Rich was such an amazing investment in my life. I was 60lbs overweight and needed motivation and expert guidance to get this fat off! I am an ex college football player and figured I knew how to workout but just needed that push. So, I met each through a friend and let's just say what I thought I knew, I didn't. He showed me so many different exercises and the proper and safe way to reach my goals. His routines were ever changing and he kept it fun. His personality is great, he truly becomes your friend and coach. I lost the 60lbs in 8 months and I feel amazing. He truly is a life changer. His mind for training is one of a kind. The way he combines and create routines is something else and I have learned so much from him. I highly recommend him if you're looking for a trainer who will guide you step by step and give you the proper nutritional advice to reach your goals. He is a great person and trainer and you'll have so much fun along the way!

I have always been an athlete growing up, and I still consider myself pretty fit. However was getting bored just running and didn't want to spend the money going to a crowded gym so decided to give personal training a try. Lana is the perfect choice! I've been with Lana for a little over a week and she is outstanding! Very professional, and nice yet extremely motivating. She knows a lot about cardio and strength training, and even runs with me during our workouts. I highly recommend Lana.

Dustin has been great to work with! His willingness to come to you for training, coupled with his immense knowledge of both workouts and nutrition (not to mention his enthusiasm for what he does), has made our sessions extremely productive. I'm very pleased with how things have gone so far, and will continue to work with him moving forward!

I hired Allison to work with me on flexibility and pain management. I have very tight hips and several injuries from running and she designed a program for me that was both safe and effective. Her teaching style is down-to-earth and accessible and she has been very encouraging as I make progress. I highly recommend Allison for her positivity and emphasis on form and alignment.

I hired Tom initially to get in shape for my approaching wedding in Hawaii, which I then continued for 3 months after as the results were excellent. Tom pays attention to your goals, habits, metabolic type, and physical abilities. His diet suggestions and diversity in workout routines kept things interesting and fun (as fun as working out can be at first!) Tom's knowledge of CrossFit training, weights, and various other disciplines set him apart from your typical 24hr fitness trainer. He was willing to be flexible with my work schedule and was always available for a quick call or text. Tom provides encouragement, support, and puts together a solid plan to achieve your goals. I would highly recommend Tom for anyone hesitant or intimidated by the gym and or initial commitment of getting in shape.

I've been doing personal training since 2010 through many different trainers, my all time favorite was with Brittany. I went through a phase where I wasn't conditioned to training, had gained weight and wasn't use to lifting weights. The first time we trained together, I thought it was really weird but she made it of importance about my breathing and posture and didn't just get right back into lifting like I use to. A couple sessions later, I really actually felt a difference because she made it important to recondition myself and make sure that I breathe properly while I train! She not only made me feel physically fit, she was a great person to talk to, and made me feel great while I worked out and constantly pushed me to be a better person. I wouldn't ever want another trainer, and when I'm done with my break from training, Brittany and I are going to be back out there hitting those new PR's!

I've known Jon for a number of years. I met Jon when he was a student athlete at San Diego State University playing football. He's always been determined to be a personal trainer and there wasn't a droubt in my mind that he would reach that goal. When I learned that he was actually training people I had to see what he was doing. So I started following him on Instagram to see him in action. I was impressed with what he was doing with his clients that I called him up and set up an appointment. He stopped by my office (which I appreciated) and we talked about what my fitness goals and objectives were for training and the next week I was at his training facility training. He didn't go easy on me and he didn't let me slack on any part of my workouts. I thought he would take it easy on me but he didn't and I appreciate that. There were times I told him I couldn't do an exercise and that the weight was too heavy but he encouraged me to do it. And I did it. His positive attitude and patience with me makes him an AMAZING trainer. Not only does he care about your fitness journey but he cares about you as a person. Side note he allows me to have fun (telling jokes and singing) when I workout, while still pushing me to get better and stronger. I would recommend that you give Jon a chance and see for yourself what an AMAZING trainer he is.

Candon is the first personal trainer that I have stuck with- Now for over 2 years! I am already very knowledgeable about exercise and weight training, but Candon takes my workouts to the next level and keeps me motivated. He is a true professional that makes the sessions fun and challenging. He genuinely cares about his clients and knows everything there is to know about building muscle and avoiding potential injuries. I am so grateful to have found him!

I've never worked out in a gym; I'm more of a group class person. Back in September, I transitioned from Pilates to weight training and have really enjoyed working with Zack. In this short time, I feel much stronger than I ever have and can see results, both of which motivate me to continue my workouts. I can honestly say not once have I tried talking myself out of going on days I'm tired or don't feel well like I've done with previous classes. Zack is a great coach who consistently pushes me and holds me accountable to my goals in a positive way.

I've been working out with Beany for about a year and a half. She is a highly knowledgeable personal trainer and very personable. In my time training with Beany, she learned what I liked and what worked for me. She has been a blessing in disguise because she has motivated me during really hard times such as starting my postdoctoral fellowship program and planning my wedding. I'm a difficult person to train with but Beany has not given up on me- pushing me hard enough to workout and continue making healthier life choices. She combined interval with weight training and introduced me to boxing. When I didn't feel like working out, we would hit the mitts and that has been some of my most memorable, fun, and de-stressing workouts. If you need someone to motivate you and keep you on track with your fitness goals, I highly recommend Beany as a trainer.

I’ve been training with Armin for several months and I’ve been very happy with the progress I am making. When I started with a few goals in mind, he put together a regiment tailored to exceed those goals and has also changed the routines to keep the workouts challenging while focusing on different muscle groups. I have enjoyed having Armin as a trainer because not only does he keep me motivated, but also helps keep me accountable for working out every week and even has helped motivate me to stick to my diet.

All I can say about 1 on 1 Trainer is WOW! They are excellent, professional and convenient. I did a ton of research on trainers and 1 on 1 Trainer has by far the best prices for individual personal training. It wasn't even close! Not only was the price great but the quality of the workout was amazing! If given the option, you should choose them!

When I started running at age 57, Jane worked with me on specific self defense moves. We practiced a variety of quick and effective responses. I felt MUCH more confident after working with her. She was terrific--just what I needed. Jane also highlighted prevention and situations to avoid that were not so obvious to me before we went over them. This was very helpful. I wholeheartedly endorse her work. Barbara Ames

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
