There's no waisting time with this guy, but that's what you would expect with a former military trainer. He pushes hard but obviously at the level you're at. I'm a beginner but it's clear he's a pro. He knows the body very well, and recognized my strengths and weaknesses the first session. Joey explains very thoroughly and has a lot of patience, I thought he would scream at me like a bootcamp trainer haha but he was actually very kind and professional. I highly recommend!

i have been training with Brenda for 9 months now and she is great! Before Brenda, I did have a very good trainer in another city but then I moved to NYC, so I knew what the standard was for someone who would push you but also understand your personal needs and tailor the workout to make sure you are satisfied. I used Thumbtack to find a trainer and read positive reviews about Brenda and decided to give it a try--she has lived up to all expectations. Her schedule is flexible so she can meet you when and where is best for you (some trainers' schedules are too packed and if you're 5 minutes late, they take 5 min off the end of your session, or do not let you reschedule a session without giving you a hard time). She tailors the workouts so if you want to do something on a particular day or are feeling a bit sore in one area, she will work around that but still make sure you are getting an intense workout. Brenda is friendly and personable to talk to and will advise you on anything from nutrition to specific workout regimens to improve a muscle group. It's important to find a trainer who you really get along with and feel comfortable around, and I have found it very easy to work with Brenda. I'm 100% satisfied--highly recommended!

The atmosphere is always positive; you are never just a client, Illysa takes a personal interest in each and everyone. Illysa is extremely dedicated to each person's goals and needs.

I joined Tim's Bootcamp classes in March of 2014. In just 2 months, I have lost 7.5 lbs, 6 inches in my waist, 1.5 inches in my hips, 4 inches from each thigh, and 2 inches from each arm. I am beyond excited with these results, but more importantly I feel better. I am feeling stronger, and I definitely have more energy. Tim is very helpful and encouraging. Classes are fun and all exercises can be modified for your needs. I highly recommend Total Non-Stop Training!

Karen has been my boot camp instructor at Personal Best in Garwood since Dec. 2009. Karen helped me to get back into shape. I wanted to get back into working out but was having a hard time at the Gym by myself. She provided me with exercises that were appropriate for my body and helped me to loose weight. Each boot camp class is different, which I like a lot! She pushes me to perform at my best, which is what I need. I even continued to attend Karen's bootcamp classes during my two pregnancies, and she helped to modify the exercises for me, plus she was very knowledgable about what I could and couldn't do while pregnant. Thank you! :)

I worked with Marlon for 3+ years and throughout that time was able to reach a level of fitness that I was unable to achieve on my own. Rather than just moving from machine to machine in the gym (which was always my past experience) he combined functional movements, HIIT, body weight exercises and Bootcamp style drills to keep me motivated and see results.

Jonathan is such an awesome instructor and really pushes everyone in the best way possible. The whole class becomes a family since you're spending every morning together 5 days a week. Unfortunately I moved away and had to stop going to bootcamp, but it was some of the best workouts I ever got with the best people. Jonathan isn't just there for the physical aspect he helps with your nutrition as well. I definitely would not be as happy with my body if it wasn't for our daily emails and him keeping me on track! I can't wait to pop into a class randomly when I'm in Nutley. I cannot put into words how much I value him as a bootcamp instructor and as a person- he is one of a kind. :)

I have been working out with Anthony and Cedric for about five months now. They are hands down the toughest trainers in the game. They've pushed me to my limits, kept me extremely motivated and have taught me so much. But the best part about training with these guys was seeing their ability to recognize what I personally needed to work on and teaching me how to strengthen my weaknesses in a way that I was able to easily understand. Not everyone is comfortable working out in a gym, but with either of these guys by my side, I felt more confident and capable than ever before. If anybody ever came to me saying they wanted to lose weight, get toned, feel better about themselves or just see results in general, I would send them their way without hesitation! Getting to train with them is a privilege that I am thankful for every single day.

My time spent in the Untamed Beings Bootcamp was challenging, tiresome, and straineous in the best ways imaginable. The head trainer Eric McClain is an excellent motivator, clear and fluent demonstrator, and one to make you feel comfortable not only with new excersizes, but with pushing your limits. I would recommend to anyone looking for a physical challenge with tremendous payoff.

Not anything like your typical generic, dime-a-dozen personal trainer, Len is focused, driven, and dedicated to each and everyone of my sessions. Even after nearly two years of training, Len continues to find new and creative exercises to ensure that my training is always effective, and never boring. Not once does he look at his cell phone, or appear apathetic or indifferent. His enthusiasm and commitment to my fitness is quite contagious! Never have I been more motivated to fitness than when I started training with Len, and unlike Crossfit, I am not left sore and crippled the next day. He's the real deal.

    Before working with Destiny, I was thinking about training for about a year (or two) because the gym and bootcamps were not getting me the results I wanted. Long story short, I started with Destiny 6 months ago. I have to admit, it was slow moving for the first two months because we only met once a week and I didn't do what I was supposed to. Just when I was going to give up.. I gave it one last go and asked her what I needed to do to get exactly what I wanted.. I didnt like what she had to say but I jumped in..made the investment in her..but really me and my only regret is that I didn't start sooner!! If you are thinking about it..do it! I recommend Destiny with my strongest muscle! You may not like everything you have to do but you will be happy you did!! I am very happy with the changes I see in my body! I feel confident!

      I took a few bootcamp classes before, but I was truly impressed after I tried Xceed. The wide variation of exercises provided a true full body workout and I felt great after I left the class. There was a good group of people and we all had great time. The instructors are awesome ans made the class fun. They also offer nutritional planning and the price is cheaper than any local bootcamps. Im definitely looking forward to coming back.

      What's a Guerrero? Guerrero is Spanish for warrior. We all have the warrior inside us that wants to be free. I teach and train you to "unleash your inner warrior" to accomplish any goals your heart desires! A true warrior is relaxed in body and mind, in stressful situations in life, and other areas are fun challenges to a Guerrero. But I just want to workout, so why? Being relaxed in the mind and body is the ultimate key in losing weight. Cortisol keeps your body in a gaining weight mode and makes you feel like crap. Exercise is consciously applied stress to mind and body, so if you have a hard time relaxing majority of the day, it will make burning fat 10 times harder. Training is 80% mental. What to expect at Guerreros? Guerreros Mind Body Bootcamp offers a unique class that blends cardio core strength conditioning, martial arts movement, yoga, and meditation to promote a safe and faster progress in balanced body and mind. Don't just be a gym member. Be a Guerrero!

      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.
