FAQ’s

HOW LONG IS EACH BootCampWF WORKOUT?

BCWF and BCWF Lite workouts last for one-hour. and BCWF TRX are 45-minutes long. Every workout begins with a warm-up, works the entire body, and ends with stretching. A BootCampWF Session runs for six weeks and we recommend a recruit train with us at least 3-4 times per week to get optimum results. And that is not difficult, with the multitude of complementary classes we have to offer — the more you do it, the more you get out of it!

WHAT CAN I EXPECT TO GET OUT OF THE BootCampWF PROGRAM?

  • You can expect to work the entire body each time you attend. While we do something different every day to keep it interesting, all workouts include a warm-up with dynamic stretching, some type of cardio drill (including obstacle courses, hill training, short distance sprints, etc), strength training and abdominal work, and end with static stretching.
  • A chance to workout in the great outdoors.
  • By the end of a six-week session, you will have gone through a body-changing experience, have increased your energy and confidence level, have met some great people with similar goals to yours and will have had fun while doing it.

DO I NEED TO BRING ANYTHING TO BootCampWF?

All you need to bring is an exercise mat, small hand weights (5-10 lbs.), a water bottle and a sense of adventure!

DO I HAVE TO BE IN SHAPE TO JOIN? IF I’M NOT, WILL I BE ABLE TO DO IT?

Regardless of age, size, shape, gender or fitness level, our mission is to help you get into great shape, reduce stress, lose weight, increase energy and build confidence. Of course, you should always consult with your physician before beginning any exercise program. When you register, you’ll be asked what you think your current fitness level is and if you have any pre-existing conditions that might limit what you can do. Your instructor will offer modifications of exercises based on the current fitness levels in the workout program. For those just beginning an exercise program who may need a gentler approach, we offer BCWF Lite, a wellness program where the focus will be on reconnecting with your body and getting it moving on a regular basis in a supportive and nature-filled environment. Please feel free to talk to your instructor about any special needs you may have prior to starting the program. You can contact us at BootCampWF@yahoo.com. If you still feel you’re not ready for the program, our instructors are certified personal trainers and can design a program specifically for you, with the goal to get you ready for the next BootCampWFsession.

I WORKOUT REGULARLY AND FEEL I LIKE I’M IN GREAT SHAPE — WILL I GET ANYTHING OUT OF THE PROGRAM?

We think so. When you register, you’ll be asked what you think your current fitness level is. Based on the make-up of the program at the time, we design it to challenge everyone. We offer modifications on all exercises and at times, break the class up into groups based on fitness level. We can put you in touch with the triathletes, marathoners and college athletes who have already completed a session, all of whom loved it and felt they were challenged enough.

I BELONG TO A GYM – WHY WOULD I ALSO DO BootCampWF?

Most people go to a gym and do the same workout every day. At some point, pretty early on, your muscles get used to doing the same thing day in and day out and you reach a plateau, so that the benefit of doing these exercises rapidly declines. BootCampWF workouts are different each day, work the whole-body in many different ways, and utilize the whole park so you never get bored with your surroundings like you might in a gym setting. Plus we offer so many classes, including BCWF TRX, at such reasonable prices, that you really don’t even need a gym membership!

WHAT IF I CAN’T COMMIT TO 3 OR MORE DAYS A WEEK FOR 6 WEEKS?

You will get the maximum benefit out of training with us at least 3 times per week over the 6-week program, but you can do it as often as your schedule allows. Obviously, you get out of it what you put into it and your results will not be as dramatic with fewer days. At these low rates, the entire program is worth every penny!

WHAT IF I MISS A CLASS?

If you miss a class for whatever reason, you can make it up ON ANY DAY AT ANY TIME DURING THE CURRENT SESSION, including Saturdays. If you need to put your classes on hold DUE TO ILLNESS, INJURY OR FAMILY EMERGENCY, we will be happy to do that for you. We strongly encourage you to complete the classes you signed up for during the current session, and with so many to choose from, it should be no problem! If you are unsure about how many classes you want to or can do during a 6-week session, you can always purchase a 10-pack and use it at any time during the course of a year — does not need to be used during that particular 6-week session! Or there’s always the pay-as-you-go option.

WHAT IF THE WEATHER IS EXTREMELY BAD?

We will workout in rain or shine (but nor’easters and blizzard conditions may not be conducive). We will also cancel if temperatures are below 10 degrees F. There is actually a covered area in Tamaques Park where we have worked out before and will use that during inclement conditions. In the event that a workout is cancelled for weather-related conditions, we will post it on our web site (www.BootCampWF.com) at least 60 minutes before the scheduled start time. All full-time enrollees (minimum of 18 classes in a 6-week session) are able to make up a cancelled workout during the current or the following session.

I’M STILL NOT READY TO COMMIT — CAN I TRY OUT A CLASS?

If you’re still not ready to commit, your first class is on us! If at the end of the class, you’re convinced that this will be a body-changing experience for you (and it will!), ENLIST!
