What is the Pre Camp Evaluation?

The Pre-Camp Evaluation includes the following:

  1. We will give you an introduction to Boot Camp and answer any questions you may have. We will also review your medical history and discuss any questions or concerns you may have.
  2. We will give you a sheet for measurements to see where you are prior to beginning camp. We don't care what the measurements show. It's strictly for a post-camp comparison. These numbers and all other information will be held in the strictest confidence. Remember, the more consistent you are the better your results will be!
  3. We will make sure you know how to get to camp in the morning so you don’t have any excuses!
  4. See you at camp!

 

I see that a particular camp just started!  I just found out about it. Can I still join?

If the camp session is not already full, then absolutely.  Many people are so excited about the boot camp program, they want to start right away and not wait for the next camp to begin.  This happens often, so chances are you aren't the only one joining at a certain point. Safety is our first concern.  First time campers are free to join anytime during the first week of camp.  Once week two has begun, foundation and base building has already been completed.  For camper safety and optimal results new campers are encouraged to sign-up for the next 4 week session.

If you find that the currently offered sessions are already full (which definitely happens), you may have to wait until the next camp begins (usually no more than 5 weeks). But don't wait to sign up - you don't want to be left behind again!

What do I need to bring to camp?

You will need to bring one set of 8-12 lb. hand weights (both weights are preferred) and any type of exercise mat (You can get both of these at any Canadian Tire or Walmart). You will also want to bring water to keep yourself hydrated during camp. Optional items are a towel to dry off with and gloves or mittens for cooler weather.  Make sure you wear good quality "running shoes"  (not cross trainers etc.) to reduce the chance of getting shin splints.  Dress in layers and even if it is chilly don’t worry - you will get warm very fast!  And always bring a good attitude!

Will I be sore sometimes?

Most people feel some soreness for the first week they begin any new exercise program. After that point, it is slight to moderate. It's part of the process that lets you improve!

What kinds of people go to camp?

They are people just like you. They range in age from 20 - 55+. Some have never exercised, and some are competitive runners looking to train for the next race.  Some have 100 pounds to lose, and some need to gain weight.  Some have had surgeries, injuries or recent multiple births. Some have husbands overseas, some have eating disorders, some have children with special needs waiting for them at home. They are a group of women who want something better for themselves. They want results, they want to feel great, they want to reclaim their energy, feel attractive and be the very best they can be.  These women are looking to jump start their fitness and get fast results. They are determined and committed and many admit they were scared to sign up and get started, but later were SO glad they did!Boot Campers

Is there a refund policy?

If you are unable to attend camp due to circumstances out of your control, we can offer you a refund if you notify us prior to your session start date however we will charge a $50.00 cancellation fee. If you need to cancel due to a medical issue or injury, no problem; please submit your cancellation request along with your doctor notification. If we are notified after your session begins, we can only give you a credit towards another boot camp. This credit must be used within 45 days of original camp start date. This credit is nontransferable. There is no cash refund. This is not negotiable.

What is a typical day like at camp?

That's difficult to say since each day is intentionally different to alleviate boredom. You can expect some light running/jogging, weight training, body weight resistence, obstacle courses, core training, stretching, functional training and jumping rope each week. Pilates-like and yoga-like exercises will also be included for a very well-rounded workout! On special days, you will go hiking, play games, or participate in a PAR (Parks and Recreation) Day. It's always an adventure, and you'll always have fun! We teach you a great deal about proper form and "core stability."

How soon will I see results?

Performance improvement can take place in as little as three days. You will feel less bloated and more energetic in the first week. "Visual Improvement" can take from two to four weeks depending on your effort level and complimenting your workouts with healthful eating. It's becoming common to see a camper go down 1-2 dress sizes within the first camp.  Remember, everyone is different!

What if it rains?

Boot campers are tough, so we boot camp in the rain. The only time we cancel camp is if there is lightning present. If you have any doubt, click the little weather icon in the top right corner of the home page of our website within 30 minutes of camp beginning to see any weather related last minute announcements. If camp is canceled, a make up day will be scheduled.

Do you have a nutrition plan that you recommend?

Yes.  This will be discussed based on goals and lifestyle.

What will I do after camp is over?

You will get re-measured and tested to show your progress and success in the program. Many (up to 80%) of the campers enjoy the program so much, they never leave.

Any other boot camp stuff I need to know? 

We understand that the summer and holidays are a precarious time in our campers schedules, therefore we require a minimum attendance (registration) of ten (10) campers to run a camp. Registration is not complete until payment has been made.
