The zombie-themed Queen Creek Running Dead 5K has a greater purpose than scaring participants into running from the undead hordes hungry for brains.

While some do chin-ups on the pull-up bars others lift barbells and swing kettlebells overhead, while still others flip enormous tractor tires from end-to-end.

The small group sizes in each class also ensures personal attention, while the functional full-body motions of the workouts ensures total body fitness.

Inside Desert Fitness' 10,000-square-foot facility, a muscled man grunts as he hefts a 200-pound barbell over his head and the sound of Latin music emanates from a group Zumba class. The rhythmic thump of runners' feet on treadmills add to the cacophony, along with the motivational encouragement coming from personal trainers. All the gym's staff members are serious about fitness, teaching classes such as group cycling, mat Pilates, and yoga in addition to providing one-on-one personal training. Desert Fitness always caters to its clientele, helping them get fit during engaging workouts. Monthly maintenance plans help exercisers stay on track, and nutritional counseling is also available for clients unable to ignore the siren call of graham-cracker teddy bears when shopping at the supermarket.
