Yall, what does it take to become a household name in the fitness industry?

We asked the President of Basecamp Fitness just that.

I recently had an amazing heart-to-heart with Ben Camper, the innovative President of Base Camp Fitness. 

Spoiler alert: Their journey is awe-inspiring.

Base Camp has made a name for itself in the boutique fitness world with its unique 35-minute high-intensity interval training workout. Not only has this unique approach set them apart, but it's also driven some incredible growth.
