I have been doing a bootcamp class with Silvia for about 8 months now. I am stronger and more fit than I have been in years! The workouts are challenging and I always feel great afterwards. Silvia not only motivates us as we complete our sessions, but talks to us about eating good food and living a healthy lifestyle. I can see a definite change in my body and I look forward to continuing my workouts with Silvia!

Stacey organized a bootcamp at a local public park during the summer. Although it was early (6am!) I felt like I got the best workouts with her and they were totally worth waking up. The price was super affordable too! I loved how it was outside, and I felt like I was always working new body parts which was a great change from my normal gym routine. Over the winter I took part in a "weight-loss" challenge at Let's Go Fitness. It included one bootcamp class per week. I loved the flexibility of being able to go either on Saturday morning or Thursday night (especially since I travel on several weekends). The workouts were hard, and I always felt sore the next several days. Love that feeling!

I really don't like working out because it's hard for me to get motivated. After signing up with my bootcamp, I was introduced to Nae. She is very professional, motivating, and always prepared. The workouts are difficult but you get the results.

I am a 53 yo masters track and field runner and have a full time job working as a Biochemist for a Biotech company in Maryland. I run distances from 60 to 400m indoors and outdoors.I have been competing since 2010 to present day. I have known Sanjay since the summer of 2012 and have worked with him full time during the track and field season September 2012 to August 2013 and part time for the last four months of the 2014 season. Coming to Sanjay I was running 400m repeatedly at mid to high 59 seconds, after working with Sanjay for eight months my 400m time fell to 57 seconds. A whopping 2 seconds in less than a full season. My working with Coach Sanjay for the last four months of the 2014 track has seen my 200m time dropped to 24.70 compared to the same time last year I was doing mid 25. So my masters track and field career with Sanjay has taken me to two life time PB at 200 and 400m That was an impressive accomplish in that short of a time. My nutrition, sleeping,job and life style was the same. The only change I had made was start working with Sanjay four to five times a week in and out the Gym and on the track. The things that impress me about Sanjay 1. He is a very good teacher at the art of running the 400m 2. His training style build you from inside out .. Meaning he develop you mentally and physically on and off the track. 3. His training methods and applications are structured in order for you to achieve your goals. 4. He has the ability to see one weakness and is smart enough to make adjustments to achieve positive results. 5. He try to engage himself by attending track meets that I have competed in. 6. His quality of work is 10 out of 10 as his hands on approach makes me want to work harder to achieve my goals. The only thing I see that could improve my experience and relationship with coach Sanjay is personality conflicts. But hey, people are different and so it takes time to build and get use to another that is different than you.

Jay is an outstanding trainer. As a former Division 1 College Athlete I feel as though I'm back with my team training when I go to bootcamp classes. Not only am I challenged each and every day physically with the workouts he gives us, but I know I have another family to always have my back. Jay has never given us a workout that is the same as another one in the entire year I've been training with him, which is quite impressive! He is constantly changing the exercises, the layout and structure of the workout, and the space in which the workout takes place to ensure it never gets old! Everyone who joins the bootcamp class is motivated to become a better athlete and a better person. Also, Jay is extremely motivating when it comes to nutrition and accountability. He helps create individual plans that fit each client's lifestyle. I look forward to my bootcamp classes and on days where work is grueling, I know I can count on bootcamp classes to pick up my spirits. The people in the classes push me just as much as Jay and it's an amazing level of accountability that keeps us all motivated to be better.

Lorenzo Ramirez, Coach Zo, is one of the best coaches that I have ever worked with. His positive attitude is contagious and he makes you want to work out and improve! The words, "I can't" are not in his vocabulary but the words, "you can" certainly are. Coach Zo makes you believe that you can overcome any obstacle, conquer your fears, improve your health and fitness, and become the best version of yourself. You can't go wrong with Coach Zo in your corner - he's an excellent example who not only talks the talk but walks the walk. It's a privledge to call him Coach and friend.

I have known Manny since 2009 and he is definitely not the typical trainer. Besides helping you reach physical goals he encourages and motivates you to exceed in mental goals as well. He has extensive knowledge on various exercises/exercise routines, nutrition, and chemical properties and processes of you name it! If you have questions he will be more than happy to answer you and if he does not have the answer he will get back to you the same day with the information you need to be successful! Manny has such an approachable personality and lights up the room with his presence. Manny is a very respectable man and shows you how to have fun while getting a workout in that best fits your needs! He addresses your level of fitness with an evaluation and within the duration of you working with him, he will compare your initial eval to your future ones to show you how your body has been changing by both measurement and percentages. Working with Manny has broken my threshold to the things I never thought I was capable of doing. I could have never gotten to where I am now without him! He has helped me reach beyond my expectations/goals for myself and encourages me to exceed even what I have already accomplished! Success is not where it ends with Manny, so be prepared to reach higher and higher levels in your life that you would have never imagined possible! I have done his circuit training, bootcamps, and personal training and I have loved every part of it! I went from being around 170lbs to my lowest 135lbs. I am in the best shape I have ever been in, in my life thanks to Manny! If you want real life results, contact him and change your life for the better! I love you!

I've been a client of Grow or Die Athletics for over two years. During that time I've lost 35 pounds. This is due to great workouts with Brandon and following the meal plans and advice. In addition to the workouts I've attended his bootcamps which are challenging, there are exercises I've done that I never thought I could do (flip a tire). Brandon is s motivator and encourager and he listens to you so that you can reach your goal. He does his part and then it is necessary as a client to do my part. If you do what your trainer tells you it is amazing the results.

I love Bootcamp Brandon because it takes personal interest in meeting your need. The exercises are hard yet he works with you at your level to obtain success not only that he's open for suggestions that you may regret later. Some of my best fun is trying no things with Brandon.

awesome early AM Bootcamp program! would def recommend for mom's looking to loose baby-weight after pregnancy -- they let you go at your own pace and don't yell in your face when you can't do a certain exercise, unlike other bootcamps I have been to!

Tee's Fit was amazing. During her bootcamp, she was very attentive and pushed me so that I would reap the benefit of a good workout. I left drenched in sweat so I definitely would go back. I would highly recommend her to help you achieve your fitness goals .

I signed up for bootcamp to get in shape and because gravity is taking its toll with bat wings developing and core being flabby. Jeanette is extremely knowledgeable, professional and helpful working individually with you within a group. She does a great job of offering variety of workouts and exercises to get your butt (literally) into shape. Her enthusiasm and encouragement makes you look forward to class. Would highly recommend to anyone wanting to add to their fitness routine or starting anew like me. I'm so glad I joined, since now I have more energy, have a toned body and feel stronger.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
