"OJ is 1 of the best personal trainers I've ever come into contact with. For starters, your initial meeting is a workout created to personalize your strengths and weaknesses for future sessions. Afterwards, he speaks with you regarding your target goals, time frame, ideal weight etc. Meanwhile, he's compiling a special profile just for you in his computer. He sends weekly updates on your progress like: body fat percentage and weight loss/gain. In addition, he also sends motivational text messages during the week. He really is the most professional personal trainer I've ever encountered. I'm just 3 weeks into my training sessions and I'm already seeing results. Thanks OJ!"

"Hugo is a great trainer. We meet 4 days per week. He is always on time and is a good example of discipline with exercise and diet habits. Form is first for Hugo. He explains the exercise and make sure that you get the form correct before the routine and then during the work out. I have worked with other trainers before. This is the best training experience so far. The time is paced well between warm up, instructions and the routine. Then we close the session with stretching. It's excellent. "

"I absolutely love having Grace as my trainer. I met her when I started taking pilates from her about 3 years back and then when she became a trainer, I started that as soon as I could! I trust that she knows what she is talking about, she always brings so much energy to our session, even if I'm the last session of her day; If an exercises is ever hurting or not feeling the best, she is so quick to give me a modification or alternative - immediately there is no more pain, and I have never felt bad about not being able to complete a certain exercise. Overall she is great, motivating, encouraging, and knowledgeable and I will continue to train with her for a very long time."

"I have been training with Dimitri for a month, and I believe he is one of the most experienced and committed trainers I've ever met. He has continously helped me to achieve my goals and makes each session challenging but somehow still fun. My fitness has increased noticeably and i've seen improvements in my ability to do things I never thought i'd be able to and he pushes me to push myself harder I even look forward to our sesssions each day! - crazy!! I know! But most importantly :- 1. He monitors my form and technique to ensure that there are no injuries. 2. He is extremely reliable and punctual, always set up and ready for training ahead of call time. I would recommend Dimitri 100%  and with no doubts to anyone seeking to improve their fitness level and overall confidence."

"Ricky has been our personal trainer for about two years now. Me and my wife have an excellent experience training with him. He helped us get fit through diverse workouts and learned to start lifting. He is always helping us with our forms when lifting and achieving our goals. He kicks our butts every session, that’s why we have a love and hate relationship with him. But seriously we are grateful for everything that he has done for us and making us feel like friends not just clients."

"I have trained with Paul Harvey for 5+ years. I have been working with various trainers for 15 years total, and had never found one who understood my goals and knew how to achieve them. When I started with Paul I was 178 lbs. At 6'4" tall, that was very skinny. My goal was to put on lean muscle. I've added about 30lbs of lean muscle and have a six pack. Paul advises me on how to achieve my goals both inside the gym and at home. He is a smart guy and can carry on a conversation about more than just working-out. He makes me laugh and we have lively debates about current events. Even when I take the skills I've learned from him to my own solo workouts, I still never sweat as much as I do when I work out with Paul. He is a great motivator."

"I love working with Kevin, he pushes me just enough and listens when I'm uncomfortable, he offers solutions to get past limitations and provided me with a nutrition plan I love. I've had other trainers who didnt know what to do with nutrition or physical limitatuons of a couch potatoe. It's important to me that he is highly reliable, if he cannot meet me I can work with another great trainer. All the staff is friendly and the equipment is in good condition. I recommend Kevin."

"Donna Milazzo has been my body trainer in the last 5 years on a twice a week basis. My goal has been to maintain flexibility and to develop and save my strength. I turned 80 years old last June and cannot imagine a better body trainer at my age. I have noticed that she also trains other older men and women. Donna seems to have developed a special sensitivity to the requirements of older clients. I so appreciate, for example, that she brings me a cup of water each time I have finished a series of exercises. I suffer from chronic migraines and at those times, going to the Gymm is the last thing I feel like doing. But working with Donna is so rewarding that I force myself to go and to work along with her. She even volunteers special neck and head massages when I am in the midst of a severe migraine. And Donna is unusually smart and politically aware, which makes me enjoy our working together even more! It gives me real pleasure to recommend her as an unusually gifted body trainer. Dr. Desy Safan-Gerard, Artist and psychoanalyst working from her office and studio in Venice, CA."

"Jacob trained me for 6 months and this being my first experience hiring a personal trainer, I was nervous about the experience. Jacob made me feel comfortable from the start and what I appreciated was the fact that he took the time to educate me about what the excersise or activity will accomplish. In addition, he performs a lot of different activities at every session so you will never be bored of doing routine training. I highly recommend him especially for first timers. I lost a total of 30 pounds and 10% body fat training with him for the 6 months but most importantly felt good about my fitness once again."

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.
