Thor’s Elite Fitness “Four Weeks To Freedom”
Boot Camp For Women and Men
(Frequently Asked Questions & Answers)
Here are answers to the most frequently asked questions about Thor’s Elite Fitness “Four Weeks To Freedom” Boot Camp for Women and Men:
What exactly is the Thor’s Elite Fitness Boot Camp?
Our Boot Camp is a four-week program that provides instruction on fitness and nutrition, with generous heapings of motivation and fun! Boot Camp is led by instructor Thor Colberg. Thor is a former competitive collegiate athlete and certified fitness professional with years of experience helping LKN and surrounding area residents achieve amazing results. Boot Camp consists of calisthenics, light running and body weight exercises. Small dumbbells, medicine balls, bands, tires etc are also used. The goal is to get you moving, elevate your heart rate and build lean muscle so your body burns twice as much fat. NOTE: Ladies, do not worry – you will not get “bulky”. Muscle is more compact and smaller than fat. Also, it’s much more shapely. Replacing fat with muscle will make you smaller, tighter and firmer…your dress size will go down, not up!
What if I’m not in very good shape?
We use “progressive programming” at Thor’s Elite Fitness boot camp. That means each person is assessed to determine their personal level of fitness. If you’re not in very good shape, we’ll start you slow (there will be others in the same boat, so you won’t be left behind), but work you up to speed more quickly than you can probably imagine right now. The amazing thing about the human body is how it adapts quickly to proper stimulus. We will SAFELY challenge you – so never more than you can handle. With years of experience working with women and men of all ages and fitness levels, we have this progressive programming down to a science.
Just know that you are welcome at boot camp regardless of your level of fitness, and you will not feel out of place, even if you think of yourself now as being totally out of shape. You are not alone. Help is here, both from myself (your instructor) and the friendly, caring support you will receive from the other women and men. We work as a team, inspiring and being inspired, and everybody wins!
Where is the location we will meet?
Please see our Location & Time page for directions.
What types of exercises and activities are included in the program?
First let me say that everything we do at Boot Camp is FUN. You will never be doing long, boring cardiovascular exercise or painful, hard, heavy lifting. Those days are gone.
The exercises we do include an emphasis on developing the “core” muscles of your body. This is called “functional fitness.” Your stomach down to your knees is your “core.” And for most people, that’s where all the problems are. Now, keep in mind that when you work your core directly, every other part of your body gets indirect work. So (for women) if you have that jiggly skin on the backs of your arms, or you want your shoulders to look great for that strapless gown, or you need to slim down your ankles…all of those body parts will benefit tremendously from the exercises we do at Boot Camp.
There will also be some short distance running from time to time of less than a mile, body weight exercises to increase your strength, circuit training, hiking, some Pilates movements, running obstacle courses and much more.
The bottom line is that you can do it all, and with our “progressive programming” – you can start at a pace that’s comfortable for you, and increase your intensity under our supervision and instruction, safely and measurably, quicker than you can imagine. That’s how you get results!
How often will we meet for Boot Camp?
We recommend that you and the other women and men come to boot camp 2-3 times per week starting out to see best results.
Boot Camp will last for 45 minutes, including warm-up and cool-down. There are bathrooms/locker rooms at the location in case you need them. All that we ask is that you arrive on time and ready to go. Boot Camp starts promptly.
How Will You Know What My Fitness Level Is?
A few days before Boot Camp begins, we will meet with each participant to give you a Boot Camp orientation, assessment (where we take some measurements and ask you some questions about your lifestyle as it pertains to your fitness and medical history), and answer any questions you may have.
About the pre-camp measurements: “What we watch and measure…improves!” That’s our motto here, and it will become yours, as well. It’s vital that we ascertain a “baseline” of where you are today, so that we can document how far you come in the 4 weeks. Nothing is as motivating as seeing your body change before your eyes. But since it occurs over a 4-week period, you can quickly forget where you were and how far you’ve come. So we establish the baseline for you with measurements and pictures. All the measurements and pictures are held in strict confidence and will never be shared without your consent. Although, I will tell you that most people are very eager to show the world their accomplishment!
The whole point is to measure your improvement over the 4 weeks so you can feed off that achievement and keep going strong! It’s not uncommon for women and men to see dramatic body fat reductions over just four weeks.
When does the next Thor’s Elite Fitness “Four Weeks To Freedom” Boot Camp Start?
Please see our Location & Time page under Boot Camp.
What should I bring with me to Boot Camp?
Besides comfortable clothing you can exercise in (layering is advised as it can warm up quickly in the morning from Spring through early Fall, and stay cool at the other times of year), the most important thing for you to bring is a positive, can-do attitude and the willingness and desire to have fun with other ladies and guys just like you!
The social element of Boot Camp is a vital part of your success. The camaraderie and support is tremendous. Everyone works together as a team, inspiring and being inspired.
Other things to bring: Your own exercise mat, a small set of dumb bells (5 or 10 pounds is sufficient unless you are very advanced), a water bottle and running shoes. All of these items can be purchased very inexpensively at WAL*MART, or Target.
What sort of results can I expect to achieve at Boot Camp?
