"I won't have worked with Chris for long (because I am moving for my job) but he keeps the workouts fresh and fun, and I actually enjoy working out with him. In the short period that we have worked together which is just two months, I have seen a lot of change in my body! I see that I not only lost the weight I was wanting to loose (18pounds) but I gained muscle as well! If I ever get to move back to Colorado Chris is the first person I will call for training! I have enjoyed every second of it and am sad that I have to go!"

"Going into my first personal trainer experience ever, I didn't know what to expect or how I would like it. Immediately, Ashton welcomed me with a big smile and handshake, then we got right to work. Ashton is extremely knowledgeable and motivated in the fitness field, making him the perfect personal trainer to work with! He kept my workouts doable yet challenging, ensuring safety the whole time. I was born missing a limb, and he was more than up to the task of helping modify things throughout each session, using aids such as grip straps and less reps/more sets. Ashton was quick to correct my alignment, making sure I was getting the most benefit from each motion, as well as was protecting my knees, back, etc. More than once, Ashton stayed with me an extra couple of minutes to explain parts we did not get to during our session, and ensured I knew how to perform motions on the paper trainers (I only worked with him once/week, and used his paper plans the other times I worked out). I wholeheartedly recommend Ashton to any person in need of a personal trainer-- I believe he works well with any gender and any age, as he is one of the most caring individuals I've encountered in the fitness world."

"I came to Curtis because I needed a change in my diet. I had tried to do it on my own before but was unsuccessful. I either sacrificed my performance in the gym or gained too much body fat for the physical image I desired. Curtis listened to my goals and analyzed my personality as well as my daily routine to create a personal meal plan that would adhere to my lifestyle. He would make sure to check in mid-week to receive feedback on what was going well/failing. Curtis knew whether he needed to make modifications or just give me good ole tough love to not let me fall off the wagon. The recipes he included with the grocery lists were quick and easy to follow. I really appreciated the way he listened to my needs and was always willing to provide an explanation as to why/what I was eating. I would recommend his services to anyone that is looking for a change whether it be big or small, he knows how to help you reach your goals."

"I have been training with Erica for about 3 months. The experience has been great! Erica is very professional and loves what she does. She always shows up on time for our sessions and the workouts are always challenging. I really appreciate her positive attitude and the way she encourages me even on the days I'm not feeling it. Erica is committed to helping me reach my fitness goals and it shows by the way she follows up with me even on days that we don't have a workout session. I also like how flexible she is because sometimes my schedule is hectic. If you are looking for a trainer I highly recommend Erica!"

"Muscle Activation Techniques or MATr, is a specific- non medical process used to evaluate muscle contractile efficiency. MATr is used to assess the current state of the neuromuscular systems ability to tolerate forces and sustainability. The goal of MATr is to increase a clients ROM (range of motion) by increasing the muscular systems ability to shorten (contract) effectively. In order for the body to properly move, muscles must do the work. As an MATr Certified Specialist, I have the training to restore muscle function which in turn increases performance in training, decreases muscle related pain, increases mobility while decreasing tightness. I also provide home exercise programs with the MAT process. You are only as good as your weakest link. This is a true individualized treatment process as well as exercise program."

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 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.

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.
