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.

Reviews for Brooklyn fitness personal trainers

Jordan's approach to personal fitness makes him the ideal trainer. He is genuinely interested in people. He approaches his role as to that of a coach and not a drill sergeant. He is able to encourage outcomes without resorting to yelling, barking or demeaning and he emphasizes partnership over hierarchy. Further, he takes a wholistic view of his clients as people, striving to be mindful of the full range of their goals, and seeking to understand how their personal fitness goals fit into the larger package. He is also aware that exercise is only one part of a larger health and wellness effort and blends that awareness into a fuller program to increase successful outcomes.

Awesome young woman, committed and knowledgable. Working with Alexis was the first time I worked with a Personal Trainer outside of a gym and it was great seeing how many ways I could work out at home or in a park and get the results I wanted. I achieved my goal and plan to continue my fitness journey. I would highly recommend Alexis.

Gail is focused on helping me achieve my goals and makes every session challenging (& somehow fun). My fitness has increased noticeably and I’ve seen improvements in my ability to complete more exercises, pushing myself harder throughout each session. She also ensures that my technique is always correct to avoid any injuries. I actually look forward to my workouts. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gail as your personal trainer if you want to achieve your fitness and health goals. Will be writing another review after completing my goals!

George Lewis/Inner Fire Fitness is hands down the best personal trainer I have ever worked with. I've worked with Mr.Lewis for 4 months and he changed my life. He motivated me, encouraged me, and pushed me to achieve fitness goals that I never thought were possible. I hate ab workouts they were challenging for me, he saw this,to encourage me, and motivate me Mr.Lewis got on the floor and did the entire ab workout session with me. What more could I ask for, he's the best personal trainer ever!! I still hate ab workouts but I can do them now because he believed in me, and now I believe in myself. He is passionate about fitness, nutrition, and making sure that his client's get the results they want. His workouts are challenging but he makes them fun. He has a great personality, he's friendly, laid back,and funny but he is serious about his job. He is professional, he always shows up prepared for every session. He is educated in the field, he has a degree in Kinesology from Penn State, that alone is worth it's weight in gold. Hire George Lewis/Inner Fire Fitness no matter what your goals are, no matter what your challenges are he is the right person to help you get what you want.

Working with Zhi on our fitness goals has been a terrific experience. We are loving each session and are so happy to have found a personal trainer who is smart, personable and professional. Zhi tailors workouts specific to your goals and we’ve found every session is loaded with appropriate challenges. He’s always super patient, clearly articulates what we’re doing, and provides the guidance and support you’d expect from a great PT! Zhi loves what he does and it shows - we’d highly recommend him in a heartbeat.

If you want to use every ounce of energy and feel the most alive you ever have, John is you trainer. I started with a low level of fitness and over a year and a half, have been replacing pounds of body fat with muscle month after month and feeling better in every way. John is extremely knowledgeable about body composition, exercise and nutrition and puts together a plan that fits the goals you want, be it strength, speed or if you just want to look like him ;) Everything is tracked so you can see your progress which helps when it gets tough. It does take time but you have to trust the process, it works. He will push you to your best, you'll grow muscles you never knew you had but theres always fun and good laugh to be had. It doesn't get easier, you just get faster stronger and lift heavier. Flexibility is great, whether its your local gym or home gym (my preference) and if the session starts late, you'll go until your finished. If you are looking for a personal trainer that actual cares about your health/wellness/fitness, John is all that, and more.

Every single session I’ve had so far was extremely entertaining and amazing, besides Yessenia being an awesome trainer she’s also a great human being. She’s extremely nice, helpful, takes her time with explaining everything and makes sure that her workouts are just enough to fit my needs. She’s very patient, but she doesn’t let me slack. If she sees I’m struggling, she helps. She’s not letting me be lazy and I love that about her. She always hypes me up which makes me want to push myself to be even better, makes me feel confident which is something I haven’t felt in a while. My favorite thing is seeing her excitement when I’m improving, that shows me that she cares about everyone she’s training, which is what in my opinion a personal trainer should be, you can’t train a person without caring about them. I started training because I have back issues, and after about a month and a half I can feel that my back is improving and all credits for that go out to her. I absolutely love her and I’m very thankful that she’s taking her time into making me more athletic, and overall for making me feel better about myself.

I scheduled my first session with Alexis. She missed it because her "alarm didn't go off" - I gave her a call, said this happens to the best of us and then rescheduled for the next morning. I also let her know that if all went well, I was hoping to prepay monthly, and looking for up to 3 months at 4 sessions a week. I was really excited to get the ball rolling, and had seen all her 5 star reviews. 20 minutes before our rescheduled session, she let me know that she'd be running 15 minutes late. I confirmed this still worked for me. 30 minutes after our scheduled time, she still wasn't here - nor had she sent an explanation of why. When I finally reached out to say that I didn't think this was going to work out, she responded "Np." Unfortunately, the brief experience I had with Alexis demonstrated an unprofessional lack of discipline that should be key to a personal trainer. I have no doubt that Alexis is skilled at what she does, but sadly not a fit for someone who is searching for a trainer that prioritizes professional consistency and timeliness.
