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

I've worked with a number of trainers over the years and can say unequivocally that Sean is the cream of the crop. His knowledge about the body and it's needs coupled with an innate teaching ability have taken me to a fitness level l never thought possible. He also possesses a winning personality which makes me want to train with him as often as is possible. Those of us who train with Sean have found a gem!

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!

Chris is awesome. He has gone out of his way to accommodate my ridiculous schedule as a single parent. He personalizes each workout, as well as a nutrition plan, and follows up to make sure it's something you are able to stick with. I have never worked with a personal trainer before, and I'm probably not the easiest client, but Chris is approachable and friendly and he actually listens. Signing up for a personal trainer was daunting to me, because I thought someone was going to bark orders at me, but Chris is the exact opposite. I appreciate his calm demeanor, and he is able to push me further in my workouts without treating me like an Army recruit. That might work for some people, but it definitely would've prevented me from coming back. I planned on learning just a few techniques to apply at home, and only intended on working with Chris for a week, but his level of motivation has made me change my mind, and I'm working with him once a week now to stay on task with my goals. Highly recommend him, and if the other trainers at Jones4Fitness are anything like him, don't hesitate to give them a chance.

I've been working with Jaime for almost a year. I didn't need to lose weight, but pretty much just needed to get in shape, get stronger and aim for that "toned" look that so many women are looking for. I've put on a couple pounds (again, I was too skinny, thats what I was looking for) of muscle. What is great about Jaime is that he listens to what you're looking for. So many trainers don't and assume everyone wants to lose weight. I keep asking to go heavier and heavier with the weights. He reigns me in so I don't hurt myself, but I'm now squatting 70 lbs, rowing 35 lbs, 35 lbs on each arm on chest presses (1 set only), and can do 20 pushups without cheating/assistance. For a little weakling, that a year ago I struggled with using 10 pound weights...I'm quite proud of what I can do now! My fiance has noticed my new "toned" look and comments on it all the time! :) Ladies, you want that toned look? Lift as heavy as you can. I am definitely not big, just getting tighter, stronger looking arms and legs. When you sign up with Jaime he gives you a heart rate monitor that you wear every time you workout. It helps to see how many calories you burned, average heart rate, and the time spent on the workout. He also gives you access to a personal online FitLog which you fill in with the info from your heart rate monitor and tracks your weekly progress. You can see where you met your weekly goals..and the weeks where you didn't. Oops. :) Jaime is helpful in that I was topping out on what I could do without a weight bench and he helped in finding me a good weight bench. He also went to Dick's for me and got me the 35 lb weights so I didn't have to cart them out of the store myself. And no, he's not a weirdo trainer trying to pick up on women. That was my biggest fear in using a personal trainer. He's just a nice guy trying to help his clients! He'll do it for his male clients too! I've had a good experience with Jaime. What I like best is that he listens to what you want and will customize your workouts to what you are asking for so you can work on your personal goals!

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!

True definition of a trainer!!!! I decided to do the online training program. The trainer app she uses is the best. Coach Gee is always available to answer questions, no matter how big or small. The dedication she has to her clients is very evident. Thanks to her vast knowledge of nutrition, I am more aware of my ability to become a healthier me. One of the best investments in myself I have ever made!

I have trained with Emmanuel for the past 2 years. I cycled through a number of trainers before training with Emmanuel. He is college educated, professional, and respectful of my time. He caters his workouts to your individual needs and adjusts exercises based on aliments or preferences. He has a good sense of humor and is pleasant to be around. I would recommend Emmanuel Kargbo to anyone looking for a good consistent trainer. He is a former football player and sprinter, so he is perfect for ex-athletes.

We have done about 10 workouts, going three times a week over the last two weeks with Cornelius. My husband and I work out at the same time and Cornelius keeps us working very hard simultaneously. We leave feeling like we each got a great/hard workout. He is very sensitive to any injuries and helps to strengthen the problem areas through specific exercises. Also, he has accommodated any schedule changes. Most importantly, we already see results in a short time through food and exercise with Cornelius. We look forward to our workouts!

I recommend Jenise 100%. She is a pro and you feel like your money is well spent because she is serious about her job and has the exercise routine all figure out before the session starts. she does not improvise and I can tell she has good experience which, for me, means I can trust her judgment on exercise choices. I appreciate that she is always on time and will tell (and show you) when you are making some mistakes with the exercise (some trainers don´t do this! so for me this a huge plus). I take 2 classes a week because of schedule possibilities but I think that, if you can afford it, 3 is the ideal number.

I signed up with Timothy to tone and strengthen my body. After the second week, with proper diet and Timothy's workout sessions I noticed that my jeans were not as tight. Timothy gently pushes you just enough to get you past that point when you think you can do anymore, without frustration like some trainers do. He is very reasonable, balanced and insightful. I'm excited to know that I can finally achieve the body that I have envisioned for myself. with Timothy's support.

I went through the process of reaching out 6 different personal trainers, and ultimately selected Cass Fitness because of their responsiveness, value, the fact that they come to my building's gym, and how much I enjoyed my first session. I'm only two workouts into my relationship with Cass Fitness, but I would highly recommend them so far.

I've been training with Nate several times a week for over 5 years, and I couldn't be more pleased with my progress, fitness level (strength, duration, flexibility), and the ongoing challenge and diversity of workouts -- they're never boring and incorporate strength, stability and core, time under tension, and functional training for every part of my body. In addition, Nate's a nice guy with a great sense of humor, so the workouts are tough but enjoyable. After his initial assessment, he continued to take the time to get know me individually and has a vested interest in my health, well being, strengths, and weaknesses (he enjoys identifying and having me work on my weaknesses!). Nate works hard with each of his clients and he customizes each workout for their individual needs and goals. In the 5+ years I've trained with him, Nate has never been late or missed a workout -- even in snowstorms! When I need to change a training appointment, Nate works very hard to find a time that is mutually beneficial. Finding the right personal trainer that had the proper knowledge, experience, equipment, interpersonal skills, and motivation to align with mine was tough; and I couldn't be happier to have found Nate. My investment in training with him has been more than worth it: I'm in great physical shape, my doctor asks if I've found the fountain of youth, and I've made a good friend in the process.

The facility is perfect for me from distance to privacy. It allows me to have the exclusive 1-on-1 training with my trainer without distraction that other Gyms don’t have. Ken is absolutely awesome: knowledgeable, attentive, patient, and very motivational. His sessions are well prepared, challenged, and yet never intimidating. Ken understood my strength pretty well, and allow me to start at my own space, but still challenging me at the same time. We set our goal pretty realistic, and can’t wait to see the real results. Thanks Ken.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
