Though its title may conjure up images of base jumping or spelunking in volcanoes, Xtreme Sports challenges its members to tackle standard recreational activities with intensity. But its coaches and trainers also know that sports and physical activity should be fun, so whether their charges are shimmying to Latin rhythms in a Zumba class, improving athletic prowess during athlete boot camp, or honing teamwork skills during summer camp, they are getting positive reinforcement. This helps the instructors lead both adults and children toward their individual goals of losing weight, improving agility, or bench-pressing family members.
