"Dwight is a most phenomenal trainer! I've been working out and training with private Trainers for over 30 years. I've come to really value individuals who week by week month by month year to year raise me to a new level of Health and Fitness. Over the last three years since he became my trainer, at age 59, he has reshaped my body like no one ever did. He has the knowledge and capability to train people with all body types from slim, toned ladies to bodybuilders, varying fitness goals, all ages, and with chronic injuries from years of sports. My small boned "ballerina" body is more cut and toned than it ever been. Dwight's incredible knowledge, expertise, professionalism and dedication is incomparable. Plus, he is so much fun to train with as he is very very smart and interesting! R B"

"This service has given me the ability to have a "personal" trainer that has put together a plan just for me. A plan that we can work through and adjust as needed. It has given me the ability to have a "trainer" yet workout on my own schedule. The variety and the time considerate jam packed workout keeps me interested and looking forward to the next one. The ability to view a video on how to correctly perform the exercise along with being able to message my trainer are by far some of the most valuable components of this app! Enjoying it and thankful to have been introduced to it."

"When I was searching for a personal trainer in my area I discovered Craig. I am pleased to say that after just a few days working with him he showed me his dedication and thrive to be my personal trainer. I’ve noticed immediate results and he is very good about challenging you to beat your current best records. After three months, I noticed upper body strength for the first time in my life (I have never been able to do push ups before now). And his attention to my formerly fractured arm he helped get me past it (I now have range of motion I haven’t had in years). He checks up on you after doctor’s appointments to find out their advice so that he can change your workout to be safe accordingly. He listens to you when you tell him something doesn’t feel right, hurts, or is stressing; and he changes the game plan while still achieving the end goal. He is a hard working trainer that knows how to push you hard, but not over the edge. Incredible, trainer, coach, and human being. He has three characteristics that make him the best personal trainer. They are knowledge, attitude and character. Regarding Knowledge: Craig takes the time to assess your strengths and weaknesses. He’s an expert in how the body works, so the exercises he has me do always make sense for my goals. We’re always doing something different. You will see results and you won’t be disappointed. But the awesome part is he keeps you motivated. He believes in you when you don’t think you can and he let’s you know it. He handles everything you throw at him with incredible grace and optimism. ( I know because I’ve thrown it all, from injured shoulder, knee, foot, abdomen, and pulled muscles). He just doesn’t give up on you. And his optimistic daily notes help keep you focused on the goal. Craig’s attitude and energy are similarly fantastic. It’s contagious. He has a motivating effect which is exactly what you want in a trainer. Craig also knows the right things to say to keep you moving and trying your hardest. It is positive reinforcement at its best. The result is a workout with a far higher out put than you could get on your own. Craig inside (character) is a solid as his outside. He believes that each of us have limitless potential. This too is motivating, and up-lifting. It makes for great coaching. Contrast that to some trainers/coaches/managers, etc. Who try to motivate by breaking you down. Craig is the opposite of that. Bonus: Craig keeps in regular contact between sessions with texts/emails or phone calls to keep you motivated and on track. He is constantly reminding me to combine my diet with my workout. As he says, you cannot out exercise a bad diet. And he genuinely tries to follow up and make sure you are making good choices at meal times. Finally, If you are looking to invest in your good health, look no further than Craig. I’ve never exercised harder, but he makes each workout unique. Not only is he a great trainer, he’s an even better person. I’m PROUD to say, I’ve lost 30 pounds with Craig’s professional training and compassionate support and I live a much healthier life style. Thank You Craig, Nadine Colley"

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.
