As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

The experienced instructors at Arizona Elite Bootcamp understand that not everyone can do a one-handed pushup or bench-press a Fiat. Instead, they embrace each of their students’ individual abilities in boot camps, which combine the benefits of a strength and cardio workout with a motivational group mentality. In three outdoor locations, campers use both designated equipment and their own body weight to work their entire bodies. After workouts, clients can log in to the website’s fitness-tracking feature to view detailed reports and graphs that show their progress.
Its rapid rise chronicled in in Forbes, Men’s Journal, and a parcel of other press, Hiking Yoga has sent massive waves of invigorated bliss washing up and down the west coast since its 2009 founding.
