PROGRAM / CLASS DETAILS
What results can I expect from my sessions with you?
The great thing about Body Beautiful Bootcamp is that each class is always different and always fun. You will get a full body workout every time, using a combination or various fitness equipment and athletic drills. Exercises include everything from free weights, body weight, kettlebells, ladders, medicine balls, equalizer bars and many other fun fitness “toys”. Drills vary from circuit style workouts, group or partner exercises, kickboxing, plyometrics, fitness games and much much more!
The classes are structured to be part of a 4 or 8 week program. Each week the classes progress in intensity as we move through the program. This way you continue to challenge your body and get results.
What is the intensity level of the classes? Is it suitable for all levels?
Out Fitness Bootcamp classes are designed in such way that you are going to get results no matter what fitness level you are. Yes this means that the classes are tough, you will work up a sweat! However, the program is designed in such way to be challenging for the fittest participants and yet suitable for novice trainees. This is managed by having various “levels” of the exercises. The three levels are Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced. No matter what your fitness level is you will be able to keep up with the rest of the class and get an amazing workout. You will leave the class feeling amazing and really worked out!

Can I just come in and do a drop in class or pay as you go?
Unfortunately no. There is a couple of reasons for this. Our classes are unique in a way that they are all designed to be part of a program where each class accelerates as we move along. We also do a lot of group or partner work where individuals may be assigned a partner to work with based on matching them with a person/group of similar fitness level. Also, our classes are almost always full and we like to maintain quality service and keep a certain capacity to make sure each individual gets the attention they deserve. You are more than welcome to come and watch a class. Just email Ana Plenter at [email protected] and we can get you signed in to come into the facility.
Are classes interchangeable? If I sign up for a specific location or time can I attend another location or timeslot?
Our classes have a capacity, we account for a certain number of attendees per class . Therefore, if you sign up for a specific location/time this is the bootcamp you are expected to attend. A rare exception may be made from time to time (depending on the reason and given there is room in a certain bootcamp) if these arrangements are made BEFORE the date your bootcamp program begins. Please email [email protected] with your request. Once the bootcamp classes begin you will only be eligible to attend the class you signed up for.
What happens if I have to miss a class? What if I will be on vacation or have an extended business trip?
In order to get the most out of the program we expect that you attend all the classes. However, if you must miss a class and you let us know at least 24 hours in advance (by email to [email protected]), you will be granted one makeup credit for the month you are registered for. A makeup credit can be given to do a makeup class in one of the other bootcamps within your program period subject to class not being full. Because we are limited in size and each month bootcampers reserve their spot to attend the given period they are enrolled in makeup classes can not be transferred to the following bootcamp month. A maximum of one makeup credit will be granted per 4 week period you are enrolled in, all other missed sessions will be waived. For further details regarding how to request for such credit and eligibility please refer to our Terms of Service.

No, pregnant women are not able to participate in any bootcamp sessions unless otherwise given permission by their physician. Women who have recently given birth should wait at least 6 weeks post pregnancy to attend any bootcamp sessions (or any other strenuous activity) and should always check with their doctor first before starting to exercise.
Can I attend bootcamp if I have a knee/hip/shoulder or other joint injuries?
We are more than happy to provide modifications to any of the exercises we do in our classes, go at your own pace, and still get an amazing workout while working around an injury.
