I have tried several different bootcamps and Bo Francy is the best trainer I have had. Over the last 2 years I have seen my body transform so quickly. He's very motivating and always pushes me to reach my goals. The one thing I love the most is his classes are never repetitive and always keeps it challenging! Highly recommend his bootcamp!

Lauren Allen is a phenomenal fitness coach and such an inspiration to all men and women. I have attended her Saturday bootcamps and not only did I leave with an energetic workout outdoors, but I left feeling wonderful about myself. I loved that she catered her boot camp to meet all levels of athleticism so that we all were able to receive an awesome butt kicking work out at our own pace. I would definitely recommend Lauren Allen!!

I have always worked out, primarily at group classes like Barry's Bootcamp. While I felt in shape, I saw little change in strength and overall fitness. After interviewing with several trainers, I went to Tom looking to see actual results, an improvement in strength and for nutrition advice. I have been working out with Tom since April, and am in the best shape of my life. His workouts are challenging, and personalized to my goals. I have developed more strength, confidence, and overall fitness in 8 months then I had in 3 years in group classes. I think the most valuable part of Tom's training has been the nutrition advice. His meal "plan" (and I hesitate to call it that) is easy to understand and follow, encourages REAL, nourishing food, and most importantly, balance. Unlike my experience with other trainers, I have never felt hungry or restricted, and have never had a better relationship with food. As a bonus, he can also be funny. I highly recommend Tom!

I really like having Elle as my trainer. I have been attending her outdoor bootcamp class for the last 5 years, 2 - 3 days per week. She always finds different ways to work out our entire bodies. You'd think after 5 years, it would get boring, but Elle always comes up with something fresh. She is always providing varying levels for those of us that need lower impact or have injuries to look out for. The positive effects that I have found are that I don’t get tired as easily, I haven’t been getting as many headaches, I feel like exercising more often, I’m way more flexible, and I’m about 20 pounds lighter. I recommend Elle for all levels. She's the best!

I can't say enough about how great Nez & Robert are. When I started training with Nez, I considered myself to be pretty fit & very active already. I had already tried different kinds of workouts: bootcamp/circuit training, running, HIIT, boxing, etc. But, not lifting. I was a little intimidated at first because I joined FSU without knowing anyone, but Nez & the rest of the group really made me feel comfortable. My lifting journey began with surprises, of course. I lifted heavier than I thought I could for some lifts (lower body) & was weaker when it came to other ones (upper body), & worked out muscles I never knew existed. Nez pushed me every day for months & took me further than I ever thought I could. A lot of my body's overall transformation came from lifting & Nez's guidance. After completing three programs, I transitioned over to Robert's Olympic weightlifting program. This program continues to challenge me every day because it requires so much patience & technique. Robert is the best coach for this. He's knowledgeable & he has been nothing but supportive and patient throughout this process. My upper body's transformation has been amazing thanks to Robert. Lastly, Nez & Robert are hilarious to workout with. Count on cracking a lot of jokes while you workout (abs)!

I have been coming to JJ's bootcamp since February of this year, I was nervous that the exercises would be too hard for me since I was so out of shape and hadn't exercised in so long. I was wrong! Yes, the workouts are intense but he makes it so any exercise level can join and you can modify it to fit your level! My strength and endurance have improved so much, I have also went down 2 pant sizes! JJ always comes up with new ways to challenge us and he's always so encouraging!!

      I've been into sports and exercising since my childhood but in 2011 I had to stop doing that for a while because of a motorcycle accident. In 2015 I felt that I needed to come back to that life and I decided to find a professional to help me. I met Brandon through a school friend and went to his free bootcamp and there I started my comeback. After a few sessions there I talked to him and told him my goals and we started our sessions. He gave me direction and orientation on what I needed to do to reach my goals. I could see right on the first session that the process would not be a joke but I was totally into it and when I was feeling weak He was there giving me motivation to keep pushing forward. It was hard to follow a diet, something that I had never done before. Couple weeks past and I was seeing results. I was skinny and fat at the same time. Skinny with no muscle mass but a lot of fat on my belly. Week by week that fat was going away and I was able to feel it and see it. Brandon gave me tips on my diet and also supplement that would help me see results even faster. Every new session brought new exercises, variations, things that didn't make that exercising routine boring. He was keeping track of my body fat percentage, weight and evolution on the exercises every session. I was taking 3 sessions a week and after 2 months I could see myself lean. Time to bulk and put on some mass. He guided me through the whole process and I was focused following his orientations. I had to cut the number of sessions due to a financial problem but that didn't change our commitment to the process. I realized I learned a lot with Brandon and I was able to do some sessions myself and still feel accomplished. He taught me and he shared his knowledge with me. After approximately 8 months training with him it is just amazing the results I've got. I can see and people around me can see it as well. I've been getting a lot of compliments on my body change and there is still so much to do. I went from 157lb skinny fat to 175lb quality muscle mass. My tip is: If you want to take things serious, get results and reach your goals, find a professional to guide you. I recommend Brandon because I'm a witness of his professionalism and competency.

      Working out with Len has been a great experience. When I stopped taking bootcamp classes, I was looking for a personal trainer who would still push me both physically and mentally like you might get in a group fitness setting. An added bonus is Len’s knowledge of muscles and joints. Having been in a terrible car accident that left me paralyzed for 6 weeks when I was in my 20s, I still have residual pain and severe arthritis all over. Len notices any misalignment and corrects right away. He is also very knowledgeable about being able to locate where the source of the pain is and work the muscles and joints to help relieve any pain and tension. If you are looking for a personal trainer who can push you to be stronger but also help you heal/recover using an osteopathic method, look no further and schedule a consultation with Len!

        Jo’s bootcamps are amazing! I love that you start your day at 7am OUTSIDE getting a work out in. Most bootcamps I go to I leave me feeling like I wish it was more challenging. With Jo’s approach she has me winded after each work out. I love that she throws in sprints and hills to keep our heart rate up between exercises. Plus you can’t beat donation base. I highly recommend anyone looking for some motivation or just wants a effective workout to start there day. Jo’s the best!

        Amanda is a fabulous trainer. She and I met about 18 months ago at at prior bootcamp style gym. When my schedule changed and I was unable to take classes, she and I began working 1-on-1 and have been working together for over a year. Amanda is amazing and very receptive to what I am looking to achieve with my body, what my goals are and what issues are coming up, physically, mentally and with my schedule between workouts. Amanda lives and breaths health and wellness and is always looking at new and exciting ways to keep me excited about my workouts. I would 100% recommend Amanda as a trainer to anyone looking for the extra boost a great coach brings to the training realm.

        Marcia is awesome! I trained with for my first 5k and was great! She pushes me out of my comfort zone, gives me nutrition tips, she knows my body limits and respects that. Now I'm doing her bootcamp classes at the park. It's hard work, high intensity exercises, a big challenge but I love it so much. We lose an average of 800 calories per class. During the class I want to "kill" her but at the end I feel so good and relaxed. Love her and the beautiful job she does :) I highly recommend her!

              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.
