Fitness expert Christina Lucy founded Code Pink Boot Camp and has since expanded her fitness program into numerous locations throughout the western United States. Each of the trainers working for Code Pink claims extensive training and accredited certifications in the industry, and must undergo a strict audition to demonstrate their fitness prowess and knowledge of how many annual budgets each U.S. president could bench-press. With a schedule that includes several sessions throughout the weekday, the classes accommodate clients with varying schedules. During each session, instructors guide participants through high-intensity exercises that aim to incinerate fat, tone torsos, and improve overall well-being. The program caters to women of all ages and fitness levels and stresses safety, fun, and perseverance.
Eager to provide marital-arts expertise and fitness know-how, Peak Training Center offers instruction and conditioning to people of all ages and skill levels. Four coaches and specialized instructors help aspiring MMA fighters step up their games and show regular exercisers efficient methods of getting in shape. The staff teaches Brazilian Jiu-jitsu—the world's premier form of grappling—as well as kickboxing, muay thai, and mixed martial arts. They also build cardio endurance in athletes by turning to dance, with classes such as Zumba and hot hula. They lead yoga sessions to promote flexibility and Pilates classes to build strong cores, a necessary step before athletes can throw solid punches or stun opponents by exposing their six-packs.
Javier Lozano Jr.'s passion for physical fitness began during his martial-arts training. Since then, he's become a personal trainer certified by the Aerobics and Fitness Association of America and the International Sports Science Association. He's also a black belt in Wado Kai, and a Colorado-state karate champion. Along with his wife Susan, who is a certified boot-camp coach, he shares this passion for fitness with others during intensive indoor and outdoor boot-camp classes. During the always-changing sessions, the Lozanos help clients of all fitness levels sculpt fitter frames using functional movements augmented by kettlebells, resistance bands, and plump sandbags. They aim to further the effects of these workouts with their complimentary nutrition program, which overhauls unhealthy lifestyle choices with practical plans for swapping out bad diets with proteins, whole grains, and nonwax fruits.
Tiffany Coolidge, the head of Blunt Force, was recently named the city's top personal trainer by 5280 Magazine. Once a campaign manager, she quit politics and took up fitness as a career and hobby. As the head of the gym, she draws on her past experience as a boxer, which started with a fight she won by TKO, and culminated in the gym's corner boxing ring. At Blunt Force, Tiffany and her staff of trainers work together to provide a modern approach to traditional workout regimens.
The 9,000-square-foot space hosts far more than boxing instruction, however. Tiffany's team also runs a variety of fitness classes, such as bootcamp workouts that blend kickboxing and yoga as well as functional strength training sessions that incorporate cardio work and core exercises. Their ski and snowboarding conditioning, meanwhile, prepares clients to hit the slopes without having to roll down them. Although the instructors cap class attendance at 12 students?allowing them to provide more personalized guidance?they also offer personal training sessions, which combine one-on-one attention with exercises tailored to the client's fitness goals.

Up to 800 calories burned. 70%–90% maximum heart rate achieved. One 30-minute workout. To achieve these results, the instructors and nutrition coaches at FIIT WERX have distilled their fitness classes down to a science. They're also committed to championing the benefits of barefoot training, which they say helps to improve posture, balance, and foot strength. In FIIT—full-intensity interval training—circuit classes, instructors lead students through rigorous, shoeless cardio and resistance workouts, which vary to allow other muscles to recover between sessions. Each class is based on the tenets of functional movement, relying on workouts that condition bodies for everyday tasks such as hoisting heavy laundry baskets, chopping logs into firewood, and lifting baby bears into tubs for their baths. Students can measure their progress with MyZone heart-rate and physical-activity monitors.
This same commitment to barefoot training also extends to FIIT WERX's partner gym, willPower Fit Studio. There, instructors lead challenging classes whose blend of yoga, Pilates, boot-camp, and cardio workouts adhere to their philosophy of positive, functional fitness. Scalable for athletes and aspiring athletes alike, classes such as willPower & grace and willPower infusion integrate challenging full-body workouts with sports psychology and multisensory stimulation to leave students as mentally sharp as they are physically fit.
