"Summer is an outstanding trainer! I had reached the point to where I knew I needed that extra push and she was just the right person for the job. My initial contact was through this service and she was very engaged from the beginning to answer any questions I had. I was able to meet with her within a few days where I was able to receive my initial consult and tour her gym. She is extremely encouraging and pushes you out of your comfort zone. The workouts are very diverse so you're not getting bored with same routines. I am very thankful to have her as a trainer!"

"I have purchased 3 - ten visit session so far with Age Advantage Fitness and I don't see myself ending this relationship with Mark as my trainer any time soon. Mark puts a great deal of work, planning and attention into every session. He is well planned and explains every exercise, the proper way to do the exercise, and the benefits. The thing I enjoy most about my program is that it is alway changing and seldom have I ever done the same exercise twice. This keeps the muscles "thinking, and not adapting," to the routine which means I gain more benefit from each session quickly. At most gyms you hire a 20 something year old trainer who shows their ability to count reps for you. I don't need someone to count for me, I enjoy my one on one session with Mark, in the privacy of his fitness studio and the rapport we have developed through my accomplishments. Mark's fitness studio is top notch and can rank with the best of any gym in town. Mark has all the needed equipment that is well kept, and cleaned after every client. I am a 55 year old corporate executive who doesn't have time for the gym scene, yet through my sessions with Mark, I have improved upon my energy, flexibility, dropped 2 pants sizes, and feel great! I look forward to every session. Thank you Mark, I highly recommend Mark as a trainer and Coach."

"Before signing up for personal training sessions with Adam I participated in classes he taught at a local running/sports company. I enjoyed the classes then and saw how he gave personal attention to each person and modified their sessions based on their fitness level. I was one of those individuals. When I saw he was doing the personal training sessions I wanted to sign up because I knew he would push me to work out harder without making me feel bad because I am pretty uncoordinated. He is a great trainer. "

"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"

"I had a great experience working with Jolie! She is extremely professional and knows what she's talking about! I had a shoulder injury and she was able to customize the exercises that would best help me to get my strength back. Jolie helped me so much at the gym to gain confidence working with weights and using correct techniques, I'm so happy with my results!"

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.
