Even if you exercise during conventional hours, Snap's friendly, unintimidating atmosphere will provide a refreshing change of pace from any meat-market gym or tough elementary schoolyard.
Unlike the competitive environment of a testosterone-stuffed gym or mixed-martial hopscotch tournament, women's boot camp encourages all ages, skill levels, and abilities to motivate each other in a comfortable group setting. Salt Lake Adventure's certified trainers constantly challenge participants to achieve higher levels of fitness.

You'll get a nutrition seminar and fitness assessments at the start and end of camp so that you can track your progress.
The trainers at CrossFit Aether have a unique understanding of their clients’ struggles to get in shape, because only a few years ago, they were in the same spot. Seeking to improve their lives through fitness, they rallied around owner Matt Van Dyke to mold a method of exercise that allows individuals’ inherent strength to bubble to the surface. Rooted in four fundamental elements—motivation, nutrition, action, and renewal—the CrossFit regime consists of varied daily workouts that incorporate functional movements such as burpees and sprints. This unique blend of weightlifting and gymnastic maneuvers readies athletes for more advanced classes, personal training, or running with the bulls while honing overall fitness.

After three of the 45-minute intro sessions, exercisers will have pushed through progressively intense workouts and receive a degree to pursue graduate-level vitality in the general CrossFit classes.

The trainers at Pure Workout have stripped away the glamour of giant, impersonal gyms. They usher guests into a no-excuses zone where simple weights and calisthenics reign supreme, leading their classes with a potent mix of fitness expertise and tough love.

With no regard for noncommittal members who sneak helium into their kettlebells, the staff prizes Pure Workout's exclusive atmosphere—a quality that earned the gym a feature on NBC 5 and the title of CityVoter's Best Boot Camp in 2012.
