Ted is extremely knowledgable about bodybuilding, the human body, and everything to do with bodybuilding competitions. I met him in the audience of a bodybuilding competition. I could tell that he really knew his stuff. He's been studying bodybuilding for 35 years now, that is rare to find in a trainer!! I could not believe how in shape and muscular he was when he told me his age. I thought to myself, "wow, he must be doing something right". He agreed to train me and I learned much more than I'd ever known about weightlifting and the workings of the muscles in the body. I will always be grateful for this knowledge, and I saw incredible results! I feel that I am stronger today than I've ever been and I owe this to Ted's guidance. His services are very reasonably priced, and he truly cares about you becoming your best self, he is also compassionate and trustworthy. He will help you grow and progress but he will not risk injury while doing it. He's very cautious and does not believe in pushing the body until it breaks, but rather, will show you the most efficient and smartest ways to reach your goals. He's a gem!

David is a great trainer. I have had other trainers in the past, however David had far exceeded those and my current expectation. He provides not only the knowledge and experience to fit your goals whether it be powerlifting, fat loss, bodybuilding, or other pyhsical goals you may have. He also gives you vital information and explains to you the process in which to reach your goals, giving you a better understanding of how to get where you want to be. Our training sessions are always motivating, challenging, effective, and fun. He is a genuine good person and awesome trainer. From nutrition to exercise he can provide you and all around service to meet what you are looking for in a personal trainer. I went from 24.5 percent body fat to 18 in a matter of 3 weeks. Due to his knowledge in nutrition and effective and efficient workouts. I'm still in progress with reaching my goal, however he has made my approach the most efficient and satisfying I have ever had.

I’ve been working with Idrise for over a year and a half now and have never meet anyone with a more rounded ability in not only training but in nutrition. His knowledge is second to none and he has tremendous passion in what he does. When you work with Idrise it doesn’t matter what fitness level your at and what your goals are he caters to everyone. He takes a personal interest in you as a person which I believe makes him special as a lot of trainers I’ve had previous didn’t. Idrise has obviously competed at such a high level in the bodybuilding world and that experience you just can’t get. Me being a professional golfer he changed my diet and gave me a workout routine, with in 3 months I lost 15 pounds and at 46 am in the best shape of my life. I recommend Idrise to anyone who’s wants to get in the best shape of their life. Mark Hensby Pga tour winner

This place has done wonders for me. Phil is an excellent trainer who has a ton of experience in bodybuilding and overall body transformations. When Phil first started training me in 2012 I was 180lbs at about 15% bf I am currently 225lbs at about 12% body fat. I attribute almost all of my success to Phil's training and nutritional advice. I recently moved to Northern California and I call Phil on a daily basis for training advice. I have yet to meet a trainer like him.

Andrew has been extremely helpful in my weight loss, and body sculpting. I am a 51 year old female, who 11/2 years ago underwent 2 level neck surgery. When I was cleared from my doctor I have been working out with Andrew. I now am down 2 sizes working on one more size, and box, jog, run, jump rope, and all the things that I didn't even do prior to the surgery. His care of his clients is bar none!!!!

I highly recommend Luis as your personal trainer. I am a female who has worked out with him for over a year now. He promised me I wouldn't 'bulk' up, but rather slim down and get more toned. He was correct! I am down several sizes and still going. The personal one-on-one training is great and his positive attitude keeps me coming back for more!

