What does it take to make a fitness class hardcore? At Hardcore Fitness Boot Camp, the answer is an intense, 60-minute workout held during the work week, since treadmills often refuse to work on the weekends. Instructors start with static stretching and other warm-ups before explaining the proper technique for exercises with barbells, kettlebells, treadmills, and stationary cycles. They might also have groups run a few miles, though exercisers can never quite be sure what to expect. Instructors constantly change the format of the workout from day to day to avoid fitness plateaus. In addition to this signature boot-camp class, the fitness instructors lead other classes such as Cardio Kickbox Fusion.
