Free from the competitive environment of a testosterone-stuffed gym or mixed-martial hopscotch tournament, women's boot camp encourages the estrogen-enhanced of all ages, skill levels, and abilities to motivate each other in a comfortable group setting. Adventure's certified trainers in Tulsa and Owasso constantly challenge participants to achieve higher levels of fitness. Each class takes you through a variable variety of body-blasting, calorie-pulverizing exercises that might include core conditioning, short-distance running, jumping rope, obstacle courses, and a few last-minute surprise twists, such as discovering that boot camp was all a dream. You'll also get an orientation, initial fitness screening, nutrition and meal plan, and fitness reports.
Jazzercise is 60 minutes of cardio, strength training, and stretching that incorporates moves from hip-hop, yoga, Pilates, jazz dance, kickboxing, and resistance training with handheld weights. Dancing with the Stars' multiple-champion Cheryl Burke is a big fan of Jazzercise's improvisational workouts, though luckily you won't need her dance moves to get the most out of your class. If you're prone to first-class jitters, though, you can review the basic moves online before you go. Expect to burn off up to 600 calories with each go-round.
CrossFit Primus's intense namesake workout serves as the chosen bulk-building regimen for police academies, military troops, and martial artists across the world. One of the studio's three certified trainers helms each sweat-inducing session, which touts a scalable regimen to challenge both the neophyte exerciser and the human tow truck. Classes incorporate a variety of moves reliant on barbells, pull-up bars, and suspension rings as exercisers test their tendons with moves such as dead lifts, squats, handstands, jumps, and sprints. Each day welcomes a fresh class curriculum, blasting through traditional exercise plateaus like an elephant romping in a moon bounce. For fledgling CrossFitters, the gym offers a complimentary Saturday session to introduce the program, and all newbies must complete the course prior to enlisting in regular classes, which take place six days a week.

Certified trainer and nutritionist Joshua Fountain has centered his life around physical fitness, boasting an impressive resumé that lists stints as a former U.S. Airborne Ranger, a professional MMA fighter, and a boxer. With the help of his wife, Charlotte—who is also a certified trainer, nutrition coach, and marathon runner—he puts his extensive and diverse background to use motivating clients to blast through their perceived physical limitations. Together, the duo helps clients of all fitness levels reach their goals during indoor boot-camp workouts, which the trainers proudly liken to CrossFit programs sans the weight-training aspect. Instead of relying on bulky weights or machines, they craft regimens that incorporate custom functional movements, muscle-sculpting kettlebells, medicine balls, and suspension exercises designed to isolate key muscle groups.
In addition to private and small-group personal-training sessions, they offer complimentary nutrition coaching that follows the Paleo lifestyle, a natural dieting system that eschews refined, processed foods in favor of vegetables, lean meats, and candy that's only made of vegetables and lean meats. They also sell AdvoCare supplements and cleanses designed to pump up energy levels and metabolism.
