Jonathan got me into incredible shape. I was out of shape and chubby prior to seeing Jonathan. Now I'm lean, stronger, and at a healthy weight. Also, he is a great martial arts and Krav Maga coach. I've been training Krav classes elsewhere but not getting the results I wanted. Now my punches, kicks, maneuvers, and techniques are on point.

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've been training with one of Joe's trainers, Eddie, in Orange County and I must say it's been an amazing experience. Eddie is understanding, patient but surely also knows how to challenge me. It's never the same workout and it makes it fun each time. Eddie is always checking on me and making sure I am doing ok after a workout and always brings up new ideas not just to workout but also mobility exercises, stretching, etc. I never used to work out in the morning before going to work but now it's become a habit and I feel great for the rest of the day. Don't hesitate to get fit with these guys! Joe and his team are awesome!!

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!

Amazing experience! Very professional. Starts off with a sit down consultation listening to your goals and concerns and customizes workouts and has exquisite one on one training sessions. Also gives homework (workout routines) the days you aren't training. Shares info on nutrition and is always checking in on you to see how things are going. His knowledge is very high, and he truly cares for his clients. I feel so much better and healthier, also very excited to workout, because it's customized for my goals and its because of Gil.

I've tried training with several trainers, and Lucia is by far the best on all of them! She would make sure that you're doing per exercise in the right form at your own phase. She won't make you feel like you're being tortured. Instead, she makes sure that you're having fun while slowly, but, surely attaining results! She's also very flexible with scheduling, she will accommodate you as much as she can to be able to support you at the same time in meeting your goals! She's super nice and kind too! Every time I train with her, it doesn't feel like I'm just training with someone, but, having fun while training with a friend. I highly recommend her for everyone to try! We do high intensity training and I love it! I always get sore the day itself after our workout and I definitely see results! You're the best, Lucia!

I have tried so many weight loss programs since the birth of my children. The most I would lose would be 7, maybe 10 lbs. A friend from work referred to Lavelle. My friend, of course didn't tell me how hard he was. LOL! At first I was skeptical. However, I decided “What do I have to lose?” So I called my sister and asked her if she would join with me. She, also, had her reservations but chose to start the program with me. People used to be able to tell us apart – However, after training with LaVelle, we look more and more alike. We enjoy coming in for our weekly weigh-ins just to see how much weight we have lost. It is sort of a competition between us and both of us are winning! Thanks Lavelle! Kathryn & Katelyn

Kelly helped me get into shape right before I became pregnant. She helped me focus on a work-out plan that fit well with my goals and what I wanted to achieve. She also customized a monthly meal plan exclusively for me and my interests. I couldn't be more happy with her dedication to push me when I needed the drill sergeant trainer, but also balance it out and be supportive when I was not feeling well or sick and needed to take things slow. Another plus factor with Kelly is that she LOVES dogs. We incorporated workouts that helped me focus on myself, without feeling guilty or losing out on time I could spend with my dog outdoors. Kelly is super professional, educated and experienced in personal training. I would recommend her to any of my closest family and friends.

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 :(

Honestly, I didn't think Pilates would be the workout for me. I was so wrong. Jessica had been training my wife for quite a while, so I thought I'd join them for a session. I had been missing out! It's awesome! I feel the burn every time. Her training helps me to feel leaner, elongated and stronger with very little impact. It's also great to be able to work out with my wife at home. It's our ritual. Jess knows her stuff!

Last year when I turned 70 years old my body started becoming sluggish and my heart started beating faster than usual, my doctor advised: more exercise, drink more water. That’s when I met Victor Nicosia who agreed to train me to come back to shape. I trained with Victor twice a week with emphasis on core strengthening and in general stamina improvement. I am grateful forever to Victor for the amazing work he did. He started slowly training me At first with very easy weights and pulls and stretches without ever putting me in an uncomfortable situation. A year later my body was responding to heavier exercises and my heart never beat out of rhythm. Victor is a true professional trainer who knows the physiology of the human body – old or young. He observes very carefully the individual’s strengths and weaknesses and improves their stamina and strength while very carefully looks out for their safety. All of these he accomplishes with a very pleasant smile and wise comments. I am very sorry he left New York. I'll miss him. Penny Lambrakis Mineola NY

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.

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.
