12 Unique Group Fitness Class Ideas
Dead Man’s Plank: In this tough 5-minute HIT challenge, you’ll learn a secret workout technique that forces your clients to work much harder than they usually would. Overtime, this secret technique (which you can apply to any workout) will massively speed up your clients results.
Beat The Ladder: These types of challenges require players to switch on beast mode, which is why they work so well at incinerating fat and building lean muscle. Can players beat the clock in this exciting 21-minute HIT challenge? Only time will tell.
The Centurion Circuit: A centurion was a professional officer of the Roman army after the Marian reforms of 107 BC. They were known for their strength, dexterity and incredible bravery during battle. Players are to make it through this tough 40-minute circuit, they will have to embody the qualities of the centurion.
Hot 50's: A 30-minute fitness test with a cheeky twist. Focusing on muscle strength, endurance and cardiovascular conditioning. This (results driven) circuit is a complete blast and extremely satisfying to finish.
Lieutenant Colonel: In this gamified HIT challenge, there are 3 ranks (Captain, Major and Lieutenant Colonel) and a cheeky forfeit. Hard work and a lot of luck will determine each players fate. You’ll love it.
Crush Zero (Fitness Test): In this 35-minute double whack descending ladder drill, players are presented with a unique HIT challenge designed to burn fat and build muscle. The more points a player scores, the more calories burnt, meaning they’ll happily give it 100% without moaning.
Pays To Be A Winner: In this fun 30-minute partner challenge, players decide each other’s fate (by the shake of a hand) as they both embark on a unique exercise journey. This is one of my favourite drills.
The Mad Hatter Interval Challenge: You’d have to be crazy to take on this 45-minute challenge. You have 9 exercises, 9 time zones and 9 unique intervals designed to give you the most intense all body challenge your clients have ever faced. If they like a challenge, they will love this.
The 10x Travel Monster: Fixed routines are good, but sometimes it’s great to give the power back to your clients and let them choose their own workout. This 30 minute HIIT challenge is design to create a sense of involvement and belonging in your tribe. This is another secret technique for building a loyal client base that never wants to leave.
Mr Bean's HIIT Party: In a nut shell, HIIT sprints made super fun. They’ll be so busy laughing and giggling they won’t even know they’re exercising. You’ll see.

Unique Bootcamp Workouts Weekly Round Up
Each week I take the most important parts of my daily emails and condense them for your convenience. In this weeks news I'll be sharing 2 killer group fitness class ideas, plus free access to the Train The Trainer Challenge which kicks off Jan 7th.
This weeks round up.
My 15k slam ball is by far my most used piece of fitness equipment (Whats yours? Let me know in the comments). I absolutely love it.
The one I have is called a dead ball which doesn't bounce when you slam it.
I wasn't going to work out over Christmas but this workout drill popped in to my head and I had to try it. I regretted it a little bit come round 7, because I was dying.
Title: Slam Ball Cardio Crush
Complete burpees for 1 minute then slams for 1 minute x 10 rounds as fast as you can without stopping (20 minutes). Honestly, your body won't know whats hit it.
The next bootcamp drill is a bit more fun. Give it a try with your group.
Title: Complete Your Age In __________
All you have to do with this finisher drill is insert your own exercise. I.e. Burpees. I'm 37, so that would be 37 burpees. Give it a go with your group at your next training session.
If you want to make it harder you could say.."Complete your age in burpees, push ups, sit ups and squats". Even better, get your clients to write their age on a bit of paper then ask players to swap. The number players are left with they complete in burpees.