After having somewhat been going to the gym for a couple of years (on and off routine) I considered myself quite the expert without even having been aware of how I lacked proper exercise education. I struggled with my weight for quite some time, it was up and down and inconsistent. Most of what I did consisted of lifting with machines and the ever so popular female workout of choice, cardio. Granted I finally did lose weight but I wasn’t “tight” nor “toned” just plain skinny! I stumbled upon Reid’s Instagram account and began to gawk over the results he helped multiple clients obtain with his assistance. First thing I did was purchase his e-book on his website and was too self-conscious to even try it, some of these exercises were too intimidating for my self-proclaimed expertise as they involved free weights. Finally after having been encouraged to step out of my comfort zone I began to follow his program and WOW!! I began to develop muscles I’ve never even seen before on my body… in my whole life! I had ab definition and triceps but Yes abs!! As soon as I moved to the Inland Empire I began to do both the online and in person training with Reid and I’m totally obsessed with the results he has helped me obtain. I learned better form and even had to go down in weight to get proper range of motion and make sure my lifts were most effective (my ego had me thinking I was stronger than I actually was). With the online program he’s very interactive and available via text, phone call or email. I’ve done online training before for a costly price and I now know this so called “trainer” gave me a real cookie cutter workout plan to follow for the whole month. Reid is different, he sends you out a new workout every two weeks to keep your body guessing and tweaks your meal plan as necessary. At the moment I’m currently involved in his show prep and plan to do my first bodybuilding show in January!! Reid is very knowledgeable and you can tell he’s received the proper education to be a personal trainer and contest prep coach. You can ask him questions and he doesn’t make you feel ignorant. In addition to his wisdom, he practices what he preaches as he himself has been bodybuilding for many years and has competed in many shows. He knows what he’s doing. He has educated me on how to properly keep the weight off and develop my body to its full potential. I’m not going to lie it takes hard work and dedication to get the results you want but I wouldn’t have anybody else but Reid train me, I trust his expertise.

I’ve trained with Rachel for years. Her passion for progress is infectious and has inspired me continuously, and she’s met my occasional moments of stubbornness with patience and an unflinching focus on helping me achieve my goals. She’s not just a trainer, she’s a mentor and partner who will challenge you to go further and do better than you might have thought possible.

    I have been strength training/bodybuilding for a few years now. Dieting is something that I have always failed at. I find it extremely hard to stick to any kind of layout that won't hold my attention. Working with Nate was the first and only time in my life I really felt in control of my intake. I lost around 10lbs and made major progress in my midsection (saw abs for the first time in my life). If you are someone who loves food and hates restrictions Nate can help you out with his iifym style. It was a great experience and I am absolutely looking forward to working with him again in the near future.

    Excellent information and listening skills as to my personal gains and goals. Not just pushing a program or set of routine exercises to follow. Builds the human spirit and the mind and body. Helped with core problems with upper arms, legs and lower back. A true bodybuilder of the human spirit. Highly recommend. LDW

    Mark is an outstanding trainer that will build you to whatever it is you want to achieve. More importantly , he is one of the very last trainers who have been around in the golden era of bodybuilding, so for all those out there looking to train to become like Arnold, look no further because Mark has it all.

      The best decision I ever made was hiring Heather! She is so great to work with and so motivating. Her workouts are challenging and she has a special way of always getting the best effort possible from me. My results were so amazing that she began training my husband as well. We have both never looked nor felt better, and it's all because of Heather. We highly recommend her to anyone, male or female. She's the BEST!!

      Nick is an amazing trainer. He knows how to motivate you to achieve your goals and never lets you quit on yourself. His knowledge of human anatomy helps him inform you on what your exercises are making you achieve. Before training with Nick I only trained light, meaning cardio and lifting light, I never thought I would be able to hip trust 300 pounds or have the best physique of my life. He taught me: how to use energy pathways, for efficient workouts; how to safely lift heavier weights; how overloading your muscles will help muscles adapt and grow; how I need to lift a heavy set then go to a light weight to increase my strength. I was always scared that if I did workout heavy I would turn into a muscle head female, Nick taught me that I don't have to be scared of that occurring and I am able to lift heavy weights! I went from weight 120 pounds without tone to weighing 150 pounds with a 22% body fat!! I have never felt this good about my body! Nick really helped me focus on my goal of toning up my thighs and butt. Those two areas have never looked better on me. Also who wouldn't love a trainer that lets you eat what you want, just in moderation and if you put the work in!! His workouts are fun and easy to follow. He really just wants every client to achieve their goals!

      Michael's been training me about a 1.5 years, primarily doing weight training, switching bodybuilding movements and conditioning. I started with basically no knowledge at what to do at the gym and through in-session discussions and demonstrations have a much better idea of how and why proper form is important and some anatomy along the way. Body changes along the way... I look sexier in the mirror :)

      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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
