PRIDE Conditioning's boot-camp classes are tailor-made to send wrecking balls of encouragement through stonewalled fitness routines. All sessions are led by Doug Seamans, a certified personal trainer, weight-loss expert, and mixed-martial-arts practitioner who's equal parts combat boots and enthusiasm. Doug will assume the role of drill sergeant during boot camp; the environment is made to feel encouraging, but only for participants willing to work hard and push themselves to a critical mass of sweaty exertion. Workouts are designed to utilize every pit and portion of the human body, keeping each class interesting and challenging. Potential training includes body-weight exercises, plyometrics, dumbbell repetitions, isometrics, short-distance running, sprinting, stability balls, cardio and strength training, throwing refrigerators, and more.
Shannon "The Cannon" Hudson is an International Kickboxing Federation world champion, a fifth-degree black belt in Japanese shotokan karate, and a survivor of more than 70 bouts in the ring—yet, one of his most influential titles is "father." With two kids clinging around his waist like a squirmy fanny pack, Shannon started brainstorming a way to channel his boxing and kickboxing training into a quick, effective workout that even those who are busy or out of shape could tackle. The result was 9Round, a 30-minute routine of aerobic, anaerobic, and resistance moves divided into a circuit of nine stations. The ever-changing series of workouts maximizes morale and results while minimizing boredom.
His trainers launch the workouts every three minutes, motivating exercisers through each station—which might include jumping rope or pummeling speed bags. Online nutritional counseling supplements the workouts, teaching patrons how to construct and eat healthy meals instead of falling back on old habits, such as snacking on cheese sculptures.
