I started my first day of training today and I'm extremely happy with my decision to have Anna as my trainer. She has to be the most amazing person I've meet in a long time, she's patient with me and she took the time to learn my strength and weakness before moving forward with training me.. Her work out area at home is clean and very much comfortable... I'm beyond excited for this journey with her and I look forward to very work out session with her.. I must say after my first work I feel extremely good just knowing I have Anna as a trainer....

very impressive. I was seeking private fitness training outside a traditional fitness center and Kenny is able to accomodate. I feel I am pushed to my limits, which is something I personally require. I appreciate the flexability and the costs are very reasonable.

Fantastic! I have been working out in the gym for over 25 years. I was in a car accident seven years ago and stopped working out. I gained 75 pounds and Lost a lot of functionality. I didn't think he could do anything to help me, and I didn't think he could show me anything I didn't know. I was wrong on both counts ! He has me doing from fetal movement combined with strength training and I'm feeling a little better. SHe is enthusiastic about her job, and is an excellent motivator. She pushes me just enough. I highly recommend her

Ricardo is very attentive and professional. In two trains he heard my issues and was very respectful of my limits, all while still pushing me and keeping me motivated. You can tell that he is very knowledgeable in his field and knows how to do a variety of things (water training, trx, weight-lifting is what I have experienced this far). I can't rave enough about his water training. Let's just say it's much more that 'water aerobics', I am young and relatively fit and I was able to reach my limits. I am hooked, hired him full time and hope to keep working with him in the future. Highly recommended! Definitely worth a consultation.

This is going to be long! After being widowed suddenly at age 56 in 2014, I found myself slipping slowly into a state of uselessness. The very active lifestyle I formerly enjoyed included running half marathons and most recently the NYC Marathon last November - all to fundraise for child protection and water projects in Haiti and Africa through World Vision. My desire was to continue in service, and I was further inspired during a 10-day "Vision Trip" to Ethiopia and Kenya with World Vision to visit water projects in World Vision communities, meet the villagers the projects served, meet one of my sponsored children, and run "The Great Ethipoian Race". My 9 travel companions and I also went to collection sites where women and children were fetching contaminated water for drinking and cleaning. Witnessing this and getting to speak with the villagers moved my heart to continue in service to help them. Once I got back to a house without my husband though, I sank into a feeling of unworthiness, uselessness, lack of motivation, and despair. Even running did not cheer me as it used to. I carried the guilt of not moving to help the people I had met in Africa. Before leaving on a 10-day vacation at the end of April, I was carrying 7 lbs. over my race weight. During the vacation, I gained 9 lbs. more. Once home, I started back to a half-hearted workout program, but had a hard time quitting sugary treats. Then, I gained 2 lbs. more! What a failure I was. I was weighing more than ever - besides during my pregnancy. I realized that I needed someone who would be there for me to force me to get back into a regular and sound workout program. The things I hated the most were - not wanting to or feeling like I could run another half marathon, my growing belly that reflects an imminent serious health problem, and being stagnant in my service to the people who had moved me in Africa. Then, after having used Thumbtack to hire a tree pruner and liking the service, I decided to look for a personal trainer who would force me off of my butt. I really liked the way I received immediate responses and profiles. Once I had narrowed it down to 2 trainers, I scheduled interviews with both of them. They both interviewed very well, but Eric seemed to "fight" for my business. He was willing to train me every day that I was home and on weekends for the same price as weekdays. I work as a flight attendant, and my schedule varies. Eric was also less expensive than the other interviewee and super flexible with his hours. I hired him, and we started training the following day. There's nothing to complain about with Eric. He's either right on time with our appointments or more often than not, he texts me if he's able to get to me a little earlier. He texted me the one time he was running a little late too. He doesn't keep me wondering, and I appreciate his energy. Eric really encourages me, and I needed to have someone to get me wanting to be dressed in my workout clothes and ready to go when he would arrive. When he started with me, I really wanted to perform well for him when I didn't want to do it for myself. Now, I'm back to wanting to be performing on my own and seeing my future as being able to run again for my friends in Africa or continuing with being a child ambassador for sponsorship. Since May 16, Eric has trained me at my home 8 times. He put together a daily workout schedule for me to do either in my hotel room or at the hotel fitness center when I'm away from home. He taught me how to use the TRX system and resistance bands when I'm away, and he had me record a video of him going through all of the exercises for me to reference. My memory is not the best, but I don't need my memory when I have the videos to follow and my plan sheet that he provided for me. During our sessions, he coaches me enthusiastically through my sets and keeps me moving fast. In 45 minutes, I'm getting 100% of his creativity with the way he uses the items in my home gym plus things like brooms and garden tools that are around to give me a super effective workout. He can really think quickly on his feet and most importantly, he makes the workouts FUN! He keeps me pretty sore, but not so sore that I can't function. Also, before the marathon, I had 3 injuries during training - my Achilles, my calf, and my knee at separate times. With Eric's workouts, I feel that these three areas are getting stronger, and are not a problem nor weak. Eric's workouts don't include crazy, injury-likely, exercises. Eric took measurements when we started training together. So, I can't give specific results right now because we will take the next measurements after I've been training 4 weeks. I do see that my arms are already more toned, but my belly is still flabby. I don't expect that area to respond right away anyway. He's having me use the app "MyFitnessPal" to keep track of what's going into my mouth, and he had me adjust the percentages of fat, protein, and carbs in the app. I'm a little discouraged that I've only lost 2.8 lbs. from my highest weight, but at least I'm not still gaining and I am more toned. When I hit the 4 weeks, I'd like to submit another review so that you can see the real results. I've decided to stick with Eric's personal training for at least 90 days. After that, I hope to have the confidence to go to the gym he's opening from time to time or have him still come to my home once per week to keep me on track. My finances will most likely determine that. Ultimately, I hope to maintain this lifestyle change. The good thing is that I'm being held accountable by Eric, and I'm happy to check in with him by text when I'm out of the country to prove that I'm doing my daily workouts without him. It's good to have someone to keep me motivated. Also, he practices what he preaches. He's in excellent shape himself, exudes youth and energy, and reflects a happy life through his smile and glow. He always keeps things upbeat and positive, seeks and works hard to meet his own goals for his business and desire to help people, and that impresses me in this handsome and charming young man. Finally, I highly recommend Eric to anyone like myself who had maybe been an athlete and for one reason or another, has fallen into a deep slump, depression, and lack of motivation. Eric's energy and positive attitude will get you moving again and wanting to do good in this world. He'll get you out of bed and feeling great!!

