COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT BOOT CAMP

Are there advantages to exercising outside?

Absolutely! Exercising outside is a natural source of rejuvenation. Exercising in the open air invigorates your body and calms your mind. You will find it to be a refreshing alternative to the sweaty crowds and high noise levels commonly found at health clubs and community gyms.

How do I sign up now?

Go to the Registration Page and fill out the form. After filling out the registration form, please follow the payment instructions, we accept cash, check or you can also pay secure online paypal via credit card. Once we've received your registration information, you will receive information regarding the pre-camp evaluation and nutrition seminar.
***There is a one-time nutrition and pre-camp body fat evaluation and nutrition seminar required of all first time campers which is held prior to the start of your camp. Upon registration you will receive more details regarding the nutrition seminar.   This seminar is essential for you to understand how you will be specifically required to eat during camp in order to maximize the loss of excess fat and/or to learn how to eat in order to rapidly recover from the boot camp exercises. 

Boot CampWhat is the Pre Camp Evaluation?

The Pre-Camp Evaluation will also include the following:

  1. We will give you an introduction to Boot Camp and answer any questions you may have. We will also review your medical history.
  2. 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.
  3. We will record your weight and measure your body fat percentage. Again, the numbers don't matter. We just want to be able to measure your improvement. Don't be surprised if you see a 3-8% reduction (or MORE) in your body fat over the four weeks!


T-shirt when you complete camp!

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 can prorate the cost.  Just fill out the registration form, and let us know that you want to join the camp already in session. If you missed some days we will normally have you register for the 3 Day option and make up the days you missed.  We'll send an email invoice for the appropriate amount.  

What if I sign up for the 3-day plan and then want to do all 20 days of the camp?

This actually happens almost every time a person starts with 3 days per week. They have so much fun; they ask to do all the days. You will simply be prorated from the point you decide to join for all 5 days.

Will I be sore sometimes?

Many boot campers feel some soreness for the first 2-3 days. After that, it is slight to moderate. It's all part of the process of improving your physical condition!  Coach Rhonda will give you lots of guidance on how to quickly eliminate or minimize this through diet and other wonderful, inexpensive ways.

What kind of people go to camp?

You'll be inspired, encouraged, and motivated by other people, just like you, who are seriously committed to improving their health and fitness levels! Some of our campers are beginners wanting to jump-start their program, and some are veteran exercisers ready for a new challenge. Others are simply, just tired of the same old boring routines at noisy and crowded gyms wanting something new & different. Port City Adventure Boot Camp is an all women’s camp, comprised of a group of women 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 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.

Don't worry! We'll adjust your workout, so it's just right for you! Remember, ALL FITNESS LEVELS ARE ACCEPTED and ENCOURAGED!Boot Campers

What level is the class? Will I fit in?

Every class has every level of fitness represented in it, from marathon runners to people who have never worked out before in their lives. You go at your pace in this class, with an instructor encouraging you to push yourself, while, also, reminding you to listen to your body. You'll be surprised at how well you will fit in, as long as you come with a positive attitude and a willingness to work hard.

Is there a refund policy?

If you are unable to attend camp due to circumstances out of your control, we can offer you a refund if you notify us prior to your session start date. However we will charge a $65.00 cancellation fee or we can give you a credit toward another boot camp that must be used within 3 months and must be used within the same calendar year.  It is your responsibility to show up; we will not freeze memberships because of personal mishaps, vacations, illnesses etc. There are no make up sessions in another camp. Any credit received is nontransferable. Credit is not given toward private fitness training. There is no cash refund. This is not negotiable.

What if my alarm doesn't go off or I feel sick one day? Can I do a make-up class?

No. We do not have "make-up" classes. If you miss a class...you, simply, miss a class. However, we do expect and we want you to work out with us every day. That's how you get the best and quickest results! Your campmates will be there pulling for you to show up every day and you will not want to let them down.

We care, and will personally teach you the tools you need for a lifetime of success.  We will also call if you do not show up on one of your scheduled training days, because we want you to succeed like so many others have succeeded!  Please know that when you commit to a 4-week membership contract, any missed scheduled workout is missed, no make-up day.  Commit to these 4 weeks....and radically change the direction of your health and your body while having a fantastic time and meeting incredible new friends too!  YOU CAN DO THIS!!

What makes Port City Adventure Boot Camps different from other "bootcamps"?

BEWARE OF IMITATORS! Adventure Boot Camps are one of the only truly Certified boot camp companies in North Carolina. Our trainers are specially certified to teach boot camp style training. Most boot camps are ran by personal trainers who have a "personal training" certification and no special training on how to teach boot camp style training to people of all fitness levels from beginner to advanced. Some women with different injuries or high blood pressure etc. may need certain modifications and trainers without the knowledge or background may not recognize this.

What is a typical day like at camp?

That's difficult to say since each day is intentionally different to alleviate boredom. You can expect a combination of some light running, weight training, obstacle courses, core training, cardio, kickboxing, Pilates, Yoga, and jumping rope all into 1 unique program. Its a progressive program over four weeks. The workouts are specifically designed for women to get the most results in the shortest amount of time. On special days, we may take a field trip to a different location. It's always an adventure, and you'll always have fun! We teach you a great deal about proper form and "core stability."

How soon will I see results?

Performance improvement can take place in as little as 3 days. Visual improvement can take from 2 to 4 weeks depending on your effort level and commitment. It's not uncommon to see as much as 3-8 pounds of weight loss after the first week. Remember, everyone is different! Note: Every individual is different and will experience different results when participating in Port City Adventure Boot Camp. If you want to lose weight and are under 18, pregnant, nursing, following a diet recommended by a doctor, have health problems or want to lose more than 30 pounds, see a doctor before starting Port City Adventure Boot Camp.

What if it rains?

Boot campers are tough, so we boot camp in the rain. The only time we cancel camp is if there is lightning present. If you have any doubt, click the little weather icon in the top right corner of the home page of our website within 30 minutes of camp beginning to see any weather related last minute announcements. If camp is canceled, a make up day will be scheduled.

What will I do after camp is over?

You will schedule your post-evaluation. You will be re-measured and re-tested. Excited about your progress and success, you will probably choose to do what many (up to 85%) of our campers do...sign up for another boot camp! Consider making it a permanent and regular part of your workout regimen. It may be just what you need to keep you motivated and your exercise routine challenging. Post-evaluations take less than 15 minutes to complete.
