"I am a 54 year old female who prided herself as always being fit and in shape. Over the last several years, I gained about 30 pounds and I was not feeling good about myself. I found Danielle through Thumb Tack. Danielle has been able to keep me on track and consistent with workouts and healthy eating. I have lost 10 pounds and many inches over the last 6-7 weeks. Danielle is reliable, punctual, and always has different workouts in store for me so I never get bored. I went on vacation at the end of July and felt good in my own skin. I put a swimsuit on for the first time in years. Danielle keeps me motivated and I look forward to more challenging workouts It's not just about weight loss. It's more about feeling happy and self assured. Danielle has given that back to me and I am grateful."

"Couldn't have asked for a better trainer. It had been years since I went to the gym. Worried I would fail and become frustrated, Graeme created training that was perfect for me! Just enough to keep me from feeling pain (knee, shoulder) yet just enough to keep me strong and growing weekly in health with a fair amount of push!!!! He totally restored faith in exercise!!!"

"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!"

"My son, my nephew, and myself all benefit from learning about how health and fitness go together. Believe me, I'm somebody who hates the word 'exercise', because I view exercise as physical work that serves only to remind me of how out-of-shape I am. However, 'fitness' is something that I believe requires Body, Mind and Spirit working together to do what they do best...serving to remind me of how good and complete I can feel. Dave has shown us all how the benefits of health and fitness are immediate. His passion for enlightening, encouraging, and empowering people across the board is undeniable. He believes in each of his clients, for he sees beyond that which most choose to. I highly recommend Dave as both a personal trainer and health coach to my family, my friends, and to my clients. Today, make self-care a priority and call Dave at Renaissance Health and Fitness. I'm so very glad I did. Dale Kingsley, LMFT Trinity Therapeutic Care, LLC"

"I have been working out with Peter for over 5 years. In that time he has helped me change my body, my strength, my flexibility and my understanding about body alignment. Our workouts are not all about how much I can sweat -- they are about what my body needs (be it cardio, strength training or stretching) and he has helped me to understand the importance of consistent movement --even on the days when working out feels hard. He follows up with me after workouts to see how I am feeling and he checks in during the week when we are not together. Peter goes the distance to ensure we get our time in each week -- even when the schedules get a little crazy. I feel I am in good hands with Pete. His energy and enthusiasm during our workouts make the time fly. "

"I have been training with Noah for approximately 5 months. He is undoubtedly one of the best trainers I have worked with for a number of reasons. First of all, I have a very busy and unpredictable schedule and he has been extremely accommodating and understanding. I have not missed a week since I began in February. He has created a plan that fits my needs and my age very nicely. He is able to get the most out of me, knowing exactly how far I can go. There is no way I would be able to do the same on my own. He is creative in his workouts, which I love because you never get bored. We work a new exercise or two into each session, which is great for the mind and the body. He is absolutely committed to getting me to my goals and knows how to create and execute a clear path toward achievement of those goals. Noah is a student of human physiology and he understands the importance of stretching, which is critical to a person my age. He has introduced me to new stretches which I am able to also do on my own. Last month, I has lower back spasms and he spent an entire hour stretching me in the right places which provided immediate relief. In short, Noah is a committed and reliable trainer who has been the perfect work out partner for me from every perspective. I would recommend him highly to anyone looking to get in better shape, and do it in a safe and appropriate manner."

"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."

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.
