At Boot Camp 512, the enemy is predictability. Each day, your trainers will throw down a fresh guerilla-ambush worth of challenges for your muscles and your brain, fueling constant gains and keeping you engaged. Over the course of the one-hour camps, you'll run, squat, lunge, slam out push-ups and chin-ups, juggle kettlebells, punch slabs of beef, and end with a live crocodile wrestle. At the beginning and end of each session, you’ll complete a personal-fitness assessment to help set goals and measure results.

Austin Fit Magazine named RockBody Boot Camp its Best Boot Camp of 2011 and also lauded its owner, Brian Prinzo, as one of the city’s Top 10 Fittest Trainers in 2010. But for Brian and his staff of experienced trainers, it’s not about the accolades; it’s about helping others lose weight and reach their fitness goals. Classes eschew routine courses of treadmills and bench presses for a variety of challenging workouts that put participants through a mash-up of strength, core, cardio, and interval training designed to push them to their personal limits. Best of all, the workouts provide the motivation and accountability needed to help exercisers push past plateaus, and exercises can be tailored to accommodate many fitness levels and concerns, such as arthritis, body pain, and conjoined sweatbands.
In the words of ATX Pole Fitness's staff, pole fitness "can be athletic and acrobatic, and it can be sensual and personal." In other words, it can be whatever students want it to be. At ATX Pole Fitness, the emphasis is on empowerment and individuality. Members find their own meaning in the movements, whether they want to build muscle tone, spice up their love lives, or spend time hanging out with bats in their natural habitats.
