Get Fit with True Body Fitness: Boot Camp

Kimo Frederiksen, personal trainer and owner of Detroit's True Body Fitness, brought some guests today to help him out.

Join True Body Fitness with their partners at Detroit Tough every Friday at 6:30 p.m. for an hour of grunting, sweating, swearing and laughing. They are looking to build a healthy outlet for our growing Gay community in metro Detroit. Come meet some new locals or just come to pick on the ones you already know. Class is a $10 suggested donation but there is absolutely no pressure to give. All proceeds will be split between The Ruth Ellis Center and Affirmations.

True Body Fitness is located in Corktown, near the old Tigers Stadium.

The Ruth Ellis Center:
