"I have been working with Krisztian for about 2 months now with my main goals being to lose fat, increase strength, and increase cardiovascular endurance. I weighed in at 206 lbs at my initial assessment and was pretty out of shape, so much so that I was unable to finish the initial assessment workout. I started working with Krisztian 3 times a week following his prescribed workouts under his careful supervision and I am down to about 190 lbs after 2 months. In addition to the workouts - and more importantly, in my opinion - Krisztian helped keep me honest nutritionally by having me log my diet via the MyFitnessPal app. He would review what I ate and give me tips to help me on my way. He was also very realistic with his expectations, knowing that I couldn't eat clean 100% of the time. A little cheat meal here and there was allowed as long as they were within reason. I'm still about 20 lbs away from my goal but I feel I have made solid progress while working with Krisztian. In addition to being an excellent trainer, he is also very personable and easy to work with. Another important factor for me was the gym where we worked out at: York's Core and Fitness. I am not a big fan of the traditional 24 Hour Fitness / Gold's Gym type settings with a bunch of weights and machines. York's Core and Fitness is nothing like your typical big chain gym and promotes functional training which I'm all about. No matter where you are fitness-wise, I highly recommend working with Krisztian to get where you want to be."

"Since I moved to Thousand Oaks and started driving an hour to LA every day, I just let any exercise fall off of my calendar. Too much work to get to the gym before the drive, anxious to get home after the drive. I let myself get so out of shape, that I was afraid of injuring myself if/when I started up again. I got tired, I got chubby & irritable. Something had to change. I made a commitment, but the easiest, no-excuses commitment I could come up with: I hired a trainer to come to my home 2 mornings per week, + Saturday at his private gym. Personally Designed Fitness has turned things around for me. I am stronger, I look better, I feel better. I’m less irritable, I sleep better. When it rained all last week; I would not have been going to the gym, or done a workout app on my phone. But I knew my trainer was coming TO MY HOUSE (no excuses!) to work out, so I got out of bed, got dressed, did my workout - and as usual, felt tons better once we were done! Personally Designed Fitness is ultra-professional: on-time, focused & my trainer knows what he is doing. Every time we’ve met to workout, I’ve been on the edge of thinking the workout was a bit too much for me. But it hasn’t been. It’s been much, much more than I would have made myself do, left to my own devices, but I’ve not been hurt or injured. I just have that sore feeling that lets you know you’re not wasting your time & you’re getting stronger. I’m considering buying sessions for my husband and daughter for Christmas. We all deserve an “accountabili-buddy” to help us hit our goals!"

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.
