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 San Diego fitness trainers
Thumbtack Customer
Maggie is a wonderful personal instructor. Her positive encouragement and outlook, together with hard core, high variety workout make a dynamic combination for achieving results. The thing that makes her outstanding is her educational and technical knowledge on scientific and fitness studies that have achieved results and how she combines this in the routine for maximum effectiveness. Specifically her combinations of balance, agility and anaerobic exercise make her program unique. It's been a pleasure working with Maggie and I continue to engage with her.

Allison was awesome! She came to our Airbnb for a morning yoga session for a bachelorette party. I wasn’t sure if we would all fit in the living room, so she had some ideas for a nearby park as an alternative (ended up using the fenced in front yard). Not only was she very responsive, communicative, and on time, but she was a great yoga instructor. She had a very soft, calming presence, and you can tell she comes with lots of experience. And I love that she rolled with the punches when some of our ladies got the giggles...laughed along with us but didn’t skip a beat. The bride LOVED the essential oils and adjustments she made with our form. She was perfect for our group. Thank you so much Allison, we will never forget it!
