In parks throughout the United States and Vancouver, Access Boot Camp's certified personal trainers continually perplex muscles with a new 60-minute routine each class. The drills blend resistance exercises with cardio routines such as running, calisthenics, and sparring against defibrillators, striving to shed fat and toughen physiques. Clients might wrestle against resistance bands, hoist small dumbbells, or partner up for bodyweight moves. In addition to holding personal-trainer certifications, every boot camp instructor has undergone Access's specialized, and because classes are capped at 20 students per trainer, attendees get plenty of face time and individualized tips.

Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.
Anthony Boss didn't notice his physical health until he was 17, but once he did, he spent a year shedding nearly 50 pounds. That was when his love for fitness took hold, and he became passionate about helping others undergo his transformation. Today, he and his team of instructors lead students of all fitness levels through intense boot-camp classes designed to help boost metabolism and burn fat.
