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.

I have loved working out with Svetness. My personal trainer, Enitan, creates individualized workouts for me based on my fitness goals and abilities. No workout is the same, and I am always being challenged!

I was amazed at the quick response that I received after inquiring about personal training. While talking with Howard on the phone about my fitness goals, I was able to sense his passion for what he does. He is very professional, personable and knowledgeable about what he does. I have already been motivated while beginning this personal training journey, and I am confident he will help me reach my goal.

I’ve learned so much about fitness and diet since working with Deep! It’s great to work with someone who is an expert in their field and takes it seriously. I also love that you are not locked into a contract. I would strongly recommend him as a personal trainer!!

I've been training with Cornelius for several weeks now, and having a great personal trainer has had a major impact on my fitness. Having a trainer has helped me with my accountability to my fitness goals, and Cornelius has been very helpful throughout the entire process. We do a mix of boxing, cardio, and strength-training exercises, and I have learned the proper form for several exercises that I had previously not been using to their full potential. Cornelius has geared my workouts to be a great mix of exercises, so the time in the gym never gets stale. He is encouraging and a fun person to be around, which makes the workouts much more bearable! He has also taken personal injuries into account, and designed workouts around strengthening weak areas of the body. I have had a great experience working with Cornelius thus far, and would recommend him to anyone looking to jumpstart their fitness goals!

Viki is the best personal trainer I have ever had. Her sparkly personality, sophisticated and professional approach to training, her no-nonsense results-oriented demeanor makes her rare and valuable. I have never met a fitness expert like her. As a trainer, her approach is holistic - she works my physical, mental, emotional, and nutritional health. I feel like I can achieve my fitness goals and I want to work out more and do better every day, thanks to her. I feel very lucky to be able to be her client.

I recently started personal training with Carlos and he already motivated to continue my fitness journey, which I never could have done by myself. He's been great with everything - knowledgeable, attentive to your goals, communications, and great workout designed to your level and needs. He also designed a workout to do by myself on the days without training. Thank you, Carlos!

I’ve loved my experience thus far with ELIN Fitness Redefined and my trainer Jovis. In my first month, Jovis has designed a custom workout schedule for me, and I can already see results in how I look and feel. I am so looking forward to our next five months! Elin is also super responsive and professional. It is clear that he cares about his clients and the quality of his business. I would highly recommend ELIN Fitness Redefined for anyone looking for personal training services in the DC area.

If you want to change your body, live a healthier life and not hate your time in the gym…work with Gladiator Strong Fitness. Shawn is one of the best in the business of personal training. He doesn’t go through the motions and he’s extremely knowledgeable about what you need to do to be a better you. I’m in the TV news business and it’s important for me to have a personal trainer who is flexible with my changing schedule. Shawn is not only flexible but he’s able to come to you! I wasn’t sure if I had the equipment needed in my building’s gym but Shawn quickly reassured me that he can make it work no matter the gym. His experience and professionalism are refreshing and he provides the motivation to keep you going. The initial assessment where Shawn got to know me and my goals really set us off on the right start.The price of working with Shawn is one that can’t be beat. His rates are great and the best in the region. I have to admit when I picked Shawn, I like a trainer who is a model of his personal training. Shawn talks the talk and definitely walks the walk. I highly recommend Gladiator Strong Fitness.

I have nothing but good things to say about Fitness Stop LLC and only fantastic things to say about my trainer, Ariana. From the beginning, Robert (the owner) was responsive, professional and most importantly, transparent about costs and the program. Ariana has a presence that is not only kind and authentic, but hardcore and supportive. I chose to find a trainer to improve my personal health and begin my efforts to one day do a spartan race and I will add that in just one month, I have seen progress in my ability to run and even more so in my ability to endure strength training. I’ll also add that Ariana doesn’t stop training when we leave the gym. She constantly encourages me to eat better (following me on my fitness pal) and checks in on me on our off days. I’m so pleased and wouldn’t have done it any other way.

I've only been training with Gary for five weeks, but I'm already seeing results and feeling so much stronger. Gary is super professional, knowledgeable, and challenging as a trainer. He's great about checking in frequently during sessions to make sure various exercises aren't exacerbating injuries (I have a shoulder issue and an old ankle injury), and he's quick to make adjustments if they are. Gary's been really open to feedback regarding my personal training style and exercises I've found useful, and he somehow manages to find time in his schedule to check up on my post-workout soreness, nutrition, and recovery. In short, Gary is a fantastic trainer and enjoyable to work with -- you definitely won't regret hiring him to help you reach your fitness goals.

Elin and Joe from his team of personal trainers have been incredibly responsive and helpful as I began my fitness journey. Joe has helped me not just get in the gym regularly and stay motivated, he's helped me learn what to do/why an exercise or machine is important/how to feel comfortable doing it on my own. He's also been really good at adapting and changing our regimen to reflect my comfort levels and also what I'm finding fun - I used to hate going to the gym, so finding workouts that I enjoy has been huge.

All my life, I've been an athlete. I was sprinter through college. About a year ago, I decided to try my hand at endurance sports -- triathlons and long distance running. Need less to say, the transition has been a challenge. Hareldau has helped me meet the challenge. By taking the time to assess my ability, skill set, and inquiring about my intentions. Hareldau came up with a training plan that is helping me reach my goals. Her expertise has helped me become stronger, fitter, more focused, and more importantly, more confident. In less than two months, I went from an average 5K mile pace of 10:45 to 9:15. I went from not being able to do one pull-up to being able to do 3 sets of 7. Everyday, Hareladau (gently) pushes me to reach new heights. I am confident that by next running season I will surpass my goal of an 8:30 5K mile pace in no time! Beyond Hareldau’s expertise in developing individuals into efficient runner, she is skilled at nurturing their spirit and confidence. When I explained that I viewed my training as an extension of my spiritual journey, she did not balked. She integrated my intention into my workout routines. She coached me to see that the challenges that I face and overcome in the gym are tied to my life outside the gym. My confidence in my business, personal relationships, and overall ability has grown. I am grateful that I chose Hareldau to be my trainer. I am seeing immediate results. I highly recommend Hareladu Argyle of CoutureFit Fitness Service. I guarantee that she will bring out your best – it’s her gift.
