"Liz Brooks is truly an amazing personal trainer! She works with me as a whole person; physically, mentally, and emotionally. Because of her efforts, I have lost a total of 142lbs so far, I am stronger (both physically and mentally), I am more confidant, I am healthy, and I am just genuinely happier with my life! I can also finally say working out has become fun! I have worked with other personal trainers in the past and I can say that Liz is one of the best! I give my highest recommendation!"

"I joined Lifestyles Fitness as a total novice about four months ago, but it has taken almost no time at all for me to acquire a truly indispensable repertoire of knowledge and experience from trainers Mark and Drew, whose expertise cannot be overstated. Mark and Drew each have their own take on what makes a good work-out, but despite their (amicable) differences, I was able to learn abundantly from both of them. The variations in their approach to strength training allowed me greater versatility in my workouts. Both Mark and Drew were always happy to discuss different strategies and techniques for working different muscle groups, and their explanations were accessible and very informative. As personal trainers, I cannot recommend Mark and Drew enough; they took my goals seriously and were supportive (but never overbearing) when I hesitated."

"Jake is absolutely great coach for whatever goals you are setting for yourself. He will push you to your limits and the man knows what he’s doing. At this moment I’m 11 weeks into an 18 week prep with Jake and I couldn’t be happier with where I’m at. Ive got 7 weeks to go and I know we are gonna absolutely kill it. Me and a teammate are already planning another show with him for next year."

"Ryan has been my personal trainer for more than 1 year. At our first meeting, we discussed my fitness goals and he assessed my current level of fitness. Then, he put together a number of workouts comprised of free weights, weight machines, TRX and floor exercises to achieve my fitness goals. He places great emphasis on proper technique to achieve maximum benefit while remaining injury free. He changes the workouts regularly to ensure continuous improvement and also to prevent boredom from setting in. Ryan is a great motivator, he always pushes me for that one or two extra reps that he knows I am capable of doing. Occasionally, he will text me, encouraging me to "eat healthy" or to workout at home. He is very knowledgeable and he keeps me highly motivated to achieve my fitness goals. Ryan is a great trainer that I highly recommend to anyone looking for a personal trainer !"

"I've only been training with Chris for about a month but I can definitely say he knows his stuff! I went in knowing basically nothing about working out in the gym but since working with Chris I have improved my form and gained some much needed confidence. I now get excited to go to the gym knowing that my workouts have some structure and purpose. I have lost 14lbs and feel myself getting stronger everyday. Not only does he give you the best workout but he has the best energy and trust me that goes a long way when you're not in the mood! If you're ready to feel healthier, stronger, and maybe even sexier...CALL CHRIS TODAY!!!!"

"My personal training experience with Dennis was informative and tough. Dennis did not let me slack and made sure my form was correct with every exercise; he also provided education on how important form is and what to expect with correct form while working out. The time was well spent."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is kickboxing hard?

Kickboxing is as intense a workout as you want it to be. As with any fitness regimen, the more effort you put in, the more results you will get. The type of kickboxing you do will determine how physically challenging it is. Combat or self-defense kickboxing, where you train in a martial arts studio with sandbags or spar against combat partners, can be an intense physical workout. Group kickboxing classes that use sandbags as part of the workout will also elevate the degree of intensity, because of the level of exertion punching and kicking the bag requires. Cardio kickboxing group fitness, which employ kicking and punching moves but no sandbags, has comparable intensity to jogging but works a wider range of muscles while increasing strength, flexibility and coordination. Here are some of the core kickboxing moves:

  • Cross: A straight punch that you throw slightly across your body, using your dominant hand.
  • Jab: A quick, straight, face punch. Usually thrown with the non-dominant hand.
  • Uppercut: A punch thrown up from the midsection (using either hand) that connects with the underside of your opponent’s chin.
  • Hook: A curved punch (using either hand) that connects with your competitor’s jaw or chin.
  • Side kick: A kick delivered when your competitor is at an angle to you. Raise your leg to the side, then bend at the knee to deliver the kick.
  • Front kick: A kick delivered straight on while you are facing your opponent.
  • Roundhouse kick: A kick delivered by swinging a leg up in a clockwise or counterclockwise motion (depending on which leg you’re using) with momentum to strike the opponent with the instep of the foot.

