FAQs

I'm a little nervous about signing up, how can I be sure that I'll get the results I want?

If you are truly committed to reaching the goals we set together, follow our coaching, attend all of the workouts and honestly give it your all, we are confident that you will see tremendous improvements in just 30 days. Our instructors recieve specialized training not only in fitness instruction, but on how to motivate our clients.

We are committed to providing you with a program that produces real results, and if you are dissatisfied for any reason, please let us know so we can make it right!

How will my body change, and when can I expect to see results?

Results of the program are that you will become leaner, and build fat-burning muscle without becoming bulky. Many campers lose at least one clothing size and discover their bodies have become firmer as they have exchanged fat for muscle. Get ready to start flexing your guns for all your family and friends!

I'm totally out of shape. How fit do I need to be to participate in this program?

Our ability to serve every fitness level is one of the unique and amazing things about boot camp. You don’t need to be able to run a 5K to join us-we’d love to help push you out of your comfort zone and help you reach your goals. You should be able to do a run-walk interval-try running to one mailbox, then speed walk to the next and so on. Be sure to get your doctor’s approval and feel free to contact us to discuss any concerns.

I am not a runner, is this program for me?

If you are unable to run because your doctor says you shouldn’t – then this program may not be for you. If you are unsure, give us a call and we can help you determine a plan of action. But if you have just a belief that you are not a runner, or just don’t like running, then you should absolutely give the program a try! Many of our instructors started out in boot camp and were not “runners”. We have designed our program on a progressive schedule to help you increase your endurance at a level you can handle. Although there is some running every day, our workouts vary so that we don’t just “run” all the time. When we do run, you will not be left by yourself. Our instructors are trained to help you every step of the way.

I follow a workout plan now, will boot camp really challenge me?

YES! Boot camp pushes you to an intensity level that most people are unable to reach on their own. We’ve helped Boston marathoners, triathletes and fitness enthusiasts bring their training and fitness to the next level. We’ve helped many runners cut minutes off their race times as well as build up their muscles to prevent injury. Our program offers cross training that benefits all kinds of athletes as well as first time fitness participants.

I'm on a special diet. Do I have to alter my food plans to your specifications?

Diets like Weight Watchers are usually ok, because you can easily adjust your food intake so you are consuming enough calories to fuel your body for energetic workouts. If you are on a restricted calorie diet, then it is likely that you will need to supplement your food intake to give your body the energy it needs to participate in our intense workouts. Contact us, and let’s talk about it if you are unsure. We want to help!

I have some physical limitations, can I still participate?

It depends on the nature and severity of the injury or limitations you may have. It would be best to call and chat with our sales team to determine if boot camp is right for you. Generally speaking, people who can walk briskly, jog at least a little bit and can jump without issues tend to do just fine in our camps. You should get clearance from a doctor before you begin the program with us, regardless.

What is the schedule like?

You will work out with your boot camp group 18 times in a session, which lasts 4 weeks. Each week you will have 4 or 5 scheduled, group workouts. You’ll spend about 1 hour with us each time, for consultation, workout, and cool-down. The specific days of the week you will work out will depend on the location and time slot you choose, so please visit the location page to get specifics. On days you are not working out with the group, you will be doing assigned ‘homework’ workouts on your own. The homework workouts are simple and require no equipment.

How do I determine if my schedule will work with this program?

Our main goal is to get our clients fantastic results, so if you have to miss more than 4 workouts within the session, then we won’t be able to deliver on our promise. Depending on the week, we work out 4 or 5 days, and some groups might offer a make-up workout, but that can vary with each group. Go to the location page to find the camp you’re interested in and look at the specific schedule for the time and location for more details. If you are still unsure, please don’t hesitate to contact us, we’ll be happy to help!

What makes this different than other boot camps?

Our experience in the fitness industry began in 1995, and we created our boot camp program in 2000. We have helped thousands of people with their fitness goals and have led the way in the marketplace. The design of the program, with accountability, length of program, and a team of enthusiastic and well trained instructors is the recipe for a program that produces consistent results for our clients.

Do I need to bring any equipment or gear to the workouts?

The most important thing you need to bring is a great attitude. Other than that, you just need comfortable workout clothing and a good pair of cross training or running shoes that are less than 6 months old. You will receive more details about this once you sign up for a camp.
