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 was pretty nervous about going to a Personal Trainer because this was my first time hiring a pro. From the moment I walked into Trivium Personal Fitness, I was welcomed with a non-judgmental and friendly attitude.Ryan is my personal trainer, and he is very knowledgeable on nutrition, workout, and coming up with a strategy to accomplish long-term and short-term goals. He helped me understand composition of my body weight, gave me a nutrition game plan on how I can hit my goals, and taught me how to workout properly. I am very glad that I chose Trivium Personal Fitness.

I hired Kristi recently and I had a lot of very specific fitness goals. Not only was she very skilled at her craft, she was also very hands on with my personal needs and concerns. She is a trainer who is able to challenge me physically while being very supportive of me and my needs. I’m so grateful to be able to have such a professional guide me while also knowing she truly does care so much. I can always reach out to her with any question or concern and she is always responsive and informative. It is exactly what I needed and I’m so grateful to be on this journey with her. I would highly recommend Kristi , she is so obviously the very best at what she does !

John is a fantastic trainer. Let me just say, I'm not a newbie to the gym at all. I've been going since 2012. My problem never had to do with getting up and going to the gym but my intensity at the gym seemed to be lacking. I've tried 2 other trainers before with almost zero results. It was almost as if they didn't really care about my goals and they were happy that I already cut the check. So, needless to say I wasn’t looking forward to getting another one. However, this time it was different. My diet was much better and my goal wasn’t weight related this time. My goal was to look good and feel good. I wanted that 6 pack! But again, how could this trainer do anything else for me that I wasn’t already doing on my own? I was about to find out. I had my free 1on1 personal training to try him out and see if I thought it would work for me. First off, that was awesome. I loved that I got to try him out before hand to see if he fit. That training session was killer. Then, I had my first boot camp class with him and wow! He kicked my butt. And the second and the third boot camp class kept getting more and more challenging. I couldn’t believe it. I used to go to the gym and get on the elliptical and burn X amount of calories in 45 minutes and go to work feeling like I could have probably done another 45. After one of his boot camp classes I am drenched in sweat and passed out on the floor. And the best part, I feel ACCOMPLISHED afterwards. Like it wasn’t a waste of time and that I truly gave it my all. And even better, I crave the next class I have with him because there’s not another workout like it. I have three favorite things about John compared to the other trainers I’ve had. First off, he’s in shape. The worst part is trying to get trained by someone who doesn’t do what they preach. Second, which is probably my favorite, is that he is not standing on the sidelines yelling at you to work. At his boot camp classes, he is right there with you working hard and sweating. He’s doing the exact same workouts with you so I use it as leverage to try and keep up with him! Third, you know he loves his job and even better that he loves to train those that want to change their bodies for the better. Your goal is his goal. And he’s even training for a competition of his own so you only get dedication from this guy!! All in all, John is awesome and I’ve already recommended him to multiple of my girlfriends who are trying to get in a shape because he is that good. But be prepared to work and sweat if you come to one of his boot camp classes!!
