Finding the right boot camp

A boot camp that fits you Finding a boot camp is relatively easy, but finding one that’s fun and meets your fitness goals may take some work.An Internet search for boot camps in your area will probably yield at least a few programs and give details about the class, instructors and prices, which typically range from $20 to $25 per session (prices usually go down if a series is purchased). Many gyms offer boot camp programs as well, but some might charge a fee in addition to regular membership.Word of mouth is a great way to learn about boot camps, so quiz friends about programs they’ve been through. But keep in mind that what works for them may not work for you. Some may thrive under a drill-instructor-type trainer in an outdoor setting, while others prefer a gentler style within the confines of a health club.Try a class at least a few times to see if you and the class are compatible. You may have to sample a few before finding the right fit, but the search will be well worth it.-- Jeannine Stein
