Upon entering Me First Fitness, awarded the Diamond award for Best Boot Camp from News Advertiser from 2009 to 2014, guests notice a distinct absence of rows of people doing the same exercises over and over on the same machines again and again. Here, patrons battle their own body weight with TRX suspension trainers, swing kettlebells, lift weights, and shed pounds using interval training programs to whip into shape. The staff of certified and specialized trainers pushes patrons to achieve healthy lifestyles through personal-training sessions and 40 different classes each week, including high-intensity boot-camp classes. They boast that no two workouts are the same, preventing minds from getting bored and bodies from becoming accustomed to the movements, thus rendering workouts less effective. To supplement their body-sculpting workouts, the trainers motivate guests to change their diets, equipping them with healthful meal plans and recipes, and raiding secret storage lockers full of Twinkies.

Studio owner Zahra aims to help empower the women she works with, whether she?s helming her annual makeup drive for a local women?s shelter or while teaching the sinuous art of belly dance at her studio. Since 2001, her Zahra?s School of Dance has helped women celebrate their bodies, with special workshops led by international belly dance icons in addition to her regularly scheduled classes and workshops. In all classes, instructors teach graceful moves that centre on the lower body and focus on the waist and hips. Higher-level courses incorporate props such as veils and tambourines, eschewing the most basic belly-dancing prop, a T-shirt with six-pack abs drawn on it. Specialty classes, meanwhile, may combine belly dancing with various different dance genres. Most of these are age-appropriate for kids.

Extreme Fitness sets Toronto's calories ablaze at the 13 renovated, multimillion-dollar locations peppered throughout the greater suburban area. Each facility hosts a menagerie of group fitness classes, which can be taken à la carte or bundled into a gym membership. Muscles loosen up in hot-yoga classes or bulge into sinewy symbols of might in outdoor boot camps, where students soak up vitamin D or distill Capri Sun from the sun's rays. To make sure members get the most of the gym's myriad amenities, personal trainers kick off fitness journeys with their Smart Start program, taking BMI measurements and analyzing heart health and oxygen uptake to give patrons a clearer picture of how much and what types of exercise they need to hit their goals.

After working up a calorie-blasting sweat, members can retire to the steam rooms or whirlpool tubs to soothe sore muscles. The internet business lounge lets people catch up on email while sipping a rejuvenating smoothie from the juice bar, and the basketball courts host pick-up games where adults can show underdog teams of fifth-graders that it takes a little more than pluck and an adorable animal sidekick to win games.

For Debbie Benko, owner of Fitness Bootcamp Canada, boot camps aren’t just for sculpting muscles and melting calories. They’re a tool for shedding hang-ups and unlocking pent-up potential. A certified personal trainer and enthusiastic life coach, Debbie draws upon more than 20 years of fitness expertise and recent training in neuro-linguistic programming to help women become more focused and resilient. She’s also driven by an important lesson learned while teaching English overseas: everyone wants to feel valued, no matter how they look, where they live, or what language they speak. To blaze a trail to the future, people often need to look at the past, at those times when they’ve felt undervalued or misunderstood. “That’s why I’m about making breakthroughs,” Debbie explains. “I help my clients take a close look at why they want to accomplish a particular goal and how their past has affected that goal so far.” Listening carefully is a key to achieving these breakthroughs, as is a strong support system. During one-on-one activities such as nutrition consultations, Debbie showers clients with personal attention while helping them make positive changes in their lives, from planning healthier meals to establishing clear boundaries with overly clingy shadows. She rallies exercisers of all levels for indoor boot-camp classes, where team-like camaraderie propels each participant toward goals while enhancing confidence and self-esteem. Most classes teem with calisthenics, plyometrics, and short sprints, which boost energy levels while toning muscles throughout the body. Exercises are often performed in intervals to maximize calorie burn and cultivate endurance at a manageable pace.

After decades of winning the admiration of stock-car racing fans with his aggressive driving strategy and off-track charisma, Rusty Wallace now gives others the chance to experience the rush of racing. He joined forces with Sodikart to roll out the Rusty Wallace Kart Experience, pairing kart with driver at some of the country's most celebrated racetracks. Racers can hop in a custom RT8 (or its kid-friendly counterpart, the LR4) and hit the gas, tearing up everything from the versatile road courses and speedy main track of the Atlanta Motor Speedway to the challenging lava pits of the Milwaukee Mile.

But this go-karting business has a big brother?the Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. It's a high-speed trip into the pro-racing trade, with breathtaking ride-alongs and racing experiences in stock cars. Guests buckle up and sit shotgun alongside professional drivers as they fly down straightaways and around curves. They can even get behind the wheel themselves, finally feeling what it's like to be a professional driver.
