"I have been working with Leslie since January 2017, initially twice weekly but then increased to three times a week. I have gained balance, strength, muscle mass and tone. In addition, I have gained bone mass in my radius and spine as evidenced by a recent DEXA Scan. My blood pressure has improved dramatically. Leslie has identified my deficiencies and we work on them together. She is very positive, focused and passionate about her work. She is mature and compassionate. As a health care professional, I admire her personal commitment to continuing education. I never thought exercise could be this much fun and so addictive. I look forward to every session with her. Every session is tailored to my needs. She is prompt and organized. I have lost a significant amount of weight over the past 7 years with diet and exercise. I was obese as a child and maintaining my weight has always been a struggle for me. Leslie has helped me maintain my weight loss in addition to supporting me in losing additional weight. She “gets it!”"

"Lamar is a special kind of trainer. I say that because whatever your goal is, he goes out of his way to find the solutions that work best for you. He could easily just give you a cookie cutter program and absent himself from your goals; but whether it is using technology or putting his own body to work with yours, he exhaust himself finding the best solution for you. He will meet you at your level and then help you improve and become better at what it is that you do. In my case I have been an amateur martial arts athlete most of my life and in my late 40's I have decided that competing in the open Ultra Heavy Weight Class in Brasilian Jiujitsu would be a blast. But I needed to improve my conditioning. I called on Lamar. Not only did he design a program for me and my specific needs as an older athlete. He also suited up in a Gi/Kimono and drilled with me until neither of us could barely move. The result was both a bronze and later a silver metal in my first two competitions. I could not a have achieved my goals without his help. That is what I want in a trainer . A trainer who cares about what it is I want to do rather than making me into something I'm not. I find that to be the difference between a novice and a master level trainer, of which is the latter, Lamar McKay is a Master LevelTrainer. Jose A. Esquea"

"I’ve been working with Mike for over a year and half. I had wonderful results until I fell off with life’s curveballs. Mike’s energy and motivation gave me energy to push through on days I did not want. Mike is a very professional trainer at all times, his punctuality is outstanding, for example: you have a 9:30am session with him, Mike is there at 9am waiting for you. Most trainer are accessible all times of the day, unlike Mike you can hit him up pretty much anytime and he will reply back. Mike is the BEST!!"

"After dealing with a 6 month illness and subsequent weight gain I decided I needed to do something different and get some help and get in shape. I was very skeptical of the trainer routine but thought I would investigate and see if it could work for me. From the minute I spoke with Joe on the phone I knew that I had found someone different who could make the difference in my physical well being I was looking for. Joe is unbelievably focused on you as a client from the very first moment. At my first appointment he had me walk and assessed that I had weakness on my left side I knew nothing about. Then he went about assessing every aspect of my physical condition and teaching me specific exercises tailored to me and what I needed and would deal with each weakness. Each subsequent meeting has been an experience. He constantly reassesses my condition, letting me progress to another level when appropriate and modifying what we are doing when he finds another weakness to be addressed. This experience is totally different from gong to a gym and working on machines in a routine. Joe's approach is to address every part of the foundation in your physical well being and to build the foundation strong and then to progress from there. Joe is fanatical about what he does and in making a huge difference in your life. He finds issues to address you have no idea exist and when you follow his instructions you gain flexibility you didn't realize you lost and feel better than you imagined you could feel. I was a skeptic but took a chance on Joe to help me. It has turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made in years. Joe is very knowledgeable in the science and explains the rationale for everything he does. He pushes you to do what has to be done and doesn't tolerate slackers so be prepared. The workout is intense and the homework is focused and tailored to you. To help you do your workouts at home properly he videotapes the right way to do what he wants you to do and posts in on You Tube so you can review the exercise at home and do it right every time. Because he tailors your workout to you many of the You Tube posts are just for you. Where else do you get that level of professionalism, caring, and personalization? Working with Joe for the past 3 weeks has had a huge impact on my personal fitness and I can't wait to see what the next 2-3 months brings. If you are serious about your personal fitness and really want to change there is NOBODY better than Joe. If you want to slack off and just go through the motions save yourself a lot of time and just go to a gym."

"I'm writing this only one month in, but so far she's been wonderful to work with. She has three plans, and I chose the one I wanted. I gave her my goals, and she made an entire regimen for me, including stretches. I highly recommend meeting with her before starting the workout, she teaches you everything and sets the weights to fit you. 10/10"

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 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.

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.

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.
