Health-centric trainers whittle the widths of coed pupils over four weeks, instilling motivation through group camaraderie and staged readings of the wartime speeches from Winston Churchill. Each outdoor class presents a new routine, but aspiring athletes can expect to face a myriad of styles incorporated, including weight training, circuit training, stretching, and military-inspired drills. Designed to prevent the body from adapting to the workout, the varied regimen helps students plow through the plateaus and muscle-blocking mesas that plague other traditional exercise programs.

After years of research and exercise, Dr. John Spencer Ellis felt he'd hit upon a premium fitness formula for producing athletes. Inviting Kelli Calabrese, a master trainer, to help him develop a curriculum, the two pooled their exercise knowledge—which amounted to 45 years of industry experience and 35 fitness, nutrition, and lifestyle certifications. From this wealth of training and education, they created Intense Mixed Performance Accelerated Cross Training, or IMPACT Fitness Boot Camp.
Their formula requires that each workout begin with a sports-conditioning-style dynamic warm-up, before proceeding into speed, agility, and quickness training, which allows patrons to more effectively chase cars down the highway. They then challenge students with full-body-strength conditioning, which focuses on all the muscles versus only the muscle group you want to train, and a high-intensity session of cardio training. Though the formula always remains the same, the exercises vary from session to session. One day, patrons might heave medicine balls and sprints, the next, they might jump rope and stretch TRX bands.
