I am starting my first boot camp and starting to get nervous! Lol! I have a lot of interest and have told the girls they can pay me on our first session but wondering if this is best practice? Also – I see you can buy bootcamp pacakges that include exercise lists, marketing materials, etc. I can do this on my own but was wondering if it would be worth the time to purchase one. Any comments there would be appreciated too.
Hello Tricia Jones,
Congratulations and good luck; you will have a boatload of fun. I do not purchase packages; I design my own classes. I also use a template from my educator for their class format to design more classes; since, they are the creator and have rules to be followed.
My participants pay the full price on the first day of class.

Asking members to sign contracts may be an option worth considering.
But I suggest having participants pay the full price upfront, that way your time to cash is quicker.
All bootcampers for me sign a very extensive registration form and pay in full up front prior to our start date
This is done by cash or check : all checks must clear prior to starting.I offer new boot camper orientation one week prior to starting.
This shows commitment, and dedication.

Forms and fees are up front for all my classes. And I do all my own programming and design. It is what I like to do, that is why I am an instructor. I would be doing it all just for me if no one wanted to pay me for it. I take course after course, because I want to know more and do more. I work on understanding the biomechanics of movement and use what I find to develop isolation and compound exercises/movements for whatever my clients need.
