  • Camp Gladiator Dallas
    An intensive four-week exercise regimen crafted by certified personal trainer Ally Davidson guarantees speedy results and sweat-addled brows for campers across the fitness spectrum. Ally?s local boot-camp staff sends muscles on a brisk march toward a firmer condition six days a week, helming total-body workouts that include interval training, plyometrics, and an abs-twisting assortment of timed strength and agility drills. The staff regularly switches up workout regimens to ensure that muscles don't become as bored as nihilists in a bounce house. Aware that not all recruits have the same motives for joining their flab-busting brigade, trainers customize their workouts to squeeze the best results from bodies of all ages and fitness abilities. The camp schedule varies based on location, with four early-morning camps to awaken muscles stuck on snooze and a pair of evening sessions to end the day on a note of high endorphins.

  • MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass
    The inspiring trainers at each MetaBody location lead troops of workouteers in results-oriented workouts several times weekly. Sweat sessions utilize a variety of exercises and disciplines to produce full-body results in a supportive environment, ideal for beginners and hard-core core-hardeners alike. During any class, motivational instructors will use the instinctual distrust of routine to their advantage. Begin a day of litigating with a refreshing early-morning boot-camp session, or wind down by burning evidence and pounds with a late-evening yoga class. Muscles are kept guessing with new and challenging moves during each session, so participants never fall into a boring, ineffective routine, such as regular teeth brushing. In addition to the fitness classes, students receive a success guide to help prepare for imminent pound loss, a nutrition guide, and a $100 gift certificate for individual coaching. Because the pass sets a 10-class cap at any given location, roving fitness mavens can further shake up their workout regimens by vetting a series of classes or instructors that work best for them.

  • DFW Zombie Run
    In order to escape a pack of zombies, it’s helpful to know the strengths and weaknesses of each cannibal in the horde. DFW Zombie Run equips its participants with this type of knowledge, as well as the training that may be necessary for survival in the unlikely event of a zombie apocalypse. During DFW Zombie Run’s obstacle runs, four types of zombies chase down racers, trying to snag the four health flags worn on the racers’ belts. Among zombies, there are walkers, who “simply walk around looking for an easy meal,” and then there are runners, who are “starving, ferocious, and incredibly fast,” according to the site. Transition zombies occupy the middle ground: they may look like harmless, sleep-deprived milkmaids, but can be unexpectedly triggered to hunt viciously like their runner brethren. Finally, there are creepers who lurk in narrow spaces. As runners traverse 3K, 5K, or 7K obstacle courses, they dodge all types of zombies in a quest to keep their health flags and gain eligibility for cash prizes. Zombies and racers only interact via flag—there’s no other touching allowed. Zombies are limited to snagging one flag per runner, and runners are limited to using their feet and hands for locomotion. According to founder Jeff, a passion for “amusement parks, thrill rides, and fitness” inspired the creation of DFW Zombie Run. He also cited “a love for action, adventure, and horror movies.”

  • Urban Assault Ride Minneapolis
    The first Urban Assault Race invaded the city of Austin more than a decade ago, back in 2003. Don't be fooled by the war-like name, though. As Austin residents were the first to find out, the bike obstacle race is a physical challenge on par with a bootcamp?but more than that, it's fun. Here are three reasons why. The race is a puzzle. There's no official route?instead, race checkpoints are scattered across the city, and teams must find the most efficient route between them. Winner are often cunning, and good at biking through hedges without leaving a hole. Bikers encounter wacky obstacles along the way. In the past, racers have undertaken the hybrid sports?bike jousting and bike limbo, for instance?when they weren't throwing themselves down inflatable slip 'n' slides. There's a backyard BBQ-style afterparty. Racers 21 and older can sip free beers at the fresh air festivities?and the free swag doesn't stop there. Every racer heads home with a limited-edition race t-shirt to commemorate the event.

  • Dead4Life 5k Zombie Mud Run
    The D4L 5K Zombie Mud Run challenges its participants to think the unthinkable: “Could I survive a zombie apocalypse?” Throughout the 5K mud-slicked course, only the savviest runners will maintain their humanity, dodging hordes of the undead and navigating strength- and agility-testing obstacles. Runners start with three flags that represent their life force. Those who can keep at least one flag safe from the zombies’ corpsey clutches remain human, and those who lose them all make the harrowing transformation into a brain-hungry zombie. But the D4L 5K Zombie Mud Run is more than a grueling race; it’s also an attempt to set the Guinness World Record for the largest zombie gathering on Earth. After the race, every participant’s name is entered in a drawing for the grand prize—a trip for two to Las Vegas—and event hosts dole out speed prizes to those with at least one flag remaining. Zombies also compete for a set of undead awards and strut very, very slowly in a zombie beauty pageant.

  • Run or Dye
    Run or Dye is making race running a little more colorful, one major city at a time. This 5K is divided up into four separate courses of varying lengths, each designated by a separate color?which also reflects the color of safe, eco-friendly powered dye the participants get splashed with. At the end of the race, they'll cross into the aptly named Dye Zone?a polychromatic free-for-all where fluorescent color is thrown freely from all sides, allowing runners to splash their fellow runners or get colorful revenge on their friends, family members, and any cranky art-history teachers that happen to be walking by. Unlike some races that rank runners by time, Run or Dye only measures success in color and fun. While the safe-to-eat dyes should wash out of clothing, runners are encouraged to wear things they don't mind getting dirty, preferably in white, gray, or another neutral color to give the dyes maximum visibility.
