Muddy Buddy is a six to seven mile off-road race where partners take turns biking, running, and overcoming a series of five obstacles. At the race start, one team member takes off running and the other mounts a spoked steed. At the first obstacle, the rider will drop the bike, complete the obstacle, and begin running. Once the runner arrives, he or she will tackle the obstacle, find the team bike, and begin peddling. Teams will continue in this leapfrog fashion throughout the course, cumulating in a down-and-dirty crawl through the infamous mud pit before crossing the finish line together to begin their lives as official, legally-sanctioned salamanders.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
