I worked with Brian for over 2 years. He's incredibly dedicated to his craft and really cares about his clients. Every time I asked him a question he replied in depth and usually providing the rational behind the way he designed my training. I really liked this! On a personal level, he's caring, polite and sensitive to my needs. This was important for me as I have a disability in my feet that was quite limiting to certain movements. Brian intelligently modified my training to work around it. I've never felt better! I can't recommend him enough. He really does care!

I love GForce! From Melissa and Theresa to Diane, the fabulous combat instructor to Wayne Wu....trainer extrodinaire! The GFX small group training has been a needed and fun addition to my workout routine. Wayne is so knowledgeable and well-qualified in the fitness training arena. He pushes you to reach your personal best, but is very cognizant of tailoring your workout to meet your needs and past injuries. I love my GFX training!

I have used Connie as a personal trainer for multiple times over the span of several years. Each time I have enjoyed her expertise as well as her attentiveness to my personal needs; not a cookie-cutter schedule. I intend on continuing to use her as my personal trainer as needed.

There are times in our busy lives we lose track of our health and our inability to stay fit. We do not realize how important eating healthy and staying in shape is, until we hit that dead end and our body and mind no longer can function properly. It is a certain person, who steps into your life and makes you conscious of how crucial it is to focus on yourself, mentally, physically, and emotionally. And for this, I owe it to one unique, extraordinary, intelligent, energized, determined, focused, young lady I have the privilege of calling my mentor, Amanda Fisher. Amanda approached me one day as she invited me to attend one of her boot camp sessions. There were no strings attached, she did not hassle me to attend, just asking to try it and see how I feel about it. Of course, my mind felt as though I really needed some change in my life, although my body wasn’t haven’t it. It almost seemed as though my brain was playing mind games with me. I literally had one excuse of not going after another. After much thought, I did attend her boot camp session. BEST decision ever! Amanda is an awesome trainer! Focusing on each individual’s physical capabilities. Gentle, but motivating you to push and take the next step. Her workout principles consist of stretching techniques, movement drills, and prevention of injuries. Amanda’s approach is to incorporate physical activity, conditioning that maintains performance, prevents injury and illness, and maintains a state of health and well-being within your life. It’s with sadness I say this; she is no longer in Arizona, but Michigan you have gained an asset, an Awesome Physical Trainer that is!!!!

Since April 2014, Chalene has been helping me to get back into exercising after having recovered from a broken wrist and a broken shoulder. She's very careful and watchful to make sure that I don't re-injure myself. I have appreciated her patience with me and she gave me follow up exercises that I can do at home to keep my strength & fitness level up. I feel stronger and healthier and my body is more toned, too. Thanks, Chalene!

The results I have achieved to date are largely due to Alyssa's passion about fitness. Her passion shows through the energy and enthusiasm she brings to every session. She works with the whole person -- mentally, emotionally and physically. Alyssa’s professionalism, extensive knowledge about nutrition and exercise as well as her enthusiastic commitment to her work provides the perfect scenario for success. Her nutrition advice and workouts were spot on and in 3 months I have lost 21 inches and 12 lbs. Her easy going, friendly personality creates a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. She makes each workout challenging, creative and most importantly, fun! She motivates me to push past my perceived limits to get results. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Alyssa is the trainer you want!

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.
