An Early Dream Came to Fruition
Born and raised in Missouri but now rooted in Nashville, Michael Chandler dreamed that he was destined for more than just being a two-time MMA world champion. Realizing that his passion was to provide for others more than himself, Michael wanted to take the next step and open a fitness facility meant for everyone. This is a dream he held close to his heart since his teenage years after opening up to his father about opening a gym, in which his father, Michael Chandler, Sr., promised to build for him when, not if, the time came. Well, the time is now and TRAINING CAMP is here! Opened in May of 2018, the planning took place much further in the past.
Variety & Inclusiveness
A chain is only as strong as its weakest link and the bond between the links of our staff couldn’t be stronger. Michael diligently took his time putting together a staff that is rooted in variety and experience in the fitness industry. This variety has helped shaped the inclusiveness of the program offerings at TRAINING CAMP. You can find Michael any given day training alongside his members, coaching an MMA or group fitness class, or smiling behind the desk ready to greet you upon entering our facility. Stop by, meet Michael and the rest of our staff, and tour our amazing 10,000 sq. ft. facility complete with everything one needs to build the best version of themselves! Your first class is always FREE here at Training Camp!
Michael is happily married to his wife Brie and in October of 2017, they adopted their son, Hap. Michael stands by the motto “work hard and surround yourself with good people and good things will happen.” TRAINING CAMP lives by that motto daily and it is his personal goal to see every single person who walks into TRAINING CAMP walk out a better person.
