Late last year, I finally decided to start taking my health more seriously and came up with a long term plan, including signing up with a personal trainer at the beginning of 2020, which is when I met Chris. It turned out Chris wasn't just a personal trainer, he was *the boss* of all the trainers for the chain of gyms I was a member of, and for good reason! Chris truly has a passion for helping people get the most of out their workouts and achieve their goals, and the man has REALLY done his homework to make sure he can help as many people as possible. Got a sports injury? Chris can help. Bad back (like me)? He's got you. Bio-mechanical dysfunction? No worries, he'll use a bunch of big words that you might not understand unless you have a medical degree, then the two of you will get to work. Is there a global pandemic keeping you down? I used that as an excuse for about 2 months, but then Chris got in touch and asked if I was ready to get off my ass and start working out again, and I said HELL YES! We've been making it work ever since. I've been working out with Chris for a total of ~6 months, I've lost over 25 lbs, I'm in the best shape I've been in since college (I'm 41 y/o now), and I even found an amazing and beautiful girlfriend...in the middle of COVID!!! All this being said, Chris did not just wave a magical wand and make it all happen. It took a lot of hard work on my part, but without Chris' expert guidance and motivation, I would not have gotten here on my own. So, my most sincere thanks go out to Chris, and I look forward to our continued partnership (and to someday having six-pack abs in the not-too-distant future).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.

Reviews for Palms boot camp instructors
Thumbtack Customer
Pros: Mike is flexible (worked with my schedule and drove out to me since I don't have a car), punctual, coherent, and knowledgable (has an understanding of anatomy/physiology etc.). He’s very professional with a positive attitude and is easy-going (if you want a boot camp sergeant who spends most of his time yelling at you, Mike's not your guy). He will definitely spot any weakness you may have and help fix your form so you can get the most out of your workout. Cons: Ok, so not so much a "Mike con" as a "PT con" in general. If you’re anything like me, you will be seeing him only a couple of times a week. And though you'll push yourself on those days, it's up to you to stay equally driven on the off days. He works hard, but Mike's not a magic fairy, you can't expect results if you don't put in the work and stay consistent. Hints/tips: Ask about doing a workout at Runyon Canyon. You'll burn calories while enjoying great views of LA. Get ready to shvitz folks, this guy is the real deal!
