"Got a trainer on a whim and it was the best decision I ever made. Jacqi (my trainer) got back to me the same day I reached out and we had a session scheduled easily and quickly. Once started Jacqi made sure I hit, and exceeded my resolutions!! I've tried other trainers and, don't get me wrong they were good, but Jacqi offers not only amazing motivation and support, but she checked up on me regularly and that's amazing customer service. 10/10 recommend!"

"Tim Johnson is an excellent trainer! I started training with him one month ago and have already lost 7 pounds and 4 inches. His exercises are made to target every part of the body with very noticeable results. Workout sessions are powerful, but without the physical torture one imagines is needed to achieve a fit/toned body. Not only is Tim an excellent personal trainer, but a very kind and respectful person. He is flexible with hours, which is great if you have a busy lifestyle, and is willing to come to you for sessions. If anyone is looking to see results with motivation and positivity, Total Non-Stop Training with Tim is the way to go. Thank you Tim!"

"I had been going to the gym religiously (5days/wk) and i was getting stronger but my body was not changing like i wanted it to. I met Jamie and with the changes he helped me make to my routine i lost 30 pounds. He was very observant, adapting my workout to my capacity/ability/level. He was flexible, with where and when we met which helps because people's schedules are hectic. I'm not big on reviews and such but working with him definitely made a positive impact on my physical fitness. Awesome personal trainer!"

"Lisa is a wonderful personal trainer. I have been working with her the past year and half. She has helped me drop 50 lbs after the birth of my son. She motivates you to give it your all during your workouts and keep up the good work when not with her. She has taught me so much about nutrition. I have done every diet available out there. Lisa has taught me how to stop "dieting", eat right, and change my lifestyle. Anyone who needs consistency and motivation should reach out to Lisa. "

"I am happy to be able to say that Karl Avdek is the first person to put me on a horse,some 35 years ago. I was fortunate that after training under him for some time he took me on as a "trail hand" and was able to put together everything I had learned from him in a practical way. And so started a lifelong love and appreciation of horses that I was able to pass on to my children. I was taught in a very sensible, no nonsense way that led me to go on to training my children in everything from the "softener hand in training and backing" of my own Wild Mustang" and to be the trainer of special needs children. I know that I will never stop learning from Karl Avdek, as long as I can still get on a horse. Thank you Karl, from the bottom of my heart for giving me the tools to be able to share the joy of Horsemanship with my children and the many children I went on to instruct."

"After years of battling depression and diabetes, I signed up at the Edge and Fearfully asked for help and support. It was then I was assigned to Noah as my personal trainer and my Journey is one for the books. With his patience and compassionate heart he guided me through proper nutrition, understanding proper supplement intake and always answered my questions. Through Noah's positive and don't give up attitude I was able to loose over 50 pounds and loose over 10 inches around my waist. As we continue to work and improve on my physical strength and stability. I am also learning new ways to grow from the inside out positively. I love my new healthy life style and thanks to Noah I found the courage and strength to live life Fearlessly!""

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.
