COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT BOOT CAMP
How do I sign up now?
Go to the registration page and fill out the registration form as a first time camper. Once we've received your information, you should receive an email with a pdf document attached with further instructions.
What is the Pre Camp Evaluation?
The Pre-Camp Evaluation will be held every 8 weeks and includes the following:
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, you will receive a prorated amount. Just fill out the registration form, and let us know that you want to join the camp already in session. We'll send a PayPal invoice for the appropriate amount.
What if I can't make it at the time I registered for?
No worries. We understand that life sometimes interferes with your daily lives beyond control. If you can't make it to class the time you registered, you can attend an earlier or later class that same day at any location.
What Gwinnett County Adventure Boot Camp is not:
A militaristic style format where you will be humiliated. A competitive environment where you will be pushed beyond your abilities. Once again, this is a friendly, fun environment where everyone works to the best of there ability. Montrell has trained hundreds of individuals over the past 10 years ranging from young children to morbidly obese individuals as well as those with severe medical conditions. You have everything to gain by joining. Don’t let any false fears hold you back. You deserve to be in the body of your dreams and this camp can get you there.
Do you need to be held accountable? Do you need motivation? Would you like to meet fun people?
If you answered "YES" to any of these questions, Gwinnett County Boot Camp is for you!
What do I need to bring to camp?
You will need to bring one set of 5 - 8 lb. hand weights and any type of exercise mat (You can get both of these at any local Target or Wal-Mart type store). The plush kind is typically better than the yoga mat in terms of comfort. You will also want to bring water to keep yourself hydrated during camp. We also recommend you bring a towel to dry off with and gloves or mittens in the winter. Dress in layers and even if it is chilly don’t worry - you will get warm very fast! And always bring a good attitude!
What if I sign up for the two day plan and then want to do more days of the camp?
After starting camp, many women 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 handicap children waiting for them at home. They are 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!
Is there a refund policy?
We can only give you a credit towards another boot camp if you are unable to continue with the one you began because of circumstances beyond your control. This credit is nontransferable. Credit is not given towards private training. There is no cash refund.
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 mat work, some running (less than 1 mile), weight training, obstacle courses, and jumping rope each week. On special days, we will go hiking and play sports-related games. It's always an adventure, and you'll always have fun! Gwinnett County Adventure Boot Camp coaches 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 three days. You will feel less bloated and more energetic in the first week. "Visual Improvement" can take from two to four weeks depending on your effort level and complementing your workouts with healthful eating. It's becoming common to see a camper go down 1-2 dress sizes within the first camp. Remember, everyone is different!
What if it rains?
This is an outdoor boot camp and inclement weather can occur at any time so we will still meet if it is raining. If it is raining hard, then we will meet under the pavilion if permissible. Class will only be cancelled if it is lightning. If weather is questionable, click on the weather logo at the top right on the home screen for details and/or call Montrell for confirmation.
