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.

I would highly recommend Devin as a personal trainer for his commitment, knowledge, approach and professionalism. Devin is great at creating tailored workouts for your personal goals and also correcting your form to get the maximum results. I have been working out with Devin now for almost 3 months and have seen body fat percentage go down, my clothes are fitting better and I have more muscle definition. He keeps the workouts fun and they go by so quick when you are having a great conversation and laughing. I would definitely recommend Devin to anyone looking for a personal trainer and to accomplish goals that are set on day one of your personal wellness/fitness journey.

I've had a number of personal trainers before. When I relocated to San Diego, I knew I wanted to work with a trainer who would tailor to me, not put me on their canned program. Markshane offered a consultation (which included a workout and fitness assessment) that lasted almost 90 minutes, and addressed all my concerns. Now that we've trained together for a week, I feel I made the right decision moving foward with him.

Markshane is awesome. Great energy and as much as I was looking for a place to get personal training for my fitness goals I didn’t expect to find such a great place! Very personable, knowledgeable, polite and motivating through a workout. Looking forward to my next workouts at Shape Up Studio!

I have been training with Armin for almost three months now, and he has been AWESOME! I could tell that he really cares about his clients and their fitness journey just based on the quick consultation we had at the beginning, but also through these months training with him. He definitely challenges you with workouts, but never pushes you over your limit at any given time, and makes sure you build up to each workout/weight. I’ve had previous experiences with other personal trainers before Armin, and I think what makes him special is that he really cares about not only your fitness journey and meeting your fitness goals, but also your overall health including your mental health. While he’s very organized and professional, he is also super friendly and makes every workout session fun! I have never really been the person to look forward to workouts, but through sessions with Armin, I really started looking forward to each session and even workouts outside of sessions. I highly recommend Armin as a personal trainer to anyone considering getting a trainer!

Working with Lindsey was an awesome experience. I found her from San Diego Magazine in their article “20 Best Personal Trainers in San Diego” ( ). In just 4 weeks, she helped me lose body fat and a few inches off of my body. If you’re a beginner in the gym, Lindsey is the perfect trainer for you. She’s created an environment filled with positivity that will boost your confidence in the gym. The Underground Fitness community has people on similar journeys that uplift and support you as well. Definitely worth the very affordable prices!

Manuel Gutierrez is a highly effective and dedicated trainer. He communicates and trains with the utmost of professionalism and courtesy. During our training sessions he offers support and uplifting communication but does not push me beyond my physical limits or make me feel like I’m not giving enough effort. I never had a personal trainer before Manual, but he made it very easy and comfortable to discuss my goals and created a plan to map out how we would get there. I have been training with him for almost two months now and can say with full confidence that it’s one of the best decisions I’ve made. If 2020 put a damper on your fitness routine or wellness path, please consider contacting Manuel! He will work just as hard as you to help you achieve your fitness goals!

Definitely an excellent Personal Trainer.

It is a genuine pleasure and honor to recommend and provide a reference for M.I.S. Cassandra Fitness (Cassandra) as a personal trainer. Cassandra provides training for my two children, ages 10 & 11, and on occasion, I would join a training session as well. Being very goal-oriented as well as a considerate person, Cassandra is always punctual, yet flexible, depending on the changing needs of the kids. She is keenly devoted to her work, but also a real people person and she is enjoyable to be around; she is well organized and strives to learn more for the betterment of her clients. Without exception, Cassandra puts training priorities first, knowing that the key to accomplishing better fitness is consistency, good habits and following up, among other wonderful traits. Cassandra puts forth the extra effort to ensure both children thoroughly participate and she enjoys being an active part of the workout sessions. She even visited my son’s karate studio, to better tailor his workouts! I have found Cassandra to be caring and diligent in the training of the kids, a true blessing. I feel confident she will be an asset to any person’s training program (regardless of your age) and improve your overall health and conditioning. In closing, let me say I have complete faith in recommending Cassandra for any and all of your personal training needs!

Love going to underground fitness and working with Lindsey! The atmosphere she has created in her gym is just unmatched. This is my first time working with a personal trainer and she made me feel so welcomed and accepted, making the process super easy! She is super motivating and always pushing you to work your hardest and help you become a better you!

Rich was great! This was my first experience with a personal trainer, but he made it all way less scary. He showed that he genuinely cared about my fitness goals and me as a person as well during our workout sessions. He taught me a lot about not only the exercise, but also the nutrition aspects of healthy living as well. He is very knowledgeable about what he does. I would highly recommend Rich.

I’ve tried it all; weight watchers, fasting, working out on my own, and using other “personal trainers”. Noticed how I put quotations around personal trainers? The personal trainers I used in the past never payed attention to my form during workouts, never really spotted me during difficult weight training, didn’t explain what muscles were being used during certain workouts, and worst of all they were constantly on their phone. Nick is a LEGIT personal trainer. If you’re the type of person who needs the extra support in your fitness journey then Nick is the one for you. From nutrition to exercise Nick is right there beside you every step of the way. I can always count on Nick to ensure I workout correctly and safely and most of all he pays attention and offers tremendous amount of motivation. Nick has been able to sense (without me saying too much) that I feel discouraged during workouts and on numerous occasions Nick has given me the best pep talks to get me back on track. Nick is extremely laid back and is always smiling with a positive attitude no matter what. I HATED any type of exercise before meeting Nick, now I’m so excited to get into the gym and set PRs (personal records). I’ve worked with Nick for only 7 weeks and I’m already seeing amazing results. At my first weigh in (the four week mark) I lost a total of 4 inches off my waist and lost a total of 12 pounds!!! I’m so happy to have found Nick because I’m so excited to continue to develop this new lifestyle with his help.

