Committed boot campers at TRXtreme Boot Camp are all assigned their own coach, who periodically calls them up to provide advice, encouragement, and accountability. The coaches aren’t the stereotypical hollering drill sergeants—they motivate and push campers so that they leave each workout proudly exhausted for having challenged themselves. During each 45-minute boot camp, participants strengthen their core muscles and sculpt their bodies using TRX-suspension training bands, which use body weight as resistance during varying exercises. Workouts constantly change, with coaches getting groups to do exercises that may include squatting twirling heavy ropes, or flipping tires from comically large clown cars. The gym's rubber floor also makes impacts easier on joints so everyone can battle through workouts unhindered.
A trio of Inside Out Studios inspires balance and tones muscles with gentle, dance-inspired, and weighted workouts overseen by a ladies’ only staff in open, air-conditioned spaces. Pilates practitioners unite quick, rigorous movements with deep, controlled breathing to fortify the core and lengthen the frame. Similarly, barre fitness wields a traditional ballet mainstay as a crutch for moves that challenge both the inexperienced dancer and the retired jewelry-box performer. In TRX suspension training, students employ dangling straps to build strength with body-resistance exercises, boost flexibility, and chisel the core. High-intensity kettlebell classes coalesce cardio, balance, and toning with handled weights that exercisers hold during squats, spins, and triple-axel jumps. Each class style’s page lists its schedule, with classes available from 6 a.m. until 6 p.m.
At Fitness WorX Training Studio, clients can squeeze an effective group training workout into as little as 30 minutes. By pushing themselves through intervals of cardio and strength training with TRX suspension equipment, jump ropes, medicine balls, and free weights, participants prime their bodies to burn up to 650 calories per workout as well as 250-300 calories even after the session ends with the after-burn effect.

In one-hour, participants boost energy, raise their metabolic rates, and clear their minds while working out in a fun, stylish studio space. In addition to Pop Sculpt classes, the studio also hosts vigorous Pilates Barre and Pop Yoga sessions.