I’ve met many trainers in the past, but Brandon is the one that made a difference on me. He is very consistent, and loves his job which is very important when working with a trainer. He is very goal oriented when training you, and at the same time works with my style of work out with his added expertise. For example, I want cardio in my training, so he adjust to request and always applies knowledge into my training. Hoping to get closer to my goal, and can’t thank Brandon enough for getting me closer.

A 5 star review hardly sums up my experience training at SFTS. My trainer, Christian motivates me every session and his positivity and knowledge about nutrition and fitness carries over to all aspects of my life. He’s brilliant when it comes to fitness and nutrition and he trains me based on my personal needs and goals. My training sessions are constantly switched up and my results are beyond rewarding. The vibe at SFTS is welcoming and everyone motivates each other to keep pushing and train harder. Every trainer here is undoubtedly an expert in their field; you will Not find anyone better! When training at SFTS you’re more than just a client, you’re family.

She is amazing for many reasons: 1- She is a woman , so she understands me in my bad days. 2- She encourages me throughout 3- Its not only about the training sessions for her...she msgs to see how r u doing and I think is really nice from her to do that. 4- Thanks to her I am really comited to my training and to reach my goals. 5- I used to think that exercises will be boring and She changed my perception. Although she is professional when it comes to training we still managed to have a good laugh. 6- and most of all I am seing the results! Thank you Dienifer!

My experience training with Armand Fitness is hardly summed up by a five star review. I came to Christian with specific fitness goals and he created a costume plan tailored just for me! He also never fails to get you excited and pumped up for each and every workout. Can't give him enough thanks! Keep up the good work!

I needed weight training to help make my bones stronger. It was suggested by my Doctor to get the help from a Personal Trainer to help me accomplish this. He has been a tremendous help & I am feeling so much better. It is easier to walk, bend, lift & my balance has improved. I plan to continue with Marty for many years to follow. I am much stronger and greatly improved.

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.
