"I found Tree of Life Wellness Center through its retail storefront, Kindred Spirits. (More on their offerings, below). I was searching for an avenue to explore certain gifts and callings I'd always had, and buried, for most of my life. I'd visited the store itself and liked the crystals, books, herbs, etc, but didn't realize it was the tip of the iceberg as far as offerings from its owner, Antonina Whaples. She does not put on airs and, unless she wanted you to know, you could go a lifetime without realizing you were talking to a powerful, lineaged shaman and medicine woman. She looks like a pretty, stylish, 20-something young professional. All to say: you can feel comfortable no matter who you are when seeking her services. But don't underestimate. :) I began by signing up for a psychic gifts class held after hours in the sacred space off the main store. Honestly I was nervous this would be like all the other avenues I tried in the past: stereotypical witchy-women only goth settings with velvet curtains, wiccan vernacular, and only candles for light. Because that's how *I* used to be!! And there's nothing wrong with that, however, here's the takeaway: I never had to try so hard. Psychic class was four women, led by Antonina, and we learned applicable techniques over the course of 3 hours. I was so impressed with how her teachings stayed with me that I began one on one sessions (at less than I'd pay most therapists). Antonina is not a Western medical doctor but she IS committed to being the catalyst for positive change, holding space as you discover your gifts and how to apply them in your life. She works with everyone from high end professionals to transient roamers to students, and with her own teachers as well. What I like the most is that Antonina will not come right out and tell you trite nonsense. Nor will she play new age-y mind games with you. She is there as a guide to help YOU make the discoveries. A year and a half later, I am one of Antonina's shamanic apprentices. I still listen to punk music, work out in a gym, and have a day job. But I'm also learning Reiki, beekeeping, deepening my knowledge of herbalism (check out her herbal school!!), participating in ceremony, healing my PTSD, and most of all learning to trust in the "mysterious coincidences" which happen All the Time (you'll see what I mean!). When you sign up as a TOLWC student, you don't just get an hour or a class; you get someone who will do their best to be there for questions and will respect your boundaries as you respect hers. Tree of Life Wellness Center has an extensive list of offerings including: personal healing and development sessions, Reiki classes for certification, doula services, crystal healing, shamanic work, ancestral healing, tarot, herbalism, Chinese medicine, psychic services, and year-round ceremonies open to the public for a reasonable fee. P.S. If you made it this far in the review, I'll add that healing work is DEEP and designed to change your life, not act as a feel good band-aid. Antonina is a person you can break down and cry in front of without fear of judgement. I speak from experience. My life is so much better and more authentic now, proving that the rocky road can be a path to greatness. Like, she's not gonna tell you to never come back if yer bawlin'."

"Are you ready to take charge of your life again? Then look no further, the trainers at the Wellness Xchange are absolutely phenomenal. I've been training with Victoria and her assistant Bridget for the last 3 months and they have NOT disappointed.  From the very moment I stepped into the facility, I felt a sense of peace come over me.  The atmosphere and staff are so inviting. My first session with them was an unfamiliar yet extremely exhilarating Surfset class. It was intense but it was worth it, the amount of excitement that rushed through my body as I envisioned myself vacationing on Miami beach tackling the waves was moving.  I'd only stopped by in hopes to lose a couple pounds, tone up, and be on my way.  But the ladies had another idea in mind.  Victoria specializes in Sports Physiology and adherence, in which her focus is not only of sculpting the physique but also sculpting the mind.  I've only been apart of the Transformation program for 3 months now and I feel amazing.  I use to workout WHEN I had time with trainers at different facilities in and around the areas I've lived but I haven't ran into anything quite as unique as what they have going on here.  They guarantee results and well lets just say I'm 25lbs lighter and everyone around me has noticed my outlook on life has changed as well.  My energy levels are through the roof, I've never felt so strong or looked so strong in my entire adult life.  And with all of that said, I have the confidence to recommend the WXC to anyone I know."

"Absolutely exceptional in every single way. Josh is without a doubt the most friendly, positive, and supportive trainer ever. I had the pleasure of training with Josh for about 8 months and it truly was a great learning experience. I had been looking for a trainer for quite some time and I was fortunate to meet Josh through an old friend, not realizing that we attended the same high school and college together. Crazy, right?! I found him to be very knowledgeable, but more importantly he is very genuine and truly cares about his clients. I've always been fairly active, but never really pushed myself to the limit. During my 1:1’s with Josh, he was really good at motivating me to not only push myself, but also encouraged me to work out independently. He knows a lot and he shares it all. Never judgmental and always in it 1000 percent! Personal training and fitness is not just his profession, but a compassion that challenges you to maximize your potential and make lifestyle changes. To sum it all up, Josh is a true professional, perfect gentlemen, hard worker, great conversationalist, and overall a DOPE person/trainer! :) I hope to one day continue training with him in the future!"

"I absolutely love how welcoming and positive this facility is. Unlike most gyms or fitness centers you go to where you have that uncomfortable feeling, this place makes you feel like you fit in. John Driver is THE BEST trainer/nutritional adviser. He pushes you to be better and do better and he’s super encouraging. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!"

"I started training initially with JR and I now train with Nahjerrelle. I recommend both of these trainers, and from what I have observed of the other trainers in a gym any one of them would be a great choice. JR is customer service oriented and had a lot of patience sitting down and discussing my goals before we began to train. During training JR ensured I understood the exercises and why I was doing them, and the benefits they would have on my body. Nahjerrelle is also a great trainer he takes his time demonstrating exercises, does not rush you, and ensures your form is correct, all while encouraging you to put your best foot forward. My results so far have been invaluable both mentally and physically. You can't go wrong with Force Fitness."

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.
