Total Core Fitness Boot Camp's four-week sessions eschew full-metal drill sergeantry for a positive, encouraging style. Motivating trainers help campers get into shapes such as buff, lean, and octagon via a comprehensive nutrition plan, tracking of body-mass stats, and 50-minute workouts. At camp, like-minded folk of various abilities engage in a variety of aerobic options, both indoors and out, including group activities, such as swinging mallets at tires until they shed oily tears and lugging weights in relay races. Traditional equipment such as stationary bikes and rowing machines are also on hand and foot. The boot-camp schedule includes classes throughout the day on Mondays–Thursdays, and the next session begins on March 14. Anxious ab disciplinarians can begin sooner and roll over unattended classes to the next session.
With training gained from every corner of the globe, Dr. Lawrence Petracco's team of specialists—which includes chiropractors, a physical therapist, and an acupuncture expert—take a preventative, whole-body approach to assuaging physical aches.

Exercising can be frustrating if you don't see results. In addition to a slimmer physique, guests at Endure Cycling can see the numerical breakdown of their workout—from the amount of pedal strokes to the number of calories burned to their heart rate throughout their stationary journey. Here, the stationary bicycles use internal sensors to monitor each individual's performance, allowing students to track their progress over time. After saddling up on one of the studio's M3+ indoor cycles, cyclers join a certified instructor on a simulated joyride through a pre-programmed series of climbs, restorative plateaus, and thrilling loop-de-loops while high-energy music helps to keep them motivated. Smart sensors track the RPMs of each bike as well as the rider's heart rate, transmitting data to the room's flat-screen television in real time and storing it for future review. This allows students to keep an eye on their numbers throughout each workout, or go online after class and chart their improvement across multiple sessions to print out and put on their fridge.
Co-owners Patrick Cabello and Brian Cirillo have firsthand knowledge of what it takes to be inspired to get fit. Patrick learned how much dedication it takes when he transformed his body from 230 pounds with more than 25% body fat to a chiseled 185 pounds. Brian spent years as a personal trainer, spurring his students toward their fitness goals with enthusiasm. Today, the fitness gurus use their hard-won experience to handpick a fleet of instructors they determine to be friendly, focused, and charismatic enough to motivate exercisers toward their own personal transformations. Inside the 2,400-square-foot studio, the instructors lead hip-shaking Zumba classes to strengthen cores, spinning classes that whip hearts into a cardio frenzy, and kickboxing sessions to equip students with defensive moves and Rockette-intimidating high kicks. Personal trainers can help gym-goers devise a strategy for achieving fitness goals, or visitors can attack the studio's cattle ropes, poles, punching bags, and monkey bars on their own.
