When I was searching for a trainer, I had a couple of specific things in mind: building a knowledge base for a healthy lifestyle and value. Laurie has exceeded my requirements and helped me expand areas I wasn’t aware needed improvement! I’m so thankful. A few key points below: Flexibility: I am somewhat new to the DFW area as I’ve recently returned to school for my doctorate. Laurie was flexible about setting and re-visiting scheduled sessions to accommodate my changing responsibilities. Amidst Covid-19, we were able to work-out in areas that adhered to safety guidelines (e.g., parks, rooftop garages, anywhere we could get some air flowing and keep physical distance). She is always ready to go as planned, and meets my 2-3 minutes “late” with a smile and understanding. Value/Expertise: I had a strict budget in mind that Laurie worked with and helped set realistic expectations for. Our total length together was scheduled for 3 months, but I’ve now adjusted my spending/expenses to keep training with Laurie for a couple of times a month, virtually rather than in-person. I am also delighted with Laurie’s thoughtfulness in crafting my work-outs. Work-outs that used to be very challenging are now more doable and that’s despite the fact that she increases the difficulty/complexity of them. Her expertise shows in how attuned she is to my steady progress and her creativity in designing something that pushes yet works for me. Of note, I was having some pretty bad lower back pain, and Laurie has also navigated this really well. My back pain has lessened as I’ve gained strength, which is exciting! Knowledge Base: As mentioned, 3 months was all I could afford and that was ample time, per my own learning pace and Laurie’s assurance, to help me gain fitness skills that will promote a healthier lifestyle. Everything Laurie teaches me is practical. I’ve found myself taking elements from different work-outs (she writes all of my work-outs down in my journal), and designing at-home, no/minimal equipment work-outs. “Give a woman a fish, and you feed her for a day; teach a woman to fish, and you feed her for a lifetime,” am I right?! Tangible Results: Increased strength and toning in arms, legs, and core. It’s nice when you notice yourself easily carrying things around your home without losing your breath (functional fitness for the win)! This is specific to me: I’ve had lower back pain that I consulted with my physician about. I needed to increase mobility, flexibility, and strength, which is hard when you’re in the classroom or at a desk for hours on end. Since starting this endeavor with Laurie, my back pain has lessened, which was one of my biggest priorities. I am also in a better mood overall. The world is a tough place right now. I’m so thankful I can escape it for a while when I’m working out with Laurie or when I’m applying the skills she’s taught me to work out on my own. Bonus: Laurie has a warm, nonjudgmental (so hard to find!), collaborative, and kind spirit. I’m personally motivated more by someone who lives by how she preaches, does so without being in-your-face about it, and is patient with me when I have an “off” week(s). She’s also embedded nutritional guidance, which has been very helpful. Lastly, I alluded to unexpected growth in other aspects of my life. I think that the fact that I’ve been able to change some unnecessary spending habits to accommodate for continued training with Laurie is also a result of our mutual investment in me. I’m feeling better all-around :)See more

I have been training with Luke for 4 months now, and trust that he is one of the most dedicated and experienced fitness trainers around. I have always struggled with gaining weight, most likely because I never ate enough. I was weak and very, very unfit. I lacked basic confidence. At that point, I knew I had to make a noticeable change - I had to gain muscle and weight. Over the years I have joined various gyms, fitness classes, etc. but I would always drop off after a week or two, mostly because I never knew exactly what I needed in order to achieve my goals, and the entire process just felt boring and useless. Luke is a rare fitness gem. He is extremely helpful, motivating, and accommodating. He customizes every session according to my requirements, thereby making it fun and challenging at the same time. Following Luke's nutritional guidelines, I have noticed a considerable difference in my eating habits - it's remarkable. However, consistency with exercise alongside diet is a major key here. Additionally, I am much stronger as well as toned. Luke: - Ensures that I am always applying correct lifting techniques in order to avoid injury. - Is very polite, punctual, and reliable - always ready to start a session with everything planned ahead of time. - Is as committed to my goals as I am and, henceforth, the guidance and accountability he provides are really fruitful. With Luke, every day is a new day. He puts me in a position that pushes me to accomplish my goals by feeling engaged, and he never pushes me beyond what I can handle. With him, I know I have started my day just right. I know how tempting it is to think that, 'I can join a gym on my own, I know a few workouts, I know how to feed myself right'. But believe me when I say: 'You need a personal trainer. You need someone who is there to guide you through the process. You need someone who helps you focus on your final goal. It really makes a difference. I have enjoyed working out with Luke and would always recommend him to anyone who is trying to improve their physical appearance and fitness with a committed and encouraging trainer." -Edward AbreuSee more

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.
