"i have been working with Candace as a trainer for quite some time now and i honestly have nothing but gratitude towards her. the service that she provides is amazing. i had personal trainers in the past and speaking as a person who have dealt with weight her whole life i have to say that i cant recommend a better trainer. we work out at 6 am every day and even when i dont want to get up she motivates me to do so. i wont deny that she pushes me to my limit daily and after i am done sometimes i m sore for weeks but the workout is tailored to me and she is passionate about what she does. never have i seen her without a smile on her face nor has their been a day where she did not make sure that i pushed myself to do better in my workout. she checks up on me to make sure that i am eating right resting and working out even on days when i am not with her. she is an all out professional. i have to say that the best investment as humans that we can do is in our own well being and hiring Candance as my personal trainer is the best choice i have made in my life thus far. i can never repay her for helping me work towards my goal health and money is not enough to provide her for all she has done for me. i wake up everyday and see my body shaping out and it makes me all that more grateful. if ever someone needs a true to form trainer who lives by her teachings, there is no better choice for a trainer and i STAND BY THAT 100% if you want the best CANDACE IS THE BEST"

"I am a spinal cord injured patient with very high level injury which is challenging even for physiotherapists. I mostly wanted to stand and try some steps with calibers, improving my stamina, blood flow, core muscles, etc. Frantz is amazing! He is always professional, right on time and pays attention to everything to help you out individually! I could not even tell that I was his first spinal cord injured patient since he adapted so easily, he learned everything about my condition and he helped me optimize my training schedule, paying attention to the smallest details to correlate for example my diet, to figure out which muscles would be mostly helpful to exercise, etc. He pushes my limits to improve my stamina and targets improvement. I had many physiotherapists and personal trainers before but in fact Frantz targeted the right problems and I have seen improvements of my stamina and muscle strength, I can push easier with my wheelchair and my health status and fitness is excellent even though I just moved to Boston in September and normally it takes me many months of training to return to the baseline. I have not only reached my baseline but with Frantz I see real improvements and I feel comfortable and safe in his hands. Imagine that with my condition (incomplete tetraplegia) you need to be able to completely trust your trainer and he needs to know what he is doing to help you, otherwise a mistake could take you back and harm your health severely and sometimes irreversibly. After working with Frantz I am convinced that he is the best person I could find in a very affordable price to accomplish the best possible result so I would definitely recommend him to anyone!!! If he could handle so well my condition I believe he would be amazing for everyone! "

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.
