1. What fitness goals did you want to accomplish when you hired a trainer? I was interested in healthy meal plans and wanted lose weight and tone up. And, I was thinking of running the KDF mini-marathon again, but needed some motivation and I knew if I lost some weight and started eating better that I’d get the energy and be more motivated. 2. What goals have been accomplished so far? How? I’ve lost weight and am eating better. I feel more energized and am happy to be running again! I’ve also noticed some toning & love that my clothes are getting loose! :) 3. How many pounds and/or inches have you lost since training with Bethany? So far I’ve lost 20 lbs. (159.6 lbs. on Nov. 16, 2013 and 139.6 lbs. Jan. 13, 2014) Inches lost: ? 4. Does Bethany make the workouts fun? Yes she does! She finds ways to not make the workouts boring - they are challenging, but change often and keep me going. For example with cardio - there’s some interval training so it’s not doing the same pace for the full workout. She mixes things up and it really helps keep the motivation going. 5. Do you feel when training with Bethany, you feel challenged? Definitely! I haven’t had one workout that wasn’t challenging. I’m a competitive person so when a workout is given to me, I’m determined to complete it. I trust Bethany to give me a workout she knows I can do and I do my best to get it done. I always feel good afterward and am ready for the next challenge. 6. How Bethany kept you motivated to stick with the program you and she designed together on day 1? She’s always changing it up and keeping it interesting. It’s not the same workout every week and it really helps with motivation. The meal plans are also very good and change often, plus the recipes are super easy and makes planning less stressful. I LOVE every meal I’ve had so far! 7. After working with Bethany, what have you learned to do better or even about yourself? (i.e. How to eat better, you are stronger than you thought, better educated on strength & endurance training, rehabilitated from an injury, etc.) I’ve learned how to eat better and how what I eat helps my energy level and what the best options for pre and post workout are. I’ve also learned that I can do my strength workouts at home, that I don’t need a lot of equipment to have a good workout. And, with the cardio workouts, Bethany has set up for me, I’ve learned how to build up my endurance. I am so excited to be ahead of the training program for the mini-marathon. I usually start training mid-January but now I’m a month ahead and feel like at this rate I have a chance to beat my time from 2 years ago! 8. Would you recommend Bethany to friends and family? Why? Yes I would and I did (my husband). I have worked out with other trainers, but never found one that does meal planning - which is why I first went to Bethany. I did an internet search and her name came up so I looked around for information about her and found her FaceBook page (B Powerful...). I contacted her and after talking with her about my goals, I knew she was the trainer I was looking for. The workouts (strength & cardio) are challenging but doable and the meal plans are easy to follow and delicious! 9. What did you like most about personal training and working with Bethany? She is very knowledgeable and easy to talk to, always positive and upbeat. She answers any questions I have and offers alternative options to training or meals. I like how the workouts are never the same each week, and how she got me thinking differently about running on a treadmill with the interval and cardio blast workouts she gives me. I like how she offers so many meal options and that the recipes have few ingredients and are super easy to make. I’ve started to enjoy planning meals each week and look forward to each of my workouts. Bethany is a fantastic trainer & meal planner, I feel that I am much closer to my goals and am reaching them much faster with Bethany’s guidance. 10. What are you long-term goals and how do you plan to achieve them? I hope to continue losing inches & weight and toning up, while getting stronger and building my endurance. I plan to keep up with my training and eating plans, which will hopefully turn into running a PR in April’s mini-marathon race!

Noah was very professional and always on time for our training sessions. He always pushed me to keep going everytime i got tired. Anytime time he noticed an exercise was a bit too much for me he scaled it back, he was very attentive. He also helped me with my diet by emailing me a meal plan and recommendations that he thouht would take my training to the next level for the best results. Noah is a great trainer and i will recommend him to anyone i know that's looking for a trainer.

I have been training with Tatiana for 5 months now and it has been the best decision I have ever made for my body! In the past, I have worked out and lost weight on my own , but had trouble maintaining results. The total-body transformation that i am experiencing now is greater than I ever could have imagined! Ive lost weight and gained muscle and I feel incredible. At 4'11" tall, I never thought of myself as someone who could lift weights and gain muscle, but Tatiana has shown me how to weight train properly for my body and im thrilled with the results: I can now leg press 270lbs!!! After every session I leave feeling like there is nothing I can't do! In addition to my gains in strength and weight loss, I have also had significant increases in flexibility, cardio, and endurance. I am in the best shape of my life and feel better than ever and its all thanks to Tatiana. If you've ever considered personal training but weren't sure if it was right for you and your body, YOU HAVE TO CALL TATIANA! I promise you will not regret it!

