The trainers behind Look Good Naked aim to get people comfortable in their skin. They have a slew of shared resources, such as nutritional guides, progressive measurements, and a weekly newsletter filled with exercising facts, meal ideas, ongoing coaching and support, and testimonials from clients. All these augment the core of the operation—the 12-week boot camps where both trainers and fellow students repurpose the benches, jungle gyms, and stairways of parks and public spaces during four, hour-long sessions each week. The sessions teach guests a slew of functional training maneuvers that require little or no equipment, helping them not only to slim down, but build up a skill set they can carry with them as they leave the camps.
Adhering to the nationally renowned Les Mills exercise regimens, BodyRox Fitness Group's instructors lead engaging group classes that appeal to students of all fitness levels. Each class embraces a different program and addresses a different aspect of total-body fitness and wellbeing. In addition to leading sessions that use barbell squats, lifts, and curls to tone and strengthen muscles, the trainers also teach classes that incorporate high-intensity interval training to provide a dynamic cardio workout. Other workouts feature anything from karate and boxing movements to yoga and tai chi sequences. The studio also offers paid childcare services for students who attend select classes with their youngsters or sentient stuffed animals.

At Trumi, a workout encompasses more than just exercise. It also means community, nutrition, and an opportunity to be close to nature. Trainers host group sessions outdoors whenever possible, teaching students to sprint, lift, jump, and sweat their way through routines that accommodate all experience levels. They also educate students about healthy eating choices, and encourage them to bond and support each other as they progress through the 12-week curriculum. Trumi coaches also offer individualized nutritional guidance with weekly challenges to help clients achieve their personal health goals.
Apart from its standard course, Trumi has programs for different age groups. The Trumi ReNu class helps senior citizens to retain their muscle mass, while the TruYouth class strengthens teens in time for the wrestle-the-dean portion of their college interviews. Kids ages 6-12 build their motor skills during Trumi Troopers sessions, and younger children stretch with their parents as part of the Trumi Trumites program.
