Basic Training Academy programs—captained by personal trainers who have either earned or are completing their NFPT certification—enlist the power of positive reinforcement to keep patrons sprinting toward their fitness goals. The 60- to 90-minute sessions, which trade in the shrill screams and sarcastic parrot sidekicks of a drill sergeant for supportive mantras, focus on flexibility, strength, and conditioning. Three levels of boot-camp classes put physiques through challenging calisthenics, torching fat while attendees hustle through picturesque landscapes and vault over elk in parks and forest preserves.
People who want to augment their training experience can enlist in Basic Training Academy's AZPAC (A-Z Physical Assessment Consultation) program. Personal trainers work one-on-one with clients to assess lifestyle patterns before creating personalized long-term fitness strategies. To cement the bonds of workout camaraderie and give students a chance to bask, the academy also holds an annual retreat to Devil's Lake State Park, where participants escape the noise of the city and learn that Devil's Lake is just like a normal lake, only with more chocolate in it.
Great music can give exercisers the extra boost of energy to leap over plateaus. Fight Fit Fitness takes that concept a step further, keeping a live DJ on staff to spin tunes for some of their classes. Instructors lead high-intensity cardio-kickboxing classes, challenging students through kickboxing drills that build strength, flexibility, and cardiovascular health, all set to bass-thumping polka tunes. Regular kickboxing classes focus on foot-flown combat, whereas other sessions, such as Zumba and Turbo Kick, aim to build muscles in a party-esque atmosphere. In addition to group classes, trainers offer one-on-one sessions for all fitness levels—ushering clients toward their health targets, whether they want to get back into shape, enhance sports performance, or jump-start a bodybuilding career.

They embrace Tabata training and circuits in indoor and outdoor boot camps and seek to build core strength, stamina, and flexibility for those aged 50 or older in Fitness Fusion classes. Five programs are designed to instill the importance of fitness in kids, and personal-training sessions help participants create custom plans to meet their weight-loss goals.
