I was at the top of my weight at 175! I'm 5'3" and 66 years old and just did not want to be an unhealthy slug going into my golden years. COVID belly caught up with me and I also have Coronary Heart Disease. Weight was no longer my friend and my physician said LOSE weight! (I also have flat feet, bunions, and hip pain from arthritis!) I tried so may weight loss programs over the years and I HATE exercise in any form. I started to lose weight on my own in early 2020 and became stuck at a 10 lb. weight loss. I saw my friend use PTbyKG and was amazed at her toning and weight loss (approx. 40 lbs). I really did not want to become accountable to anyone and I really did not want a personal trainer. PTbyKG online was a perfect fit for me (I signed up for the who enchilada!) because I wasn't held to a committed time to complete exercise. I also figured that I hadn't gone on vacation or spent money on dining out so why not splurge on myself. I started working with Katie in July 2020. My first weigh in was 165.3 (trust me the oz's count - LOL) and my pics and measurements were provided. UGGGGG. I fluctuated the first month but my body fat was decreasing and muscle was increasing and I ended the first month at 162. Katie had me walking 5 of 7 days and on a heart friendly exercise program of about 20-30 minutes 3x a week. By October 2020 I weighed 153 and felt much better with more energy. Of most interest was that my exercises included some hip strengthening and the pain has really minimized. The food tracking and discussions with Katie were really helpful to keep me on target. My program ended and I was down approx 20 lbs (149). My body fat decreased 4.24% and I'm almost to normal BMI. It was a consistent loss with a couple of plateau's. Katie talked me through the plateau's and kept me motivated. I have kept on this journey since October and am now at 143.4 (December 2020). I plan to keep going till 135 lbs. PTbyKT made a huge difference in my life which I plan to practice forever. Thanks so much Katie. If you are reading this I highly and strongly encourage you to partake in any of her programs. She really knows her stuff and the programs work. Just do it!See more

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.
