As she struggled to surmount issues with her own weight, Boogie Box Fitness creator Dede Barbanti drew from her professional dance background, martial-arts training, and enthusiasm for exercise to pioneer the gym's rigorous yet fun workout routine. The calorie-flaming moves, which have been featured by Dr. Oz and publications such as Dance magazine, have since spawned BBX Kids and the more vigorous BBX Hardcore. Behind the regimens' popularity lie easy-to-follow steps culled from kickboxing, strength training, plyometrics, and Latin and hip-hop dance. In addition to motivating patrons to shimmy into fitter physiques, Dede channels her expertise as a certified personal trainer and sports nutritionist into the BBX Body membership site. Here, visitors can peruse custom menu plans, exercise tutorials, and life-coaching advice given by the world's smartest biceps.

The gym’s classic boxing program is broken into separate sessions for kids and adults of any skill level, and cardio-kickboxing classes are strictly focused on building overall fitness.

The key to Fit Body Life Training Center isn't a piece of workout equipment or a class—it's an algorithm. Head trainer Khoi Nguyen created the calculation for his signature My Fit Body Life program, which tabulates the number of calories, proteins, carbohydrates, and fats each exerciser needs to consume in order to meet their fitness goals, whether it's losing 10 pounds or gaining 100 pounds of triceps muscle. Complementing the algorithm are other preworkout services such as ultrasound-aided body composition tests that can measure the thickness of fatty tissue. It's not all science and numbers, though. Once exercisers are ready to work out, Khoi and his staff offer everything from kickboxing and yin yoga classes to personal training and intense 30-minute Les Mills Grit classes.
