MAHOMET — A new opportunity for working out is now available in Mahomet, but the man leading the fitness classes is not new to the industry.

Tyvon Davis of Rantoul has brought his DFP Fitness boot camp business to Sangamon on Main in downtown Mahomet, and he starts bright and early each Monday and Friday at 5 a.m. with sessions that go up to an hour but average about 40 minutes.

The classes are held in the gym at Sangamon on Main.

Davis has worked with other trainers at their own “boot camp” type of businesses for about three years.

“I kind of learned the ropes through them over the last few years, then I recently decided to go solo about a year and a half ago,” he said.

Although he’s based in Rantoul. Davis has played football since middle school against guys who lived in Mahomet.

“They just suggested that I should try Mahomet. Before I even had the opportunity to reach out to anyone, somebody actually reached out to me via Facebook about trying in Sangamon, so that’s how that came to be,” he said.

Since about the beginning of the year, Davis has offered the two classes per week at a cost of $50 per month. He also offers individual 30-minute sessions for $25 and one-hour sessions for $40.

The regular Monday and Friday classes at Sangamon on Main are designed for variety in both exercise and students.

“It’s open to anybody that comes, to all fitness levels. So anybody who’s never lifted a single weight or who has never taken part in a fitness program, they can still come in because it’s geared toward all fitness levels,” Davis said.

Newcomers and fitness veterans alike can find something to challenge them at his workouts, according to Davis.

“They still walk out feeling like they had a great workout,” he said. “I like to mix it all together and keep it varied for people. It’s very easy for people to get bored … so I try to always deliver new workouts.”

He’s had up to 10 people in a class so far and averages three to four. In March, DFP Fitness is offering 30 days for $30.
