Smart Bodies was founded in 1991 as an independent company that provides clients with comprehensive health and fitness programming. A certified and credentialed trainer, I furnish general and sport specific conditioning programming, injury prevention training, and rehabilitative conditioning for clients with specific post-rehab recuperative needs. Smart Bodies begins your training with either a Functional Movement Screen(FMS) or Three-Dimensional Movement Analysis and Performance System (3DMAPS). A primary goal in any exercise program is to prevent injury. This comes before fat loss, weight loss, muscle building, or performance enhancement. If you get hurt, none of the aforementioned matter, because you cannot train. The FMS and 3DMAPS are the most innovative methods designed to assess how the body functions as a holistic unit. Measuring entire body’s mobility (flexibility, range of motion) and stability (strength, control of motion) they establish a baseline and identify a Relative “Success Code” specific to each individual. Afterwards, you and I will determine the program most suitable for you based upon, your fitness goals and personalized success code. You should expect that gradual progress in achieving your goals is the normative. Our bodies adjust to physical stresses slowly. It’s important, therefore, that you remain patient during the entire process and expect results over an extended period. The keywords in physical training are patience, consistency, and more patience! Exercise sessions are conducted at a chosen facility, in home, or outdoors and last approximately one hour. Please appear on time and ready to exercise. Client sessions are scheduled on the hour, and your cannot extend into another client’s appointed time period. At-home training sessions and Customized Monthly Training programs can be scheduled by special arrangement. Your Trainer: Katherine Coltrin, MS, FAFS, CSCS, The client’s education begins with what a good trainer knows and practices. I have an extensive background in exercise science, including a Baccalaureate of Science in exercise physiology from the University of California, Berkeley, and Master of Science degree in kinesiology (science of movement) from California State University, Long Beach. In addition, I hold nationally recognized certification (CSCS) from the National Strength and Conditioning Association, completed a fellowship in Applied Functional Science at the Gray Institute, hold Level I &II FMS certification and am certified with the American College of Sports Medicine to present 3-day workshops to certify trainers. I am dedicated to providing my clients with fitness programming that incorporates the latest research and best practice methods. In addition to being a Movement Practitioner, I, swim, rock climb, kayak, and mountain bike in national athletic competitions. In order to remain up to date and to improve my own physical movement, I utilize a specialist as well. What I do in the gym and outside prepares me for the rigors and demands of life and work. Building a solid movement foundation is the minimal prerequisite to successful performance and continued health.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.
