Frequently Asked Questions

Is this a military style boot camp with a drill sergeant screaming at me?

No you will not be humiliated or yelled at. You will be in a environment where it is safe to challenge your body and mind.

How Long Do The Camps Run?

Generally camps run for four weeks and we take one week off before starting a new camp. Each session is 45 minutes except for Tuesday and Thursday camps which are 60 minutes.

How Many Individual Camp Sessions can I attend?

  • If you sign up for the unlimited option you can attend as many individual sessions as you like within the 4 week period.
  • If you sign up for the 3 day a week option you can attend twelve individual sessions within the 4 week period.
  • If you sign up for the 2 day a week option you can attend eight individual sessions within the 4 week period.

What do I need to wear or bring to the Boot Camp?

Camp will be held rain, shine or snow so dress appropriately and in layers. Bring gloves, a hat, water and a towel or mat to lay on the ground .We recommend that you dress with loose fitting or athletic clothing and wear a good pair of athletic shoes. See below for information for severe weather (lightning, temperature below 20 degrees and significant snow accumulation).

What is considered inclement weather?

Yes, we will be outdoors at temperatures above 20°. Camp will be held indoors only if there are unsafe weather conditions i.e. , snow accumulation, ice or temperature in the teens. To the best of my ability, I will inform you 12 hours in advance via email if camp will be held indoors.

The indoor space is at Morrow Memorial Church, 600 Ridgewood Road in Maplewood. Map

Will the camp start on time? 

Camp will always start on time. I understand that people are commuting into the city and pressed for time. Furthermore, I expect everyone to be on time, and campers who are late will be subject to extra pushups, laps, etc.

Will I be sore sometimes?
Most people feel some soreness for the first 2-3 days. After that point, it is slight to moderate. It's part of the process that lets you improve! We will never push you beyond your means or force you to do anything you do not want to do.

What types of people go to camp?

Some are looking to lose weight and others are looking to improve in sports. Whatever their goals, they're just like you, motivated, smart and most of all, result oriented. All levels are welcome from beginners to advanced.

What is a typical day like at camp?

First and foremost you will always have fun! You will work in groups of two or three working on every major body part doing cardiovascular, strength and flexibility exercises. Some of the equipment and exercises will be light running, weight training, resistance bands, obstacle courses, ab/core training, jumping rope, calisthenics, stretches and yoga.

How where do camps meet?
We will meet in Memorial Park between Baker St. and Oakview St. in front of the train station on Dunell Road (map). Parking is available in the library parking lot or on Oakview st. with a permit. The indoor space is at Morrow Memorial Church, 600 Ridgewood Road in Maplewood.

How soon will I see results?
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 sizes within the first camp . Remember, everyone is different!

What will I do after camp is over?

Many (up to 80%) of the campers return for a second, third and even a forth camp.

Success Stories From Our Friends!

maplewood boot camp
Jamie Z.

“Maplewood Boot Camps is a great program that provides a fun, efficient and really effective work out! Carlos is a great motivator. Since starting the program, I have lost 10 pounds, dropped a size in my jeans and gained so much strength and energy. Also, I really enjoy exercising outdoors in the morning, especially because I work inside an office most days.”

Shirley M.

“Since I began boot camp I have lost about twenty pounds and gone down several dress/pant sizes. I love how this program has made me feel about myself. What really keeps me coming is the sense of pride I feel after I make a new personal milestone. I love the fact that every week, I'm a bit stronger. And as I keep telling everyone--it is wonderful working out outside. There is something magical about doing a sun salutation and looking up and seeing the sun actually rising. Today I am feeling pretty good that with a temperature of 101 and a sinus infection, I did 100 jumping jacks in a row, not bad for someone closer to 50 than not. Thanks for being there Carlos. Good for you!”

"Maplewood Boot Camp is a great way to start the day, especially if you have a desk job.  Being outdoors and having the motivation of the group and the inspirational camp leader, makes it easy to make it part of your routine--going to the gym or running on my own were not sustainable for me.  Also the focus on the core and the aerobics and isometric nature of he exercises has helped me to lose inches on my waist and feel more toned and in shape.”

“I, for one, can attest that Maplewood Boot Camp is a lot of fun, motivating and achieves results. Being out in the fresh air in the morning before going to my desk job is the best part of my day. After each work out I feel very invigorated and ready for the day and for the rest of the day I can think back that my I did something good for me and what is good for me is good for my husband and kids.

