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.

Reviews for Long Beach boot camp instructors
Thumbtack Customer
I signed up on April 14, 2014. That was the worst mistake of my life. Don't sign up with this company or trainer. Emile has great marketing skills and will convince you to sign up. He gives you these false promises that I am going to check in on you. I am going to make sure we work together, but in reality He just wants your money. I am a nurse, so I strongly believe that professionalism and integrity is the most important attribute to a person and there business. This business does not have that attribute. I have been having questions about my contract, and no one answers the phone. I mean I called Emile's personal cell phone. He sent me to voice mail then sent me a text message. When I sent him a text message letting him know that I needed clarity, he did not respond. If someone was charging your credit card, don't you think they would call you and clarify and address your concerns? This is by far the worst experience I have ever had with a trainer. Don't fall for their lies, go to a trainer that really cares for you and follows through with your concerns. I usually would NEVER leave a review, but I am so disgusted with their business practices that I do not want anyone else to fall victim to this mess. If you do decide to try them, Ask for a free workout, and that will definitely change your mind about joining. It's a small studio with too many people and virtually you all are doing the same thing but at different times. It's called circuit training but trust me you could do a boot camp that would be just as effective and cheaper. Also, if you don't have time to watch all the videos online about how to work out and everything else, then you are wasting your time, or better yet, buy the Insanity tape for a one-time fee, it's probably more effective too. Don't waste your time, your money, or energy with this place. I would recommend Dynamic Fitness in Long Beach. They have a great trainer that really cares about you and comes through with their promises and expectations. HORRIBLE PLACE!
