"I am a mother of 3, when I first started with David I was about 15-20 lbs away from my total weight loss goal. I only had a few months to get to where I wanted before my wedding. My first appointment with David we went over my goals, I was educated on nutrition and what I could expect from my particular body type. I left feeling very confident that with effort from both parts I would indeed meet my goal! I train 5 days a week for 30 min and am down almost 10 lbs body fat and gained a total of 3 or more lbs of muscle In 4 weeks. I feel great and my confidence level is through the roof! David has pushed me to train hard and accomplish physical fitness goals I didn't think I'd ever could. Anytime I had problems with nutrition he always helped with a solution. He's incredibly knowledgable about the human anatomy and answers all my questions. I love the one on one of training in a private setting where there is no distractions or need to feel self-conscious. Very Professional. I'd recommend Jurevich personal training for anyone who's ready to take a step toward a healthier life!! Thank you David. I look forward to wearing my wedding dress with confidence on my wedding day!

"Mario is really great. I was too unmotivated to go to the gym. I had Mario as my personal trainer and now I noticed a positive change in my appearance. I am happy and now more confident with myself. I definitely recommend Mario to anyone looking for great quality personal training."

"Eric was great, he listened to what I need to be done or worked on. I did the one hour deep tissue massage, I in pain everywhere but the most complaint I had at the moment was my left leg. He worked on my left leg, foot, calf and thigh. I am sore right now but I know it will get better, Rome is not built in a day. It is too bad he did not get a chance to work on the rest of what I need but I am fine with that. I am going for two hours and hopefully it will be enough to cover the rest of my issues. Eric is a professional, passionate in his craft, personable and knows what he is doing. His office/studio is clean and there is plenty of parking outside. I look forward to the next appointment and the road to healing. Just tell Eric what you need and he can better advise you of the course of action, cash (with ID) or check only. Weekend hours available and he is accommodating. Even though he was only able to work on one leg at that time it was worth the visit, I plan to be a regular; especially for maintenance."

"Patrick is the one. If you've found your way to Patrick as a personal trainer I would strongly suggest you look no further. I have been active and fit my whole life. Semi-professional sport when I was younger, always stayed in shape and stayed up with health and fitness knowledge. However, it wasn't until I linked up with Patrick that everything seemed to come together and make sense. He got me into the best shape (inside and out!) of my life at 40. Do yourself a favor and workout with Patrick!!"

"I started working with Martin about 6 weeks before my wedding to focus on losing weight and toning. I was very happy with the results. Martin quickly assessed my fitness level and creates routines to challenge me without demotivating me. Gradually increasing intensity and always integrating new exercises. All without a lot of props and expensive equipment. Exactly what I was looking for. Thanks Martin!"

"Amanda was very helpful and insightful. As someone who doesn't believe anything religious or spiritual she was still able to open eyes to the spirituality of life, the spirituality inherent to all life, and the role it plays in all of our lives whether we choose to acknowledge it or not. I absolutely recommend going and seeing her for any kind of spiritual guidance you need, she'll be able to help you. Also she's really nice"

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 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 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.

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.

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.
