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 Francisco boxing instructors
Andres O.
Hey everybody - I've been training boxing for ~4 years on and off. Elias is a great coach for anyone: from someone who is just starting out and wants to have fun to someone who has a lot of boxing experience and wants to improve his/her technique. Firstly, Elias is very professional. He's extremely responsive, always arrives early, and has a great professional attitude that makes it very easy to feel comfortable and have fun working with him. Secondly, he is very knowledgeable about boxing - he has been training most of his life - which means that he can immediately figure out the areas you can improve and show you himself how to execute complex techniques. Thirdly, he is very passionate about boxing and martial arts in general and has a lot of sparring experience. Therefore, he's always down to do some light sparring and teach you along the way. Elias is the real deal. I really recommend scheduling a session with him. I'm sure you'll love it. Andrés

I was slipping in keeping up with my personal fitness during the pandemic and so came on Thumbtack for the first time to find personal training. It was my first experience working out with a professional and Sunil was wonderful! It was very easy to schedule to meet, talk through my needs and then meet 2x/week to do exercises. I really enjoyed boxing and his first-principles approach to building my strength, and I am now in the greatest shape of my life! He was also very professional and flexible with my scheduling needs. Lastly he is also a wonderful cheerleader and always encouraged me to push on without making me feel bad. Highly recommend!

Working with Elias has been one of the most rewarding fitness experiences I've had in months. When the quarantine started, I didn't know where to look to get involved in fitness and who to trust to teach me self-defense and foundations in mixed martial arts. I didn't have a lot of experience with finding instructors or trainers in the city since I'm new and just moved here from Canada, eh. I also had a lot of personal worries and doubts about who to trust and rely on for training, self-defense and fitness. I didn't know a lot of people and was in need of someone trust-worthy and reliable. When I met Elias, I was skeptical about the $60/per session but open-minded to the idea of working with him and that turned out to be one of the BEST fitness decisions I've made. Elias over-exceeded my expectations in so many areas, including delivering fun, challenging, engaging workouts that focused on foundations, strength workouts, and variety on Muay Thai, Boxing, and BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-jitsu). In his words, he grew up in a tough neighbourhood, and those experiences taught him to be practical, smart and nimble. He has over 20 years of experience in MMAs (mixed martial arts). He's competed professionally in a ring for over 5 years, giving him a HUGE range of experiences to share with his students. On top of that, he's kind (he bought me a Gatorade when I didn't bring water to a class), considerate of his students (pushes you just hard enough and asks you how you're feeling), responsiveness (you need 1:1 classes ASAP because life is stressin' you out - he's got your back), and has high integrity (believes in delivering value and teaching you to be excellent, instead of just trying to take as much money from you as possible). He has built a wonderful 1:1 experience for me by building a safe place to learn MMAs, without making me feel bad about taking my time to learn foundations. He's patient and deeply cares about his students and the experience he delivers. As a plug, him and his team also have outdoor boxing lessons in the Panhandle & Russian Hill currently. Support this local business and help them thrive during the pandemic so they can deliver more outdoor boxing classes for others in a safe manner. If you do, google sfboxingclub. I do both the 1:1 and go to the these outdoor classes on the weekends. Truly, truly a wonderful experience that is hard to come by. Not only does his team do such an amazing job of attentively making sure your experience is wonderful and safe, they also help to build a small, safe and mighty community of boxers who are strong and happy to get their fitness in a safe and comfortable space. Thank you Elias for all that you do. I do not write reviews very often, but when someone goes up and beyond to make my experience amazing, I will write a review for them. Highly, highly recommend. A+++++++++. Do it up.
