I was recently referred by a friend to try a bootcamp of Impact Fitness and I was not disappointed! The trainers were very knowledgable and energized which made the workouts fun and challenging. We started out with some warm-up exercises, and spent the next hour working out our arms, legs, abs, everything! It was definitely a total body workout, and I felt great when I left! The trainers absolutely rocked! They were extremely tuned in to everyone's individual needs, modifying or increasing the difficulty as needed. I'd definitely recommend this team of trainers to anyone interested in making a stride in their personal fitness. Im looking forward to the next bootcamp!

This is the perfect place to come to get fit. My usual MO is sign up for fitness classes or trainers, get pushed really hard and give up in a week or two. Youniquely has a different style from other trainers, bootcamps and fitness classes I have taken. The training is truly uniquely fitted to your needs and accelerated or decelerated based on how you are doing and whether you want to or not. This is the difference between buying a dress that is mass-produced vs getting a custom fitted gown!!

I started with Aviv a month ago, and am very excited to continue my training with Aviv, which I didn't think twice about renewing. Over the last month I've lost 10 pounds, I feel and am stronger, and have learned proper form and technique. Aviv also helped me understand the importance of nutrition and has guided me through a healthy diet. Aviv is always working off the clock sending me awesome articles, tips, and motivation. I would recommend aviv to any friend or family member!

Ben is the best!!! I’ve always hated exercise and PE class was literally a total nightmare. I’ve never really been super out of shape or anything but I was gaining weight and thought it was time to find help. I actually requested female trainers only because I felt like I would be more comfortable with another girl and I didn’t want to gain that much muscle, but we talked on the phone and he offered me a free consultation soo I figured why not? I’m super happy I tried it out because I’ve learned so much in the last few days about training and for the first time in my LIFE I’ve been looking forward to going to the gym. He’s always encouraging but not annoyingly positive all the time and really cares about seeing me progress. I honestly thought working with a trainer was gonna be like bootcamp but he’s always understanding and doesn’t make me do things I’m uncomfortable with. (I basically always end up doing them anyways because if I don’t try hard enough he’ll silently judge me lol) I almost went with a trainer at another gym that wanted to charge me literally double what Ben charges until I saw how ridiculously crowded the place was. For half as much I get to train in a private gym and I’m seeing muscle definition for the first time!! Definitely recommend over other overpriced trainers, he’s super chill but very professional.

I was part of a baby bootcamp that Christina ran (basically a bunch of young moms who wanted to get in shape and/or loose a few pounds). Christina was great! She is super nice, knows how to work with various levels of fitness, and my body was always sore after her class(in a good way). I would recommend her as a trainer to anyone.

Sebastian redefines what an awesome trainer is. He is insanely knowledgeable, keeps up to date on research so you know he's looking out for your long-term health, designs workouts from best practices in CrossFit, dance, body building, and infuses each workout with his quirky humor and attentive TLC. He also does every move he coaches. I never thought I'd be a workout bunny but I've been going weekly for the last 3 years to 1-hour small group classes. This from a woman who hadn't picked up a barbell before. And that's exactly it - everything is outside in the fresh air, beautiful San Francisco scenery, with great people... I feel alive after each session, and super sore the next day. And I like how my body and mind have changed as a result. Truly above and beyond the bootcamp trendies you'll see out there. Highly recommend Sebastian!

No matter if you haven't worked out in your life or looking to change it up, Kelly Scott has what you are looking for. Nothing like an early morning bootcamp workout to start your day! I have been going to EmpowerFit for about 7 years. I have 4 kids, work full-time, and go school so my 5:30am workout in the park gets my day going! Kelly is a great bootcamp coach. She motivates, pushes you and makes you want more. She is great about following up with us if she hasn't seen us in awhile. Oh don't think you get off the hook if it is your birthday. She remembers everyone's birthday and you get to do some FABULOUS birthday burpees ;). I do have to say, the way she promotes health and fitness it ends becoming a habit and a way of life! I couldn't imagine not having my morning workout... and I don't plan on giving it up anytime soon! Thanks Kelly for everything!

Lori is truly a phenomenal trainer, and she will be there for you every step of the way no matter what your goals are. From muscle building and weight loss to general fitness and everyday wellbeing, she knows how to work with you to get the results you want.

    Description of the job: Domingo is a personal and a group trainer at a gym I go to. He teaches Bootcamp with different variations of workout that focuses on the whole body. What went well: I have been taking his class for several months now, and I feel the difference in my body. He is by far one of the best fitness trainers I work with, considering his variations of workout will guarantee that you will feel sore the next day. What impressed me most about his service is that he goes above and beyond the workout; he does not simply do regular push ups and curl ups, but he adds workouts with a twist, in which I am always excited for these challenges.

    Charlie's classes are the best thing that's ever happened in my fitness life. After years of under-utilized gym club memberships, random bootcamps, inconsistent running routines, a pregnancy and a growing frustration at my repeated failed attempts to establish a sustainable fitness lifestyle... I finally got my Eureka moment! The answer was to be found in my neighborhood tiny gym. Three times a week, I find in Charlie's small classes (typically between 3 and 7 participants) more personal attention than in any conventional gym classes and more camaraderie than in a personal training session. Charlie is no-nonsense, knowledgeable and friendly. He knows how to keep us motivated and engaged. His workouts are always different and appropriately challenging. Over the past 7 months, I have been noticing a steady increase in my strength and stamina. I have also been observing my body slowly change in all the right places, and my confidence grow. Worth every penny!

