Stephen incredibly knowledgeable and has a wonderful personality, and will push you beyond your mental (which I need most) and physical limits to get most out of the training without screaming at me. He is fully focussed on you while training and whenevwer time permits he quickly jots down my progress and motivates me with all the Instagram recordings :) he is either working out with me to demonstrate or couting my reps or recording the video for my reference. there is decent progress within a month and i am hopeful that I will achieve my target soon with help and motivation from him. I strongly recommend him to anyone for best body and mind :)

I have had a wonderful experience training with Anthony at God's Gym! He tailors each work out to my abilities, challenges me to incrementally work harder to build strength, but does not push me beyond my abilities or risk injury. Work outs are challenging, get my heart pumping and leave me with the "good" muscle soreness for a few days. There is minimal downtime in the 30 minute sessions, thus there is no wasted time. This contrasts to my experience during training sessions at other gyms. I feel that these sessions are consistently higher yield compared to my other gym experiences. Anthony, himself, is awesome. He is kind, patient, has a great sense of humor. He is VERY encouraging. He provides nutritional guidance specific for your goals. My schedule can be quite variable, and he has consistently accommodated this so that I could make as many training sessions as possible. The entire team at God's gym is very welcoming and supportive. A great environment, and an amazing community that I am now happy to participate in! Also, I would recommend that those considering this gym should not be "turned off" by the name if they are not religious, people of faith, Christian, etc. This is a comfortable and welcoming place for ALL people to train. :)

I've never seen a studio or gym this nice and well kept. It has top notch amenities(shower, towels, air conditioning in SF!) and staff. I've been training here for some time (3 months) and have seen great results, especially my balance.. Evan works with a great staff and Scott (my trainer) has designed a very effective workout program to address my right side\leg which is weaker than the left from breaking my femur. Great experience, would definitely reccomend for personal training!!!

John is an amazing trainer. He is professional, always on time, and perpetually energetic. Even on days where I felt worn down, he managed to get me energized. He also understood what I wanted to achieve and was very focused on my goals. By far the best trainer that I have had the opportunity to train with! I had to take a break from training due to some life events, but I will definitely train with him again as soon as I can!

At age 53, I was diagnosed with thyroid cancer and osteoporosis of the spine and hips. Following a successful surgery to remove my thyroid, my endocrinologist recommended that I pursue weight and resistance training in conjunction with a year-long course of daily injections to treat my osteoporosis. Since that time, I have felt so incredibly fortunate to have met Jackie Sizemore. Training with Jackie, with her expert knowledge of physiology and hands-on guidance, and experiencing the results of the comprehensive Youniquelyfit method, the T-Score for my spine went from -3.0 (osteoporosis) to 1.0 (normal bone density). I owe this dramatic improvement to my health to my bi-weekly training sessions with Jackie Sizemore in conjunction with my endocrinologist’s care. Working with Jackie is always challenging and never dreary; her positive, encouraging, and creative training sessions really make you feel good (with muscles tingling after intensive matt work!) Now, at age 58, and with thanks to Youniquelyfit, my flexibility, agility, and muscle tone has improved noticeably and my once constant back pain (attributed to spinal bone loss) has disappeared. I highly recommend Jackie Sizemore’s Youniquelyfit training sessions for anyone contemplating getting into the best physical condition of their lives.

I have been training with Felipe since 2010. Before I started training with him, my workouts only consisted of high-intensity cardio kickboxing. After training with Felipe, I realized that while I was fit, I was not strong. Now I get a great mix of cardio and strength training. One of my goals was to be able to do a pull-up on my own. Now I'm strong enough to do 5 in a row! I love the workouts that Felipe creates. Every day is different and he is constantly adding new things to keep it interesting. His workouts can consist of hitting a tire with a sledge hammer, pushing a car in a parking lot, lifting weights, or TRX exercises. And that's just a sampling of it. It changes all the time. He is also a big believer in having correct form. Doing the workout correctly is more important to him than how many reps you can do. If you're looking for a personal trainer who is different than most, Felipe is the trainer for you!

I've worked with Justin from the Kula Team for personal training for the past six months. The dedication and passion he has for health and fitness is evident. From day one he works with you on a plan to achieve your goals. He incorporates fitness, diet and recovery into his plans to make sure you get results! He continually changes up the fitness routines to make sure your fitness levels keep improving. Each month we set a focus, a goal and reflect on the past month. Ive seen trainers in the past who very passively watch their clients. Justin is very involved making sure you have proper form and are being challenged. His feedback is effective and well-researched. When I had some issues with shoulder tightness I came in the next day and he was ready with some stretches and techniques to help target that! The Kula Team also has an amazing meal prep plan to get you started or to help you continue on the right path to health. Their bowls and snacks are tasty, varied and affordable! I highly recommend checking out Kula Wellness!

