There are several military-style boot camps in Tennessee.

Military-style boot camps offer those who attend a highly structured and often very strict environment. Mainly, those who are sent to boot camps have a very defiant nature, or are looking for a positive life transformation, such as weight loss. Others attend these boot camps because of incarceration in the criminal justice system. Through this strict atmosphere, including interaction with a drill instructor, these camps seek to help those who participate \"get back on track,\" so to speak, offering both security and structure to accomplish this goal. There are several military-style boot camps in the state of Tennessee.

Transformations 4 Life

Transformations 4 Life is a military-style boot camp located in Murfreesboro, Tennessee. A fitness-oriented boot camp, it utilizes military-style routines to help its participants relieve stress and lose weight. Campers range from all ages, from 18-63, and boot camp classes usually clock in at about 30-45 minutes. While their boot camps are not advertised as \"hardcore\"—they forgo negative feedback—they do offer strict structure to help camp attendees maintain and accomplish their goals. A twelve-week online nutrition program is also offered.
