"I have only been working with Stephanie for a couple months now, but I couldn’t be happier with the results so far! I had always stayed active up until after high school, and I found myself constantly making excuse after excuse not to go to the gym or to change my eating habits. I finally realized that I had to have a lifestyle change and I could not be more thankful that Stephanie has helped to make that happen for me. Not only is Stephanie a well-educated trainer, she is also encouraging, patient and truly cares about her clients. The thought of going to the gym and doing weights used to terrify me as I did not have a whole lot of confidence or knowledge, but Stephanie made the time to thoroughly explain things and to make sure I truly understood. I could not imagine where I would be today had I not joined Shape up with Steph, she has changed my life! This is Stephanie’s passion and I guarantee you will be in good hands! I can’t wait to see what this program has in store for me in the future!"

"For two summers in a row, Nate trained me along with a group of my friends. It was the most effective and fun training program of my life. That's saying something. I have previously had the privilege of working out under the proverbial lash of the Missouri Tigers Wrestling coaches and one of the Kansas City Royals Strength and Conditioning coaches for weeks at a time. Of course, several decades had passed between those workouts and the ones I did with Nate, so I was not in comparable shape to start with. Even so, Nate was able to adapt our workouts midsesession to fit the level of each member of our group, pushing us to our maximum potential with ecouragement where before I had only heard curses. It only took a few weeks for my body to change drastically. By the end, I was back to where I was in high school, only bigger and stronger. The only complaint that I can summon to mind is that we always had to train in the park, as everyone in the group belonged to a different gym. Now that Nate has moved up in the world, with proper facilities and equipment, I can't imagine a trainer that I would rather work out with."

"I had the biggest fight of my life to date and it was my first time going 10 rds. I was worried about my endurance and just being able to endure fighting 10 rds. With a formal heavyweight champion, I went to Miles to prepare me for the bout, Miles used various exercises inductive to boxing and gave me great insite on why we're doing what we're doing. Miles kept it fun but pushed me when I needed it. I had my fight Saturday August 8th and won easily. Felt like I could fight two 10 rd fights back to back. I'm very thankful! I highly recommend Miles for your training goals. -Charles Ellis"

"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."

"Bekka is such a great trainer. She makes you look and feel genuinely confident/enthusiastic about working out. I always spend the week looking forward to her training sessions. She knows exactly how to tackle the track right for you and makes goals specific and individualized. You have so much fun because she is so easy to talk to that the only fault is that sometimes you get distracted by the great conversation. When you workout with Bekka, you're in good hands. "

"This lady is kind, passionate and legit. If you are looking for someone to help guide you on your strength and fitness journey I would highly recommend working with Kate. She cares about your fitness goals and pushes you beyond them. She sets the bar high and helps you reach it. One of my favorite things about her is she never makes me feel stupid. If there's something I don't know she graciously shows me the way. I am forever grateful that I get the chance to be challenged and led by this woman. Thanks Kate!!"

"The first time I met Cindy I knew it was going to be a life changing experience. She shared her fitness journey and her belief that fitness can and should be fun. The class that followed was a blast and I was hooked. I have seen her working with the most humble beginner, college athlete, young, old, healthy, not so healthy due to injury or chronic disease and she is always the same-AMAZING! One on one or in group settings, she creates workouts that challenge, not overwhelm. She strives to not only improve what a person expects when going to a trainer like strength or endurance, but also balance, posture, muscle imbalance, and coordination. Professionally and personally Cindy is innovative, upbeat, encouraging, and all around WONDERFUL!!! Her workouts have changed my body and improved my quality of life. This former couch potato never knew working your @&$ off could be this much FUN! "

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.
