Lori's approach is professional and flexible enough to meet my needs. The time I needed for training was early morning and she was able to accommodate this. Also a great advantage is having her come to my home! So far I have been getting stronger and more fit. The goals were to have easy access to routine workouts that would help me reach my fitness goals---Lori is a great part of making this happen.... Way to Go

It is unbelievable how much I’ve improved all around as not only an athlete but a person as well. Heather really gave me an immense confidence boost and really improved my vertical, endurance, and strength. Also, she was every flexible and always on time. That made training a lot easier for me because I am still in school, sports, and have a job. I will absolutely be sticking to her program and I can’t wait to grow and improve even more.

    September 5, 2011, the day that changed my life and Personal Trainer, Darin Starr was the one person that would guide me along my journey. I was interested in seeking a trainer the year before but the time was not right. A year later I revisited the idea, searched online, and came across Darin Starr’s site FiveStarrFitness.com. I read all the material about three times and watched his online videos. It was like Darin was talking right to me, hitting on all the areas in my life that needed changing from the diet, food preparation and workouts. I immediately emailed him my interest and within a half an hour I received a response. A Weight Watchers member since 2007, I had lost 25 pounds up until this point and knew I needed something extra. I needed someone to help guide and push me outside my comfort zone in both nutrition and an exercise program, someone to be accountable to, and someone that would be supportive and knowledgeable in my journey. This I found in Darin Starr during our first meeting and he has been guiding me for 15 months, and still going. Darin provides a personalized plan of action which includes varied workouts of interval training, cardio and weightlifting, and a personal meal plan. For me simple food swaps, eating salads, and changing to a six meal a day plan to keep the metabolism up have made all the difference. I now work out three times a week and Love powerlifting. (Lift the weights ladies!) I even won a Biggest Loser contest at work with Darin’s guidance losing 21.8 pounds in eight weeks keeping to my meal plans and upping the exercise regimens. At my one year mark I had lost 40 pounds and four clothes sizes! Including Weight Watchers that is a total of 65 pounds, yes! Knowledge, you bet! Right at my one year anniversary I had to have shoulder surgery for arthritis on the clavicle area (not an injury mind you). Darin added exercises for the shoulder and back areas to strengthen the area before my surgery date. Surgery went well and during recovery he adjusted my workouts to protect the area and we concentrated on other areas instead, legs, abs, etc. Physical Therapy went well and the therapist was impressed with Darin’s knowledge and what we accomplished prior to surgery. Darin would add an exercise back into the program only after I would ask the therapist’s approval which enhanced the recovery. Two months later I was released from physical therapy ahead of schedule to continue my home therapy, and we continued strengthening exercises in the gym. Three months later I am back to almost full strength, lifting again and released from my doctors care. Now I can resume a complete program to continue losing weight. Thanks Darin! It’s a pleasure to come into my weekly sessions excited to do my workouts with the guidance and support you have given me. You lift me up when I am weary, help me meet challenges (even ones I ask for- and rein me in when needed), and I so enjoy the camaraderie at the gym. Your attentiveness to answer questions at any time and keep in touch with your clients through various media is an awesome bonus to your program. I am so thankful I found Darin at that important moment in my life when I made a decision to change. It only took me 55 years to get to that point and now I know it is never too late to start changing one’s life. It has been an enlightening 15 month journey and the ride is not over. He has taught me much about the drive and determination I have within, what I can do when I don’t set limits upon myself, and that I can make a difference by the actions I take concerning my health and well-being. So if you are looking for a personal trainer in Asheville, NC or for On-Line Training, give Darin Starr of FiveStarrFitness.com a good look, he’s Awesome! Did I mention he has a great personality to go with that awesomeness? Pam A. 12/11/2012

    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.
