You have so many different options. If you want to change your interval times, you can do just about anything from Tabatas (20 seconds work, 10 rest—8 rounds for 4 minutes) to 30, 45, or 60 seconds of work and your choice of rest period. You can insert a “theme” into any one of those. Leg day, upper body day, etc…
Try different pieces of equipment–or maybe just one piece of equipment for the day.
Also, check here on IDEA for some great ideas for your classes.
Hope this helps.
Our clients LOVE doing partner work. We will do a circuit where they each do one exercise for an allotted time, then they switch, or one jumps rope while the other does an exercise.
Bootcampers also LOVE GAMES! WE do relays, Tag, The train run-where they get into a line and hold onto the persons shoulder in front and they all start running.
Hello Jalynn Brown,
We do a lot of what Sue suggests: the games and partner drills are great fun for all; we even incorporate tug-of-war. You could have an express class to save time while changing things up and have a free time portion for the client to do as they wish, a follow-the-leader session where a participant does a move that everyone else does and set up obstacle courses with pieces of equipment set up strategically.
The sky is the limit; go wild with your imagination; but, in a safe way.

In addition to what everyone else mentioned, you can try to alternate between upper and lower body exercises. For an added twist you can superset using one isotonic exercise and one isometric exercise i.e. crunches followed by plank. Using a timer keeps everyone on task and keeps your rotations uniform regardless of the interval you choose. Hope this helps.
