Boot Camp Fitness Programs Shedding Pounds and Trimming Fat!


Mar 25

Getting in shape and trying to lose weight is a tough process with the help of a fitness boot camp helping shed pounds and trimming fat. If you have ever started a weight loss or exercise program and failed, you would not be alone. What is one fairly new program that is helping people all over the world shed pounds and trims body fat?

If you mentioned  fitness boot camp you would be right.Oprah Winfrey, Naomi Campbell, Katie Holmes, Christina Applegate, Days Of Our Lives star and The Biggest Loser host Alison Sweeney, Natalie Raitano, Eliza Dushku, Desperate Housewives’ Teri Hatcher and Nicole Sheridan are just a few of the many celebrities that have participated in fitness boot camp to get in rock star shape. Many stars love the accountability and motivation of the group environment.

So what is a fitness boot camp? A fitness boot camp is just an outdoor fitness class. A fitness boot camp
is just an outdoor fitness class. There are many different types of boot camps and that will be up to you as to which type you would like to participate in. Many are the traditional “Boot Camp” format where the first day of class you get an instructor with army combat boots on, you have to be timed in a mile and a half (when most people have not done
this in years), and do push ups and sit ups. Other boot camps, like the Get You In Shape fitness boot camp is done with all types of fitness levels in a more laid back approach.
Why are fitness boot camps growing so much, so popular, and helping people shed pounds and trim body fat? There a several reasons why fitness boot camps are so popular. The first reason would be because it is performed
in a group. We all enjoy being a part of a group. The fitness boot camps are performed with a class or group of people. We all need emotional supports in different areas of our life. Having a group of people that help encourage, motivate, and inspire each other only helps the experience of getting in shape become more enjoyable.

Fitness Boot Camps are also much more affordable than most plans available. If you wanted to hire a private personal trainer to get in shape, you would have to pay between $40- $100 per session. Many people are looking for a long-term plan and 12 sessions with a personal trainer would cost between $480 and $1200 for a month. You factor in 20 session, which is the amount of session a lot of boot camps are and you are running anywhere between $800 –
$2000 for a month.

 Fitness boot camps range anywhere from $180-$399 a month in the Dallas, TX area. There are Boot camps in Coppell, Lewisville, Carrollton, Irving, Las Colinas, Grapevine, Valley Ranch, and other surrounding Dallas cities that all
charge similar rates. The amount per hour would range from $15-$25 per hour compared to the high prices for private personal training. Most camps have a very qualified personal trainer with experience with group settings. This gives the participant a personal trainer 3-4 months participating in a fitness boot camp for what you would pay for
one month with a private personal trainer. The participant really gets the best of both worlds. The participants get the camaraderie, encouragement, motivation, and inspiration of the group class along with the affordable price of the group class.

Where can you find a local fitness boot camp? One way you can find the available  fitness boot camp in your area is to Google “fitness boot camp” in your town or area to find out if there are any in your area. For example, if you are our area people would google “boot camp Dallas, TX” or “Boot Camp Coppell” or “Boot Camp Valley Ranch” or ‘boot camp Irving” or “boot camp lewisville.” You would just google “boot camp your town” to find all the boot camps in your area. You can also call your local fitness gyms or local city recreation gym to find out what type of boot camp programs are in your area.

Make sure you do some research about the fitness boot camp. How long it has been running, the results, and the people who are in the boot camp are some key questions to ask. In Dallas, you can find a fitness boot camp, in Coppell, Lewisville, Valley Ranch, Irving, Carrollton, Grapevine, Addison, Los Colinas, and other cities close to Dallas, TX

As mentioned above, fitness boot camps usually have a high qualified personal trainer leading it. Many great personal trainers love being able to train many people at once because they love learning the new exercises, teaching wellness, and leading a group of people. It takes a special person to run a good boot camp program. Always check the background of the business and personal trainer or trainers running the program. Make sure you call them and have them answer any questions that you may have regarding their resume or experience. Most boot camps have great websites and are well informed so you can do most of your research online.

Find out how long the certified personal trainer has been leading the boot camp. With so many boot camps starting, there are probably a lot of trainers that are NOT qualified to help all the people in the fitness boot camp. I get a lot of people coming to the Get You in Shape Boot Camp that have been involved with other programs that the trainer was NOT qualified and they got hurt because of the poor teaching. Many program just try to get as many people (quantity) as they can and don’t worry about explaining HOW to properly to the exercises (quality). Our programs are in the Dallas area and there are a lot of boot camps in our area. Coppell, Lewisville, Irving, Valley Ranch, Flower Mound, Dallas, Los Colinas, Carrollton, Addison, and other cities close to Dallas all have fitness boot camps. A good way to find out is to ask for references, have an interview with the trainer, or just by looking at their website. The Get You In Shape boot Camp area of our website has hundreds of pictures, testimonies, and video of actual participants from our programs to that people get a feel for who our programs have helped and who they are for.

The last reason why  fitness boot camps are so popular would be that they are getting results. RESULTS!!! Weight loss, more energy, feel better (and about themselves) ,loss of body fat, increased wellness or health, and many other great RESULTS.  People are shedding pounds and trimming body fat and others are jumping in. People notice their friend has lost some inches, pounds, and body fat and they want to get some of that. Referrals are a huge reason the my program (the Get You In Shape Boot Camp) has grown so much.
