Swamp City Fitness is a Family and I am fortunate to raise my Son in this amazing environment. Here we come together to forge better versions of ourselves. Strengthening not only ourselves, but our families, and our communities through fitness and better living. We are always looking to grow our family and have a greater impact on our community but our culture is paramount to our success. Our gym strives for fun because if you are not enjoying it, you won’t do it. We create a positive environment where we learn about proper nutrition, proper form, and safety. We create a road map to our goals, learn how to set up milestones, and accountability, along with metrics to gauge our progress.
The honor of guiding this awesome gym is mine and I cherish having you as a part of it.
This gym is a sister gym to CrossFit Iron Legion, owned by my brother Ted Dreaver, and located just 30 minutes away in Ocala. Our members enjoy dual citizenship in our large family and can visit either gym. Come in or visit either location to learn more about our Coaches, our Programs, and our Family.
In 2014, I started my CrossFit journey after ending my collegiate volleyball career at the University of South Carolina. Go Gamecocks! I fell in love with CrossFit after the first workout. I can still remember it. A 12 minute EMOM of dumbbell thrusters and burpees. I nearly died. I was hooked! CrossFit has brought me so much in my life besides health and wellness. I’ve met some of my greatest friends in the CrossFit community. One thing I love about coaching CrossFit is hearing everyone’s backgrounds, stories and reasons for trying CrossFit. My second favorite thing is getting told how awful (in the best way possible) my programmed workouts are. Swamp City welcomed me with open arms from the start, and I truly feel like this gym is a family that anyone would be lucky to become a part of.
I received a bachelors degree in Exercise Science, followed by a masters in Healthcare Administration. Both at UCF. Go Knights, Charge On! Now, I am currently pursing my bachelors degree in Nursing, and I ultimately want to become Nurse Practitioner.
