"Angi has been my friend for many years, but a couple of months ago she became my coach! She took me from zero physical fitness to successfully completing 3 rounds of the 21 Day Challenge where she helped me lose nearly 40 pounds!! Angi was always there motivating me and pushing me when I needed it! The Challenge Groups are amazing for holding you accountable and keeping you focused! Angi is now coaching me through Insanity Max 30!! She has completely transformed the way I approach nutrition and thanks to her guidance and encouragement I have a new found love for physical fitness! "

"I have been a client of Luke's for over 3 years and he is excellent. I've worked with other personal trainers but none as dedicated as Luke. It's not just a job with him, it's his passion. His sessions are always varied, never boring and demonstrate great results. Unfortunately he moved away from Virginia to North Carolina (my loss their gain), otherwise I'd still be working out with him 2x a week. Not only is he a terrific personal trainer, he is also such a nice guy and a pleasure to work with. I cannot recommend Luke highly enough!"

"Trevor is an amazing trainer. He works hard to have great energy the entire time throughout the workout. No other instructor will break down and help teach you exercises in such a good manner. I've started training 3x a week with Trevor and have seen significant changes with my body, confidence and agility. I enjoy that Trevor keep me accountable of my food intake and when I'm not training with him. I particularly enjoy resistance stretching exercises he can teach me that I can do at home. But I enjoy to do personal training as well as boxing with him every week."

"I definetly recommend Will to everyone who is ready to get healthy and needs that extra encouragement. He knows health and fitness inside and out and if I had a question for him that he didn't know the answer to, he found it out for me. He loves what he does and it shows, I felt like he truly listened to me and cared about my health goals as much as I did. Unlike other trainers I have worked with, He is not pushy but is encouraging and helped me set realistic goals that were possible for me to reach. I can't say enough good things about him and would honestly not be where I am today without him!"

"I have worked with several personal trainers before and working with Liam Johnson Fitness made me feel so amazing! Working with Liam, he makes sure he explained everything to me as well as ensuring any and everything I was doing matched not only my ability but also my overall wellness goal. He is an all around wellness coach in my opinion! He specializes in Nutrition, Fitness, and overall wellness! I can truly say that I live a more fulfilled life since working with him. My energy is better, I feel amazing, and as a result of his awesome materials I look great too! If you haven't worked with him yet you are truly missing out on changing your life for the better! Can't wait to say I told you so!!!"

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.
