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 Austin bodybuilding trainers
Thumbtack Customer
I view the day I made a Thumbtack account as the same day I realized that my autodidactic pursuit of personal fitness had, ultimately, little direction. I was satiated by the idea that the results I had the potential to gain through working out regularly would eventually appear, regardless of my inconsistent workout routine or my improper dieting habits. Thus, I was confused and discouraged when I saw little to no results after months of physical expenditure. I had no idea what I was doing wrong, for all I knew bodybuilding was a blanket label that applied to any workout routine which encouraged resistance training. My first free session with Zachary, even my first interaction with him through Thumbtack, left with me a faint glimmer of the truth that I had not yet accepted: that I was doing it completely wrong. My experiences with Zachary have given me the ability to recognize and improve upon my understanding of personal fitness, as well as the capacity to develop myself independently, both of which are of infinite value to me. Zachary is a professional both in his mindset and his practice. His methodology is one that has not only allowed me to gain 14 pounds since I started working with him, but is also one that is organized to ensure the construction and achievement of physical goals. I have been working with Zachary for almost an entire year now, and I can safely say that I have seen more improvements in my physical appearance and strength than I have ever seen in the years I have spent trying to perfect my physical health. Zachary is unique in that his methods are extensively systematic and self-developing, as he gives you the tools to continue working out on the days that he is not able to coach you. I am definitely satisfied with Zachary's personal training, and strongly recommend him to anyone seeking physical development, nutritional guidance or someone to help you overcome your weaknesses.
