Boredom may be acceptable on the couch, but never in the gym. RAW Fitness instructors animate a dedication to that credo by invigorating students of all skill levels during indoor or outdoor training with their constantly changing boot camps. The team melds traditional exercises, such as light running and resistance training, with unorthodox segments spent crawling and climbing through obstacle courses either solo or teamed up with a partner. But RAW’s fitness system, which targets thighs, glutes, and abs, is only one part of the equation, like a presidential candidate's hair or abs. In addition to their boot-camp routines, trainers lead the Eating for Success nutritional program, which teaches students 12 habits to permanently lose weight.
103 Hot Pilates and Yoga's high-tech heating and humidifying system is designed to help draw out toxins and stretch muscles during hot yoga, Pilates, and boot camp sessions. The system also pumps fresh air back into the studio and removes odors and bacteria. Here, licensed instructors teach classes like 103 Intro Yoga, designed to help newbies learn the classic poses of yoga in a heated environment, and 103 Yoga Power Sculpt, a challenging 60-minute session designed to sculpt and tone the entire body. The 103 Barefoot Boot Camp class fuses cardio with strength training to efficiently condition muscles without sending them to timeout, or a 103 HPX Hot Pilates session, where core strength is emphasized and students rapidly burn off calories.

Julie Johnston founded Boot Camp Las Vegas in 2005, when?after unsuccessfully trying to lose 60 pounds through a battery of exercise techniques?she considered enlisting in the military solely for the physical challenge and camaraderie. Upon reconsideration, she decided to reclaim some turf from the lazy birds in nearby parks and stage her own workouts to build the physical and mental toughness she knew she was capable of developing. Today, a team of instructors?all certified personal trainers who have completed 64 days of boot-camp training?preaches Johnston's program to exercisers of all fitness levels. To help monitor and maximize workouts, they stage weigh-ins, take measurements, perform physical-fitness tests, and dish out a nutrition packet to shed light on healthy eating.
