"I wanted to write you about my AMAZING experience that I have at Fitness Stop in Falls Church, Virginia. I have been training with them since February and I can’t believe what a transformation it has made, both physically and mentally. I continuously receive compliments about my weight loss which consequently has lead to my self esteem soaring. I owe all this to the trainers at Fitness Stop's great attitude, professionalism, and caring for their clients. My goals are steadily being met. I feel so much lighter and stronger than I have in a long time. I recommend Fitness Stop to anyone of any age group who is trying to lose weight, regardless the amount, and to those who just need get physically stronger to be at their healthiest. Take my word, it is worth it. You are worth it. Thank You, Sara Tabatabaei "

"Anthony is my Muy Thai and conditioning trainer. He’s been exceptional in providing a safe space to learn. He’s strict when he needs to be a nice when he doesn’t (which isn’t often for a complainer like me). I have been able to watch him alter his teaching styles to match the personalities of his clients. He’s so approachable and really makes me love the work I put in when I’m with him. If you’re serious about your health, use him. He’s certified in everything and meets you at your level and pushes you to do more than you realize your body can do."

"As a busy mom and someone who values time efficiency and safety, this workout is truly PERFECT. Its pretty incredible that I can get only 2 workouts in a week and get better results than I did when I was going to the gym on my own 5 days a week. I have been doing this workout for 5 years now and it has completely changed my body composition, helped me get stronger & leaner, helped me recover from injury AND I was even able to do this workout throughout my entire pregnancy and postpartum journey. I love TPW and the trainers are exceptional. This workout has truly changed my life."

"Very knowledgeable and great approach to beginning the acquisition of a work out routine for some one new to the lifestyle change. Slow and steady. Julian is nice at the same time I did not feel he would go easy with me and made sure I pushed myself and did not allow me to give up too early. Super flexible with his schedule and accommodating my crazy scheduling needs. Really patient with me and supportive as I felt dorky trying to figure out the right body positions and movements he was having me do to target and optimize the exercise, I felt like a spazz but Julian never stopped encouraging me. Great experience ! Hire him!"

"I have been working out with two of the trainers of Svetness and I am extremely happy. The trainers listen to you and ask proper questions before going ahead and starting without getting to know what you really need to achieve. The follow up is amazing and they keep me mentally motivated."

"Elin and Kris are great. I started about only 2 months ago and the results I have seen have the best I have ever had ever. I have been through countless trainers and group classes and the amount of attention they give and the way they are able to gradually work your entire body out without sacrificing quality is the best I have ever seen. It is an experience you have to go through with patience to believe. Very hard to explain as the results are unreal. Very unique methodology. To date, they have exceeded my expectations, and look forward to more sessions as they have sold me not only on their methods, but more importantly on the lifestyle. Lastly I will say, Elin is impeccable in terms of following up. He really cares about his clients. Kris is the best trainer I have ever had as he genuinely cares about you and shows up with a smile day in and day out. He was so great, I referred him to my future sister in law before her big day! I can't speak highly enough about these guys. They are the real deal!"

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.