Mo is a fantastic trainer. He is very knowledgeable, a true expert in his field. He's a compassionate, attentive trainer. Be prepared to be pushed outside of your comfort zone during your training sessions. He makes training fun and you'll rarely do the same routine twice. The variety of exercises and support I feel keep me coming back for more...not to mention the results. You won't find a better trainer anywhere else.

Benjamin Lim is a treasure !! Very professional and knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness training. Super good bargain too. Ben's technique is based on science, not the usual mumbo jumbo. My fitness level is improving dramatically thanks in large part to Ben, though I do also have other personal trainers. If you can only get one trainer, get Ben. Don't waste your time investigating other trainers. You won't find someone better, especially at that price. In case you suspect this review is unreal or biased, it isn't. I never met Ben until he started training me a couple months ago in my home.

I’ve been training with Herman for almost 3 years now, and believe he is one of the most experienced & committed trainers around. I started training 4-5 times a week and really enjoyed the variety & challenge he put into the personal one-on-one session.

I was thrilled to find Jason’s small group fitness classes in San Francisco. I have never been in better shape after taking his interval training classes. Every day was different and you could tell that the workouts were carefully planned out and timed with intention. Jason’s motivation helped take my fitness to the next level and I felt like my legs especially became toned very quickly. I recommend Jason to anyone that needs a good sweat and wants to work hard. it doesn’t hurt that Jason has a great personality and sense of humor!! I always looked forward to starting the day with such positive energy. The only reason I’m not still working out with Jason is because I moved out of the Bay Area - but I am sure to visit and work out whenever I am in town! Thanks Jason!!

Kristi is awesome! She's knowledgable, creative, energetic, and listens to your needs and goals. Her passion for fitness and nutrition comes through in every session. She's willing and able to make modifications to my training program and my nutrition plan as needed. She helped me create a nutrition plan to match my workout routines and supports me through my Fitbit app and My Fitness Pal food tracking. Kristi is also always available to contact for advice and support through multiple channels - SNAP team, social media, phone, etc. I've been a SNAP Fitness San Mateo member since summer 2015 and I love coming to the gym. Kristi and her team have created a fun and casual environment to workout!

Elite level fitness training. Samantha and Nick are consummate professionals, but that doesn't detract from their being approachable & easy to talk to. They have a vast combined knowledge of both fitness and nutrition, and I was very impressed at how they catered to my fitness goals, and took the time to apply a singularly unique finish to my training regimen, definitely not a one size fits all, they are willing to take the time to get to know you. Very refreshing, I highly recommend them, regardless of your fitness level.

I've trained with Ryck for nearly two years. Ryck is highly professional with years and years of experience. Goals - he would work with you in order to achieve your goals. Whether it's building muscle, losing weight, getting stronger or rehabilitating, he knows what he's doing. Drive - he will not let you give up, and will adjust the workouts based to your needs. He'd push you when possible and make you take a step back when needed. Personal - Ryck is a just a great person, fun to talk with, and is genuinely interested in helping his clients, which even goes beyond personal training. Even though I was somewhat experienced when starting to train with Ryck, he's managed to get me to achievements I never even dreamed of. Anyone would be lucky to have him as a trainer. Had I not moved to a different state, I'd still be training with him without a doubt.

Nick is an outstanding health coach with knowledge and work ethic that delivers great results! I have worked with Nick for the past 5 months, and as a newcomer to fitness training, found it very easy to work with his holistic approach to fitness and health. Nick constructs programs and offers guidance in a way that is easy to consume, and delivers results. My goals were to improve overall fitness and conditioning, become stronger, and to have a lean, athletic physique. With Nick's help, I've seen tremendous results across all three. Nick encompasses nutrition and sleep into his coaching philosophy to provide a well rounded approach and program. Nick is thoroughly professional, punctual, responsive and great to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their fitness and overall well-being.

I was referred to Dante by a friend who highly recommended him after training with him for a few months. I was hesitant because I hadn’t trained in a very long time, gained a lot of weight and didn’t want to feel and look dumb. I had run into Dante a few times and he always had such a calming energy that I finally decided to put my fears aside and give it a shot. Best decision I made. Dante is positive, motivating, fun, and very knowledgeable on how to work with different body types. I lost more weight and inches in the first month than I have in years. I’ve trained for months now and we’ve never done the same exercise twice. He knows how to shock your body into shape! If you are looking for a trainer that knows how to get you in shape and makes you feel comfortable while doing it Dante is the guy for you.

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.
