Swamp City Fitness is a Family and I am fortunate to raise my two Sons 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.
Terry Neil CF-L1, CJS&TCPFIC
In April 2022,I retired from the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office after 32 years. I began my fitness journey while I was assigned to the Sheriff’s Office training bureau. There I began coaching individuals who were beginning their law enforcement career in functional fitness. I have my Criminal Justice Standards and Training Commission Physical Fitness Instructor certification and I recently earned my CrossFit level 1 certification. I feel fitness and nutrition play an important part in people’s quality of life. I want to help people achieve their fitness goals so that they can enjoy their lives.
Strongman Coach & Competitor
I am proud to be a part of the Swamp City Fitness Family!!! I have competed in the sport of Strongman and Powerlifting at a national level for 9 years now, holding multiple state and national records.
I have worked with individuals who compete at world stages in strength sports, to beginners who have never stepped foot in the gym looking to become more confident all the way to athletes in the NFL, NBA, and NABL respectfully.
I grew up extremely overweight and worked to teach myself the science on my way to lose over 100lbs before formal education. Fighting depression, and other mental health setbacks, I found strength in training.
My promise to you as a coach is to provide the best possible service as a coach, a friend, and a supporting beam in and outside of the gym. I believe stress attacks us each day, whether that is in the gym or in our everyday life and relationships. I am simply here to provide a stress management system to help you succeed at whatever your goal is – physically, mentally, and professionally.
