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.

Marvin is a great trainer! My wife and I have been working out with Marvin for 9 months now and are very happy with the results. We both feel stronger and more fit. Marvin is a professional, always comes on time and is very attentive to our needs. He creates custom workout plans that fit our level of fitness and abilities, and accommodate our limitations. He is always giving great guidance on form and encouraged us to bring out the best of our abilities each workout. I would recommend that you pick Marvin as your personal trainer.

Ed is the man! What else can I say? My wife and I were looking for a trainer who could address our personal fitness goals leading up to our wedding. With a 3-month window, Ed was able to evaluate each of our individual needs effectively and construct workout programs that he trained us on, simultaneously. We are extremely pleased with our results. Ed's program not only helped us reach our goal, but has really set us up for long term success with our physical fitness. We'll be continuing our training with him for a while I think.

I wish I had more stars to give to this great guy! I have been working with Hebert for a few weeks now. He is not just a great trainer but a great personal overall. He is 100% committed to his client's progress and he checked on me often following my visit to the doctor's office to nurse an injury. He came all the way from Brooklyn to give me 2 free personal training sessions. I wish I was closer to Hebert (proximity wise) so I could have worked with him continuously. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Hebert to achieve your fitness goals.

Charles is my first ever personal trainer and has made the experience great so far. The workouts have all been tailored to my goals, fitness level, and past injuries, and he goes above and beyond that by sending me workouts to do when I am away, or over the weekend. Charles has such an uplifting personality and is always encouraging. Highly recommend!!

Thanks John. I'm working with Eze at Hoboken Fitness for about three weeks now and I'm glad with my selection. I've never worked with a personal trainer before so I can't compare. I can tell that they are very professional and understanding. They will encourage you to improve but in a respectful way (not being "pushy"). The nutrition advise is highly appreciated, I feel better about my gym routines now knowing that I'm doing the right things and look forward to keep working with them.
