Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a guarantee?
Join camp and put it to the test. You must agree it is everything I say it is and more. Otherwise, just say the word and I’ll issue a fast, no-questions-asked refund. Even if it is the last second of the last day of the month. That means you get a full month to decide if it was worth it.
I’m putting myself on the hook and shouldering all the risk with this guarantee, but I’m not worried because I know the Portland Adventure Boot Camp System flat out works and you WILL get amazing results if you follow my system. It’s tested and proven…and it’s fun.
Where is camp?
Portland Boot Camp is conveniently located at my private gym space (Portland Fitness Gym) at 1606 NE 37th avenue right off the 84 at Broadway and NE 37th. During the summer, we might make excursions outdoors to US Grant Park.
Please note: On Wednesdays, Boot Camp meets outdoors at Mt. Tabor for “Road Work Day” AND indoor. There are both options available on Wednesdays. See the Oregonian article about it here: Portland Boot Camp at Mt. Tabor
New evening hours and locations may be added soon. Let us know if you are interested in a different location or area of town.
When is Camp?
Camp meets 6 days per week, Monday-Saturday12 months a year. Except major holidays.
What time does camp meet and what days per week?
Each camp is an hour a day. There are 5 class times daily: 5:30-6:30am, 7:15-8:15am, 9-10am, 4:45-5:45pm and 6-7pm. We also have a Saturday class at 9am. If, after your free consultation, you are offered an opportunity to become a member, you may choose to attend 3, 4, or 5 days per week. You may also choose to invest in a monthly membership at a discount. If you choose to attend 3 days a week, we suggest you go MWF. But if your schedule won’t permit those 3 days, any other 3 will work. If you start with 3 days and want to upgrade we will just prorate the difference.
New times will be added soon. Let us know if you are interested in different class times.
How much does camp cost?
To hire a good trainer you would easily pay $65 per hour (or more to train with the best.) That means 20 sessions would be a whopping $1300, which comes to more than a dollar a minute.
For years, clients paid that much and more to train privately with me. However, you won’t have to pay that to take advantage of my tested and proven system. Your investment will depend on your goals and needs. Memberships last 3, 6, or 12 months and the average price is between $200-$300 per month…or about $15 per session average. That’s more than a whopping 75% less per session than you would have to fork over for personal training! Even better…you still get all the attention, personal programming, and world-class training you would get if you paid for a personal trainer! Portland Boot Camp is personal training combined with the support of a group workout.
What exactly is Boot Camp?
Portland Adventure Boot Camp is a unique, safe, and exciting way for women to have FUN with a great group of women while they reshape their bodies and take control of their health. There is no yelling or judgment. In fact, it’s more like a fitness party than a traditional class. You’ll probably make new friends for life.
We do body-weight training, dumbbell training, some running, sometimes we jump rope, perform elastic band work, circuit training, special trips to Mt. Tabor, some Pilates moves, some stretching, some yoga, we play fitness games, we laugh, we kid around…but we take our fitness very seriously.
The beauty of camp is this: not only is it fun, but never boring because every single day is different. We are way past 1000 workouts now and no two have been exactly alike!
You’ll get to take advantage of my years of experience and find out how to take control of your body and reshape it as you see fit… all while having a blast.
Plus it’s 100% GUARANTEED.
What do I need to bring to camp?
You will need to bring a water bottle, a yoga mat if you want your own (though I have plenty), a foam roller (I get mine at Fit Right Northwest on NW 23rd avenue.), and a sense of adventure.
What kinds of women join your camp?
You’ll be inspired and motivated by women who are committed to improving their health. Now, some of our campers are beginners wanting to jump-start their program, and some are veteran exercisers, ready for a new challenge. Most of our campers have some history of exercise, but it is not required. Don’t worry, during your free consultation we’ll determine how we’ll safely adjust your workout, so it’s just right for you.
What fitness level is the class? Will I fit in?
There is no set level for the class. We’ll encourage you to push yourself while reminding you to listen to your body. A word of caution: if you have more than 100 pounds to lose, have bad knees or bad back, boot camp may not be right for you. Please contact us to discuss your fitness level if you have concerns. We are happy to refer you to a trusted colleague who can prepare you for boot camp.
What about a diet plan?
I’ve got you covered. As part of camp, you’ll get personalized food advice and you’ll also get a complimentary copy of my book “The Fat Blaster Eating Guide”. This guide is straightforward, easy to do, and flat out works. It’s literally responsible for thousands of pounds lost. One woman actually lost 15lbs in a single camp. (of real body fat not just water or muscle like you see on TV!) I tell you exactly what works what supplements work and what don’t. What foods work and what to avoid like the plague. No fad dieting. Just straightforward RESULTS!
Will I get sore?
This is not an easy class. In fact, it’s very challenging. That’s why we get incredible results. So, many boot campers feel soreness for the first few days. After that, you may experience occasional moderate soreness. It’s all part of the process of improving your physical condition and moving towards the new you. It’s the good kind of soreness.
Will we get Before and After measurements – do we get an orientation?
First you’ll get your free consultation which can last up to a hour or more if necessary. Then, once you are a member, you’ll get a free 30 minute evaluation before and free 15 minute follow ups every 4 weeks with a qualified professional. We’ll explain everything and we’ll talk about any questions or concerns you have. We’ll go over your goals and review your medical and fitness history. We take simple measurements to find out where you are now if you want to. We don’t judge you by what the measurements show. It is completely confidential. It’s strictly for post-camp comparison so you can see how well you did. We will examine your posture to determine if your back is healthy. We will analyze your body composition and estimate your body fat percentage. 5 days per week campers can expect a 1-3% reduction in body fat in their first 4-week camp. Then every four weeks, we’ll meet to adjust your meal plans, intensity levels, and work on anything else you need to keep you marching straight to your goal.
How do I join? I want RESULTS!
First we need to sit down together to determine your needs and create a solid plan of action you can use right away — whether or not you choose to invest in a membership. We also need to determine if boot camp is a match for you.
The truth is, Portland Boot Camp isn’t for everyone, and quite frankly, not everyone who applies is accepted for membership. We are looking for women who are 100% committed to reaching their goals, who are willing to take professional instruction, and who like to have fun. If that’s you, then we’d love to invited you to schedule your free health, fitness, and weight-loss consultation.