I am not sure where to start because there are so many things I like and appreciate when it comes to working with Michael. I have worked with a few other personal trainers and know that engaging a personal trainer is a commitment. They become very involved in your life and goals, so it is important to find a good one that suits your specific style and needs. I can confidently say Michael is a good one. He is reliable, knowledgeable, professional, and a genuinely fabulous person to know. I have been beyond satisfied with the results I have seen since working with Michael, and those results go far beyond our weekly sessions. He inspires improvements in all areas on my journey towards health, fitness, and longevity. I look forward to my continued work with Michael and sincerely recommend his services.

Looovvee Markshane and shape up!! I haven't worked on my fitness since high school. I kinda even forgotten how to do it. I tried personal training before but they weren't very motivated to help me, they seemed more interested in their already fit clients. Very discouraging. My experience w Markshane has been so different! He is very compassionate and u can tell he realm loves helping people out and works w you to reach your goals. He is very thorough and very patient. Corrects your positions and encourages u to keep pushing yourself and he makes it in a way that makes u feel good about yourself! There are many different people w different fitness levels at shape up so u don't feel self conscious at all. I signed up for 3mo of 1on1 training and very excited!! C u Monday Markshane!!

Tom is awesome! He has taught me so much about physical fitness as well as what sort of nutrition I should be putting into my body. He completely changed how I look at food and nutrition. I am so much more mindful of what I eat now. And I feel amazing! Before I met with Tom, I was always so tired and lethargic, especially after meals. And I don't even have kids yet!! Once I started training with Tom, he enlightened me with his vast knowledge of health and fitness. Now I am just so much more aware. He's great! Very patient, but gets the job done! He's the best out there!!! Don't hesitate to choose him as your personal trainer!

I started working with Candon almost two years now and it has proven to be an amazing investment. He is a very professional and knowledgeable trainer in both physical fitness and nutrition. When I started working with Candon he was super flexible with my workout routine and fitness goals; I was newly pregnant and he was able to work with me throughout my pregnancy and beyond. One of the many reasons to choose a personal trainer is that they can watch how you exercise and tweak your posture/movements/etc to better tone your muscles and create a fitness routine so that you actually see results! Candon customizes your plan to fit you as well as push you to be better. He is fantastic at what he does and I am stronger because of it! Candon is always looking for ways to change things up and keep the workout interesting; I’m always super energized after our sessions! Candon is super flexible with scheduling around peoples’ busy lives. He also creates routines for you to do outside of your sessions with him. He is very encouraging and has become a good friend! I can’t say enough about him! He is the best.

Lauren Wise is easily the best investment you’ll ever spend on your body. This year -in preparation for my wedding- I hired Lauren for one on one personal training sessions 2-3x a week. When I interviewed Lauren I was immediately impressed with her professionalism and kindness. Her assessment included information on my dietary habits, daily exercise routines, my favorite body parts…and those in need of most improvement, and finally my overall goals within our specified time frame. Once deciding we were a good fit- she took my “before” measurements and pictures… came up with a diet plan, put me on an app to monitor my eating, and created a workout regimen to fit my schedule. During sessions Lauren comes completely prepared with tailored handwritten work outs for your needs. She encourages you to when you are struggling and motivates you when you feel like giving up. I’ve had many personal trainers and they all pale in comparison to Lauren Wise. Do yourself a favor and seek Lauren’s services. 5 out of 5 stars. -Suzanne D

After months and months of researching trying to find the best fit for my personal training needs, I finally found Zack! Zack has been my personal trainer for almost a month now and I am getting closer to my goals, which are; leaner, stronger and to have better diet! Zack is a quality personal trainer - he will listen to your goals and will work around it, he pays very close attention to your progress, he is very attentive to your form and most importantly your body. In addition to working my tail off, he provides nutritional coaching (he is a certified nutrition coach) to ensure that the work I put in the gym doesn't go to waste because of bad eating habits. Oh, mind you, i still get to eat ice cream, but he's recommended alternatives to stay within my recommended caloric intake. It's impressive! With regards to the workouts, he really knows what he's doing. My workouts are always explosive and I've not seen a day where I'm not sore somewhere. My training sessions (twice weekly) are efficient and extremely well planned. Sometimes I have compound workouts and some session I would have isolation exercises and it definitely works for me! I dig the variety. If you are reading this, because you're undecided, I think you should give it a shot. This guy is passionate, really nice and really good at what he does. I should add that the price isn't an issue for me - he's affordable and that's why I also selected him. Stop wasting your time dilly dallying at the gym, and see a personal trainer. You won't regret it! If you decide to see him, you'll see yourself doing this rope workout :) I'll post again when I'm nearing my results, but that shouldn't be very soon. If you're ready to commit and ready for a change ... HE IS THE MAN!

It has been such a powerful and rewarding experience to work with Reggie. My fitness journey began with a free consultation provided by Reggie where we discussed my fitness goals, areas for improvement, and I was educated on the next steps of my fitness journey to reach my desired outcome. Reggie is professional, extremely knowledgeable, punctual, has clear communication,  is optimistic yet realistic, and is a proactive cheerleader of my goals and successes. Reggie is educated and well informed on proper form, limitations, when and how to challenge me to do better, and when I need support to further motivate me so I don't give up or quit. I truly feel cared about and valued as a customer. It is his positive attitude, fitness expertise, coaching philosophy,  passion and commitment to his work and his clients that keeps me coming back.  There have been times where I needed a schedule adjustment and his response has always been to make it work which I so greatly appreciate. His dedication is one that can't be matched.  I'm grateful for starting and continuing this fitness journey with Reggie. I highly recommend him for any one looking for a personal trainer no matter your level or where in the fitness journey you are.