Besides the body transformation you’ll experience, the biggest achievement is the sense of satisfaction and accomplishment you get from taking care of your health. If you’ve never experienced it, you are in for a real treat, because nothing can make your life more full, rich, balanced and positive than exercise. If there is such a thing as a panacea, something that cures everything, it’s fitness.
The body transformation will be a wonderful achievement, and you can expect to see your body become toned, tighter and considerably more firm. Your energy levels will soar. Stress will be totally controlled, and in some cases, even disappear. Your stamina and strength will increase, your body fat decrease by as much as 3% – 8%, you can lose a minimum of 5lbs – 12lbs, your thighs and tush will firm up, your tummy flatten. Inches will literally “melt” away as you add lean muscle and lose unwanted fat. Your skin will glow, your eyes clear, and you’ll sleep like a baby.
I know, I know, that sounds like “hype.” All I can say is this: once you experience it, you WILL believe it. And in addition to all that, you’ll meet great people, make some new friends and have a heckuva lot of fun!
How much does Boot Camp cost?
Our Boot Camp (with guaranteed results) has packages starting as low as $87 (per 4 weeks) of instruction! That’s less than $8 per workout.
After 4 weeks, you’ll have the “fitness habit” and you’ll never want to give it up because it makes you look and feel so darn good! You will see there is no other fitness solution that even comes close to giving you this much value for the investment. The reason boot camps are exploding across America is because women and men get the best results in this type of environment, with this type of fun exercise, instruction, coaching and support, and they get the results FAST. Again, I don’t expect you to take my word for it, that’s why we offer you the opportunity to try before you buy with one free workout!
We get you results and we get them fast. Boot Camp is fast and fun, with not a moment wasted. You are burning calories for 45 minutes at a high rate, and then continuously thereafter as a result of the exercise you did and the lean muscle you build. And our location could not be more convenient.
What if I just want to try the camp before I commit to full registration?
You are certainly welcome to do that. We offer a “try-before-you-buy” option so you can take a FREE class. I hope you can see we make this very fair for anyone to try before they buy, and all we ask is that you show up and give it a go!
Will the exercises I do at Boot Camp make me sore?
It’s completely normal to feel some soreness for the first few days of camp. You are moving and using muscles in ways you probably have not for some time, maybe ever. We make sure to warm you up properly, cool you down right, and stretch, stretch, stretch. And that alleviates much of the soreness, but still, some soreness is normal. And frankly, the mild soreness lets you know you’re doing great work!
What types of women and men get the most benefit from Thor’s Elite Fitness Boot Camp?
The women and men who get the best results are not categorized so much by body type, age, fitness level or demographics. They are categorized by attitude. If you come to camp ready, willing and able to take instruction, inspire and be inspired, push yourself a little beyond your normal “comfort zone” and have fun in a supportive environment designed to really bring out the best in you, then you can expect phenomenal results. Like everything in life, you get out of it what you put into it. But one of the great benefits of camp is that you are led by knowledgeable, expert fitness trainers who understand what you need and how to give it to you, how to motivate you and how to hold you accountable so that results come fast!
Do you have a refund policy?
Yes, here are the details:
- If you are unable to attend camp due to circumstances out of your control, we will give you a full refund if you notify us at least one full week prior to your session start date.
- If you are unable to attend camp due to circumstances out of your control, and notify us less than one week prior to your session start date, we will provide you with a refund less $50.00 cancellation fee (because we may not be able to give your spot to someone else at this late date).
- If we are notified of your inability to attend (circumstances out of your control) after your sessions begin, we can give you a credit towards another boot camp the following month.
Do you guarantee results?
What can I expect on a typical day at Thor’s Elite Fitness Boot Camp?
How quickly can I expect to see results in the mirror?
It took time for you to get where you are today, and so it’s only natural that it will take a little time to see dramatic changes. But you will most definitely experience performance, strength and conditioning improvement, sometimes in as little as three to four days.
“See-it-in-the-mirror” results can take 14 days or more, depending on how much effort you put into it. Again, it’s all about attitude. If you show up ready to put in the effort while you’re at boot camp, and you follow our nutritional guidance (without traditional dieting – don’t worry about that nonsense, we don’t play those games) of eating smaller, more frequent meals and healthy snacks while you’re away from boot camp, you can expect to see real transformational results by the end of the four weeks. 1-2 dress size reduction, 3-8% body fat reduction and a minimum of 5-12 pounds of weight lost, is not uncommon and absolutely within your grasp. We’ll help you every step of the way, and motivate you to succeed!
What happens when my boot camp ends?
That’s entirely up to you. If you’d like, you can enroll in the next camp and keep the progress going. Most women and men will choose this option after seeing just how much fun this is, how motivational and supportive the environment is, and how comparatively inexpensive it is for the value you get. Nothing can compare to Thor’s Elite Fitness Boot Camp For Women and Men when it comes to getting you the life-changing, body-transforming results you want, in the shortest period of time. And should you choose to re-enroll for another class, we will welcome you with open arms!
Rest assured that if you do choose to sign up for another camp, because of the “progressive programming” we provide, you will always be challenged and always be moving forward, getting ever-increasing results, and a more tightened, firm and fit body.
