Randy Brown was overweight and felt uncomfortable with his body. When a friend encouraged him to try boot camp, he reluctantly joined. Through hard work and with support from his instructor, he transformed his body and felt better than ever before. Today, Randy is a certified personal trainer and wants to help others do what his instructor helped him to do years ago: get in shape, gain confidence, and whistle Beethoven's Symphony no. 9. Through the years, he has grown Brown's Boot Camp from one class of 25 students to 14 different camps, and some of his students have gone on to become personal trainers themselves, which speaks to the success of his workout regimen and the camp's communal atmosphere. Randy's program focuses on improving total fitness, which not only includes strength, cardio, and flexibility but also nutritional counseling.

The trainers at Bodyzen Boot Camps know many workout environments can be intimidating. That's why their outdoor boot-camp sessions are brief, entertaining, and adaptable, featuring exercises with three stages of intensity to suit different strength levels. The 30- to 45-minute classes include kettlebell swings, cardio drills, and bodyweight moves designed to torch fat from physiques of all builds. During the camp's vigorous intervals, instructors patrol their troops with a personal trainer's eye and tailored advice. They continue the trend of individualized treatment after class, when they open the floor for questions and six-pack show-and-tell. Though they devote much of their energy to fast-paced routines, staff members also highlight the value of proper nutrition. Each camper receives a nutritional manual and a six-week meal plan to guide eating escapades, and optional body-composition analyses keep them up-to-date with their own progress.

At CrossFit Fixx, Anne Manka and her coaching crew, Team Fixx, make adults, children, and adults of all ages perform the same exercises. This may sound counterintuitive, but every movement performed in a given Workout of the Day (WOD) is scalable to the capabilities of the athlete. In other words, every participant is doing the same exercise, just adjusted for duration or load in accordance with how much the athlete can realistically take on. This is what makes the sport accessible to all ages and fitness levels, including the elderly, still-developing youngsters, and adults who only run when they are double-parked. Ultimately, the coaches ask only that their students push themselves and each other through the constantly varied exercises in order to reap long-term benefits such as increased strength, flexibility, and endurance.

For once, it’s OK to play in the mud: in each of the Terrain Mud Runs, racers compete in a challenging race through the muck of a 3- or 5-mile obstacle course. Before the race starts, you’ll store a clean change of clothes in a gear tent. Put on a race T-shirt (provided to each participant), affix a timing computer chip to your shoe, and then head to the starting line to race against the others, climbing on monkey bars, crawling through tubes, scaling cargo nets, and dodging soap salesmen. At the end of the course, you’ll head to the terrain village for an afterparty. The awards don’t end there: the organizers hand out more specialized awards, such as fastest man and fastest woman in different age groups, rewards for best-dressed teams, and an award for the largest team. You’ll also get to enjoy beer, food, and music with family, friends, and other racers.
