Frank W. says, "Over the past ten years, my wife, Anita, and I have dealt with five personal trainers—all of them highly qualified. We would recommend all of them to anyone who wants help from a professional to get back into or stay in shape. But Dr. Hannah Caldas is, hands down, the best trainer we have ever encountered. Not only is she a highly accomplished athlete but she is also a trained neuroscientist with two life changing patents under her belt. She is also the best person that we have ever encountered who knows how to work with older people to build strength, endurance, flexibility, and better breathing. For breathing, she uses techniques from postural restoration, a unique type of physical therapy that addresses the body's postural position and the potential muscular imbalances which lead to pain. Through this process, Dr. Caldas, homes in on the relationship of various parts of Anita’s body to the diaphragm and rib cage. This is an important aspect of the sessions as Anita is 87 years old and has COPD. Her doctors have marveled at the degree of muscle mass improvement in areas around her rib cage (and in her arms) and how all of this has improved her breathing. For walking and strength, Dr. Caldas uses kinesis therapy. Anita suffered from major yoga and walking related injuries. Dr. Caldas’s work with respect to walking and strength building has gone a long way toward helping her walk, finally, without her walker or a cane! There is also the traditional, or classical, strength building (i.e., weightlifting) approaches that Anita’s sessions take, which are helping to retrain her movement patterns and mechanics. Finally, I should say that there is (so far) no such thing as a medical question or a workout question that Dr. Hannah Caldas (a) can’t answer and/or (b) has not encountered and solved. She’s truly amazing. Her sessions are worth every penny."See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a boot camp class?

Fitness boot camps are a heart-pounding way to boost your fitness level. Boot camps are led by a fitness instructor and are based on the concept of military boot camps — intensive workout programs to get new recruits into shape, quickly. Fitness boot camps encourage camaraderie, and the group momentum helps participants get through fast-paced intervals of cardio, isometric training, strength training and endurance drills. Classes may range anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and usually meet multiple days per week. Boot camps often run a specific duration of time, say four to six weeks, which creates a team-like environment for class members. Other boot camps run year-round and students purchase package pricing for classes, similar to subscriptions that allow them a set amount of classes per week or per month.

Boot camps can be held indoors at a gym, outdoors in a park or on a beach, in a backyard — anywhere there’s room for running, jumping and sweating. Some instructors also provide DVD and online boot camps. You can also find boot camps tailored to your heart’s desire, such as bikini boot camp, or boot camps for new mothers. Boot camps offer an intense workout and are usually led by energetic instructors pushing you to do your best, but unlike military boot camp drill sergeants, fitness boot camp instructors typically don’t use intimidation or punishment to spur you on. Check with your doctor before starting a boot camp if you have health concerns, and always let your instructor know ahead of time if you have injuries.

How much is a boot camp?

The cost of fitness boot camps depends on how often you go, the package you are purchasing (or if you are paying a drop-in fee), the location of the bootcamp, the equipment the instructors provide, and the background and reputation of the instructor. Smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living typically have lower rates for boot camp services than big cities and regions with a higher cost of living. If you’re paying per class on a drop-in basis, expect to pay anywhere from $12 to $25 or more, depending on the region and the instructor. When you purchase a package of classes, typically the more you buy at one time, the cheaper each class is. The same boot camp class might be $20 for a drop-in student, $15 for a student who pays for 10 classes per month, and $10 for a student who pays for 30 classes a month. Studio space can also affect costs, so if your boot camp takes place in a high-end gym with top-of-the-line equipment, the prices will likely be higher than a class that meets in an outdoor space with limited or no equipment. Shop around to find the right type of boot camp class and the right instructor for you.
