At Snap Fitness’ 24-hour gym, guests come and go armed with their access keys and are able to work out at their convenience. Around the gym, rows of cardio machines and stacks of free weights stand by as personal trainers show guests the most efficient ways to pump iron and bench-press their old refrigerators.
Body4Change’s fleet of experienced instructors helps guests to liquidize fat with boot camps and personal-training sessions, structuring all workouts around resistance training, cardiovascular exercise, and nutrition. During boot camps, the trainers provide a no-nonsense environment in which guests focus on a different set of muscles each day, rotating between legs, arms, and second sets of arms to avoid body burnout and muscle ennui. They'll also customize workout stratagems in personal-training sessions that equip exercisers with moves tailored to individual goals and abilities.
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.
Even if you switch between running forwards and backwards, treadmill workouts can get monotonous. Luckily, that isn't the case with CrossFit West Jordan?s workouts, which, in keeping with the CrossFit tradition, change daily. During one session, someone might swing a sledgehammer through the air; during another, they might flip a tire end over end, then take a rewarding nap inside of it. The end goal remains the same, though?to build rippling muscle and amp up cardio strength.
Helmed by owner and lead trainer Mathew Gover, EXL Fitness’s muscle mavens whip participants into shape during four weeks of intensive, yet beginner-friendly boot camps that work in conjunction with nutrition plans and at-home programs. New campers are first introduced to the program during a 90-minute orientation, where participants of all body types learn about proper warm-up methods and the season’s latest spandex trends. Then, trainers lead teams through metabolic-burgeoning workouts that employ the use of medicine balls, kettlebells, and free weights. With a multifaceted focus on injury prevention, at-home nutrition, cardio health, and personal accountability, the four-week course is designed to help participants tone physiques and master Jesse Ventura impersonations in a timely fashion. Boot camps with a strength-training emphasis are held on Monday, Wednesdays, and Fridays at 6 a.m., 7 a.m., and 5:30 p.m. while cardio-focused camps are held on Tuesday and Thursdays at 6:30 a.m., 7 a.m., and 6 p.m. EXL Fitness also offers a course exclusively for women at 9 a.m. daily.
