"I am training for football. Serge is truly a professional and knows everything about health and fitness. He is easy to talk to and at the same time motivating. You can tell he has a passion for what he does. I have been lifting weights for over 10 years but he still teaches me things I didn't know about myself. I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking to improve their physique. "

"Until 6 years ago, I never stepped foot in a gym except to watch a basketball game. My only form of exercise was walking around the neighborhood or on a treadmill. In 2010, I was diagnosed with an illness and had lost 30 pounds but not in a good way. Shortly thereafter my wife, also a client of Tedy's, recommended or should i say demanded that i start working out with Tedy at her gym, who she has been training with for some 10 years. At first, it started with her training me at my house because of the illness, but eventually i made my way to her gym, Raw Energy Fitness. Recently, her daughter Stela has done most of my training and I am equally pleased. They are both extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of physical training, emotional and mental included. Now, rather than just walking I work my upper and lower body along with doing cardio. Both girls know my capabilities and limitations very well and still managed to help me take control over the illness, get stronger, and improve my test results year after year. For the longest time, this illness held me back while a constantly developed colds, and sicknesses. I truly believe that through my training at the gym I have greatly improved my physical and mental health, and of course my strength. My energy and stamina are better than ever. There is a great benefit belonging to a smaller gym that has developed its own personal touch from the people that create it. Today, after more than 6 years, and at my ripe age of 68 I am much stronger in both mind and body thanks to Tedy and Stela. Forever grateful, Neil. Oh and Adrienne thanks you too for these last 10 years also. She just won't say it. ;)"

"For years I have struggled to lose. I have tried so many diets and nutrition plans. Exercise had become a dreaded chore that left me hungry and fatigued. I decided to try new approach and that’s when I found Holden and I have never looked back! Through the duration with Holden, I went from 160lb to 130lb. I felt great inside and out. His workouts, tailored specifically for me, have been incredibly effective and fit well with my busy lifestyle. He kept me accountable for what I was eating and drinking, and he sincerely cared about my success. Best of all, Holden has given me the tools and the confidence to not only reach my goal weight, but to find more joy and happiness in many other areas of my life as well. I have confidence now, thanks to him, that I can achieve the goals I set for myself. Holden was truly a blessing to me."

"I have had Judo and martial arts training with Jon Paul during the past three years in Miami. I have found Jon Paul to be an excellent trainer, very flexible and adaptable to people of different age groups, fitness level, and backgrounds. I recommend Jon wholeheartedly not only for martial arts training, but based on his qualifications and educational level, I would also recommend him for other fitness type of training, such as health related conditioning and strength, weight loss, body toning, muscle growth, or training for sports specific activities.

"Jasmine doesn't take any crap. She is very knowledgeable and brings out the best in you. I complained quite a bit during our workouts but she didn't let me quit. She would always politely tell me to suck it up and once I started to see results, in my head I was like she actually knows what she is talking about lol. She listens to your body and provides workouts based on what your goals are."

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.
