I have been attending private training sessions with Jessica for about 2 months now. Jessica goes above and beyond by providing nutritional advice depending on your goals and needs as well as personalized training sessions. Jessica is flexible when it comes to scheduling as well. I have back pain issues so I was a bit apprehensive at first. Jessica has been very aware of my needs and has been very careful to not let me over do it, but has pushed me to strengthen at the same time. I have already recommended her to my mother, I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Chris is an excellent trainer. He has helped us achieve our goal of setting up an in home training program (we hate the gym) and is helping us make that program sustainable. Chris was able to modify excercises for my bad knees which I appreciated. He is positive, very knowledgeable, punctual and personable. I highly recommend Chris.

I found Integrated Fitness and Jon Arnold in March of 2014. He has forever changed my life for the better in so many ways, not just by the fact that through his expertise, I have lost 139 pounds. I hold this man and the other people I have met through him at his studio in the highest esteem. Every person at Integrated Fitness, trainers and clients, have been kind, friendly and determined. Another client referred to Integrated Fitness as their "fit family," and that is how I feel about everyone I have met there. If you are considering this kind of focus on your health goals, take the plunge. You don't need all the answers...this is your starting point. Come as you are.

After a couple of years of googling racing plans and seeing only slight improvements I decided I needed help with my running. Around the same time I read an article about a local company called Eastern Shore Training. I decided to just go for it and email them. I'll admit I was a little intimidated at first but what I found was a running coach who took the time to know my running times, fine tune my daily workouts and educate me on how to be a better, faster, and stronger runner. Within the first 3 months I PR'd in the 5k, 10k, and Half Marathon which was a true testament of my training program. I am so happy that I emailed EST six months ago and know that training with them will bring many more PR's in 2015.

The service at Mobile Fitness is amazing! It is one of the best gyms I have ever had the pleasure of working out at. As a performer, I had very specific goals to achieve. Thanks to Jeff's help, I was able to work out twice a week with Ryan, one of the trainers on staff at Mobile Fitness. Ryan was a true motivator who made each and every workout one of a kind while still working towards my ultimate fitness goals. Overall, I would highly recommend Mobile Fitness to anyone as they have a wide range of trainers to meet any and everyone's fitness needs! I wouldn't change a thing.

I really enjoy working with Mike - he made it a priority right from the beginning to understand what my goal is and while training he explains how the exercises are working us toward that goal. He does a great job challenging and pushing me to do my best. I appreciate the variety of what we do since it keeps me focused and interested. He's also shared tips about nutrition, rest and recovery and how the exercises will benefit other areas of my life and overall health. Aside from personal training, Mike also does group classes which are fantastic (hard but effective!). I have really enjoyed the combination of PT and group workouts to help keep me on track.

Personal training sessions will start with a thorough evaluation of the physical fitness level of the client in conjunction with a consultation to find training goal, areas of interest and past fitness history. Once the exercise program has been implemented, careful monitoring of form, challenging variations of exercises and basic fitness knowledge can be the expectations of the clients. I have an extreme passion for exercise and helping people reach their goals, so let me help you get there.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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 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.
