What if I'm not very physically fit?

What is the Pre Camp Evaluation?
See you at camp!
The Pre-Camp Evaluation includes the following:
We will give you an introduction to Boot Camp and answer any questions you may have. We will also review your medical history.
We will take a few simple 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!
We will make sure you know how to get to camp in the morning so you don’t have any excuses!
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. If you've already missed a substantial number of days, we will prorate the cost. Just fill out the registration form, and let us know that you want to join the camp already in session. We'll send an email invoice for the appropriate amount.
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 if I sign up for the three day plan and then want to do more days of the camp?
After starting camp, many people realize how fun and convenient it is so they request to sign up for more days. In addition, they realize that the more days they attend camp the greater the results. In these situations, you will simply be pro-rated from the point you decide to join us for more days.
Will I be sore sometimes?
Most people feel some soreness for the first 2-3 days. 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 15 - 65+. Some have never exercised, and some are competitive runners looking to train for the next race. Some have over 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 handicapped children waiting for them at home. They are a group of women and men 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 and men 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!
