"I am chronically ill, overweight, and in my 50s--the last person you'd expect to go to a personal trainer. I found Maggie while looking for a personal trainer who helped people with osteoporosis and other medical problems. Maggie is wonderful. Working with her has made a huge difference in my quality of life. The new studio is pleasant, and it is lovely to be working with a trainer in a small gym setting without the noise and meat market feeling many big gyms have. I'd recommend Maggie to everyone, but I think she makes a special effort with those of us who don't feel comfortable in a traditional gym setting."

"I had talked to two trainers at my gym and with a couple online before meeting with Sean. I had my first session with Sean and was thoroughly impressed. In just that hour it’s obvious that he cares about his clients and wants them to succeed. He took a personalized approach and encouraged me to push myself while asking questions to get to know me. Looking forward to the future and progress now that I am not alone with my workout goals."

"I’d never worked out in a facility before nor had a personal trainer so I’m not an experienced user. I have had a positive experience with Kendra as she directs me in rebuilding the muscle tone I’d lost."

"Sandra has been my fitness trainer for just over a year. I am 72 and some what out of shape, though I do ride my horse three days a week. Wanted t be in better physical condition (like Sandra!) so I signed up with her. She is the best!!!! I go once a week and meet Sandra for my personalized work out. She writes down what I do then I do them on my own. She can tell if you do not do your home work! I have one worn out knee and she knows that so some days we work around it. That woman must have 6000 exercises in her head. We try them out and so far only one I have not been able to do. She is very god at working with you and quickly sized me up as to what I can and cannot do, She shows and explains each exercise and then you do it. If what you do is not up to her standards, then another correction is made - all for the better. She is just wonderful as an instructor and would recommend her to anyone. I have become more solid, turned fat into muscle, and come down one pant size. I am not too interested in loosing weight but toning up what I have with the result of a new shaped me! Thank you Sandra."

"I have been overweight for over10-yrs and have tried everything; every diet known to man, personal trainers, many gyms, etc. And then a year ago someone told me about Erik. All I can say is OMG! In 1-year I have lost 60 lbs and proud of the way my body looks; thanks to Erik. His demeanor is very calm and confident, and yet he exudes such knowledge and expertise. You believe in him. His professionalism and faith in me gave me the confidence that I could do this. His knowledge of nutrition gave me the will power to give up my horrible eating habits, because my life was more important than my bad habits. The most important thing to Erik is his Client's well being and their faith in themselves to be fit and healthy. This journey was hard, but I will be on it for the rest of my life thanks to this incredible human being."

"Gage writes my programs, e-mails them to me and trains me at my gym 1X week. He consults me continually on my goals and what I am looking to achieve. "If" I listen to him, I achieve those goals. Gage is very knowledgeable on fitness, diet, and overall health. He understands the body and how it moves and is good at explaining his reasoning behind the movements he chooses for my personalized program. He is extremely motivating and realistic with his words and makes working out fun! I look forward to every training session with Gage! He is also magical with his massage therapy skills which goes hand in hand with lifting weights and working out!"

"I was Josh's first client when he started personal training and he was my godsend. He helped me go from someone who thought she knew what she was doing as far as diet and exercise to go to someone who really did know what to do. He has so much knowledge to share and is genuinely there to help you become the best person you can be. He helped me loose over 150 pounds and go from just walking the treadmill for 30 minutes at a time to working out everyday and running on the treadmill, lifting weights, bench presses and all kinds of stuff. He got me into the best shape of my life. He not only works with you on the exercise he will help you answer any questions you may have diet-wise. I would go to any one else for personal training as long as he is available."

"Hands down, if you are looking to feel better, get in better shape and actually learn something about yourself, there is no better option. I promise you will learn something about yourself you did not know before. I have worked with many great personal trainers and still do, but before you go any further contact this team first. If you already have a trainer, they will work with your trainer to help you get better results. Cant't argue with the price either!!!"

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.
