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 man is on beastmode 24/7. I had my doubts about getting a personal trainer but two minutes into talking to him and I was sold. It's going great so far. The Jesus Christ of personal trainers. Professional, timely, affordable, and funny as hell. 10/10! You'll have a blast as you destroy yourself in his gym and laugh while you take 14 years to get out of bed after leg day.

Armin is a professional in the fitness field. I’ve met with him once and I really am looking forward to working with him. He is amazingly easy to reach and he will respond within a couple minutes if he’s not occupied. He has several affordable payment plans to offer. He will work with your schedule too. Definitely an excellent Personal Trainer.

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!

I trained with Bobbi for 5 months. Bobbi was a great personal trainer and I was very happy working with her. I told her about my goals of trimming down fat and building muscle and she prepared a weightlifting and diet program specifically for my needs. Bobbi is very punctual and takes great care to inform her clients when an emergency arises and she may be late 5 minutes. If for some reason she can't make it to a session she will do her best to find a suitable make-up session. At first we started working out from home and we had some progress, and then we moved to the gym where the progress better and faster. Bobbi will push you as hard as she can to make sure you get the most out of your workout (you definitely get your money's worth!). Bobbi is very well versed in fitness and nutrition. Every question I threw at her she always answered in a very knowledgeable and scientific manner. Unfortunately I found myself in a situation where I could no longer afford the training and had to discontinue training with Bobbi, but as soon as I can I plan to get back in the program with her. I definitely recommend Bobbi to someone who is looking to trim some fat and build muscle by lifting weights.
