Many of the students at Train. Fight. Win. Tallahassee come because they're preparing for a competition—a boxing match, say, or an MMA fight. But you don't have to have any intention of stepping into the ring to gain from the classes, since many promise health benefits that are valuable to anyone. The conditioning courses, for instance, help students build strength and endurance through pull-ups, pushups, and tire flips, and cardio boxing classes raise the heart rate with punching drills and other exercises. Personal trainers push clients to the next level, whether they wish to lose fat, gain muscle, or develop the endurance to read War and Peace without stopping to catch their breath.
Named after the Australian slang for “have a go,” the Avago Mud Run encourages each runner to have a go at a mud-ridden 5K obstacle course. The path is peppered with myriad obstacles ranging from a tire wall and farmer's walk to a hay mountain and mystery challenges. All obstacles are optional; however, runners who don’t complete an obstacle will not be eligible for final placement. Unlike Karl Malone’s birthday shindig, the after party is open to everyone and entertains the masses with live music and beer as they clean up and party down. A portion of all proceeds goes to benefit the Big Bend Homeless Coalition.

LimeTime Fitness boasts rows of great equipment—including Cybex treadmills, spin bikes, and TRX Suspension Training—and a friendly staff on hand to teach patrons how to use the equipment properly. Like the Hulk’s interior-design scheme, all the gyms have a purple-and-green color motif, adding pops of vibrant color to the free-weight-lined facilities. Students in each LimeTime class receive a heart rate monitor so that they can keep track of calorie-burn count and learn how to stay in their targeted fat-burning zone to maximize fitness results.
Though Champ's small stature doesn't allow him to lend a helping paw in the gym that is named after him, his owner Tristan Owens pushes students through vigorous exercise regimens to help them reach their physical goals at Champion's Health & Fitness.
