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.

This is an honest review, which is why I will include photos so you can see for yourself proof of our conversations. I will be detailed and objective. Telling it like it is, I am not the type to sugar coat anything. (This will be a longer review.) When I first met Danielle I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt despite her appearance. I had recently moved to HB and was looking for a personal trainer. She reached out to me on Thumbtack and based off her reviews and price ($30 a session) I thought I'd giver her a shot. Upon meeting Danielle, I was taken aback as her photos on Thumbtack are a misrepresentation of what she really looks like (she is overweight). This made me uncomfortable as I think most people would like a trainer who is relatively fit. I still stayed for the consultation. She is certified and seems knowledgeable. So I decided for her price point it wouldn't hurt to try it out for a month. We trained once, and then my next two sessions I cancelled . Once because I got out the hair salon too late and the other time because my boyfriend was visiting from out of town. (I did lose money for these sessions) yet I didn't mind because I knew that's how it works. When we were scheduled to meet next she had to cancel due to a fever. That's fine but what BOTHERS me is her ATTITUDE. She didn't even apologize for cancelling our session an hour before. When rescheduling she offered me to train on Saturday I told her I could make 6 a.m. but she said the gym doesn't open until 7 a.m. I told her I couldn't make it because I had to start work at the chiropractic office at 8:30 a.m. Then when we were trying to schedule for the following week she was being difficult and doing very little to be accommodating. I understand we all have busy schedules but her communication through text is apathetic. When I told her we are not a good match and I'd like a refund for the remainder of our session she became indignant. Instead of apologizing and trying to negotiate she became defensive and told me she would not give me a refund, bu that I could complete my sessions with her. I told her I would just take the loss and explained to her why I thought she was apathetic and unresponsive. She could have had loyal client that trained with her monthly but unfortunately she ruined that opportunity with her behavior. Listen, I am a skeptical person and usually trust my gut. I should've known $30 a session was a red flag. Really think if saving $10-$20 a session is worth having a trainer who is difficult to work with and is inconsiderate to her clients. I expected more, but maybe that was my mistake for her price point. It's no surprise why she charges much less than other trainers in the area. Words of advice; You can expect clients to be emotional but if you're in the service industry it's highly important to not get emotional and stay professional at all times. Word of mouth, referrals, and reviews are everything. It takes years to build a reputation and only seconds to destroy it. So important to always leave on a good note even if things didn't work out.
