"I started going to Jayd for personal training once a week about a month ago. I had previously been going to Title and doing power hour multiple times a week plus eating well for many months. Since starting with Jayd I can see MUCH more differences in my body. Working with her has pushed whatever barrier was keeping me from the results I wanted. Checking in on Trainerize makes me feel accountable for what I'm eating and how much I'm working outside of our sessions because I know she can see. I'm just starting to play with other features in the app but I like that she uses something that keeps track so I don't have to! I definitely recommend her if you're ready to add that extra component to your routine or if you're just getting started and need the motivation!!"

"I’m writing this review to tell you how Joe, Peter and the rest of the Body by Design team saved my life. I’m an interior designer and personal stylist so appearance is very important in my business and my life. I came to Body by Design when I was 5’ 3” inches tall and with my weight ballooning to nearly 200 pounds. I had been an emotional eater most of my life, but had never weighed or looked like this – I was too big and unhappy. Joe began working with me slowly, not just with physical training, but with emotional support and knowledge too. When I came to Body by Design, I had severe diabetes, high blood pressure and clinical depression – and littlelief that I could change things. I also love clothes. I had a closet full of beautiful designer clothes that I was too big to wear. Now after working out with Body by Design, my situation is completely different. I weigh 102.5 pounds and in my early 60’s look the best I ever have. Earlier this year the local TV station even did a story on my success, which I would never have imagined! I continue to train twice a week with Joe and my new, healthy weight has been stable for more than a year. My diabetes has disappeared and my doctor has taken me off medications for that and high blood pressure. My weight would have shortened my life, if not killed me, but now I have a new lease on life and Body by Design to thank."

"I started training with Lee one year ago and it was the best decision I ever made! I have lost the weight I wanted too and feel better than I ever have! I could not have done it without Lee! I work out with him twice a week and have been doing so for a year and he still introduces me to new exercises in each session! He coaches me on nutrition and counsels me on a healthy meal plan! I recommend everyone I know to Lee! I believe in him and his training 100%!!"

"Jonah is absolutely wonderful. He's experienced, professional, and a pleasure to be around. I always felt like he truly took into account my personal fitness needs, and he never failed to inspire me to keep pushing myself. I feel it is very important as a personal trainer to be simultaneously motivational and knowledgeable - Jonah definitely has both of those valued characteristics. I highly recommend him!"

"I had Derrick as my personal trainer for roughly a year or so when I was 18 years old. I had no knowledge regarding physical training despite being psychically active and playing sports growing up. Derrick took me to that next level. Wanting to gain muscle, overall size, and general knowledge, Derrick offered all the pieces to do so. He covered proper eating & diet habits, proper form when working out, and explained the many exercises to help me achieve my goals. Three years later now, I can thank Derrick for creating that solid foundation which has led to my passion for fitness."

"Victoria and all of the trainers at The Wellness Xchange have shown me an entirely new mindset to working out. As an athlete my whole life, I was focused on a different type of workout and training regiment. This year, they have shown me how fun and exciting working out can be again! No longer is it just lifting weights until I can't any longer. I now have the ability to workout with guidance, an amazing support system from others in my class, and an overall wellness program built for ME! I can't wait to continue working with this team of trainers and see how far I can push myself for success. With the constant variety in classes and exercises and personal training added in too, the sky is the limit!"

"I hired Eric as my personal trainer in September 2017. I have an athletic background but had not worked out in years so I was very depressed about my weight and personal appearance. I was looking for, not only for a personal trainer, but for a professional that understood what I was going through and could help encourage me and keep me motivated to stick with the sessions to meet my goals. Eric and I began working together 2-3x's per week and my progression and strength have improved dramatically. I worked through Eric's beginner program and now I'm on a more specific program that I will get a reward at the end of the training. Since September my appearance has changed drastically. I've lost 50 lbs and the weight training has kept me from having a lot of flab from the weight loss. I'm glad I chose Eric to be a part of my fitness team and will continue to work with him on this long-term journey."

"I am a long distance runner who started a strength training program with Aaron to address muscle weaknesses caused by sitting for a living and muscle imbalances caused by running long distances for the last five years. My goal was to prevent common running injuries and to address some issues with my knee. I have literally no interest in strength based exercise and have very little confidence when it comes to anything doesn’t involve stepping out my door and going for a run, hopping on a bike, or jumping in a pool. In fact, if you would have asked me when I first started whether I would be able or willing to commit to any kind of regular strength training program I would have told you flatly, no way. But Aaron makes it fun and interesting and I have been doing strength training sessions three times a week for about 6 months. Even better, I feel comfortable doing things on my own. He has really helped to boost my confidence when it comes to what seemed to me to be complicated exercises. He is really great at pointing out how I have improved and notices progress that I would never have been able to notice on my own. I would highly recommend Aaron."

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.
