FAQ

Do I have to be fit to join Ultrafit Bootcamp?

We design each class so that everyone can participate at their own level. We don't leave anyone behind nor do we challenge you past you fitness level. As you get fitter we increase the intensity so that we can help bring you up to the next level.

Is the bootcamp only for unfit people?

Not at all we have marathon runners to people who haven't exercised for over 4 years. If you already come from a strong fitness background you can be guaranteed that we will give you a good challenge and you will see an increase in your fitness level.

What type of people join Ultrafit Bootcamp?

People just like you. We always say that our members are the greatest. The wonderful people who participate in the program are motivated to improve their lives through better health and fitness. Our members range in age from mid 20's to early 60's. We've had younger and older members as well. At class we create a non-competitive enviroment where members have an opportunity to connect with other like minded people. The members have fun and love the high calorie burning workouts provided by our experienced Ultrafit Trainers.

Where are your locations?

As you may have seen we use up to 5 different locations per program. Each location is within 5-8 minutes of each other. In Kitsilano all locations are within 5-8 minutes of West Broadway & McDonald. In North Vancouver all locations are within 5-8 minutes of central Lonsdale. In East Vancouver all locations are within 5 minutes of Riley Park on E 30th and Ontario. In Burnaby all locations are within 5-8 minutes of 751 Hammarskjold Drive. Our regular members who have been with us for over 3 years love the variety that each location offers and find this a real bonus to the program.

What happens when it's raining or snowing in Vancouver during the winter?

In the winter we have covered areas at each location so that you can find shelter for the strength component of the program. The cardio will still take place outdoors. If the roads are icy the workout will be modified so that it is safe but you will still get a great workout. In North Vancouver our evening classes use indoor locations for the strength component of the program.

What does a cardio boxing class look like?

Do you need a stress relief after work? You've just found the perfect class! These 60 minutes classes are fun packed with cardio and lots of boxing. You'll be boxing with a partner but don't worry you won't be hitting each other. One of you will wear target pads while the other one is the boxer who punches the pads. You will both get a chance to be the boxer. We also add core and conditioning exercises to the class so that it is a non stop calorie burning workout guaranteed to get you sweating. You are required to have your own boxing gloves and we highly recommend wraps for comfort and safety. You can easily purchase wraps and gloves from Ultrafit and we will bring them to your first class.

What does a typical class look like?

Each bootcamp class gives you a total body workout. We start with a warm up then go into 25-30 minutes of cardio exercises including running/speed walking trails, stairs, hills and other cardio drills. After the cardio we move into strength training for 20-25 minutes then we do abs and core strengthening for 8-10 minutes and finish off with 5-10minutes of stretching.

"I started bootcamp on a whim and now it is a complete lifestyle! I have always become bored very quickly with other exercise routines but BOOTCAMP forever changes, not only the exercises but locations and being outside has added another fabulous dimension regardless of the weather! I thoroughly enjoy my fellow `bootcampers`, their spirit - sometimes they are my motivation to work harder! We all help each other to succeed.

The instructors have been a real inspiration and continue to challenge at every level. The `info` sessions are a great reminder to keep on track and have offered excellent nutritional suggestions. I like that I have sound advice readily available.

My body shape has changed dramatically & am astounded at how strong I have become not only physically but mentally. BOOTCAMP is suitable for all levels as your success depends on the effort you are prepared to put in. We all start somewhere!

What can I say I love it!" - Ingrid Potter

"Thanks for getting me excited about getting fit & exercising!" - Andrea A.
