"I have been training with for Mike for 3 months starting the 2nd phase of my workouts and have seen serious gains on and off the field as a professional athlete. With his knowledge as an elite trainer and dietician, I've gained the weight I've needed to and developed the speed I've always wanted. He will work with you to meet and exceed your goals, great motivator, not to mention a great facility. "

"I can't describe myself as workout fanatic. Let's face it, it's so much easier to NOT work out than get into a workout regimen. I've probably worked with over a dozen trainers in my adult life, but no one stuck....until Nikki. I worked with many trainers who tried to use the intimidating factor or worked me out to the point that I couldn't walk 50 yards without yelping. Nikki is the only trainer I've worked with who pushes me, but also knows my limits (especially on Mondays). Do I enjoy working out...not really, but I do feel great afterwards. It didn't hurt that she came to my place to work out too. :) Nikki is the only one who has kept me motivated to even start a routine. I've increased my sessions from twice per week to three times per week and now five days per week. I've found myself feeling guilty when I have to cancel a session. I would do seven days if I could, but she does have a beautiful family waiting for her at home. :) Highly recommend! Looking forward to using other services from SoFlo. Good luck! "

"I'm so glad that my friend told me about Brian. He had him as his trainer for several mounths. I got in tuch with him for a year ago. Since that I've had him as my trainer. I have had some personal trainers before him that I was not satisfy with. What Brian does is Amazing. I saw great results after some weeks and now I'm stepping in to the gym with great confidence, I admire Brian and his work. I could always call him if I needed support or help. He also helped me out alot with the nutrition. Thanks to him I got a healthier Lifestyle. "

"Adair is an excellent trainer. Been working out for about a year and half little results. Within the 2 months working out with his guidance and proper form I started seeing results fast and feeling more energized and stronger. Best part is when people started noticing and ask me what's​ my secret."

"Krystina has helped me immensely with my mobility and flexability training. Always showing me different techniques to decompress my joints and stay loose as well as build stabilization strength. The biggest area of in improvement was in my lower back which Ms. Dowdell taught me that its the surrounding muscles like my hips that cause that area to be tight. Just by doing the exercises and stretching techniques a lot of the pressure on my lower back has been relieved and with being a martial artist it really makes a difference!"

"I’ve been training with Emily for over a month now. I was hesitant to hire a personal trainer after having a kid. I would always make excuses as to why I couldn’t make it to the gym or workout. Emily comes to the gym in my condo building, which is convenient and time-saving, being a full-time mother. Since the beginning of June 2018, I’ve lost about in an inch in my waist. Additionally, I feel that I have more energy throughout the day. Keep up the good work."

"Ahmed, the owner, is friendly and is very passionate about being healthy. He genuinely wants to see us reach our goals. He is very knowledgeable about nutrition and monitors everything we eat. He can even provide fully cooked meals if we don't want to cook!! He is very strict about maintaining proper form during every exercise and want us to make each rep count. He stresses quality over quantity. He is also well aware of our prior injuries and limitations as he is one of the few trainers who has ever even asked. We are VERY lucky to have found him. We have committed to four days a week with him. His gym is fully equipped and has everything we would ever use or need."

"I've been working with Damian for the past month at his private gym in the Aventura area and he has definitely taken my workouts to the next level. He is extremely attentive throughout our sessions, often working out right along with me, and always making sure I push myself as hard as possible. While his space is small, he has managed to pack it full of every piece of equipment you need and he keeps everything immaculately clean. Whether you are just looking to get in shape or you want to add serious intensity to your existing routine, I would highly recommend giving Damian a try. "

"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. ;)"

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.