Thank you.”

I signed up for the Maplewood boot camp in February to help me loose the 8lbs I had gained while recovering from knee surgery.

I lost the weight, gained strength, energy and flexibility. 

Carlos is a very knowledgeable and encouraging personal trainer. Whenever necessary he modified and guided me through the routine. I am now a Maplewood boot camp groupie.

I have always been into fitness although my routines had lessened over the years as I got busier. Maplewood Boot Camp has helped me become dedicated to a regular routine that gives me an all around workout. I started in April and plan to continue through the winter. The results
have been amazing-I am stronger and more toned than I've ever been!

Getting started with a regular exercise program after 20 years was a little daunting at first. The most exercise that I did during that time period was to give my dogs long walks occasionally and to take tennis lessons sporadically. I’ve always “looked” fit, but never had the stamina that I thought I should have or the flexibility that I wanted. In a very short time, Carlos and the Maplewood Boot Camp have helped me to improve leaps and bounds. Maplewood Boot Camp is about working toward YOUR personal best. It is not competitive (well, maybe a little) or intimidating and the group support is fantastic! Carlos, you’re the best. I can’t wait to see what fun and challenging activities you have in store next.

I was dreading a fear-based exercise program that would make me feel weak and like a loser, but Carlos is the opposite of that - he somehow works your BUTT off (literally!) with a compassionate and caring drive. I was never able to run or jog - I thought my bad knees couldn't handle it - but Carlos' warmups and approach helped me be able to eliminate that fear and get on the track and RUN! I am happy to say that I have taken almost 1 minute off my 1/4 mile in the 6 weeks I've worked with Carlos.

Thank you!

As one of the oldest members of boot camp, I am proud to say that I am in far better shape than when I was in my teens!

With having a serious case of scoliosis as a teenager, I missed out on a considerable amount of physical activity. I have been in boot camp for six months now. Thanks to boot camp, I can do situps, jog around the park several times in one session and do push-ups . I have upper body strength that I never had in my life and I feel much stronger and more flexible. I have been pushed beyond limits that I thought I never would be able to do.

I highly recommend the camp!

"As my 50th birthday quickly approaches I felt it was time to bring my abs back from a case to a six pack and Carlos as helped me begin that process. After four weeks of Boot Camp my stamina has increased, I've toned up, lost weight and my overall energy level has gone way up. The early session fits in well with my lifestyle and having others to share in the pain makes working out that much easier. I'm looking forward to furthering my gains in the next session".

When I first came to South Orange I knew that I wanted to do some sports. My friends hostmom told us about told us about the Maplewood Bootcamp and that it’s supposed to be really good, so we registered.

That really was one of the best decision I made since I came here.

Carlo’s Bootcamp it one the one hand really exhausting and even if you don’t feel like you can do it there is no excuse! But the important thing is that you really feel that you did something. You can feel it when your body hurts but you can also feel it when you all of a sudden can tighten your belt!

And on the other hand it actually is really fun! When you once get into this competition feeling it won’t let you go!

And all these factors together plus Carlos as the trainer it was the absolutely right decision and I would do it again anytime!

I started Boot Camp hoping to tone up and feel stronger. I signed up for the 6am class. I thought I would have a hard time getting up. I look forward to taking class. I have funplaying/working out outside.My husband noticed that I firmed up in less than four weeks. Zero love handles and some stomach definition. Fun/workpout and 6AM are words that would never come from my mouth together prior to boot camp. I'm looking forward to the next session, my goal is to lose 8 lbs.

Thanks Carlos

This was my first experience with any kind of boot camp, and I was very apprehensive about the whole process. I have never been much for exercising, let alone working out in a boot camp setting. But i must say, the end result has been tremendously fullfilling. by that i mean i have more energy, and feel much better, and what started off as a whim will now become a part of my life. Needless to say I will definently be coming back for more. I started off feeling like a failure and ended up feeling like a pro. Thank you Carlos for your true dedication that you give each and every member of your team

I never thought "working out" could be so much fun! It's like going to gym class.
It's great how everyone in the Boot Camp supports each other and
helps each other to keep going. I took your advice about eating better
and making better choices with what I eat. I feel amazing!
Thank you so much for making this a wonderful experience."
