"Ramon Was an Awesome Trainer from the moment we met I could tell he was the right guy for the job. He taught me the importance of posture when it comes to Excercise and I noticed its been getting a lot better he a trainer that cares about you and is focused on you making improvements he not just looking to collect your money. My favorite thing about Ramon he available outside of the training and does not mind answering questions he welcomes this so its nice to have that not all trainers are like that !"

"He's great and has a great facility. I am continuing to work with Jake going forward for my training needs, he's very involved and interested in his clients and provides help and tips outside of the gym which is really helpful. Everyone at Fitness Xperts is super supportive, even those trainers I haven't trained with. It's a great place for anyone and I can't say enough great things about Jake and Fitness Xperts!"

"I have been training with Josh for the past year. My daughter originally introduced me to him and indeed she also still trains with him and I have not looked back. I know that I would never have achieved the level of fitness and wellness I have at my age, (currently forty-nine) if not for the personal attention given in my training sessions. Josh is always very encouraging but also determined to work you hard to reach your goals. He has a vast knowledge of his profession, and answered any questions I had any time I needed help. I would recommend EVOS Fitness in a heartbeat to anyone who is ready to change their life, health, and well being for the better. I aim to continue to train and maintain my best level of fitness with their help for a long time to come."

"I had never worked with a trainer and was very intimidated to start, but knew I had to make a change. Jason helped me believe I could succeed and helped me change my life! I wouldn't be at a 70 pound weight loss if it wasn't for his training/workouts and his belief that I could do it. I'll be forever grateful for his knowledge and experience. The work is hard but well worth it!"

"Elite Strength & Fitness fits into my schedule and is an efficient and effective way to exercise. The one on one training has left me feeling confident. Having had back issues for years, I have been thrilled with the strengthening exercises. It has made a huge difference in how I feel. The climate controlled room is chilled and I leave feeling great and not drenched in sweat. It is so nice not to have to deal with a health club scene. To top it off, my cholesterol improved after I started Elite Strength and Fitness. In the report that my Internist sent to me she wrote: "Additional good news is that you have improved your cholesterol significantly! Likely due to your exercise!" Thank you Elite Strength and Fitness!"

"In the 15 months that I’ve been working out with Garrett at Bodies By Garrett, I’ve seen more progress than I thought possible. I’ve had substantial gains in strength, endurance, recovery time, and overall energy level. I’ve also had many intangible gains as well – I now enjoy the soreness after a hard workout, and I actively look for ways to build healthier habits. I’ve lost a significant amount of weight, but the number on the scale isn’t as important as my overall health – which I believe now even more than before. Garrett is incredibly knowledgeable and genuinely cares about his clients and I feel comfortable trying new things and not feeling silly if I don’t do them right. Garrett pushes me harder than I’d be able to push myself, encourages and motivates me to do better, and yet he knows how much I am capable of and inspires me to reach new goals. Now I’m addicted, setting new goals for strength, speed and overall fitness. Thank you, Garrett, for helping me become a better version of myself!"

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.

What is kickboxing?

Kickboxing is a type of martial art whose basic moves are widely practiced in personal and group fitness regimens. In combat kickboxing, two competitors fight using four points of contact — both hands and both feet — unlike traditional boxing, where competitors are allowed to use their hands. In competitive kickboxing, opponents must remain standing, and no fighting can occur on the mat or ground. Kickboxing has its roots in Muay Thai and other ancient martial arts. Some elemental moves from kickboxing include roundhouse kicks, back kicks, hooks, uppercuts and more.

Modern group fitness kickboxing is practiced in gyms and workout studios across the country. It draws its moves from combat kickboxing, but instead of fighting with an opponent, participants perform jabs, crosses, punches and kicks in instructor-led, choreographed routines set to music. Personal trainers also incorporate kickboxing moves into workout routines, spending time punching and kicking the bag. These strength-building moves, mixed with high-intensity intervals, boost heart rate and increase strength.

Is kickboxing good exercise?

Kickboxing is great exercise. It works your whole body and really gets your heart pounding. Kickboxing combines upper- and lower-body movements like roundhouse kicks and uppercut punches that boost calorie burning. The type of kickboxing you do will determine how much exercise you get. Kickboxing training that takes place in a martial arts studio will involve kicking and punching a sandbag or sparring with a competitor, both of which will sharply increase the amount of exercise you’ll experience in a kickboxing session. Comparatively, a study by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that women doing group fitness cardio kickboxing burned between 6.45 and 8.3 calories per minute, or approximately 350-450 calories burned during an hour-long class. This is roughly what you can expect to burn with jogging or similar exercise, but ACE says that cardio kickboxing offers the added benefits of increased strength and flexibility, sharper reflexes, and improved coordination. Whether you’re training to fight competitively, learning kickboxing as a form of self-defense, or taking cardio kickboxing at your local gym, you’ll get a full-body workout with positive health benefits.
