Fitness doesn't necessarily mean that you have to join a gym and go move some big machines around for 45 minutes. Fitness is what you make it. We believe that being active is essential to a healthy life. We believe that fitness isn't just achieved through personal effort but achieved through a group of like minded individuals. We strive to create a positive environment that encourages a healthy mind and body.

Is this like a military bootcamp?
With a ton of respect for our brave men and women of our armed forces, joefitness bootcamp is in no way like a military bootcamp. You won't hear any whistles, no yelling at your face, no dirt, mud, or grass, just good music and motivation from the trainers. Think of our classes as an hybrid group exercise class that uses lots of different methods to get you fit fast!

Do you have showers at your gym?
We do not. We do have a bathroom/changing room and plenty of cubby storage for your items, but we do not have a shower.

How does personal training work?
Personal training is a personal focus on getting the most out of your workouts and nutrition! Our training sessions last about 30 - 45 minutes. We do training in small groups because we know you'll work a lot harder when there are two or three other people with you (don't worry we pair you with similar fitness levels).

What types of members are in bootcamp?
Most of our members are females between the ages of 24 - 45. We have a wide variety exercise levels, so whether you're a pure beginner looking to get started or an advanced exerciser looking to get your butt kicked, we have a solution for you!

How do you handle payments?
We autobill our members on the 5th of each month directly from a checking or savings account. If you happen to join in the middle of the month, we will prorate the remainder of the month. Any changes(new card, hold, cancellation, etc.) need to be submitted by the 15th of the month prior to your next billing. We are always month to month so you are never locked in a long term contract. Hey, we figure, if you LOVE IT you'll stay, so why make you commit to a long term deal.

Do you offer punch cards?
Sorry we don't offer punch cards. joefitness bootcamps are designed to get you the best bang for your buck. Our unlimited plan lets you have access to as many classes a month as you can handle. By doing this we have more face time with our clients and our clients get more results!

How do I get the best results from your classes?
Short answer: Show up. The members that get the best results are the ones that are the most consistent. We can help you with your diet, we'll make sure you're doing the exercises correctly, but none of this matters if you're not consistent.

I'm an absolute beginner, will these classes be hard?
In just a few classes you will get the hang of it. Our type of classes allows you to pace yourself as needed. Also, you are always under the watchful eye of one of our trainers, so we are there if you need us.

I'm currently or plan to train for a race (marathon, half, 10k, 5k), can I still do your workouts?
Yes, absolutely. The type of interval training you see at joefitness bootcamps is perfect for the cross training you should be including in your running preparation. There is one exception, if you are training for your first full marathon, we'd advise you not to do our class as your training schedule will be pretty full. However, if you plan to train for a half, 10k, 5k, relay, our bootcamps are a perfect fit for your cross training. We have a TON of members that report that they have had to run less miles and still set personal record times!

My knee/back/shoulder bothers me sometimes, can you modify the workouts for me?
For sure! There are a ton of ways to modify our workouts to accommodate for minor injuries. We do ask that you are cleared by a doctor if the injury was recent and/or a result of a major incident.

What if I join and it's not for me?
Hey, it happens. This is why we offer our first two weeks for free. We encourage everyone interested to at least try it. It's very addictive!
