"Adam has been, by far, the best personal trainer I have ever worked with. He listened to my personal goals and history and has worked with me to achieve my goals in a way that is healthiest for me. Adam’s workouts are always challenging but never anything I cannot handle with hard work and perseverance. Working with Adam I finally feel strong, confident, and empowered. I have finally begun to appreciate all my body can do as opposed to criticizing it for what I’ve always seen as perceived flaws. I would (and often do) recommend Adam to anyone who is looking to work with a personal trainer and learn how strong and capable they truly are."

"Kevin O'Leary has been my trainer for 18 months. He is very professional and makes the training sessions fun. I was out of shape and suffered from joint pain in my shoulder and hip. My joint pain has been greatly reduced and my flexibility and stamina are greatly improved. I would highly recommend Kevin for rehab, general fitness or sports training!"

"I have always worked out on my own utilizing the best "Bro" science and I have experienced limited results, never hitting my weight or strength goals. Out of frustration I decided to try a Professional Trainer, what could it hurt? I am truly surprised how effective Tyler has been in creating a program designed to improve my athletic performance and help me surpass my goals. My overall strength, explosiveness and cardio have improved beyond what I thought possible. My only regret is I waited until I was 54 before I took the plunge to invest in a Professional Trainer. If you are in a rut, frustrated with your progress, or want to reach new heights at any level of sport, Tyler can help you get there. Emerge Fitness and their staff make it easy for you to focus on your work by creating a clean professional welcoming environment. All the best! Todd"

"My boyfriend and I started working out with Mark a couple of weeks ago and so far the experience has been nothing short of AMAZING! I have had body image and self esteem issues for years and my boyfriend has multiple injury/health-related issues to work around. Mark has taken all of this completely in stride as he takes each of our needs and goals into account and tailors not only each workout but also his approach to fit us both. We're working towards a pretty significant weight-loss goal but Mark reminds us regularly to celebrate even the smallest successes, plan for and accept setbacks, and focus on making long-term sustainable lifestyle changes. My favorite part is how much fun we have when we're working out with Mark! He definitely pushes us to challenge ourselves, but we laugh and have a good time doing it, which is really important for us as it helps us stay motivated. Also, don't be discouraged about the fact that Mark says he specializes in 40+ fitness. Many of his clients are in fact 40+, but my boyfriend and I are both in our late 20s so he'll help anyone that wants that support!"

"I am 55 years old and was looking to lose some weight, but more importantly to build strength to meet the challenges I will be facing in the aging process. I had been told that you need to build this strength so that you are more agile and develop bone strength. I met Theresa, my fitness trainer, through my principal. Theresa began to do a small group boot camp with teachers. I was the oldest teacher and within a few weeks I was able to do many of the exercises that the younger teachers were doing. Each week is a new workout, still using some of the same exercises being repeated. My strength is fantastic and I have lost several inches in the 5 months, 2 x a week that I have been meeting with Theresa. She is so knowledgeable with health tips and the correct way to do the exercises that every week we have new questions and she knows the answers. I would recommend Theresa to anyone who is looking to become healthier and stronger. It is an investment in you for your future, no matter how old you are! Joann C."

"Julie Edstrom is a great fitness trainer! She's no joke and is hardcore. I've only seen her three times (so far) but I lover her style of training. She's preparing me for the police academy and her military experience has really helped in that aspect. I would recommend her to anyone!"

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.
