If, for whatever reason you are unable to attend Camp, refunds will be offered so long as you give sufficient notice prior to your session start date. The cut-off time for transfers, refunds or credits is 2 days PRIOR to your Camp session start date. Failure to provide sufficient notice for cancellation will result in NO transfers, refunds or credits issued. This is due to the fact that you had reserved a spot in the session that I can no longer fill after the session has started.
If you had signed up for 4 weeks, but wish to continue for the full 8 weeks you can register for the second half
Since March and December are busy with vacations and holidays, I run mini-boot camp sessions at this time.
No, being outside in the snow is not the most ideal of settings for working out, which is why during the colder months (October through April) I run boot camps indoors at a local school.
Fitness Camp allows you to work at your own pace, plus modifications are given for many of the exercises. That being said, because of the large number of squats and lunges we do, if you have any SERIOUS knee injury or disability it would be best that you consult a physician for approval before signing up for Camp.
No, pregnant women are not able to participate in any Camp sessions unless otherwise given permission in the form of a PAR Med X form filled in by their physician. The risks to the fetus are greatly increased when engaging in exercises that significantly raise the heart rate.
If your pregnancy is not complicated (i.e. separated abdominal muscles), it is considered safe to engage in activity 6 weeks after giving birth. However, after a pregnancy I do recommend that you check with your physician to obtain official clearance before starting any kind of activity.
The minimum age requirement to participate in Camp is 16 years old (with parental/guardian signature) or 18 years old without guardian signature.
Yes. I am certified with The Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology as a Certified Personal Trainer and with The Ontario Fitness Council as a Fitness Instructor.
Yes! I am required to have Fitness Professional Liability Insurance.
Like any outdoor program, weather will sometimes become a factor. I run the Camp in the rain as long as there is no lightening or thunder.
Absolutely, it is a requirement by my liability insurer
I recommend that you dress in layers. Gloves and hats are also good to have when it gets chilly. Winter sessions, which mainly consist of the colder months, will be held inside at a local school.
Dress appropriately because between May and September, Camp sessions will be held outside. I recommend that you wear light, breathable clothing and be sure to bring extra bottles of water so that you stay hydrated. Consuming water before, during and after camp is strongly advised. During your session, listen to your body and take rests/breaks as needed. I also provide water with ice and face cloths to cool down.
Absolutely, Get Fit Boot Camp welcomes women of all ages and levels of fitness from the first-timer to the fitness fanatic!
