I had a GREAT experience working with Max. Starting out, he made it a point to ensure he understood my primary goals for these training sessions, and he designed workouts to help me meet those goals. I was rehabbing from knee surgery and having a difficult time gaining leg strength back on my own. Max developed creative and effective workouts to help me gain strength back in my injured leg. During the sessions he was extremely motivating and encouraging. I was a little intimidated at first about starting personal training, but Max's friendly and encouraging demeanor made me feel right at home at the gym. In addition to Max's skill as a personal trainer, he is a joy to be around. He is incredibly friendly and carries on conversation throughout the entire session, which is a nice distraction from the difficult workouts! Max is both his name and his level of awesomeness! :)

Malik has been such a great coach! He pushes me when I want to give up, and encourages me to keep going! I already see results with little over two weeks of training.

Although I do enjoy exercise, doing "training" exercises or weights has never been my favorite thing. Thanks to Laura, she has changed my mind. She individualizes the workouts for me and keeps them varied so that I stay motivated and energized to come back the next time. Laura's scheduling flexibility has also been a plus for someone like me, who works so many hours. Thanks, Laura!

Eric is an amazing trainer!!! He is so educated and positive about what he does, and it really shows through his training sessions. If you want to learn the proper techniques for kettlebell training, this is the man to see. He's so good at what he does! He takes extra care in watching form to make sure you're not causing yourself injury. He will take you through a great workout tailored to your skill level and body's needs, while building you into a stronger, more fit individual. If you're looking for one of the best trainers in the Raleigh area, look no further, he's right here.

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%!!

I've been training with Elton for about 6 weeks now. During this time I've seen a huge improvement in my strength, cardio and flexibility, and I'm on track for achieving my goals within the timeframe we set at the beginning. Each training session is hard work but so much fun and Elton always checks in on my diet and adjusts the exercises to best suit me. Since starting training with Elton I'm also sleeping better, eating better and feeling healthy and strong. I'm incredibly grateful that I found Elton and strongly recommend him for personal training.

I used to be very active in my early/mid 20s, but because I worked all the time and I injured my back (I had a herniated disc), i slowly started becoming less and less active until it got to a point where I gained a ton of weight and was completely out of shape. I weighed 174lbs (20lbs more than what I used to weigh) and was completely unhappy with myself. A couple months ago, I decided to take control of it and contacted Aaron after looking up several different personal trainers that could accommodate my schedule and had various qualifications. After meeting him the first time, I knew that he was extremely knowledgeable and would push me to achieve my goals, as well as make sure that I would not re-injure my back. I went to him twice a week for 2 months now, and because of it, along with a decent diet, I have now lost 15 lbs and am back into the physique that I used to be in. I cannot stress how satisfied that I am and how much I recommend people train under him. My girlfriend is even going to start training under him after seeing the results that I have gotten thus far. I HIGHLY recommend anyone of all ages/sizes/goals go to him.

I had a great experience working with DeMarcus Brooks. Starting out, he made sure he understood my primary goals and I understood his way of training. He was very creative and knowledgeable. For every training session, he designed a unique and effective workout plan which have helped me to progress and to gain lots of strength. DeMarcus was extremely motivating and encouraging to stay focused and determined to reach to my goals. He was definitely a professional personal trainer and a joy to be around. I highly recommend him to anyone who’s seeking quality and professionalism.

Lisa is a personal trainer who offers a comprehensive approach to training that covers strength, flexibility, balance, endurance and cardiovascular fitness. Her work-outs are always challenging, motivating, balanced and fun. She is able to deliver a tremendous amount of variety, keeping each training session fresh. Lisa is also understanding and mindful of individual goals and limitations. Every workout is a challenge but never so far out of my range/ability that I get frustrated. I would recommend Lisa to anyone who wants a customized and comprehensive fitness regime. She truly takes the time to understand her clients goals and needs.

When I set out to find options for exercise and a life adjustment I originally went to fitness centers. I came across BodyByCheeko online. I set up and appointment and immediately decided this would be my trainer. He listened to what I was looking to accomplish and also told me what I would need to do to accomplish that. He also did a 30 minute workout with me at the first visit. He has been my trainer since May 2013. 2 THUMBS UP

I have been at Lakeside Fitness for almost ten months. Within that time, I have lost weight, toned significantly and increased my flexibility. The workouts are rigorous, but fun and I look forward to going every week. The strength training has really improved my tennis game as well.

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 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.

After trying several personal trainers, I finally found one who helped me achieve real results. Luis combines weight training, boxing & cardio into his fitness plans in order to give you a complete training package. He challenges you to push outside of your comfort zone and encourages you each step of the way. Luis' training not only helped me achieve my weight loss goal, but also completely changed my lifestyle and my old thoughts about "dieting". I've learned how to maintain a healthy, lean body as part of my everyday life without crash diets and overtraining. Let Luis show you how he can help you on your way to a new healthy lifestyle. You'll be so happy you gave him a try!

Tom has been training me for almost two years. He has been very professional and easy to work with. In that time I have had goals that varied from losing weight to gaining strength. Tom does a great job of asking questions to get a full picture of my lifestyle choices outside the gym and how they work with my goals.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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.
