Though popular for some time at most gyms, the typical boot-camp class rarely has an actual soldier leading the charge. Not so at 7 Fitness, where active and nonactive military personnel put participants through their paces using a results-oriented blend of plyometrics, body-weight resistance, and cardio exercises. Athletes supplement their workouts with kickboxing classes, yoga offerings, sports-specific training classes, and one-on-one personal-training sessions.
Kickboxing classes deliver a knee to the face of fat, burning up to 860 calories an hour with the high-energy striking moves of martial arts and boxing.

Hitting the heavy bags won't skin your knuckles once you don the included boxing gloves, which also double as excellent spring-loaded props for re-creating Three Stooges gags. Class times and dates vary based on location.
