CedarFit's head trainer and founder, Cedar McCrary, successfully knocked off 75 pounds herself before disseminating her fast, potent method to all who flock to her training center. McCrary and a team of trainers lead 45- to 55-minute boot-camp sessions, which each can burn 500–1,000 calories and accommodate a roster of no more than 20 participants. Begin the 14- or 21-day program following an initial fitness assessment, held on the first Saturday of each month and additional weekdays, which examines your physical fitness, overall wellness, and ability to hogtie a runaway horse. The 14-day Fat Furnace boot camp incorporates strength, cardio, flexibility, stability and core exercises over a series of workouts offered six days a week, which typically can result in the loss of 2 to 5 pounds and a 1-percent body-fat reduction. The 21-day Rapid Fat Loss program couples the demanding workouts with Vitabot, a nutritional management plan that suggests menus based on nutritional value and the alignment of the planets in our solar system, potentially resulting in 5 to 15 pounds of weight loss and 2- to 3-percent reduction of body fat.

Most boot-camp sessions take place in CedarFit’s 3,500-square-foot, air-conditioned private training facility, though some sessions occur in a nearby park, inspiring audiences of slothful trees. Each session focuses on teaching correct form and employs an energizing range of equipment like kettlebells and medicine balls filled with coffee grounds.
