The following are a list of Frequently asked Questions. Please check back as we will be updating this list as questions come in.
Is BCWAP a marketing company or a charity fitness organization?
First and foremost we are a charity fitness organization. We give great workouts (that’s the fitness part, getting people in shape). People pay for these workouts and 100 percent of the money is given to charity. (The charity part) Now, how do we get people to come to the events? We market BCWAP. If we do not market BCWAP no one comes to events and no charity money is raised.
Marketing strategies for BCWAP:
- We find companies that will pay to have t-shirts made with our logo on it. Since they are helping us get shirts on the street so people will know about BCWAP and come to events so more charity money can be raised, we help them by getting the word out about their company by putting them on the t-shirts too.
- Another way we get the word out about BCWAP is to find companies that will let all their customers and clients know about our events. We help these companies out by putting them on our newsletters. The better these companies do the more they will be able to help BCWAP. The more they help BCWAP, the more people come to events and the more charity money is raised and the more good is done. If you do not understand and have any doubts or questions please send your concerns in by way of the contact form and our community relations team will get back to you promptly.
What do you do at Boot Camp With a Purpose workouts?
Answer: A lot of the workouts are Boot Camp style cardio and muscle toning and building. They incorporate many different exercises of all levels. All workouts are taken to the fitness level of the individual. Don’t take the words Boot Camp the wrong way. There are yoga BCWAP workouts, pilates, soccer camps, anything good and positive, you can call it a Boot Camp With a Purpose. We’ll help you promote it and try to get it out to do as much good as it can.
How much does it cost to do the workout?
Answer: Most of our locations charge 15 dollars a workout per person. 100% of this is given to the charity chosen by the instructor. Check the individual location though, some are free to kids, women, and some are sponsored.
Why do you do it?
Answer: Because it’s the right thing to do. Because it feels good. Because it brings attention to charities and causes the instructors are passionate about. Because it brings parents and kids together to do something healthy. Because, well, do you get it? Some of us do.
If I want to have a Boot Camp With a Purpose of my own what do I do?
Fill out the application form under “Have your own BCWAP”. If you have questions send them to email@example.com.
The requirements are that you give a safe, appropriate workout for all involved. Here’s the biggie, you must give ALL money collected to the charity you choose. Do as many events as you can. Give what you can when you can. There are no minimums. We want as many people as possible out there doing good things as often as they can.
Who pays for the marketing and upkeep of BCWAP?
We have sponsor companies that pay to make this happen. Elite Personal Training started it and has paid for 100% of all costs up to 11/25/09. We hope some companies will start joining in soon, but until that time comes, Elite is glad to bear the load. Elite was created to help people get in shape and feel better about themselves. With its success it was decided to take what was being made and put it into BCWAP.
If you have a question that is not answered above or anything in this website is not clear please let us know. We are constantly working to make things clear and reach as many people as possible.
Sometimes it’s hard for people to grasp what we do, but it’s very simple. We give workouts to get people in shape. We charge a reasonable rate. We give it all away. I don’t think that’s all that out of the ordinary or strange, but then again, my life hasn’t been all that ordinary.We hope you like what we’re doing. Support your local Boot Camp With a Purpose. If you see someone who needs help, help them. The feeling you get should be pay enough. Not everything in life is about money. This is one of those things.
