One-hour boot-camp classes keep muscles on their toes with a combination of yoga, martial arts, plyometrics, and core work for a cardio and strength-building workout. Students must attend consecutive sessions—which meet three times a week as part of a four-week program—and should bring 5-pound dumbbells, gloves to protect hands in the grass, and an exercise mat.

Ultimate Body Boot Camp
The trainers at Ultimate Body Boot Camp forage through the workout wilderness to curate a fitness omnibus. They pull from multiple exercise styles—including Pilates, plyometrics, kickboxing, yoga, and core work—to build workouts that combine the benefits of cardio and resistance training. This earned the program a top spot on Arizona Foothills magazine's Best of Our Valley list for 2012.
To keep clients' muscles from hitting the wall, getting bored, or taking off in the dead of night to pursue a career as an anatomy textbook model, coaches change the routine each class and give campers personalized tips to fuel individual journeys. Body-composition tests and nutritional plans augment the sessions, inspiring long-lasting habits for healthy physiques.
