The humidity is high within King's Court Health and Sports Club's sauna, nearing 100% as hot stones send steam up to the ceiling.

Outside of these private areas, a full weight room and other workout facilities unfurl a panoply of exercising options.

All classes take place within the two-floor facility and make use of its newly appointed classrooms and modern workout equipment—cardio machines, exercise balls, and the chairs with which Hulk Hogan used to wrestle.

Campers might try out everything from whipping heavy battle ropes up and down to getting on the floor for pushups, burpees, and rounds of playing dead.
