FAQ | Soldiers of Fitness Ottawa


What kind of training do you do?
Everything! We have programs to focus on boot camp training and general fitness, programs for strength and mobility, and many more! Check out our programs menu for details.

What if I'm not physically fit?
That is okay! The point of our program is to get you in shape. We have people of all fitness levels working out together. The beauty of this program is that it is designed to benefit everyone, from someone who has never worked out before to tri-athletes. No one gets left behind! All that is required is that you give it your very best effort each and every single day. For full beginners we also offer our Foundations Boot Camp.

Can you modify exercises for individuals?
All of our exercises can be modified or adjusted to allow for different fitness levels (progressions and regressions). If you have a prior injury to a muscle or joint, we ask that you please inform one of the instructors and they may recommend our Strength and Mobility class until you are healed up.

Will I be sore?
Muscle pain is normal for anyone starting out on a new fitness regiment, but this pain will quickly subside as you continue through the course. It is all part of the improvement process.

How many people attend each course?
We always keep the class sizes manageable by splitting bigger groups into smaller groups. We strive for a 1:10 Instructor to candidate ratio.

Who attends our programs?
People just like you. Some who need a little push to jump-start their fitness and wellness program; others who are already working out; still others who want high-energy workouts. Regardless of their individual goals they will all want to train in a team environment.

What do I need to bring?
You will require a water bottle (ideally on a belt), running shoes, and appropriate fitness attire.

Are there shower facilities or a place I can get changed for work?
No, we do not have shower facilities.

What do you do in the winter?
We have an indoor location on Tuesday and Thursday at the Ottawa Academy of Martial Arts on the upper floor which replaces the Hog's Back 5:30am - 7:00am Tuesday and Thursday Boot Camp and Foundations Boot Camp programs.

Is there a refund policy?
We are so confident that you will love our programs that we offer a 3-day, Money Back Trial. This means that candidates have three business days from the start of the course to be eligible for a refund. Refunds will be issued minus the cost of t-shirt ($20) and administration fee ($50). Requests for refunds must be filed by 6:00pm Wednesday evening. 3 - Day Money Back Guarantee does not apply to returning candidates.

What if I get injured?
Minor injuries happen and we want you to take the time you need to rest and recover. We have a Strength and Mobility program that you can transfer to if required, or we have medical credit that can be applied at a later date.