I had the pleasure of hiring Diamond a fitness for my personal training over a period of 7 months. I was not in a very good shape when I started training with him. At age 61, I was worried that I would not be able to exercise through my joint aches and pains. Alex is both knowledgeable and personable. He started our workouts slowly, we built strength in key muscle groups and slowly increased in intensity. Alex challenged me at every workout, yet he remained insightful to my experience and adjusted the workout as needed. After every session, I felt better than when I started. Some days I did not think I could make it though and hour and I always left with energy and a sense of accomplishment. Alex carefully planned each workout, he kept me busy so that the hour passed quickly. My joint pain gradually improved as my muscles got stronger. A few months prior to hiring Diamond Fitness ( Alex), I was evaluated by a University based rheumatologist who wanted to start me on a complicated medication. Instead, I chose to try exercise, it worked. I am now stronger, more confident and sleep better. I highly recommend Diamond Fitness ( Alex), he has formal education to support his profession with degrees in exercise and nutrition. He practices what he preaches and is an excellent condition to himself. He will also become a friend. He has a personal touch, and a great sense of humor. - Susan Saxon

Training with Conner has changed my Life! I am able to keep up with my 2 sons, a 17 year old & a 35 year old, on the Raquetball ball court and mountain biking, on some of the most daunting, blue & black trails, in the southeast! And I am 53!!! Connor B Rocks!!! If you are even thinking about getting into better shape and you live in the Brandon Riverview or Tampa area, you should take him up on his free trial workout! He will get done, in 45 mins., what would take someone on their own, probably 2 plus hrs. That’s what I like the most, as I have a very demanding sales management position and I do not have a lot of free time. I go in, get in a Great workout, head to work to start my day, in a much better mind set. Training with Conner 3 times a week has also improved my work life / Sales Numbers, as well!!! Highly Recommend !!!!

I was a beginner (adult swimmer), and Veronica patiently taught me the swimming techniques to help me get to the level of swimming with ease in a matter of weeks. She sends you feedback by video recordings of the swim, and goes over the things that could be improved upon with more practice. Overall, she is a great trainer to work with and her training is of great value.

Claudio, aka, “Big C”, is one of the most knowledgeable personal trainers I have ever come across in my 34 years of lifting and training. His understanding of physiology and how to get the most out of different body types and what to do for different body types, incorporating Training and nutrition is on a level high above the vast majority of personal trainers out there. He’s a blast to work out with and he will make the most of your “time” by pushing you to get the most out of your ability, while respecting various physical limitations that may arise on any given day when you’re in your 50s as I am. :-) Just tell him what you were trying to achieve and he can help you make it happen ...Without wasting your time or money!

Finally I’m seeing results. I’ve tried working out on my own for years. No matter what I would try I would never see results. I’ve been with Tracy for 3 weeks and I’m seeing very obvious results. She’s very knowledgeable, explains every movement and is sure to include stretching. I’m very excited for what’s to come. There’s nothing like one on one training. Look no further.

I have been Debbie's client for many years and I look forward to my workouts now as much as I did the first day.I have two 90 minute sessions a week during which Debbie provides a workout tailored to my needs, including aerobic exercise (usually 400 calories a session) strength training, balance, floor exercises etc. She is constantly doing research to provide new and challanging workouts every session. I have had a broken hip, shoulder, kneecap and could be looking at a knee replacement in the future. Debbie has provided my rehab for all these injuries and pushed me so that I regained 100% function after every injury. Debbie's gym has state of the art equipment and is constantly being upgraded when new machines become available, such as the Power Plate. At 79 years of age I cannot imagine my life without Debbie and look forward to many more years with her. She is truly "the best"! Roberta Spack

I started training with Ryan to lose some weight and get more comfortable with weight training. He's not like any trainer I've ever had before. We don't move from machine to machine. He isn't always on his phone and ignoring me. He always has me doing something new and learning new exercises. He's never on his phone and always is by my side coaching me.

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.

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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
