Raven is a FANTASTIC trainer! I was never an athlete growing up so I had no idea how to workout. About 7 years ago I had an injury that caused a bulging disc in my spine and after 4 years of chiropractic care to manage the pain I finally decided to have surgery. The surgeon recommended that I start working out and that's how I stumbled upon Raven. His background in kinesiology gave me confidence that he was going to teach me how to workout in a way that wouldn't make my injury worse, and it's one of the best decisions I've ever made. The first thing we did was talk about what my goals were. Based on that he tailored our sessions to fit. After just 3 weeks of working with him I was already feeling the benefits -- I was stronger and more importantly I wasn't in as much pain! He's has tons of great knowledge and his teaching style is just amazing. He knows exactly when to push you without being a drill sergeant, and he knows exactly when to give you a break and tell you an interesting story to distract you. He's patient and is willing to explain how/why an exercise works an area of your body. And if you're like me and certain exercises just hurt too much to do because of injury, he's quick to think of an alternative that will give you the same benefit without the pain. If you're serious about getting in shape hire Raven!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.
