: Madeline & Victoria

We met our new friend Zach who told us more about D1 Sports Training and their philosophy.  D1 aims to give their clients the same experience and benefits that top athletes get at Division I schools.  Their coaches are incredibly educated and are experts in their field.  D1 has programs for kids as young as 7 and goes all the way thru adulthood.  The passion that they have for fitness oozed through as Zach showed us around.


And they don’t disappoint.  The facilities had pretty much everything you could ask for in a training center.  The weight machines are custom designed for D1 and you will not find them anywhere else.  There were medicine balls galore, free weights, pylometric boxes, etc.

Before we knew it it was time for us to start our workout.  Although D1 has a TON of classes aimed at kids, there are adult programs as well.  We did a boot camp class.  Their boot camp classes are metabolic based workouts utilizing many different training modalities.  It is suitable for men and women of all fitness levels.  I can honestly say that our class had a diverse variety of individuals and everyone successfully created the workout.  A lot of it is how hard YOU push YOURSELF.  The harder you push = the greater the results.


Coach Brittany started us off with a dynamic warm-up of walking lunges, some different balance/stretch things, and a couple laps.  After that we moved on to variety of running drills on the field.  We did high knees, butt kicks, cariocas, side shuffles, straight legs, back pedals, bear crawls, and finger drags.  On top of that we added 3 100m sprints.  WHEW.  And that was only half the workout.


After getting our butts handed to us on the field we got pushed even further.  We had resistance bands strapped to our ankles and utilized weighted medicine balls as our equipment.  The workouts are very team oriented so we circled up to do the remainder of the workout.  There was a circuit of weighted exercises with side shuffles thrown in between each.  We did medicine ball slams, squats, medicine ball push-ups, overhead press, good mornings, triceps extensions, and lumberjacks.  Twice.  OUCH.

I was seriously done by the end of the workout.  According to my Polar FT40 heart rate monitor I burned 589 calories in 50 minutes.  AWESOME workout.  AND we vlogged about it 😉

If you’re in the Savannah are check it out!  If you’re not, check and see if there is a location near you HERE.  You can also connect with them on Twitter and Facebook.  Thank you D1 Sports Training for having us.  It was a blast!

  2. Madeline and Victoria,

    I saw your Tweet and blog post and wanted to comment about my own experience.

    I’ve been working in he Nashville facility for about six months and blogging and Tweeting (@d1bootcamp) about the experience for D1.

    I started from scratch after a long period of inactivity. Certainly, the boot camps are more intense than anything I’d done before. After only a couple of weeks I started to get used to the pace and difficulty of the workouts and started to find major results soon after.

    Two things have really stood out for me over the last six months: The variety of the workouts has been great. Each day I show up I don’t know what I’m going to do — and all of them wipe me out in a good way. Second, the group aspect of it has been a major asset. I thought it would be intimidating, but encouragement is in ample supply. There are more advanced people in the classes, but I find myself trying to keep pace with them as much as possible.

    Glad you had a great time in Savannah. I hope you stick with it!
