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.

Matt and his trainer Jason have been great. 1 on 1 boxing and muay thai training with strength and conditioning workouts mixed in. Highly recommend.

Had my first session with Minju today. He is clear, concise, and straight to the point. Exactly what I am looking for in a boxing trainer.

John is a great trainer - we do a mixture of boxing training and conditioning/strength. He is very personable and caters all the lessons plans to my needs and goals - always keeping me engaged and challenged. I love working with him and I love the progress we have made together. He listens to me, makes me feel comfortable, and keeps me on my toes (literally). I cannot recommend him enough.

I wanted to take boxing lessons with my 5-year-old son. Since there were no parent/child classes that I could find, I began searching for a personal trainer for a private class. I'm glad I did! I booked Paul and he was great. I was a little bit self-conscious going into my first lesson because I had never boxed before. I was worried I wouldn't know what the hell I was doing, and that I would look like an idiot. Well that wasn't the case. Paul is super nice, he isn't intimidating, and he doesn't have an ego. He was also great with my son and was really engaging. Kids get bored quickly, so I was happy to see that he knew when to switch gears. My kid and I had a blast, and we can't wait to have our next session.

JJ and I have started an intense workout regimen that quite frankly is kicking my a@%... but is exactly what I need to get back into shape both in muscle tone and cardiovascular stamina. He is at once approachable and friendly, he doesn't shout but will hold you to pushing yourself as far as you can go, and then a little more. If you are committed to getting into shape, I HIGHLY recommend meeting up with JJ. He is also extremely knowledgeable regarding nutrition and will literally answer any nutrition questions I have as often as I have them throughout the day via text in a very quick manner. I also really love the variety of workouts he has led me through: weigh training, intense cardio, interval training, boxing/martial arts... I'm pretty convinced he can do anything. Three things you should know: 1. You will sweat... a lot! 2. You will be sore... really sore. 3. You will have a good time through it.

I’m an extremely reserved person in general, however, Matt made me feel comfortable considering the virus we’re experiencing this year. Before I made the choice to make an appointment to have Matt come out for a trial session I was very anxious and nervous because I didn’t know what to expect since I’ve never taken any kind of boxing class or done any exercises where it involved a personal trainer. Turns out it was the greatest decision I’ve made! Matt was exceptionally professional, kind, knowledgeable and supporting. I felt so at ease with the energy he projects and the workout was AMAZING! I’m the type of person where it takes a lot to make me break a sweat but this workout really kicked my butt. As a fairly thin woman my main concern is learning self defense in order to protect myself if I ever find myself in a dangerous situation and I’m very confident that I’m going to learn a lot with Matt and his team. He gave me his full and undivided attention and showed me what my weaknesses are and which areas I need to work on. He even gave me insightful advice for my diet. After just one session I felt extremely happy and confident which are emotions that I haven’t had in a while and I can’t express the excitement I feel to start consistent classes. I have not yet booked my full sessions with him for personal reasons, but Fightfit Personal Trainers will be my go to in the near future. I only had one session with Matt and I was extremely impressed! I will NOT be looking for any other trainers in this field other than Fightfit Personal Trainers!

Johnny is awesome! From the moment I met him I could tell he was a pro. He was so hyperaware of what was going on around us at all times. As far as self defense goes, he's the absolute best! I've been meeting with him weekly and my progress thus far is really exciting. I know that if in an unfortunate situation I wouldn't freeze and could fend for myself. We do everything from basic self defense (if being attacked with knife/gun/sexual assault) to cardio and boxing. I love training with Johnny and can't wait to get grow even more in my ability. I highly highly recommend him! He is also so so knowledgeable and sweet and so impressive. A living breathing better version of John Wicke but a total teddy bear on the inside.
