"Being an out of shape, newly single, 22 year old woman, I did not want to join a regular gym or fitness club because I did not like my body and i would have to work out in front of other girls my age who look good in yoga pants. Lol. I have Jason 3 times a week as my personal trainer and over the last 7 weeks i have gone from 157lbs to 128lbs and Loved how he has made me do it. Jason seems to be a professional in nearly every sport as he has trained me in MMA, Roller Skating, Tennis, Soccer, Swimming, Running, Frisbee, Kick Boxing and even knife throwing this last week. Each thing we do seems to somehow work an area of my body that i didnt even know could be worked and its been soo much fun learning new sports and getting better at the ones i already knew how to do. Next week we start training for an obstacle course event thats similar to American Ninja Warrior! Oh, an extra bonus for you ladies, it's really easy to keep your eyes on the instructor and to pay complete and total attention to everything he does because he is fine as ... Bridgette Foley KC MO"

"Hands down, best value in Richmond. For less than the price of some gym memberships I get intense, small group training 6 days a week. The gains are real. I love starting my day with a C.O.T. workout because it puts me in the right frame of mind to take anything else on. Michael is doing an outstanding job. "

"Tony is an outstanding trainer! I came to him wanting to drop my gut and gain the muscle mass any guy wants to achieve. After meeting and seeing what I am capable of, he set me up with a great workout that combined the cardio and weight training I need to complete my goals. He's willing to help and listen to your needs and goals as long as you put forth the effort and discipline he's expecting. I would recommend him to anyone looking to get in shape."

"The yoga sessions that I have done with Rebecca have been great! She has been leading me in "Broga," which is a great total body workout and a more holistic exercise than the jogging and weightlifting I am accustom to. She's very easy to work with and excellent at motivating and encouraging. I can tell that Rebecca is passionate and committed to helping her clients have the best health experience possible to improve their quality of life. I have only positive things to say. "

"I've being working with Ken for the past three months and would very highly recommend him as a personal trainer. Right off the bat, Ken assessed my biggest weakness (balance) and over the span of a few weeks patiently built up my balance so that I was in a good position to move into more challenging exercises. Now, he's working with me in all my goofy awkwardness to make sure that I develop the correct technique while still getting a good sweaty workout. Ken also asks questions and listens. It's very clear he's aware of my fitness goals and completely supports them. He'll keep me on track without being intrusive (or judgmental) by asking important questions like "Did you do cardio today?" and "How's your food intake been?" More importantly, he's consistent with asking me how I feel every session and then modifies the workout to make sure I don't overtax any muscle groups or injure myself. And Guess what! I'm seeing amazing results! Better yet - people are noticing!! Since I starting working with Ken, my body fat has decreased by 4.73% and I've dropped 30 pounds! ... Watch out Little Black Dress - here I come :)"

"Shari choreographed our wedding dance, and was a wonderful teacher. We had a great time every lesson. It was also a welcomed break from all the stress of wedding planning. We would highly recommend her! She made two first-time dancers look and feel like pros."

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.
