"About five years ago I sought out the help of Sam Ziserson for problems I was having with hip and leg pain. Frankly, as a woman in my mid-fifties , I was worried that I was experiencing the inevitable aches and pains of middle age. Sam worked with me, focusing on my specific issues and I am very happy to report, I no longer experience any of the pain I once felt. I am stronger, and happier knowing that my work with Sam prepares me for a healthier future. Sam brings a sensitivity to training that I think is probably pretty rare. His is a whole person approach. He always meets me where I am, but is not afraid to push me just that little bit more to help me achieve real fitness. I would not consider working with any other trainer. After all, how many women my age can say that their twenty year old daughters have complemented them on how they look in a swim suit! One piece of course!"

"I’ve had several personal trainers over the years, by far Geoff has been hands down the best trainer I have ever had. He personalized each session to help me achieve my goals. He also listened to what I wanted and helped me create a clean eating plan. I’ve been working with him for 4 months and I’ve seen significant changes with my body."

"I had always been a fit person who ran, biked, lifted weights and in general stayed healthy and active. After the birth of my 3rd child I found myself with less time than ever running a family and my own small business and the baby weight was just not coming off in the minimal time I had to devote to my fitness in the chaos of life. I hired Jeanne Penton to help me get 3 hours of workout out of an hour of time and found out how much I did not know about training. Jeanne was supportive, encouraging, compassionate, and firm when I needed it. Her coaching led me to achieve my goals and continue to learn even more to help me live the most balanced and centered life possible, in spite of the chaos of life. I truly do not know where I would be had she not come into my life at just the right time. She has helped me to stay present, mindful, and appreciative even when things are not right… which is always, let’s get real. 8 years later I still consider her a leader among the few people who have had the most positive influence in my life. Jeanne has a way of reaching individuals and tailoring solutions for real life. Her intuitive understanding of people and great knowledge of Wellness principles can benefit anyone in any age or stage of life. I have taken her classes, benefited from hearing her speak, and grown from the wisdom she has shared in a variety of areas. She is so much more than a trainer, she is a true Life Coach in every sense of the word. I could not recommend her more highly. Thank you Jeanne, for being who you are and sharing your skills and compassion with me."

"I have been working out with Jake for 8 months & he has far exceeded my expectations. For a couple years I have had a chronic illness that kept me mostly bedridden. Jake took this into account, worked with me & my situation & customized a program just for me. I can honestly say that I am more strong & fit now than before the illness. Jake gets all the credit! He is an extremely professional, knowledgeable, caring person. Jake has a passion for his job & always gives more than 100%. So, if you are looking for a personal trainer to help get you fit, there is no one better than Jake!"

"I have been working with Ben for just under a month now. The results so far are amazing. The first two weeks were really tough to get back into being so active but Ben was patient and adjusted workouts on the fly to fit my needs. I've been progressively feeing stronger and have had higher energy levels and stamina throughout the day. Overall my experience has been great and I would recommend Ben to anyone looking for a personal trainer"

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.
