"Matt has been training me 2x per week for the past 4 months. I went to Matt because I hadn't ever worked out in a gym on my own and wanted to learn how to build strength, lose body fat and create good habits. Matt is an excellent trainer, making sure that I'm using proper form, that I'm mentally and physically supported, encouraged and yet pushed hard. Every time I walk into the gym, I know that Matt will challenge me...but I also have a sense of accomplishment and pride because he doesn't set me up to fail. Slowly but surely I'm seeing the results and now I love going to the gym. The workouts are hard, but it feels so good! I just signed up for another 4 months under Matt's tutelage. I would highly recommend Matt as a trainer to anyone looking to get healthy through hard work!"

"Hector has been great! My wife has had three sessions so far and feels that he has her on the right track. He has worked with her on nutrition as well as doing interval strength training. I will have my wife review Hector after a month and see how she feels. So far, so good."

"I've spent the past few months training with Beth and have gotten so much out of a short time! She was amazing at pushing me to a point I haven't gone before and taught me so much about strength training, the importance of cardio, and also nutrition. She was extremely knowledgeable and you can tell she truly has a passion for what she does. I highly recommend her for all of your personal fitness goals!"

"We would give Gena 10 stars if we could. She is an amazing person. She has worked with us over the past few months and her training sessions are awesome. She mixes things up each week and writes out a plan for us to work on for the next week. She has helped us with our nutrition. She has written out meal plans for us as well as a grocery list. She even went to the store with us to get the food!!!"

"It is really exciting to work with a former Olympic Athlete. She is tough and expects her clients to show up on time, stay focused, and stick to the nutrition program at home. However, she is also very calm and has a fun attitude in the sessions, so by no means a drill sergeant. Her monthly program includes free nutrition coaching by text messaging. I found this to be really easy to follow along, and Cansu was inspirational when I was craving bad foods. We texted back and forth through the week and she did a great job suggesting foods to eat. I look at personal training as an investment in the future. It is a great feeling to have a coach with me while I am learning, but I also like that I will have this experience and knowledge forever. It is possible to learn many basics from online videos, but she really pays attention to how my body is growing and changing, and is always coming up with modifications to my routine. Highly recommended."

"I have hired Kristin as a personal trainer. In meeting with her I found she took the time to listen, rather than assume she knows what you need. I found her personality flexible... meaning as a trainer she can be assertive or passive based on your needs. Her prices are comparable to others I have reviewed. Her credentials are very impressive. I recommend her to anyone wanting to be more fit. Kristin does not just focus on the body but the nutritional and emotional aspect of your fitness."

"I have been exercising with the assistant of Mery Persico for about 2 months now and signing up for HardXross Personal Training was the best decision I could made! I have been exercising for the past 4-5 years on my own, but as many of people out there I never knew what to do and never could see any major difference in my body. Mery Persico is passionate about fitness and helping people to achieve a healthier lifestyle and become more active. She plans the workout according to your disponilility and goals and is she makes is very challenging. What I like about her exercise plan is that isn’t very long and they are very INTENSE! The exercises involves a lot of full body movements, it challenges my cardio and strength at the same time, toning my whole body. It’s a great variation for those who hates treadmill or any type of other cardio. She uses strategies when it comes to cardio on treadmill, bike, and etc to improve your fat burning. She also will add workout that you can do at home ( and they are hard!!) for those days you can’t make it to the gym. Aside from these, she of course prescribes you strength training. Mery is checking on me almost everyday to make sure you do the workout, she provides assistance and responds to any questions I might have. She takes in consideration the kinds of exercise I like to put my plan together, and she is always adjusting it according to my feedback. She has also helped with advice on nutrition, she isn’t a Nutritionist and isn’t prescribing a diet, but as many people out there I have doubts on what to eat and when to eat, and she has been awesome with that as well, for no extra cost. Mery Persico is an awesome Personal Trainer and I recommend her to anyone with any fitness goals. Thank you Mery for helping me to become a heavy and more active person! I can’t wait for the next exercises plans!"

"Aaron is well versed in coaching, motivating, and creating a comfortable workout environment, I admire his flexibility, creativity and tenacity. He utilizes multiple tools to create a wonderful cross training work out. I tend to focus a lot on cardio, and he has stressed the benefits of strength training and stretching. He is creative in finding opportunities to adjust the work out to fit your specific needs and offers careful adjustments and advice for peak performance. I've never seen him without a smile on his face. Aaron has broadened my horizons in the my fitness experience for the better and I am extremely thankful. He is fantastic and you would be extremely lucky to work with him. He has good throw back tunes as well, to support the workouts."

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.
