The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

The trainers at Bodyzen Boot Camps know many workout environments can be intimidating. That's why their outdoor boot-camp sessions are brief, entertaining, and adaptable, featuring exercises with three stages of intensity to suit different strength levels. The 30- to 45-minute classes include kettlebell swings, cardio drills, and bodyweight moves designed to torch fat from physiques of all builds. During the camp's vigorous intervals, instructors patrol their troops with a personal trainer's eye and tailored advice. They continue the trend of individualized treatment after class, when they open the floor for questions and six-pack show-and-tell.

Though they devote much of their energy to fast-paced routines, staff members also highlight the value of proper nutrition. Each camper receives a nutritional manual and a six-week meal plan to guide eating escapades, and optional body-composition analyses keep them up-to-date with their own progress.

When discussing the teaching philosophy at Tucson Pole Fitness, founder Jessica McCain explained to reporters of Tucson Weekly, “Our goal is not just to teach you fancy tricks. Our goal is to help you lose weight and get fit. Along the way, you learn new things.” Among them, fancy new tricks. Jessica and her staff of fellow instructors conduct a variety of fat-blasting, fitness-infused pole-dancing classes on the towering gold poles of their private studio, interspersing routines of spins, tricks, and climbs with high-intensity strength and conditioning exercises. Other classes focus more on the pure artistry of the form, creating routines and honing technique. In addition to Tucson Pole Fitness’s bread and butter, the instructors lead lap-dancing sessions and striptease workshops, ideal for injecting a little spice into relationships or seducing your favorite football team’s mascot.

The instructors at Plexus Pilates strive to inspire their students to new levels of fitness by challenging them to learn experientially how Pilates’ muscle-strengthening benefits can enhance any lifestyle, from active to sedentary. During class, the instructors can teach any combination of floor-based mat exercises and machine-based moves on the Pilates Reformer, which generates gentle amounts of spring resistance to boost the difficulty of Pilates moves in much the same way a waterbed increases difficulty for a sleepwalking sloth. While instructors offer ample attention and step-by-step guidance for beginning students, the intermediate and advanced sessions require pupils to closely monitor their own form and technique. The studios' system can eventually teach attendees how to apply the skills of mindful muscle control and slow-motion high-fiving to everyday life.

The certified trainers at Ventana CrossFit don't subscribe to gimmicky quick-fix weight-loss programs and fad diets. Instead, they value long-term lifestyle changes achieved through hard work and dedication, motivating their clients to change how they look at themselves and their overall wellness. In each class, they lead small groups of students through the high-intensity Workout of the Day, which challenges different muscle groups each time the sun rises to prevent fitness plateaus.

These total-body toning exercises are based on CrossFit's nine fundamental movements, including squats, shoulder presses, and dead lifts. The trainers take a custom approach to classes and can scale exercises to suit students of all ages, fitness levels, and character classes—from the feeble sorcerer to the burly barbarian. In addition to performing the foundational moves, students also swing kettlebells, heave medicine balls, and jump rope to carve a lean, toned physique.

Randy Brown was overweight and felt uncomfortable with his body. When a friend encouraged him to try boot camp, he reluctantly joined. Through hard work and with support from his instructor, he transformed his body and felt better than ever before. Today, Randy is a certified personal trainer and wants to help others do what his instructor helped him to do years ago: get in shape, gain confidence, and whistle Beethoven's Symphony no. 9. Through the years, he has grown Brown's Boot Camp from one class of 25 students to 14 different camps, and some of his students have gone on to become personal trainers themselves, which speaks to the success of his workout regimen and the camp's communal atmosphere. Randy's program focuses on improving total fitness, which not only includes strength, cardio, and flexibility but also nutritional counseling.
