Questions? We have answers!
Do I have to be in shape for boot camp?
Anyone can do boot camp. The purpose of boot camp is to help you reach your wellness goals, regardless of your current fitness level. Each workout is scalable to your fitness level – whatever that may be.
I’m not able to do some exercises. Can I still participate?
Due to pre-existing conditions or injuries, we all may not be able to complete every exercise. That’s why we offer modifications or alternatives to make sure you get a great workout – even if you have to do something slightly different.
What is a typical workout like?
No workout is the same but they typically consist of a combination of aerobic and strength-building exercises. You can be assured that each and every workout is the optimal combination of fun and challenging.
What equipment do I need?
You only need a good pair of running shoes (or cross-trainers), comfortable workout clothes, and a re-usable water bottle to have an enjoyable boot camp workout.
Some other items you might want or need: a towel for when you are done with your workout, light weights (5-10 lbs) for special bonus workouts we offer, and a yoga mat for the foam roller class we offer.
How many days a week is boot camp?
Boot camp is typically held 4–5 days a week, depending on the calendar, and you are expected to attend every day. The calendar is always available on this site, and any last-minute modifications will be emailed to you.
Our typical schedule follows this pattern: starting on the first TUESDAY of each month, we meet Tue-Fri the first week; and meet Mon, Tue, Thu, Fri the remaining three weeks. Of course, this must occasionally change to accommodate for holidays, so please check the calendar if you’re ever unsure.
What if I can’t attend one day?
If you can’t attend boot camp, you should email us to let us know you can’t attend. You are allowed to make up two missed classes during the next boot camp session.
What if it is rainy or cold? Do we still work out?
If it rains you get wet. If it’s cold, we’ll make sure you aren’t cold for long. But, yes, we’ll still be out there and expect you to make the same effort.
Do I have to diet to get in shape?
No. We will work with you to help you make better food choices and create better eating habits, such as smaller meals eaten more frequently throughout the day, which will benefit you long term.
How quickly will I see results?
Every body is different, so how quickly you see results will vary. In our experience, people typically start to notice a change within a few weeks.
Why does it start at 5:45 am?
We can’t think of a better way to start the day than with a morning workout. More importantly, it’s the one time of day where few of us have conflicts. No work meetings, deadlines or other conflicts occur before the sun comes up, so we meet at 5:45 am. No excuses.
Do you offer a “lite” version of boot camp?
The intention of this program is to be your core fitness routine. If you commit to showing up, we’ll commit to helping you get some awesome results. This is not intended to be a supplemental fitness program to whatever else you’re doing.
We are the only boot camp in Atlanta that donates 100% of our proceeds to local causes – while also being one of the least expensive fitness options in town – so even if you choose to only come two days per week, we believe that our cost is still quite reasonable, given our mission.
How do you choose the non-profits that benefit from your profits?
We select non-profits that are near and dear to our trainers and boot campers, so if you have a suggestion for where we can donate our proceeds, please let us know.
