"I've been working out with Doug from ACS Personal for about 4 years . I had tried many different gyms and trainers prior to that unsuccessfully. Within 90 days of working with Doug I had drastically changed my physique. I was hooked! In addition to the training, Doug taught me about the importance of nutrition and how to use food to achieve my fitness goals faster and more efficiently."

"Because of the exercise sessions and help from Dennis, I am a 73 year old woman who can lead a very active and productive life and feel totally secure in my mobility and stability. Approximately 2 years ago I had been working with Dennis on my range of motion, the pains in my arms and shoulders and general stability. Then I was diagnoses with cancer and went through 18 months of cancer testing and treatments before I was in remission. Without that time with Dennis prior to my diagnosis I would have had a very difficult, if not impossible, time having the cancer treatments I needed which included raising my arms above my head and having the physical strength to get to and through all the chemo and radiation therapies. Following this physical challenge and the loss of my strength and muscles I couldn't do much more than get from my bed to a chair and was very insecure in walking without assistance. So, I started working with Dennis again. Now almost a year later he has helped me regain that strength as well as the range of motion and general stability needed for a full life. I can recommend him very highly to anyone willing to take the time and do as he recommends to improve your quality of life. He listens to your wants and needs and designs a program just for you. He is a very compassionate and caring man and will work with you to accomplish whatever your physical goals are. If he can help an "old lady" like me, he can help anyone (haha.) "

"I have been working with Damon for a couple of weeks now and we will have much more work to do due to my needs. Damon is a very thoughtful, experienced, empathetic and effective professional. In 1 hour he gives me a more effective workout than my 1.5 hrs of home based exercises I received from my physical therapist. He has the right mix of caution yet pushing your body as necessary. He even goes the extra mile to contact me later in the day or the next day to see how my body is reacting to the training. I have already felt improvement and have no doubts they will continue as we work together. I've had chronic pain since about 1998 and I've had 3 complex back surgeries. I've worked with many physical therapists but no personal trainers. Damon is one of the best, if not the best, physical improvement trainers I've worked with. I would absolutely highly recommend him."

"I started on a journey to get healthy and knew I needed to go to a personal trainer to help me because I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I was a ball of nerves when I first met Preston but he made me feel at ease quickly and I knew he would be the right fit for what I needed. He never makes me feel stupid or like I can't do something, he is encouraging and supportive, very knowledgeable and I leave each session feeling empowered and stronger. I can't sing his praises enough. I know with his help I will accomplish exactly what I set out to do."

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.
