If Victor Frankenstein ever took a break from science to design a 5K race, the result would have probably looked something like a Hybrid Hell Run event. Each race in the Hybrid Hell Run series is similar to Frankenstein’s monster: races are gritty, spread out across misshapen terrain, and require every ounce of physical and mental strength to survive.
With each of its races cranking up the intensity level, the series selects locations that are naturally challenging, such as forests, hills, or M. C. Escher’s labyrinthine backyard. The HHR team then brews up a ruthless lineup of physical challenges, maintaining focus on three main categories—cardiovascular endurance, strength, and speed and agility. The finished course tests the athletic prowess of male, female, and youth divisions, with top performers receiving cash rewards.
Craig Marks knows the importance of hard work. He worked his way up through the wrestling ranks until his training for the Olympic pre-trials, during which he injured his neck. Never one to become discouraged, he threw himself into becoming a personal trainer with the same gusto that he'd shown during his Olympic training. Today, he helps guests reach their fitness goals with 30-minute bursts of metabolic circuit training and personal training sessions.
Throughout Jim Sayih?s career, he?s helped people from all walks of life get in shape. He?s created fitness programs used by the US Secret Service and SWAT teams. He's chatted with President Bill Clinton about the childhood obesity epidemic and dedicated himself to mapping out classes, exercises, and lifestyle plans. And Jim was so inspired by the races he's run while pushing his son Michael, who has cerebral palsy, that he organized Michael's Special 5K Run/Walk, where runners pushed riders in wheelchairs.
Today, Jim shares that lifelong love of fitness through Broward County Adventure Boot Camp. He and Rhonda Core?an American Council on Exercise?certified trainer?give their clients the extra push they need to get in shape. The boot-camp routines constantly change to keep participants engaged and muscles from rebelling. On any given day, students might be practicing Pilates, doing yoga, overcoming obstacle courses, or going on a hike. Before new attendees start camp, the trainers invite them in for an evaluation to answer any questions, take a few measurements, and record their body-fat percentage so their results can be more easily tracked over time.
