Freeplay is an incredible establishment with the nicest, hassle-free staff I've personally ever encountered. There is always equipment available for a seamless exercise regiment and truly 24 hour acc...ess. The patrons are welcoming and friendly, always looking to fuel motivation. I recommend Freeplay to anyone looking to improve overall health and fitness, and I'll call this gym home for as long as I live in the Columbia area! See More

Freeplay rules. This place helped me transform my life. When I began in 2011 I worked with JT his functional training and the ability to use the gym 24/7 put me on the path to physical well being. 4 y...ears later my waist is a 32 and I have lost about 27 pounds and gained lean muscle mass. I feel better than I have since I was 28 and I am 42 years old !!!! See More

Gym Tip of the Day!


Hitting the gym 7 days a week is actually counterproductive. Your body, your muscles, your bones NEED time to rest and recover. As you work out, tiny tears are occur in your muscles. This is good! Once they repair, you’ll be stronger and fitter than you were before. BUT, in order to repair, your body needs rest. Active rest or active recovery is technically still a workout, but is a much easier, lighter, slower paced workout designed to be done... on "off" days from the gym. Here are some examples of active rest activities!

1. Go for a hike
2. Swim (swimming really helps with soreness)
3. Go for a bike ride
4. Do some yoga
5. Go for a light jog
6. Run around with your dog/kids
7. Play a sport (you’ll want to be careful here, if you go too hard you might not get to count it as a rest day)
8. Go for a walk outdoors
9. Do some light jump roping or bodyweight exercises such as air squats

PREP! As I promised yesterday, I want to touch on meal prepping.

WHAT is meal prepping? Meal prepping is simple! All you have to do is cook a large amount of certain foods one or two days a week, then divide, pack, and store them for easy to grab meals.
