I’ve been training with OJ since June, and he’s by far the best. I was always hesitant when considering getting a trainer but I definitely made the right choice when I chose him. He’s friendly, punctual, and incredibly motivating. He’s considerate of your schedule and will accommodate you as best he can. He’s located in Long Beach and even though it’s about a 30 minute drive from me I looked forward to my workouts with him. Everyone in his facility is so nice and makes you feel comfortable and relaxed. You’re basically family! If you’re looking for results and don’t mind putting in some hard work he’s your man.

When I first decided to start working out with a personal trainer, I looked online for personal trainers in Pasadena. I ultimately decided to go with Hugo based on all of the positive reviews I read of him on here. Since the reviews initially helped me make a decision on choosing Hugo as my personal trainer, I just had to leave my own review. Before committing to train with Hugo, he offered me an introductory deal so that I could experience working out with him. The first couple sessions he evaluated my strength, endurance, and overall physical ability. Once my fitness level and goals were established, Hugo set up a training program and nutritional plan for me. He begins every session by explaining and demonstrating the exercises in the circuit. He also clarifies and demonstrates the importance of proper form, which makes it really easy for me since I'm a visual learner. At any point during the exercise if I forget to use proper form, Hugo reminds me and encourages me throughout. He is very good at helping me understand which muscles each exercise is working out. I like how during every session, he is focused, patient, and motivates me to make sure I'm giving it my all. His professionalism and friendliness make it all that much more of a positive experience training with him. I've been training with Hugo for about three months now, and I can say that I'm truly happy with my results so far. My strength and endurance have greatly increased since our first session. I've noticed my body fat decrease and my muscle mass increase. I also feel much better when I'm exercising and eating healthy, it has greatly helped with my anxiety. I definitely plan on continuing to train with Hugo. I'm excited to see how my fitness level and physique continue to progress. I'm glad that I chose Hugo as my personal trainer, it is obvious that he loves what he does and cares about his clients. I definitely recommend Hugo for anyone looking for a personal trainer, you will not regret it!

I trained with Manuk a couple times a week for the last three months and couldn't have had a better experience. I feel like my old self, I learned new ways to stay in shape, and had a personalized meal plan that was tailored at various points throughout my training. Manuk will kick your butt into shape and really cares about his work. He makes himself available outside of his sessions and is just a great guy. His prices are great compared to packages at larger gyms. Setting goals and having accountability is something that I need in order to make big changes. Manuk made it happen.

I sought out the services of a personal trainer a little over a month ago and came across DeVine Physiques through some brief searching online. I finally decided it was time to invest into my health, and I wanted to make sure whoever I decided to employ was someone I could trust to guide me into much better health. Believe me, I'm quite a bit of work for a trainer, so he/she has to really convince me they know what they're doing. The reviews seemed promising -- promising enough to make me reach out. I was offered a free consultation right off the bat, which I gladly accepted. The day of the consultation, I walked into a private office/gym space to meet with quite a professional, jovial guy named Gabriel. I found the consultation to be very effective in informing me what DeVine Physiques is all about and what to expect should I choose to engage further. Needing some time to think about it, I thanked Gabriel and went home that night to mull it over. It did not take me very long to realize Gabriel is a very capable personal trainer who is more than happy to be flexible with his clients' needs and schedule, and you get the bonus of a nutritionist should you choose to take advantage of his knowledge in this field as well (recommended). I came in with the goal of wanting to lose a lot of weight and work towards a body I will finally be proud of, and Gabriel assured me he has the knowledge and abilities to help me get there if I am willing to embark on the long journey. With that said, I of course decided to go with DeVine Physiques and have been getting trained by Gabriel for just over a month as of this writing. Though it has not been a lot of time at this point, I am already very pleased with this decision. Gabriel has been a pleasure to work with, and the results I have already gotten are very promising. I've lost just under 10 pounds in the past month simply by following the diet and - of course - coming to the training sessions Gabriel has specifically set up for me. Though I have quite a bit of work ahead of me to lose this weight, I am feeling much more confident about that ever-intensifying light at the end of the tunnel because of DeVine Physiques. Now, I look forward to continuing on this journey to better health through the guidance of DeVine Physiques. To weight loss!

Aaron is a brilliant personal trainer. I started my training with Aaron to help prevent another injury to my hip (due to extensive running). I’m a classically trainer pianist and cellist and music is my career and life, therefor I have to be very cautious with my hands. I’ve worked with other trainers in the past and the main issue is most of them do not understand the concern with my hands and tendons. Aaron was extremely patient and always respected exercises I wanted to avoid due to my hands. He also resolved the problem in my hip and helped to prevent another injury in the future.

