"I was hesitant at first, since most personal trainers seem to be more drill sergeant than trainer, and I usually end up hurt. But I just moved to the area from NY, so figured I'd give it a go. I was really impressed that Rap took a lot of time to watch me walk, do squats and other movements to assess my posture and body alignment issues. He said I have too much curve in my back. That's true! And then he said something about tight hips...I knew he really had me pegged. I felt instantly more comfortable knowing he would design something that wouldn't end up with me in back spasms. Better than that, he really took time to watch every exercise I did and corrected me- he never left me alone to flounder, and was always positive and encouraging. I felt that his program was designed specifically for me and my body. Rap is a rare find!"

"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've never used a personal trainer before but I've always heard that they kick your butt like a drill instructor: Josh was different then that, laid back and very motivational, he has a calmness about him and it makes you feel comfortable with new exercises and pushing yourself more and more. I lost a total of 17 pounds and lost 8% body fat in about 6 months, I've kept the weight off and understand what and how to eat to maintain my new body. I definitely recommend."

"I wouldn’t describe Dave as just a personal trainer. He is my biggest cheerleader, a great friend, a bit of a therapist, as well as an exceptionally knowledgeable personal trainer. When I started, my initial fear was physically not being able complete exercises or intimidation by the exercises or trainer. With Dave, I know that he will never make me do something beyond my ability nor does will he ever make me feel incapable. Like I said, Dave is my biggest cheerleader and is always pushing me to finish my sets/workout. Dave’s focus isn’t solely on our time in the gym together. He’s also concerned with what I do outside of our sessions, making sure I eat right and do cardio, so I can achieve maximum results. Dave put together a customized meal plan for me based on my cooking abilities, limited time, and foods that I will actually eat. With the meal plan and Dave’s support outside our session, he helps me set and meet realistic goals. Dave has also been amazing at working around my busy schedule to make sure I meet with him regularly, so I can meet my goals. Dave takes the time to explain each exercise to me in layman’s terms and describes which part of the body it’s working. He always has a smile on his face and is full of energy, even at our late night sessions. Training with Dave has been one of the best decisions I have ever made for myself, as I feel physically and mentally healthier. For anyone looking to get in shape, lose weight, or just figure out an exercise routine that works for them, I would recommend Dave without any reservations."

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.
