"I am a first-time Thumbtack (and Vinnie Papandrea) user, and I am happy to report the experience has been remarkable! I requested a personal trainer to work out with me at my home and help me get some version of my pre-baby body backbefore my 40th birthday, which was six months away. I was connected with Vinnie and began working out a few days later.
Vinnie is awesome. We do circuit training with free weights, squats, lunges, jumping jacks, sit ups and lots of other quick, strenuousbut funexercises. I never get bored because we're always changing activities, and my heart rate stays up for the whole hour.
The best part? The boxing. At the end we get in 20 minutes of straight cardio with boxing exercises. As an advertising executive and a mom of a really smart and busy three and a half-year-old, I really like burning off calories and extra steam boxing with Vinnie.
I don't really enjoy exercising for exercising's sake, but I am having a whole lot of fun getting in shape with Vinnie. He's great at conversation, he's great at kicking your butt when you need it, and he's really great at getting results. I am very happy that I look and feel better after just two months.