So many times I have tried to lose the weight that I gained over the last 10 years. I wanted to feel that confidence again when I looked at my body in the mirror. I have tried many diets, gym memberships, DVDs and other trainers. I crossed paths with Meghan through my daughter and it was one of the best things that could have happen to me. I was at a low point with feeling that I was never go to lose the weight and would probably never get back the confidence. Meghan was my trainer for 4 months and in that time I found someone that not only knows what’s she is talking about but each and every time I trained with her she was not only my motivational support in my physical growth but emotional as well. She helped me look in the mirror and not see all the imperfection but all the wonderful accomplishments I was making with my strength and cardio training! Meghan loves what she does and it shows in the way she lives and in the way she lets you know she is invest in YOU, it not just a job to her. She will walk you through a grocery store and teach you what to look for, she will text or email you recipes, she will educate you on workouts and she will teach you about the importance of a healthier you rather than a thinner you, that will come with just learning to be healthy. My knowledge on exercise and food has come so far and I have been working on my own using the tools she taught me to continue toward my overall goal. This time I know I will reach them and the game changer was her.

I worked with Margo over the course of about 5 months and had a great experience. I had already been exercising consistently for a while but Margo helped me bring my fitness to a whole new level. He created a personalized workout plan that incorporated the things I wanted to focus on: functional fitness and MMA. Throughout our time together we also modified and tweaked my workout to focus on my weaknesses. He was always available for questions and delivered on his promises. If I didn't have to move away I would still be training with Margo, and I highly recommend him to any of my friends who want to push themselves past their comfort zone.

I am a fairly ordinary, office-work type of guy, who is aware and tries to be healthy in his diet and have enjoyed going to the gym throughout the week for most of my adult life. I decided to find a trainer because I've spent the last decade improving my health and physical fitness, but it's always been somewhat of an experiment; trying new workout routines, positions, machines etc., with some working out alright and others just not suited to me, and rather than spend another decade with hits and misses, I decided to seek out a professional and get some real direction. I started training with Ryan three weeks ago and from our initial meet-up for discussing goals and session format, I felt excited and motivated from his attitude and clearly in-depth knowledge base. The training sessions are challenging, varied, and set at a great pace. When our sessions are over, I leave feeling tired but definitely accomplished, which is something I've been missing from my usual solo, after-work gym sessions. Ryan has helped me identify some problems I have been having: form during certain exercises and motivational/mental hurdles I had placed on myself, both of which had been preventing me from taking full advantage of my training. Ryan's positive outlook, clear explanation on the "how's" and "why's" of training, and supporting attitude (I have never been someone who responds well to the Mean/Psycho kind of motivation/coach,so this was extremely helpful for me) have made this experience invaluable. And on a last note, I am beginning to note the changes in my body that I've been after for so long (both in raw strength and appearance), and knowing that I'm getting there safety and with a solid foundation to continue to build on, has made this one of the best decisions I've made for myself.

Jeremy is one of the hardest working and dedicated professionals I have ever met. At the same time, he keeps things light and fun and you just can’t help but have a great time when you’re working with him. He will push you to do things you’ve never done before and, because it’s him, you’ll gladly do it and reap incredible benefits from his training. I couldn’t recommend him more highly.

Steve is a nice guy. He help me to become good at soccer. Simply, he knows everything about what the body needs and the food that is healthy for me. When I have pain, for example, in my arms, legs, hand, wrist, and back, he know how to heal that pain. I'm really glad that I chose him as my personal trainer. I really enjoy training with him because I get motivation from him whether by making jok about me by saying that he trains a woman that is stronger than me or by telling me no time for rest and to get serious. I have been trained with Steve for almost 6 months and I wanted to continued with him but I had to get back to my home country for some reasons. If I had stayed, I would have kept training with him. I could say that I got improved at soccer because my friends and the people I play with noticed that. I noticed that myself and Steve was the one who helped me getting that improvement. Thanks Steve for everything I'll keep training until I become stronger and maybe even stronger and reach my goal :(

Last November, I spent several weeks reading many online reviews, looking to hire a personal trainer. The process was overwhelming. I got a tip to use Thumbtack.com to help me on my quest, best thing I could’ve done.  The process couldn’t have been simpler and efficient; I received nearly a dozen quotes from some of the most qualified PTs around.  I finally settled with a mid-range quote from Matador Performance Center – their facility is not too far from where I work so it worked out great. The MPC staff is friendly, provided timely feedback, was responsive to all my questions and took the time to explain how their system of being placed with a trainer worked.  I felt very comfortable with the whole process and more so when I toured the facility, saw PTs in action with clients and met some of them. I love that there is no hard selling taking place.  I received 2 complimentary sessions which included a full assessment and full training session . As for the training sessions, the workouts were challenging but always within my ability to perform them.  My flexibility has improved, I feel stronger with each passing day – I never thought I’d actually enjoy working out. My Trainer is knowledgeable, professional, courteous, supportive and I truly feel he has my best interest at heart.  I recommend anyone looking for a trainer to contact Matador Performance Center, they will find the right personal trainer for you..

Working with Carolyn has been a dream come true. She pushes me to levels I didn't think I could achieve, but with her amazing knowledge of the body and muscles and her ongoing compassion, she was able to easily guide me to success. I have increased my strength and lost inches and look forward to more. I would highly recommend Carolyn for your personal training needs!

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.
