Working with Logan has been wonderful. My husband and I found him through Thumbtack and have been training with him since January (2017). We have noticed considerable results during that time and couldn't be happier.

I've been going here since January 2018 to stay competition ready for my MMA fights. I've had nothing but great experiences/results! Shana & Brianne do an amazing job at working with you to reach your personal goals. They're meal plans & workouts are top notch and you can see the results within weeks! I haven't worked much with Ian but when I do it's always a good workout. They're all friendly & welcoming on top of being professional. I feel and look better than I have ever been in my fighting career! No matter what your goal is, I highly recommend Fitucate Nutrition & Training and all their staff! Keep up the great work!

Sara is a fellow teammate, but she has been competing and training in kettlebell sport for much longer than I have and has been a solid source of knowledge for me as I have become involved in kettlebell sport! She has been my go-to for advice on mobility, technique, and nutrition. Sara is positive, supportive, and full of knowledge. Her ability to improvise to best explain technique is unmatched!

BJ clearly does her homework. She took the time to understand my goals as well as my challenges, and tailored each workout to fit. She kept up on what other workouts I was doing, what races I participated in, and supported them with the strength training I needed to make sure I would get to the finish lines!

I've always had a hard time staying motivated, and usually stop with a training program a couple months in. I've been working with April for almost three (maybe four?) years now and am still loving it. My trainer, the program, the girls I work out with, everyone is great!

Ultimate Body Experience

    I haven't had a total body workout with the quickest results ever. I wanted to increase muscle strength and my body is much stronger all over not just in a few areas like some workout programs. Very well balanced workout, no muscle is left un-worked...;-)


    I am more personalized. I get one on one and can focus on the individual to help them conquer any goal and help them to see the result that they wish to have in a safe and time effective way.

    I have worked out at multiple gyms, and with multiple different trainers over the years. I must say, my experience with Lance and Real Fit has been unmatched! Not only have I seen results, but for the first time, I am truly excited to go to the gym! The workouts are completely catered to me, and what my body needs. Not to mention, they're fun, and I feel myself getting stronger! In the past, it was difficult for me to find a personal trainer that didn't make me feel judged or unknowledgeable. That is NOT the case with Lance & Real Fit. Even though I felt like a beginner, I was never treated like one. I was never made to feel stupid or out of my element, even though I had not been at the gym for a year prior to starting with Lance. If you want to train with someone who is highly knowledgeable, motivational, fun, and non judgemental, this is the place to be! I would be very comfortable recommending personal training from Lance and Real Fit to strangers as well as those that I know and love!

    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.
