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.

I found Scott Hollinger, personal trainer, on line. Since I am an older, active woman, I was looking for someone who could understand my fitness needs. Scott has surpassed all my expectations. He is very knowledgeable, motivational & the perfect task master! I would not hesitate to recommend Scott as an excellent personal trainer for all ages. Rita

Alex responded to my request quickly and was quite personable in his responses (not the generic messages one normally receives here). He was incredibly flexible and worked with me/my schedule to provide a training time that would benefit me. He adapted his training sessions to fit my personal needs and created an awesome workout regimen that worked me super hard but was really enjoyable the entire time. After our workout, he had some diet and supplement suggestions to aid me in reaching my fitness goals. Finally, to make it even better, he charges a very reasonable rate considering all the personal care he gave to my workout. I highly recommend Alex and Empire Fitness!

Chrissy is an amazing trainer! She’s extremely knowledgeable. I look forward to my training sessions every week, she’s been able to push me more than I could ever do myself. She’s been able to work with short term and long term goals and is extremely encouraging and keeps me motivated every session! Whatever fitness goals you have I’d recommend her, she’s very accommodating to your personal goals/needs!

I cannot say enough good things about Brett. He is an amazing trainer! He teaches by demonstrating first and explains concepts clearly. He is very positive and encouraging, but will not coddle you. (which I prefer and appreciate) I feel like he listened to my personal fitness goals, and has a plan in place to get me there while holding me accountable.

Kristin is awesome! Though ultimately I decided to go with a gym membership to kick off my new fitness journey and will re-visit personal training at a later time, she went above and beyond to make sure I had resources to help me on my journey and really appreciated her genuine willingness to help me. Not only is she kind, but you can tell that she does have your best interest of your health in mind and I truly hope I will have the opportunity to train with her in the future when I'm ready. Highly recommended!

Travis is a great trainer to work with. He asks a lot of questions and is genuinely interested in your specific goals, with a really healthy focus on nutrition and full-body health, including guidelines for when to eat, how much sleep to aim for, workouts outside of a gym (when traveling), and more. Travis is easy-going and attentive — I can't say how many times I pinged him with a question via email or text to which I usually got a fairly prompt answer, a huge help for someone who's struggling to learn the ropes of a healthier diet and fitness. Compared to other trainers I've worked with in the past, this was a huge thumbs up. In the end I was unable to stick with it for personal reasons, but I highly recommend anyone interested in getting fit consider Travis for his acumen and ability to inspire.

My husband and I found Travis on Thumbtack about 3mths ago. We both work out with him twice a week. I have had several personal trainers over the years and find Travis to be the most knowledgeable. I like to ask a lot of " why" questions about the exercises we are doing and he always has a very informative answer. I have learned a lot about fitness since I started training with him. He also pays attention to form, is very conscious of our position and always makes sure we perform each exercise correctly. My husband has back problems and Travis is able to help him with his back issue by offering him exercises he can do to help him strengthen and stretch his back. My husband has found this very helpful. Overall , we have had a very positive experience working with Travis and I would highly recommend him as a trainer.

Shane was exactly what I was looking for. He was easily able to accommodate my fitness needs as well as attend to my personal strengths. After looking at several different trainers Shane was by FAR the most affordable, and frankly, he was the easiest to communicate with. He was very flexible with scheduling and location, as well as very open and up front about his ideals. He's clearly educated and knows what he is talking about. Not only did I work out, I learned about why certain work outs are beneficial. After just a month I'm taking away so much new knowledge as well as physical strength. And on a side note, the dude is awesome and fun to hang out with. A++ You wont be disappointed if you use Shane Chokey. He will work with you to help meet your unique goals. He has the skill and knowledge to benefit a wide range of fitness needs.

Save yourself time and get Dustin already! No need to look any further, he is your guy. Not only does he know what he’s talking about, he looks the part too. I was initially intimidated by someone that had so much muscle, but his gentle, attentive mannerisms quickly put me at ease. He is patient, punctual, informative and very knowledgeable, always kind enough to answer my myriad questions both on and off site. My experience so far has been nothing short of amazing. It’s just my 3rd week working with him and my confidence has already gone up a notch, I have an abundance of energy, my clothes have started to fit me better and the best part yet, I can eat my favorite food (rice) more freely. He is the very epitome of a Personal Trainer and the best investment in myself.

I am a work week traveler and found myself in Portland Monday-Thursday for a 6 week job. Wanting to get into shape, I turned to the internet to find a personal trainer to hold me accountable to get fit while on the road....and man did I luck out. Ben was fantastic not only did I lose 12 pounds, I gained healthy eating habits and feel more engerized then ever. He will accommodate traveling to you and or a desired location which for me was a huge plus. We held workouts indoors and outdoors which was great for switching up the routine and learning new techniques to carry forward. I also learned that I could get greater results doing the right activities within a set time rather than spending a crazy amount of time in the gym. If your looking for a reliable motivator to get and keep you on the path of a healthy life style, Bens your guy. I wish I could clone him to continue the lessons in my home state.
