"I don't know where to begin with a review for Jerome (Osmosis Fitness). There are so much positive things to say! I have had the most positive experience from the start when I've decided to change myself in fitness. I have never worked with a personal trainer before and to be honest, I wasn't sure if I wanted to move forward with it. I am glad I did and I feel it was the best decision I've made for my fitness by picking Jerome to work with me. From my first contact with Jerome I can tell I have made the right choice. He made me feel at ease with moving forward working with a personal trainer since I have never worked with one before and he was able to answer all of my questions. Jerome has years of experience, a firm schooling background and a good track record based on other reviews so I thought "Why not give this a try?" He personalized / designed my program based on my fitness goals. Jerome is also patient, communicates well and has a high level of professionalism. He always encourages me to be the better me and pushes me during my workout sessions. I am happy to be on my way to my fitness goals. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my decision and Jerome is a great personal trainer. Update: I'd like to update my review on Jerome (Osmosis Fitness) now that I have concluded my training after 5 months. I still stand by my previous review and I'd like to add a few things. - I have gained roughly 20 LBS of lean muscles and my body fat percentage has gone down a bit. By the end of my program I weighed at 145 LBS with 7.3% body fat. This is incredible to me as I would have never thought I'd gain as much as I did. This definitely surpassed my expectations of what I'd get out of training. I definitely would not have been able to do this on my own just from doing exercise videos at home. - Since working with Jerome (Osmosis Fitness), I've gained more and more confidence being at the gym. I have never had a gym membership before because I was extremely intimated by the people there as well as the machines / equipment. Jerome has provided me with the knowledge and tools to be comfortable being at the gym. - During my time training, we have also done the Spartan Race at Fort Carson. I was weary about doing this race since I have done the Spartan Race in Breckenridge and some of the obstacles there I struggled with. I was extremely stoked with my race results as I was much faster and stronger this time around. The obstacles I was worried about I breezed through them with ease. I definitely was a lot stronger. Also, I thought the Fort Carson course was much tougher than Breckenridge. I've included my before (Day 1) and after picture (Day 90)."

"Four months ago a friend referred me to Kaitie Hudson as a Personal Trainer. It is possibly the best professional referral I have ever received. I had never worked with a Personal Trainer and it had been decades since I had spent any real time in a gym. I found both issues daunting, but Kaitie quickly allayed my concerns. By the second or third session with Kaitie I came to realize that her efforts on behalf of her clients do not end at the end of the session. She researched my medical conditions in her free time in order to fully understand them, and to deal with them on my behalf. She continues to do this on a regular basis. Several weeks ago she texted me with a link to a site concerning "gait". It provided reinforcement to what we had been working on in our sessions. Kaitie is a skilled communicator and utilizes various methods to explain or demonstrate how each exercise is performed and what the expected benefit will be. When I don't get it verbally she demonstrates the move or shows it to me on the computer. Kaitie understands her clients and listens to them. Her knowledge of her profession is extensive. Not only does she know a multitude of different techniques; she is well versed in the musculoskeletal system and human anatomy. I appreciate that she not only shows me what to do but can also explain why we are doing it. She "mixes it up" from one session to the next to keep it from being repetitive. She clearly knows how far to nudge a client without pushing beyond physical limits. I initially worked with Kaitie based on a referral. I continue to work with her because I believe in what she is doing and I trust her. I thoroughly enjoy working with her. Kaitie Hudson is a professional who truly cares about her clients, blending her expertise with a great sense of humor and an encouraging smile. Thank you very much!!"

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
