The women inside the FEMforce boxing ring might throw hundreds of punches, but they aren't fighting each other. They're too busy sweating through kickboxing routines side by side, which is the same way they perform push-ups, box jumps, and kettlebell lifts. Their collective determination fuels the female-only boot-camp session, even though they might all be pursuing different goals. Some hope to lose weight, whereas others want to tone their arms, or develop flat, hard abs without having to ingest a hardcover dictionary.
The path to these achievements begins with a private physical assessment. During this time, one of coach Lucas's fitness consultants meets with each camper to determine what particular challenges she'll face and what results she desires. Students then tackle the fitness regimen at their own pace, modifying it as they go if need be.

Members push through CrossFit routines both inside and outdoors, completing obstacle courses that include everything from tire flips to sled pushes. Workouts also rotate daily, ensuring that muscles never tire of strength, cardio, and endurance routines that might include everything from situps and jump rope sessions to box jumps and burpees. Rob and his trainers aim for a healthy balance between guiding individuals and fostering teamwork, often reminding recruits that "we can't make you want it, but we can help you get there."

Over the past 18 years, Nicole Hernandez—a permanent-makeup artist—has rubbed elbows with seasoned physicians and plastic surgeons. That's partly because surgeons can't shake hands after they've washed them. But it's also because Nicole is a licensed artist who brings definition to clients' features in a sanitary studio stocked with anesthetics and supplies. She tends to everyday cosmetic concerns by lining eyes and filling in brows, but she also has experience covering up scars and improving the look of skin after reconstructive surgery. To complement newly enhanced appearances, she can tint lashes, wax facial hair, and henna eyebrows.
