They are told which areas they need to improve in and where their strengths lie. They also train for the fights by working on conditioning and endurance. Friday is known as fight night. Each week one fighter from each team is picked to fight in their weight class. The winner gets to stay in the house and continue to train for their goal. The loser of the fight has to go home.
