The Maze Runner
Objective = complete the bottom row
Give each person a color beforehand and have them keep it a secret so nobody cheats. (they should not see this color coded sheet below)
Each person chooses an exercise in the first row. After they are done they come to you and tell you the exercise they completed and their color. If it matches your sheet they move onto the next row. If it does not match your sheet, they go back and complete one of the three remaining exercises in that row. They continue doing this until they find the correct path (color and exercise) to the next row.
Once they complete all rows have them run on the treadmill until the rest of the class finishes.
Have a cutoff time of 30 mins.

I’m an instructor at my local gym in Annapolis, Maryland. I’ve been teaching a bootcamp, treading, and Insanity class for 4 years now. My bootcamp class I normally have anywhere from 25-50 clients 5 days a week. We’ll stay indoors during the winter and head outside when the weather is nicer.
