Nelson Recinos wasn’t born a martial-arts master. In fact, his first experience with fighting was surviving on the streets of a war-plagued El Salvador. Once he escaped his situation, Recinos honed his skills with a six-year tenure in Thailand, where he learned muay thai from local masters. Eventually he came to the states to compete as a professional prizefighter, winning 129 bouts and losing only 1.
Now he brings his lifetime of expertise to students at Recinos Muay Thai Bootcamp—an 8,000-square-foot facility. Recinos teaches muay thai and boxing, both of which he’s competed in. Sean Tribble, a purple belt in Brazilian jujitsu, assists by teaching his grappling art. Personal trainer Amanda Staudinger rounds out clients' training regimens with a cardio and conditioning class designed to get participants in fighting shape, with strong limbs, a powerful core, and hands replaced with bricks.
A fitness expert for more than a decade, Terence Hendricks whips clients into shape during True Fitness Boot Camp’s outdoor sweat sessions. The sun shines and the birds chirp as Terence, who holds five personal training certifications, leads students of all fitness levels through a 60-minute strength and cardio regimen of push-ups, sprints, and lunges. Classes—held five days per week—work the entire body, especially when supplemented by Terence and staff’s nutritional guidance. For clients who want to measure their transformations, the True Fitness team can perform pre- and post-camp evaluations, which may include taking body measurements and seeing how long it takes you to move one tiny mountain.
At Life Changer Training Institute, rather than leaving clients stranded on the sprawling gym floor, trainers guide them toward their fitness goals. They start with a consultation, taking stock of clients’ goals and assessing their current fitness level. Once clients have a solid understanding of where they are and where they want to be they can jump into the schedule of classes to whip themselves into shape. TRX sessions rely on suspension training to tone muscle and boot camps challenge the whole body in a supportive group setting.
Brick House Built's boot camps constantly change. Each week, certified coaches lead their classes through a new lineup of exercises, which might include resistance training, relay races, running, or levitating. In addition to their signature boot camps, Brick House Built offers a running group.
Whether his clients are looking to recover from injuries, lose fat and gain muscle, or become competitive athletes, Jeremy of Jones Performance Fitness has programs at the ready. The experienced and certified trainer, who also boasts a master’s degree in exercise science, developed his Accelerated Fat Loss Bootcamp to combine the attention and expertise of a personal trainer with the motivational environment of a group setting.

Upon entering the 25,000-square-foot Club Fit USA facility, guests are greeted by a sea of cardio equipment whirring beneath the glow of TV screens. Past the ellipticals, treadmills, and StairMasters lie Hammer and Icarian strength-training machines alongside Olympic bars and more than 6,000 additional weight plates to help guests carve out chiseled physiques. Within the combat ring, instructors lead boxing, MMA, and professional-style wrestling classes throughout the week, as well as cardio-intensive Civil War reenactments. The instructors also lead groups in myriad exercise classes, and for more personalized fat-burning routines, they work with clients in one-on-one personal-training sessions to draft custom fitness plans. Beyond the gym’s walls, the trainers strive to keep clients healthy with online nutrition tips and articles.
