"I decided to train with Justin after years of frustrating time in and out of the gym, working here and there with a trainer or two, going through cycles of “hard work”, seeing little to no results, and then giving up. I’ve struggled with low back pain/weakness for all of my adult life. This has prevented me from even attempting certain exercises like dead lifts or back squats for fear of further injuring myself. I chose to work with Justin in particular after observing him work with clients in the gym, working with a wide range of people and training techniques, not to mention how hard all the workouts looked. I was not disappointed. Training with Justin was worth every penny and is, hands down, one of the best decisions I’ve made in a long time. Over the course of the six-month training program with Justin, I lost 20 pounds of body fat, learned countless new exercises and training techniques, and gained a noticeable amount of strength. What I'm most happy with however, is the knowledge I now have to continue progressing and improving thanks to him. In fact, I recently moved to a new city, forcing me to find a new gym, and was shocked to be offered a job as a personal trainer during my fitness assessment because of all he taught me. Justin is incredibly knowledgeable, observant, and knows how to coach people based on their needs and skill level. His passion for helping people shows in every session and he’s super fun to work with, even when he’s kicking your ass. High points: • Helped me achieve my weight loss goal while gaining strength • Provided realistic dietary guidance geared towards my body type and fitness goals • Created a training program specific to my personal fitness goals as well as any weaknesses/perceived injuries • I always felt safe training, adding weight, and trying new exercises because of his knowledge base and observant nature • And let’s be real… what a babe! 😉"

"Brady has been training me for a little over 6 months now and I couldn't be happier! I went from a size 10 to a 4 without really following a diet to closely! His knowledge of what works best is second to none! He will listen to u throughout the training and adjust if necessary. Brady is driven to get you to your goal through know how,compassion and understanding of the process. I will never go to another fitness trainer but him."

"What I like most about training with Josh is that he knows how to get results safely. I tweaked my back during a workout, so I sought out a trainer to help me work through it, and Josh has done just that. His recently updated studio is awesome, too. And the workouts are interesting and keep me engaged."

"Sarah really takes the time to understand what your personal goals are and tailors her training to your fit your fitness level, time, and individual preferences. I love that she creates a rounded program including nutritional advice that encourages healthy choices in both what you eat and what you do for the long term. Even while living in another state, working online with Sarah has kept me motivated to lose 10 pounds and even train for a 10k. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great personal trainer!"

"I have been training with Julia since August 17, 2015. In the 4 months since I started, I have been able to attend an average of 8-10 high intensity interval training (HIIT) sessions each month. My back ground in distance running, Cross-fit, and teaching physical education only slightly prepared me for the type of exercise Julia employs. I leave every session feeling well worked and more exhausted than I would after a 10k training run which takes about the same amount of time. Everything is scale-able and built to suit each individual regardless of age, gender, strength, or injury status. Julia will find a way to make sure you leave better than when you arrived. I play recreational softball, flag football, and soccer. In my short time with Julia, I have experienced greater success in all sports which can be attributed to gains in speed, agility, and strength. HIIT helps improve any sort of physical movement you may perform regularly and I can attest that it has improved my game in a very short amount of time. As an added bonus, I've lost over 45 pounds as a result of my work with Julia. For those of you with New Year's in mind, this would be a great place to start working toward your goals. If you're looking for an intense but enjoyable, self-paced exercise regime that can yield results quickly, I highly recommend joining OpenAir-NoCo and see how Julia can help you improve your life!"

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 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.

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.
