Our family has a friendly competition going called, "Who Worked Out The Hardest With Paul?" Typical boasts include: "I did more lunges than you," "I worked so hard I almost puked," and "I bench-pressed more weight than you." Essentially, we are all proud of what Paul pushes each of us to do and are very happy with the results. In fact, we are now approaching the four-year mark of our training with him for several times each week. What makes this friendly competition a bit more unusual, however, is that it crosses three generations. Our sons started training with Paul when they were 15 and 17. Now college students, they continue to train on campus, successfully utilizing the techniques that he taught them. Our eldest son was even invited to join the UCLA Powerlifting Team. My husband and I are equally enthusiastic about Paul's training approach and do everything possible to avoid missing a workout. We both feel stronger and healthier than we did a decade ago. My in-laws, who are both in their 70s, have also thrived under Paul's instruction. My mother-in-law quickly lost over 28 pounds and has maintained her weight, in addition to making excellent gains in muscle tone over the years. Not only can Paul skillfully train clients of different ages, but he also adapts to different needs and personalities, as well. He is excellent at working around assorted aches and pains, as well as speeding recovery from various medical procedures. He always keeps a fast pace and presents us with a challenging variety of exercises. All of us have accepted the fact that it is far easier to simply do whatever Paul asks than to try to argue that we cannot, even if it initially seems impossible! The amazing thing is that Paul instinctively knows each individual's potential and doesn't let anyone underestimate what he or she can do. He has a wealth of knowledge about every aspect of fitness, health and training and we have yet to stump him with any of our questions. Paul has instilled his passion for fitness in three generations of our family and we are forever grateful.See more

I started training with Melody in March. At the time I had been overweight for a while had been on yoyo ‘’diets’’ for years on and off and always ended up back heavier than I had originally started. I was sick of going to gyms where I didn’t really know if the exercise I was doing was correct or whether it was working and I’d get bored pretty quickly and end up just going for a swim. I had seen Melody’s instagram page and decided to text her and my first question was ‘’can you help me’’ and then went into explaining how unfit I was etc. I found Melody to be extremely passionate about her business and the health and well being of her clients. She is genuinely interested in her clients health outside of the time spent during a personal training session. She is always on hand to offer advice. The fact that she had been through her own weightloss journey helped me relax and listen to her advice. The training sessions Melody offers are tough but also fun and every week there’s a new challenge so you can never be bored! Melody’s training sessions will always push you to your limit and she is very encouraging. What Melody has provided me with is a complete lifestyle change, with a new approach to food and exercise not just a ‘’diet’’ and I enjoy every single one of her sessions. It has been the best decision I ever made in my life and I am a much healthier happier more confident person. I would recommend Melody to everyone.See more

I worked out with Marvin for three months before he moved from Texas. Before working out with Marvin, I thought I had a decent workout routine- worked out solo at a larger gym, went to one or two group classes a week, and occasionally threw in some cardio a few days a week. I didn't really see the need for a trainer because I thought my routine was good enough. Then, I met Marvin at my apartment gym, and I agreed to do a few sessions just to see if I was missing something in my routine. Marvin completely changed how I workout. He borrows components from every workout program (body-building, p90x, crossfit, track workouts, etc.) and weaves them together in a simple structure that can easily be modified as you learn a new move or want to vary the intensity. We started out with relatively simple moves and, even so, the simple moves combined with his workout structure really pushed me to a new level of fitness. As we continued to workout together, Marvin taught me countless new moves to apply for my workouts. Marvin also made sure I revisited versions of our older workouts so I could see the progress, which was incredibly motivating. Aside from Marvin's excellent workout routines, he is professional, responsive, and immensely positive. He's got a great philosophy for training that'll keep you interested and pushing forward even when you aren't working out with him. I highly recommend starting a routine with Marvin!See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.
