Boot Camp FAQs
Q. Are there showers and locker rooms available?
A. Since we are not affiliated with a gym facility, we do not offer locker rooms and showers. However there are many gyms close by that you may already be a member of. Most women either go home to shower or go straight to the gym to shower and get ready for work.
Q. What should I bring with me?
A. An exercise mat, 1 set of small hand weights (3,5 OR 8 lbs), reusable water bottle, appropriate running sneakers, and a a desire to change your life! You can purchase mats and weights at Modells, Sports Authority or other sports equipment stores.
Q. What can I achieve from camp?
A. Your body will become more fit and toned, and you will gain more confidence making a dramatic improvement in your physical well-being. The camp program includes exercises designed to firm your butt and thighs, flatten your stomach, reduce body fat and increase stamina. By losing fat and gaining muscle, you’ll lose inches and gain strength while looking and feeling better. Also, you’ll meet great people who share in the same vision of striving to reach their goals for a healthier mind and body.
Q. What makes Strong Healthy Woman BOOT CAMP different from all of the other boot camps I see?
A. We are a non military-style boot camp that caters to women who don’t want to be screamed at and roll around in the mud. We are a FUN motivating program that is designed and implemented by a NYS Licensed Physical Therapist, Laura Miranda; not some ex-army sergent who will run you through drills designed for 18 year old boys!
Q. Why should I participate?
A. You will make a dramatic improvement in your physical well-being. In addition, you will meet great people who share your same passion for acquiring a more healthy body and mind. You will be finished with your training before the rest of the world has even gotten started!
Q. Can I expect to be sore after boot camp?
A. Most campers find themselves sore during their 1st week. The trainers will show you easy tactics to stretch and ease that pain. Soreness is in fact your body CHANGING. Your muscles will be asked to do things that are way out of your comfort zone; they wont know what hit them! The good news is that THIS is the exact thing they need in order to change and improve for the better!
Q. What type of women take Boot Camp?
A. Women who are all out for one thing….CHANGE! Women who are sick of the same old gym routine, or even worse — those who just can’t find the time to workout at all because their schedule is too crazy! Women who want to workout with a group of 25 other people who are there to motivate, encourage, and push you!
Q. Is there a refund policy?
A. 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 $75.00 cancellation fee. If we are notified after your session begins, we can only give you a credit towards another boot camp. This credit is nontransferable. There is no cash refund. This is not negotiable.
Q. What is a typical day like at camp?
A. Each day of boot camp is different from one to the next. In fact, we have designed this program to be different not only every day but you wont even be doing the same thing from one minute to the next! THE GYM IS BORING! 3 SETS OF 10 IS BORNING. RUNNING ENDLESSLY ON A TREADMILL IS BORING. You can expect some light running, weight training, obstacle courses, core training and jumping rope all cleverly disguised in FUN games and drills. On special days, we will take a “field trip” to a different location, otherwise known as “travel days.”

Q. How soon will I see results?
A. Performance improvement can take place in as little as three days. “Visual Improvement” can take from two to four weeks depending on your effort level. It’s becoming common to see a camper go down 1-2 dresses sizes within the first camp. Remember, everyone is different!
Q. What will I do after camp is over?
A. You can get re-measured and tested to show your progress and success in the program. Many (up to 80%) of the campers return for a second and even third camp. On your week off between boot camps we have many options for you to keep up your intensity before you start the next session – Running Camp, Online Personal Training or Private Personal Training.
Q. What if I miss a day or two during the session?
A. Missed days may be made up during the session for which you are currently enrolled. Unused or missed days cannot be carried over to the next session; no credits or refunds will be issued. It is EASY to give up and it is EASY to give in to the temptation of sleep or whatever else may come your way. This policy is put in place in order for us to get the best possible performance from you during our 4 short weeks together. CONSISTENCY is the key. That key unlocks the answers to all of your past failures with working out and weight loss attempts.