What should you wear to kickboxing?

What you wear to kickboxing can vary based on the setting. For kickboxing group fitness classes that are part of a gym’s cardio class schedule, standard fitness attire is appropriate. Athletic sneakers, pants or shorts that you can comfortably kick in without getting tangled or flashing anyone, and a top that allows for easy movement when punching and jabbing are all good choices. You won’t need protective gear or gloves, as most cardio-based kickboxing classes do not use punching bags.

Kickboxing training that takes place at a martial arts studio typically requires protective gear. You may need boxing gloves (beginners may want 12-ounce or heavier gloves for more cushioning) and hand wraps that protect and support your hands under the gloves while you punch the bag. If your kickboxing training includes sparring with opponents, you’ll need a mouthguard and any protective head and body gear your studio requires. Always be sure to bring plenty of water, too.

What is a boot camp class?

Fitness boot camps are a heart-pounding way to boost your fitness level. Boot camps are led by a fitness instructor and are based on the concept of military boot camps — intensive workout programs to get new recruits into shape, quickly. Fitness boot camps encourage camaraderie, and the group momentum helps participants get through fast-paced intervals of cardio, isometric training, strength training and endurance drills. Classes may range anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and usually meet multiple days per week. Boot camps often run a specific duration of time, say four to six weeks, which creates a team-like environment for class members. Other boot camps run year-round and students purchase package pricing for classes, similar to subscriptions that allow them a set amount of classes per week or per month.

Boot camps can be held indoors at a gym, outdoors in a park or on a beach, in a backyard — anywhere there’s room for running, jumping and sweating. Some instructors also provide DVD and online boot camps. You can also find boot camps tailored to your heart’s desire, such as bikini boot camp, or boot camps for new mothers. Boot camps offer an intense workout and are usually led by energetic instructors pushing you to do your best, but unlike military boot camp drill sergeants, fitness boot camp instructors typically don’t use intimidation or punishment to spur you on. Check with your doctor before starting a boot camp if you have health concerns, and always let your instructor know ahead of time if you have injuries.

What do you need for kickboxing?

What you need to bring to kickboxing depends on where you are working out and what your goals are. For a gym or fitness club’s cardio-based group kickboxing class that does not use punching bags, you generally need only appropriate workout gear and enough water. For kickboxers who are training in a martial arts studio, working one-on-one with a trainer toward a specific goal or sparring with competitors, you will need your own boxing gloves (12- to 16-ounce gloves provide more protection for beginners) and hand wraps (to protect and support your hands under the gloves, as well as keep them dry). If your lessons are in a martial arts studio, you may not be permitted to wear shoes, so bring clean socks if you don’t like to go barefoot. If your training includes sparring, you may be required to wear a mouthguard and/or protective headgear. Whether you’re in a group fitness class or hardcore training session, bring a sweat towel for your comfort and the comfort of people around you.

How much is a boot camp?

The cost of fitness boot camps depends on how often you go, the package you are purchasing (or if you are paying a drop-in fee), the location of the bootcamp, the equipment the instructors provide, and the background and reputation of the instructor. Smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living typically have lower rates for boot camp services than big cities and regions with a higher cost of living. If you’re paying per class on a drop-in basis, expect to pay anywhere from $12 to $25 or more, depending on the region and the instructor. When you purchase a package of classes, typically the more you buy at one time, the cheaper each class is. The same boot camp class might be $20 for a drop-in student, $15 for a student who pays for 10 classes per month, and $10 for a student who pays for 30 classes a month. Studio space can also affect costs, so if your boot camp takes place in a high-end gym with top-of-the-line equipment, the prices will likely be higher than a class that meets in an outdoor space with limited or no equipment. Shop around to find the right type of boot camp class and the right instructor for you.
