CrossFit Sandy introduces exercisers to its blend of athletic, military, and other strength-and-conditioning disciplines with a tiered system of classes. CrossFit espouses a highly scalable set of skills to accommodate all fitness levels irrespective of prior experience or dumbbell certifications. Passionate trainers begin by guiding new pupils through Foundations sessions scheduled Monday–Friday mornings, which acclimate fresh bodies to the movements integral to CrossFit, as well as offering initial nutritional guidance. After three of the 45-minute intro sessions, exercisers will have pushed through progressively intense workouts and receive a degree to pursue graduate-level vitality in the general CrossFit classes.
With machines set up in rows to encourage competition, many ordinary gyms cater to men's bodies and psychology, right down to the urinals that were "accidentally" installed in the women's locker room. At Curves, you'll move around a circuit of hydraulic resistance machines that have been designed to work with women's bodies and promote weight loss, protect against osteoporosis, and deal with arthritis. An experienced trainer is always nearby to help manage your machine maneuvering and your muscle making. Instead of fiddling with weight stacks and losing your momentum, the hydraulic machines use your body weight and fitness level to create resistance that matches your abilities, decreasing the risk of soreness or injury. Because traditional lift-and-lower motions create bulky muscles, each machine uses push-and-pull motions to create toned, lean muscles perfect for crushing a grapefruit without looking like you can.

The one-month membership provides participants with a plethora of group training classes and a choice between OZone's two training programs.

The Power Tone program gives each participant specialized attention and feedback as they chart courses through strength training and cardiovascular exercises. The OZone training program addresses the fitness needs of young athletes from 5 to 18 years old, grouped according to age and knowledge of 1990s TGIF sitcom lineups. Professional trainers supervise all classes, and OZone members can track their progress by keeping and comparing daily workout results with other members.
Unlike the competitive environment of a testosterone-stuffed gym or mixed-martial hopscotch tournament, women's boot camp encourages all ages, skill levels, and abilities to motivate each other in a comfortable group setting. Salt Lake Adventure's certified trainers constantly challenge participants to achieve higher levels of fitness. Classes take you through a variable variety of body-blasting, calorie-pulverizing exercises, including core conditioning, short-distance running, hiking, and obstacle courses. You'll get a nutrition seminar and fitness assessments at the start and end of camp so that you can track your progress.
Jess Thomas, the mastermind behind the military-style boot camps at Bootcamp with Jess and Company, draws inspiration from his US Army and law enforcement careers, striving to shock patrons into making life-changing decisions about their health with his high-intensity "no pain, no gain" fitness philosophy. Bootcamp with Jess and Company’s five locations resound with emphatic and loud positive encouragement given by Jess's troupe of fatigues-sporting instructors.
The boot camps commence with a five-day “hell week,” in which guests strap on 30-pound vests and perform weight-training, agility, and endurance exercises. Throughout their physical trials, patrons learn about the body's muscle groups and how to wrestle the exercise machines into submission long enough to complete a workout. At the end of "hell week," students honor their hard work during a graduation ceremony, where they shed their weighted vests and have their measurements taken to mark their starting statistics before embarking on their six-week fitness journey. Boot camps are complemented by nutritional guidance, ensuring that all parts of the body are taken care of and patrons take a well-rounded approach to their wellness.