    Cameron is a very fun, well qualified trainer who brings a lot of energy and diversity to your workout! I've done both a bootcamp that he instructed at Lynch Fitness, and a one-on-one training session. With both of these he was helpful in instruction, teaching, and motivation. Can't wait to continue training with him! Outstanding job!

      Ron Capurso is an amazing trainer. The depth of his knowledge and experience is evident in the quality programs he puts together and the professional coaching style he leads with. His programs get you results. I have been training with Ron for over 2.5 years now. A longtime fitness enthusiast, I was impressed with Ron from the beginning. I originally started with Ron in his Adult Bootcamp class, looking for a way to tone up, and improve my running. Within 2 weeks I was feeling and seeing results. Eventually I progressed to personal training, wanting to take my fitness to the next level. His tailor made programs have gotten me incredible results, led to many running PRs, and overall strength and athletic gains. Ron's programs get results and I look forward to them each week, as they are never the same. I can't recommend him enough!

      Adventure Boot Camp is the most incredible way to lose weight that you will ever experience - it is completely addicting and a positive overall experience. In only one year after having 2 babies I have dropped 90 pounds and I am even skinner now than I was before I got pregnant with my first son. I feel stronger than I ever have in my entire life and bootcamp gives me an overall happy attitude every day of my life. You will not be disappointed in the results!!

        I started out with a 6-wk Groupon deal and wasn't sure that I'd even like bootcamp (bc it's challenging to find any workout that I look forward to doing or going to) ~ before I even bought the Groupon I called MyFitness. I let Danny know what my fitness goals were to see what he advised for me and he was responsive and knowledgeable. It's been 5 months since then and I'll have to admit that I have a new addiction to bootcamp and MyFitness has a major part in that (in a healthy way) ~ the level of energy that I've gained from it on a daily basis, better sleep at night, the loss of fat & leaning out with muscle, the ever-changing variety in each class (I get bored with too much uniform repetition in general, plus I don't have to spend my energy on making up the exercises myself...just leave it up to Danny and he comes through to give his clients great outcomes) and the changes that I can feel and see in myself!! MyFitness integrates a mixture of cardio, strength training and TRX suspension exercises, which has CONSISTENTLY given me the ultimate results of being 2/3's closer to my goal which I haven't been able to get with any other workout without my development plateauing by this time (and I have done my research and tried a bunch)! Danny also pays attention to each of his clients to push them and encourage them at each of their levels. He is sarcastically funny and keeps the group fun while getting a refreshing workout that doesn't gets old. I also re-injured an old injury from a car accident during this time and my chiropractor says that the strengthening that I gained from bootcamp is mainly what benefit me in healing quicker than average time....on top of that, my friends and family can see a major difference not only in my appearance but in my energy too. The most important part is that I feel better and stronger after each bootcamp! Because of that, you'll just want to keep coming back to continue getting that amazing feeling! #HealthyLifestyle #LifestyleByDesign

            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 kickboxing?

            Kickboxing is a type of martial art whose basic moves are widely practiced in personal and group fitness regimens. In combat kickboxing, two competitors fight using four points of contact — both hands and both feet — unlike traditional boxing, where competitors are allowed to use their hands. In competitive kickboxing, opponents must remain standing, and no fighting can occur on the mat or ground. Kickboxing has its roots in Muay Thai and other ancient martial arts. Some elemental moves from kickboxing include roundhouse kicks, back kicks, hooks, uppercuts and more.

            Modern group fitness kickboxing is practiced in gyms and workout studios across the country. It draws its moves from combat kickboxing, but instead of fighting with an opponent, participants perform jabs, crosses, punches and kicks in instructor-led, choreographed routines set to music. Personal trainers also incorporate kickboxing moves into workout routines, spending time punching and kicking the bag. These strength-building moves, mixed with high-intensity intervals, boost heart rate and increase strength.

            Is kickboxing good exercise?

            Kickboxing is great exercise. It works your whole body and really gets your heart pounding. Kickboxing combines upper- and lower-body movements like roundhouse kicks and uppercut punches that boost calorie burning. The type of kickboxing you do will determine how much exercise you get. Kickboxing training that takes place in a martial arts studio will involve kicking and punching a sandbag or sparring with a competitor, both of which will sharply increase the amount of exercise you’ll experience in a kickboxing session. Comparatively, a study by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that women doing group fitness cardio kickboxing burned between 6.45 and 8.3 calories per minute, or approximately 350-450 calories burned during an hour-long class. This is roughly what you can expect to burn with jogging or similar exercise, but ACE says that cardio kickboxing offers the added benefits of increased strength and flexibility, sharper reflexes, and improved coordination. Whether you’re training to fight competitively, learning kickboxing as a form of self-defense, or taking cardio kickboxing at your local gym, you’ll get a full-body workout with positive health benefits.

            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.

            Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
