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.

Daniel is very knowledgeable and helpful in all areas not to mention his physical training background and nutritional expertise. He's cool, down to earth person but pushes you to help you and truly seem to care about your results not just a paycheck. I would highly recommend anyone and everyone to Daniel for a personal trainer

When I first spoke to Festus he put me at ease by asking questions that incorporated not only my physical health but also inquiring about me as a person. This gave me the faith to overcome some of my fears of starting to work out in the gym again. He has laid out a comprehensive strength training program that includes exercises that cover my core and balance; along with strategies to work with my challenges. Festize is an excellent communicator and listener and has put me at ease about accomplishing my goals and given me concise instruction as to how to put these instructions into action. I highly recommend Festus as a personal trainer that not only can work with all types of physical challenges, but more importantly has a terrific attitude, helps me challenge my fears, and a wonderful spirit.

J Mike is an excellent trainer. I use to be in top notch shape, but found that life had gotten to me and packed on several unwanted pounds. I decided to get a trainer to hold me accountable. J Mike is a life saver. His workouts are challenging. He will find out where you are in your physical fitness level and build you from there. He really knows his stuff. Also, I love the fact that his workouts are not boring and routine. He changes them up on you, which not only make the workouts fun but challenges your body as well. I recommend J Mike as a personal trainer.

I highly recommend Akshay for a personal trainer. He is flexible and always willing to work with my schedule. At the end of a challenging day at work, my training sessions with Akshay are a great mental and physical relief and he somehow manages to pull energy out of me so I make it through the session. Akshay is professional, fun to work with, and has an easy to get along with personality. Another note worthy attribute is he is well-educated and is happy explain the nerdy physiological science that goes along with the training. As a former science major myslef, nerdy explanations are welcome. In fact, one might argue the nerdier the explanation the better. In my opinion, it installs confidence that he really knows what he’s talking about and goes without saying it’s refreshing to see someone passionate about fitness. Nerd on man, nerd on. -Francisco

Darren has been my personal trainer for about 10 months now and I am so grateful that my wife discovered his profile on Thumbtack. I wholeheartedly endorse him for anyone considering embarking on a new fitness goal or even for seasoned athletes looking for a jolt if their existing routine has gotten stale. Darren not only excels in the physical aspect of training, but he also brings a balanced mental component to our sessions. As anyone can attest who's recently started to workout after a long layoff, the hardest part is starting. What they also don't tell you is that maintaining your workouts is probably the next hardest hurdle to tackle. But that's where Darren really shines. Under Darren's tutelage, I've become accountable to myself and I really look forward to my sessions to see what new exercises we'll incorporate or to try and beat my weightlifting bests. I would classify Darren's workout management as 'adaptive'; that is, he can take what he's given in terms of available equipment, or if the gym is too crowded on a given day, and craft a workout routine that is challenging and never boring (he takes what's he's given and makes lemonade from lemons). I think that boredom is responsible for more broken fitness promises than any other factor. With Darren as my trainer, I've never been bored and almost a year later I don't think we've ever repeated a workout! With Darren as my trainer I've been steadily increasing my strength gains while steadily shedding excess weight and improving my cardio fitness. Darren also provides nutritional counseling, rehabilitative training, and he will travel to your home or business for your workout needs. He really is my 'health and fitness concierge,' and anyone considering personal training services shouldn't pass up the opportunity to train with Darren. Robert N.

I suffered major injuries months ago in a pedestrian/auto accident. After being comatose and then bedridden for months, I was very weak. Physical therapy helped but I was still not strong. At my doctor's suggestion, I hired Darren. He has been working with me three times a week for about a month now and he is amazing. His presence gives me confidence. He is aware of my issues, he watches me closely and is there to help if any problems arise. He is very smart and I have already learned so much from him. I feel very fortunate to have found such an awesome trainer.
