Having trained Amy Reid, the current Twin Dragon Canadian women’s flyweight champion, as well as Jason Leava, the USKBA men’s middleweight champion, the coaches at Effective Kickboxing know how to train those of all skill levels and fitness. Their client roster also includes heavy hitters such as Starr Guest, EOFL women's flyweight champion, and Robert Hymans, men's EOFL heavyweight and now the Twin Dragon Kickboxing association's super heavy weight champion. While working with such elite fighters dominates much of their time, instructors also help keep nonfighters in peak physical shape. During high-intensity classes, trainers combine endurance, strength, and flexibility exercises so that participants can burn up to 900 calories per session. Each class features enough kicks and punches to convince shadows to wear mouth guards, and coaches instruct on methods of maintaining balance, precision, and striking power.

Designed by U.S. Military drill instructors, The O Course Crucible is based on the Marine Corps Crucible. While that challenge is 54 hours long and covers more than 60 kilometers, this race covers roughly 12 kilometers. However, the obstacles participants must surmount are designed in the same military style. Based both on land and in the water, the obstacles are kept secret before the race—but they are sure to test participants' endurance, strength and creativity under pressure. Once they complete the course, participants celebrate at an afterparty with food and drinks where the race officials honor the fastest racers.
