"Hector helped me get ready for a wedding. He challenged me and pushed me outside my comfort zone (running) to incorporate more weight training. He also explained how that would help improve my running and be better for me as a whole."

"I have been training with Johnny for six months now. It has been an awesome experience! I had been away from training and lifting for many years. Johnny got be back into the groove again! He has taken an over weight, 49 year old mess and delivered amazing results. I have muscle, definition, and have greatly improved my overall strength. Johnny is extremely knowledgeable in the human anatomy. He has a well mapped out plan detailed uniquely for each clients goals. For me, he combines power/strength development with muscle development through hypertrophy training. Trust me, IT WORKS! I am now hooked! My goal was to work with Johnny for 3 - 4 months. Well, he is so good I am in it for the long haul! I train with Johnny 3 days a week and 1 -2 days on my own. He got me to believe in myself again! I can physically see that I can still make major changes in muscle development and improve my overall physique. I highly recommend Johnny! He is not intimidating at all... he makes you feel comfortable and explains each exercise and routine thoroughly. Not to mention, he is just an overall great guy! Thanks Man! Your making a difference in my life! "

"I have been working out with Trent for the past 2 months, 3 times/week. Let me just put it this way, Trent showed up to train me in a walking boot and crutches and I still ended up having a killer session. Don't worry about his commitment, worry about yours! Because he's 100% in from day 1. He knows how to push you, and cross those imaginary limits you've created in your head. Let's just say there are somethings I wasn't able to do, that now I easily can. If you're serious about a transformation, he is your guy. Easy to work with, flexible, good sense of humor but doesn't joke around when it comes to working out. I have a long term goal with him, and happy to say that I'm on the right track after 2 months of working out with him. "

"Nikolas has been one of the best trainers I’ve ever worked with. Not only is he professional, he genuinely cares about his clients and does whatever he can do get his client to where they want to be. Motivating someone is something that I believe a trainer must be able to do, and Niko for sure does that. He helped get to where I wanted to be and he helped me believe in myself. The results I’ve gotten working out with Niko for over a year has been amazing. Not only physically, but mentally too. Training with Niko has been life changing."

"I had Jamila come to my home to help jump start me again after I experienced plantar fasciitis. Being a fitness enthusiast all my life, I was feeling awful because the injury had caused me to gain 8 lbs. Her workouts make you sweat, and she got me back on track again!! She is punctual, sweet, personable, and most importantly, professional and knowledgeable! I would recommend Jamila for any person at any fitness level, as she tailors her workouts to fit your individual needs."

"I couldn't recommend Billy more as my trainer. I am extremely happy with my progress and the results of my rigorous training with Billy. Billy is very knowledgable about different exercise routines, and he will always switch things up, to make the workout more interesting and challenging but also fun. He has a bright personality, which makes the workout fun and exciting. He will also be your dietician and give you great tips on healthy meals and snack. I feel much stronger and healthier than ever before, and I am very excited to continue to work with Billy and surprise myself with the progress. Moreover, Billy naturally takes a personal interest in your wellbeing and progress, which is a great motivator. I am very happy to have chosen Billy as my trainer, and feel very fortunate. He is such a great person, friend and trainer with an amazing personality. I strongly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a trainer, for various personal goals from shedding some weight, to much more complex and long term."

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.
